Illegal drugs cause Rp57 trillion loss to Indonesia PONTIANAK, WEST KALIMANTAN - Official from the National Anti-Narcotics Body (BNN) Mariani said illegal drug use is to cause Rp57 Trillion loss to Indonesia this year which is an increase if compared to 2008`s number of Rp25 Trillion.

"Calculation is based on the money spent to buy illegal drugs, medical treatment for drug users, rehabilitation and other activities related to it," said the BNN`s Chief of Non Therapeutic Community Sub Unit.

She added a national survey conducted by BNN and the University of Indonesia last 2011 showed that the number of drug users in Indonesia also increased from 3.1-3.6 million people (1.9 percent of total population) in 2008 to 3.8 million in 2011 (2.2 percent of the country`s total population).

According to the results of a national survey conducted by BNN and University of Indonesia (UI) in 2011, of the 3.8-4.7 million drug users, about one-third used performance-boost drug Amphetamine-Type Stimulants (ATS), 1.2 million used Crystalline Methamphetamine (popularly known as Shabu) and 950,000 others used ecstasy.

Meanwhile, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) program coordinator Tun Nay Soe warned Indonesia of a possible increase in the use of ATS drugs in the country.

"The large licit requirements of ephedrine and pseudo ephedrine for industrial purpose in Indonesia heighten the risk that these substances may be misused for production of ATS," he said.

He made it clear that more drug traffickers are interested in producing ATS since it can be manufactured everywhere (in small apartment or housing complex) and they only need to mix it with chemicals.

The estimated market value of ATS in Indonesia is also promising. With the average market street price of around Rp1.3 million (YS$145) per gram, the Crystalline Methamphetamine trade in Indonesia generated an estimated Rp16 trillion (US$1.8 billion) in revenues in 2011.
