These also are not proposals for evidence-based policy-making. III. Evidence-based policy-making? It may simply have been unrealistic to imagine that the Labour government would take its evidence-based policy rhetoric seriously in relation to crime.

While the focus of the study was on the group’s experience of treatment, respondents were also asked about their involvement in crime. Most of the sample had criminal records, usually long ones. The start of their criminal career more often than not predated that of the problematic drug career: a minority (36 respondents) said that their criminal careers had been prompted by drug use. Although most were involved in acquisitive crime before they started using crack, the drug led to very steep increases in offending rates and broadened the range of offences they committed.

The largest relevant research study is the NEW-ADAM survey (Bennett 1998, 2000; Bennett et al 2001) which drug-tests and interviews samples of arrestees. The latest sweep of the survey found that 65 per cent of all arrestees tested (1,435) were positive for some form of illicit drug, with 24 per cent testing positive for opiates and 15 per cent for cocaine. The average weekly expenditure on drugs, for heroin and crack/cocaine users, was £290. The main sources of illegal income during the last 12 months were property crime (theft, burglary, robbery, handling stolen goods and fraud/deception) followed by drug dealing and undeclared earnings while claiming social security benefits.
