Meth remains Australia's illicit drug of choice, report says

Customs seized over 320kg methamphetamine 577kg of its precursors and 55kg of cocaine at our border in 2017

South Australia has the highest per capita consumption of methylamphetamine, known as "ice", in the country as it's revealed one in 10 people in Adelaide had at least one dose of the drug every day in October, the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission's [ACIC] March report reveals.

Western Australia has had the highest average regional consumption of the drug in December, the report reveals.

The regional WA results suggest 65 doses of the drug were taken for every thousand people each day, compared with a national average of just below 40 doses.

The National Wastewater Drug Monitoring Program report by the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission was released on Thursday and showed an overall increase in illicit drug use across Australia in comparison with the previous report.

Victoria and the ACT recorded the nation's highest average capital city heroin intake.

Mr Taylor told The West Australian that the figures were concerning, particularly given "there is no sign of improvement in WA".


"That ice was produced locally even five, six years ago", he said.

It was described federal Law Enforcement Minister Angus Taylor as an extraordinary amount.

Asked to speculate on why WA had such a strong appetite for meth, Taylor said the state's open coastline made it an attractive target for drug traffickers. He also cited over 3 tonnes of cocaine, 1.2 tonnes of MDMA and 700 kilograms of heroin.

Hastie said there are a lot of positives happening in Mandurah, but the drug issue continues to linger.

"We do have a problem and we have widespread community support for this trial". Authorities said evidence of the manufacture of methamphetamine was seized from the property.
