Drug Abuse at Czech Dance Parties Report

The new study of the Czech Office for Drug Research, Prevention and Treatment, called Dance and Drugs revealed new data about situation in the Czech Republic. The changes are in age and monetary situation – visitors of dance parties (not just in Prague) are getting older and richer. This is featured as the reason of leaning from cheaper marijuana and extasy to more expensive cocaine.

From over 2500 respondents, only 7,5% stated they have never tried an illegal drug. On the contrary, 3/4 have had a drug in a month time before the research took place. In 2003, 20,1% dancers admitted their experience with cocaine, now in 2008 the percentage increased to 30,9%.
