  1. Great graphic, I was lucky enough to work for the NTA in the heady days of harm-minimisation orientated treatment and the one below shows why I left. Awful to see that drug related deaths are increasing. But it is missing anything on acquisitive crime, which is commonly drug related also. My suspicion is that that is also increasing, hence Scottish police advocating heroin on prescription?
