Filling out the survey

Here are some examples to guide you in answering the survey questions. The questionnaire is designed for both people that have purchased and used drugs. If purchased, the prices and amounts entered can be either the standard amount of 1 unit (if multiple units come in your purchase), or the amount included in the purchase as a whole. If only consumed and not purchased, you can say you've used a substance by filling in the number of times field and answering the rest of the questions to the best of your knowledge.

For illustration, we will say the substances are being used in Miami-Dade county:
