The Top 50 Cannabis Smoking Countries

The United Nations have released more data, including this very interesting info on world cannabis consumption.

This chart shows the top 50 ranking countries and I am sure is a surprise to some in Iceland.

Note that Scotland beats England and Wales!

And check the USA – nearly at the top of the pile with their ineffective drug war.

I would have expected Italy to be a bit higher than their 4% (they don’t even make this chart!)

The bottom 10 countries were Vietnam, Turkey, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Romania, Japan, El Salvador, Indonesia, Algeria and the Republic of Korea.

UPDATE 4th July 2014

Apparently the Icelandic data may be based on a misunderstanding.

Congratulations then must go to Nigeria – where apparently 22% of the population like to smoke weed!
