dc.description.abstract Ireland is likely to enter a severe economic recession. A relatively small body of international research shows that drug consumption and dealing have previously increased during recessions and economic downturns, although there are important variations across national and local markets. Separate studies in Greece, Italy and Spain during the last recession found: increased problematic drug use (Greece), increase cannabis consumption (Spain), and, reduced heroin and cocaine consumption coupled with increased cannabis and amphetamine consumption (Italy). Whereas, Ireland witnessed a decline in net drug consumption, partly because of the large numbers who emigrated for work (that is, some may have consumed more drugs, but they did so in London and Toronto rather than Dublin and Cork). We also witnessed increases in cannabis cultivation and, heroin and Xanax consumption in some areas. en
