Italy: Drug report 2007

June 27, 2008

The last report about the use of drug in 2007 admitted that in Italy use of cannabis is increased.

Last year 32413 people has been signaled to authorities: 73% for cannabis,16% for cocaine and 8% for heroin and 26985 people has been arrested, more than in 2006

The use of cocaine is increased in 2006,but not in 2007.On the other hand, in 2007 use of cannabis is increased and 14 Italians on 1000 between 15 and 64 years old have admitted and 14% had used cannabis more than one time in 2007.

320000 people has been cared for drug: 205000 for heroin and 154000 for cocaine.

84,6% of Italians are against the use of every drug and 89,8% believe is danger.70% is worried and 80% is against the use of cannabis. More people are against cannabis respect 2006.

I believe real number of cannabis smokers is more higher, and not so many people (80%) are against the use.
Younger Italians, particularly, are less worried about cannabis.

I’m afraid in 2009 a new and more strong wave of repression will beat us…
