Facts and stats
There are nearly 1 million drug addicts registered in China, however the state government estimates that the actual number is likely to be far higher, possibly as high as 12 million.
More than 83.7% of these are male, and 73.9% are below the age of 35.
The most popular illegal drugs in China are heroin, opium, morphine and crystal meth. MDMA has experienced a surge in popularity in urban areas where young people have more free time. Ketamine use is also on the increase, especially amongst the young.
Different drugs are more popular in the many regions and provinces.
China’s geographical location makes it a prime target for drug traffickers, close to both the sources of drugs and their markets.
It is particularly close to the 'Golden Triangle', one of the major opium producing regions in Asia.
Drug trafficking in China can potentially carry a death sentence.
In 2003, more than 4 tons of heroin were seized by the Chinese authorities.
In the same year, 31,400 people were arrested for drug-related offences, with 25,879 convictions.
Due to the size of China’s drug trade, organised criminal gangs are heavily involved in trafficking. These gangs are often armed, and there are frequent firefights both between gangs and with the police along the Chinese and Burmese borders.
