The rapid proliferation of new drugs available to Australians has necessitated the use of innovative techniques to monitor their emergence. In this presentation, Monica uses the example of NBOMe drugs (reportedly sold as
‘legal LSD’) to outline 4 ways of monitoring drug use trends online and in real-time (Google Trends, drug user forums, Twitter, and Silk Road). These tools are freely available for use by clinicians, AOD workers and researchers who are seeking further information about new drugs presented by clients, or that are talked about in their work.
