Drugs Information and Monitoring System (DIMS)
Due to the corona pandemic, DIMS has seen a decline in the number of drugs handed in at the testing facilities. Especially party drugs like ecstasy were less abundant, arguably because of the absence of festivals. The annual report 2020 covers the concentrations, adulterations, and other relevant information produced by DIMS in the past year, and in doing so forms a topical image of the Dutch drug market.
Spread out over all Dutch provinces, the DIMS network encompasses 32 testing-facilities providing nation-wide coverage. Together with these partners, DIMS aims to create a clear insight into the Dutch drug market, and signal potential health risks to the public.
