Brisbane, Mar 27 (UNI) Australians are the biggest users of the 'Ecstasy' drug in the world, according to an Australian news report.

A series of police intelligence reports obtained by 'The Australian' daily cite intelligence and UN figures on drug use which reveal that 'Ecstasy' is becoming mainstream and that supplies of the drug remain unhindered by crackdown on syndicates importing and manufacturing the dangerous party drug.

Besides being first in 'Ecstasy' use, the UN World Drug Report has also ranked Australians as second in 'Amphetamine' use worldwide. Almost twice as many Australians use 'Ecstasy' (3.4 per cent) compared to the next-highest nationality, the British (2.0 per cent).
