Hey, what do you know, we’re the winners! Oh wait, that’s probably not something to celebrate, is it? We topped out in three of the four categories. Though we have strict laws that might make you think otherwise, Americans love their drugs. Nearly half of those surveys admitted smoking cannabis. One factor, according to the WHO, is that wealthier countries are more likely to do these drugs.
Meanwhile, the percentage of people who confessed to using cocaine was four times the amount of those in New Zealand, the second most. In fact, cocaine is so prevalent in the United States that you are even likely to find traces
of it on your money. We’re not kidding. The only category we did not win was alcohol consumption. I think Utah
brought us down.
Percent who drink alcohol: 91.6
Percent who smoke tobacco: 73.6
Percent who smoke cannabis: 42.4
Percent who use cocaine: 16.2
