In January 2006 ketamine shifted from medical regulation through the Medicines Act to a Class C drug through an amendment to the Misuse of Drugs Act. In the debate surrounding this criminalisation, interest has grown in prevalence and patterns of ketamine consumption. Such information is scarce however, particularly given that ketamine has yet to be included in the British Crime Survey or most other surveys of youth and young adult drug use. Here Karenza Moore and Fiona Measham reveal the true extent of ketamine use, who is using it and how.
