6. Questions on the use of individual NPS have been included in the 2010 and 2013 waves of SALSUS, although the specific substances asked about have changed over time. This is in part due to the changing nature of the drugs (the chemical formulas used have changed over time as have the names). Also a number of drugs that were once categorised as NPS have been classified as illicit drugs over the years. It is, therefore, not possible to make comparisons between reported use of NPS in the 2015 survey and the 2013 survey.
