New Drug Use Monitoring in Australia report shows how the methamphetamine market has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 

  • Since the pandemic began, the availability and quality of methamphetamine have decreased, prices have increased and consumption has declined.
  • The impact of the pandemic on the methamphetamine market varied by location, with more disruption identified in Perth than in Brisbane or Adelaide.
  • Almost one-third of respondents (30%) bought larger quantities of methamphetamine during the pandemic to avoid a possible shortage in product, and 28 percent had used other substances as a substitute for methamphetamine.
