The fact sheet presents a table that includes commonly used drugs along with the approximate measurements and average costs in Queensland. The table provides information on the amounts typically used during a session or on an average day, as well as what a heavy use day may look like. The main purpose of the guide is to assist workers who may not be familiar with drugs in gaining a better understanding of drug measurements and costs when working with people who use drugs.


Please note, these are approximate prices based on Queensland Ecstasy and Related Drugs Reporting System (EDRS) and Illicit Drug Reporting System (IDRS) findings for 2022. Prices may vary from region to region and may change based on availability and purity/strength of the substance and/or demand.
