The United Nations has released its 2014 World Drug Report, and Australia has emerged with the not-so envious distinction of having a higher proportion of drug users than any other country in the world.
No. 1 in Ecstasy use
9NewsNational reports that the UN report pegged Australians as the top users of ecstasy in the world. The country also came in second, third, fourth, and seventh for opioid, methamphetamine, cocaine, and cannabis use, respectively. Worse, the report says drug use in all categories is bound to increase, as there is “a wide range of drug analogues and new psychoactive substances currently available in the Australian illicit drug market.”
This is a major cause for concern, considering the likelihood that many of these drug users are actually employed in various organisations in Australia. If anything, that should give us all the more reason to be alert and on the lookout for drug use by employees and colleagues in the workplace through our drug testing efforts. We at Frontline Diagnostics can help in this regard. Please contact us for a confidential discussion.
