The other day we put together maps of illegal drug use from the U.N.’s World Drug Report 2012, and now we are going through the data to get a better idea of which countries use which drugs most.We made the “Top 12” of marijuana users.
Now here’s list of countries with the highest annual prevalence of cocaine use (as a percentage of the population aged 15 to 64):
1) Isle of Man 3.5%
2) Spain 2.7; Scotland*: 2.7%
4) England*; USA; Italy: 2.2%
7) Australia**: 2.1%
8) Monaco 1.9%
9) Ireland; Uruguay; Saint Kitts and Nevis: 1.7%
*aged 16 to 64
These 11 countries are far ahead of the field as the next closest country was Bermuda* (1.3%).
Spain, USA, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Italy and Australia also made the list for countries with the highest prevalence of marijuana users.
