What’s in our wastewater? (Drugs)

Australians are using more cocaine, methamphetamine, and MDMA than last year. How do we know this? It’s according to new sewage analysis by the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission, who have been testing Aussie wastewater since 2016. Today on the podcast, we speak to Shane Neilson, CIC’s Acting National Manager of Data Analytics, about what else this data tells us about Australian’s drug consumption.
