World Health Organization (WHO) defines amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) as a group of drugs that are mainly consisted of amphetamine and methamphetamine. There are few drugs under this group such as methcathinone, fenetylline, ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, methylphenidate and MDMA or 'ecstasy' (WHO, 2014). Recent statistics have shown an increase in the number of ATS abusers worldwide including its markets, the seizures and consumption level and its manufacturing. Based on the World Drug Report in 2013, the use of ATS, excluding 'ecstasy', remains widespread globally, and appears to be increasing in most regions. In 201 l, it is estimated 0.7yo of the global population aged 15-64, or 33.g million people, had used ATS in the preceding year. Meanwhile, the prevalence of .ecstasy, in 2011 (19.4 million, or 0.4 per cent of the population) was reported to be lower than in 2009 (UNODC, 2013).
