Cocaine use goes down in Spain

SPAIN (El País) Cocaine use in Spain has fallen over the last year among people between the ages of 15 and 34, the Lisbon-based European Monitor Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction said Tuesday. In a report, the EMCDDA said that Spain has joined the list of countries - including Denmark, Italy and the United Kingdom, which had been four of the five nations in the past with highest levels of use - now reporting a decline. "The financial burden associated with regular cocaine use may make it a less attractive option in countries where austerity is now the order of the day," says the Annual Report 2011: The State of the Drugs Problem in Europe.
