INDONESIA Situation Assessment on Amphetamine-Type Stimulants
Indonesia has not traditionally been a major producer of illicit drugs, but has
long been used as a key transit country by transnational organized criminal groups for the trafficking of heroin and cocaine. Large quantities of cannabis continue to be cultivated in Indonesia, much of which is cultivated in Aceh province of Northern Sumatera. Illicit proceeds from the cannabis trade are believed to have played a role as a source of income for armed insurgent groups opposed to the central government from the mid-1970s to the mid-2000s.
