United Nations Office on drugs and Crimes (UNODC) World Drug Report (2008)

  1. Alfa
    The World Drug Report presents comprehensive information on production, trafficking and consumption of opium/heroin, coca/cocaine, cannabis and amphetamine-type stimulants. An extremely interesting read, which is the basis for worldwide drug policy.

    It clearly shows how the countries with more restrictive drug policies have the highest drug use prevalences, while liberal countries like the Netherlands have much lower drug use prevalence.

    Also interesting to see, is the flow of drugs across the world.
