This year’s report includes data from two new sites in Melbourne and Darwin, to give a broader picture of drug use and criminal activity across Australia. The report provides comprehensive data for 2006 and trend analysis from the start of the program in 1999. In 2006 more than half the detainees tested positive to cannabis, one-quarter to methylamphetamine, and 10% to heroin.
