The Drug Checking Service aims to approach the drug user population and improve knowledge on the dynamics that occur in the illegal drug market. The information gathered allows acting quickly regarding emergent phenomenon and adapting the responses to the new needs.
Although we should highlight the limitations of extrapolating the data collected by Energy Control, they do provide us a first approximation of what are the most consumed drugs and their composition.
The samples were analyzed at the IMIM (Medical Research Institute of Hospital del Mar), located in the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB), collaborating with EC since the year 2000.
The 2015 report describes the composition of the main analyzed substances in Spain (MDMA, Cocaine, Speed, Ketamine and LSD). In the case of ecstasy (MDMA), its composition varies depending on whether it is in crystal form or dosed in tablets. Therefore, in this report, they are presented separately, by the format in which this substance has appeared in our analysis service. For more information consult this article, that details the differences in ecstasy samples tested over a period of 15 years.
