A new slogan for London's Drug Tsar?

"Drugs? How provincial"

Because, apparently, "New figures published today show fewer young Londoners are using drugs, particularly cocaine. The report also reveals that...both drug use and alcohol consumption by young people is lower in London than the rest of the UK".

I found it pretty hard to credit, but I suspect that the lower incidence of booze use has much to do with the number of Islamic-types in the capital.

Data broken down to 16-24 year old users in London and England & Wales shows the greatest disconnect with steroids, glue (See what I mean about the slogan?) , speed, tranquilisers and LSD, these being more popular outside the Great Wen than within. By way of contrast, ecstacy is bigger in these parts.

More later, maybe.

Is this based on one of those "how many drugs do you take?" surveys? I am a big consumer of large pinches of salt.
