      I work specifically with amphetamines, so I don’t really get to see the relative popularity of drugs outside of that field myself, although within amphetamines, methamphetamine is by far the mostly widely used!

      In terms of general drug use, the most popular illegal drug (or at least illegal in many places, including Ireland) is actually cannabis, in terms of the percentage of the population that have tried it.
