Cocaine use among a sample of police detainees

17 Nov 2004
Description

Lee Milner and Kiah McGregor examine the use of cocaine among a group of individuals detained by police and interviewed for the AIC's Drug Use Monitoring in Australia (DUMA) program. The analysis shows that while most cocaine use occurs in DUMA's Sydney sites, use also occurs in other areas. Cocaine users are predominately multiple-drug users and are also likely to test positive to other drugs, especially heroin. They are also more likely to have had prior contact with the criminal justice system than non-cocaine users, and to report deriving an income from crime.
