Three said that 100mg MS Contin tablets sold for $80 and three said that these tablets sold for between $80-$100. Some KE reported stable and easy availability of illicit morphine, most commonly in the form of MS Contin. One Health KE stated that availability had varied over the past 12 months, from relatively easy to difficult, with several droughts lasting up to four days. A Health KE suggested that there had been a slight increase in illicit morphine availability and linked this to people being able to doctor shop.
