According to statistics by the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime, the nation of Brazil consumes as much as eighteen percent of the world’s total supply of cocaine, second only to the United States of America, which comes in at first place, consuming more than twice as much as Brazilians, at thirty-seven percent.
Although the country of Brazil is known as a developed nation, its economy is growing exponentially, perhaps even due to cocaine sales.
Research reveals that although eighteen percent of Brazilians consume the world’s total supply, only 1.4% of Brazilians admit to using cocaine. Apparently, cocaine use is as taboo in the Brazil as it is in the United States of America.
Ironically, and although consumption of cocaine is illegal in the United States, research shows that Americans consume more than one-third of the world’s total amount of cocaine.
Furthermore, according to the statistics above, on average, each American consumes approximately forty-two grams of cocaine.
Meanwhile, Brazilian counterparts consume thirty-five grams of cocaine on average.
