Call for Information from within the NT AOD sector about synthetic substances

Date posted: 11 October 2016

There has been some concern raised around the use of synthetic substances in the Northern Territory again in recent weeks. The Association of Alcohol and Other Drug Agencies Northern Territory (AADANT) have provided online information regarding synthetic cathinone, commonly known as bath salts, as well as synthetic cannabis. AADANT has also called out to agencies or individuals who have had some contact with people using these substances.

1.2% of Australians aged 14 years or older (about 230,000 people) had used synthetic cannabis in 20131. This is the first time data has been collected on this drug by the National drug strategy household survey.

For more information and to see the original story, please see the information below.
