In Canada right now, it’s arguably more important than ever to understand how people are using drugs and how they’re getting them.

With cannabis verging on legalization and regulation by July 2018, and as the opioid crisis continues to claim thousands of lives due to the proliferation of fentanyl, we are experiencing a pivotal moment for drugs in this country.

And in this moment, you can help show Canada’s place in the world of drugs by taking the Global Drug Survey.

Take the Global Drug Survey 2018 here.

It’s anonymous and open to anyone over the age of 16. The survey will take about 15-30 minutes and “a bit longer if you have used lots of drugs recently.”

In addition to the regular fare that asks all sorts of questions about drugs and how they intersect with your life, the survey will be looking at fentanyl, its effects, and how people are getting it. It will also look at cannabis in-depth, what age people lose their drug virginity at, and pill testing.

Over 115,000 people across the world took part in the Global Drug Survey last year. To learn more about the survey this year, go to its website, and if you feel so inclined to participate, answer the questions.
