Amsterdam, Eindhoven and Utrecht consistently show up in the top ten cities for average drug use, according to a new study published today. The research looked at wastewater samples taken in 45 different cities or city districts between 2011 and 2013, with samples analyzed for cocaine, amphetamines, methamphetamines, MDMA (ecstasy) and THC from marijuana use. Samples were taken over a one-week period in each year.
60 percent of young people between 20 and 24 who go out, used ecstasy at least once in the last year, according to new research from the Trimbos Institute.
While the police was thinking to raid a cannabis grower, they discovered a large XTC lab. The police announced on Wednesday that the lab had a daily capacity of 200 kilogram of MDMA, the active ingredient in XTC pills.
How much MDMA actually was produced in the lab near Rosmalen has to be revealed by further investigation. No arrests have been made yet.
All drugs found in the building have been confiscated by the police. The SWAT team will guard the place on Wednesday evening since there is still a stock of chemicals in the building.
