Average price of ecstasy in the Netherlands 2008-2017 For drugs users on a budget in the Netherlands, ecstasy is probably the most budget-friendly option. Although prices doubled between 2008 and 2017, in the most recent available year a pill of ecstasy was sold on average for four euros, or about half the price of a gram of amphetamine that year. Cannabis was slightly more expensive, at around ten euros, but buying cocaine was by far the most expensive, at nearly 50 euros per gram.
 Ecstasy use on the rise 

  Since 1997, the Trimbos Instituut monitors drugs use among teenagers and adults in the Netherlands. Their survey results indicate that in the last 20 years, ecstasy use more than tripled. Whereas in 1997, 2.3 percent of respondents stated to have used the drug at least once, by 2017 this had increased to nearly eight percent. The share of regular users also increased in this period, peaking in 2016 at one percent. In 2017, 0.8 percent of survey participants answered to have used ecstasy in the past month.

Ecstasy popular among young

  According to the most recent survey, ecstasy use was especially popular among the younger generation. Of the 20 to 24 years old, nearly five percent had taken a pill in the past month. Among the 25-29 years old, this was 1.8 percent. By comparison, only 0.1 percent of the respondents 65 years and older had experience using ecstasy that recently.
