We investigated preference of stimulant safer substances.
58.5% (n = 193) chose crystal methamphetamine, 13% (n = 43) crack cocaine and 12.4% (n = 41) cocaine powder. The options that were available by prescription at the time of data collection were chosen by under 11% of participants (dextroamphetamine n = 21, methylphenidate n = 15). A preference for crystal methamphetamine was associated with being 29 and under compared to 50 and over; self-identifying as a cis man versus a cis woman; and using drugs every day or a few times a week compared to a few times a month.
Data from the 2021 Harm Reduction Client Survey. 330 participants reported a stimulant safer supply preference.
