In China, the past two decades have witnessed the rising popularity of synthetic drugs, which has profoundly changed the previous drug consumption structure that was dominated by heroin. Synthesizing the results reflected in official statistics and our empirical studies, this letter describes the drug use patterns in China from past to present. The increasing synthetic drug use in China is consistent with the global trend and new anti-drug policies in the world need to be developed to face such challenges.
