Dear reader

Welcome to the Mixmag Drugs Survey 2012 in partnership with the Guardian. This year we hope to produce the biggest – and first truly global – survey of drug use amongst young people, clubbers and the wider drug using population ever conducted. It takes about 10-20 minutes to fill in, is completely anonymous and by being part of it, you could help change the world.

That’s because the Mixmag / Guardian Drugs survey is where the world goes to find out real peoples’ attitudes to and experience of drugs, and the medical, social and law enforcement consequences of drug use. The survey has been used by doctors, academics, and even governments across the planet to understand drug trends, to influence policy and to inform their decisions.

The analysis is performed by a team of doctors and scientists, using the highest professional research standards, to get to the real truth about drugs.

The results of this survey will be published in the April 2012 issue of Mixmag, at mixmag.net, and in the Guardian’s UK [http://www.guardian.co.uk] and US [http://www.guardiannews.com] online editions.
