In the largest ever survey of drug use among British clubbers, published in this month's edition of Mixmag, there were found to be large year-on-year falls in the number of people taking cannabis (by five percentage points), ketamine (10), ecstasy (five) and cocaine (20). The British Crime Survey tends to underestimate drug use (because it does not include people who are homeless, in prison, or living in student accommodation), and these falls are not the first, but they do cement a trend that is now too solid to ignore. In this country at least, for reasons that remain mysterious, drugs seem to be going out of fashion....
Is this due to the decline of electronic music scene/raves/super clubs from the mainstream population? It can't be a coincidence. Generation ecstasy have all grown up and got kids now and the party days are over for most.
Plus lets be honest how many times have you heard people say that they (cocaine/ecstasy)just aren't as good as they used to be. If dealers sell rubbish drugs for lots of money, people eventually wont bother to buy them, they will find something else....The new generation of kids have found legal highs and super weed which is more available and reliable.
