Council of Europe. Co-operation Group to Combat Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking in Drugs (Pompidou Group). (1998) Heroin seizures as an indicator of variation in market situations, drug availability and heroin use in Europe: report to the Pompidou Group. Strasbourg: Council of Europe.

Drug seizures are considered to be an indirect indicator of the supply and availability of drugs. This report, from an EU wide perspective, looks at heroin seizures, availability and usage, changing crime patterns, increase in drug use, and harm reduction. Conclusion includes discussion on whether a 'zero tolerance' vs. 'harm reduction' polarised approach is appropriate and the concept of the 'generations of users'. Policy implications and recommendations included.
