What do you think about drug use?

21 January 2019

This is an online survey that aims to investigate what the public think about issues related to illegal drug use - even if you don't have strong opinions either way.

You'll be asked to read through some scenarios that relate to people who have taken drugs, and we'll ask you for your opinion on what you have read. There are no right or wrong answers.

You will then be asked to complete a short questionnaire asking about yourself so we get a general understanding of who has taken part.
