58 5.8.2 Availability As was the case in 2009 and 2010, the majority of respondents (54%) rated illicit morphine as currently easy to obtain (Figure 34). The proportion of those who considered illicit morphine as difficult to obtain reduced to 20% from 27% in 2010. Figure 34: Current availability of illicit morphine, % commented, 2003-2011 Source: IDRS participant interviews In 2011, 60% of respondents considered that illicit morphine availability had remained stable over the preceding six months (Figure 35), an increase from the 46% who rated availability as stable in 2010. Figure 35: Change in availability of illicit morphine in the last six months, % commented, 2011 Source: IDRS participant interviews As is evident from Table 46, half of respondents nominated a friend as the usual source person, followed by a known dealer (18%), a street dealer (17%) and acquaintances (15%). Consistent with this result, a friends home was the most commonly cited source venue (39%). 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 % c o m m e n te d Dont know Very easy Easy Difficult Very difficult 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 Dont know More difficult Stable Easier Fluctuates % c o m m e n te d
