Narkotikasituationen i världen under 2020 har påverkats av pandemin något enormt. Narkotikaförsäljningen via Darknet har fyrfaldigats mellan 2017 och 2020. Nedan kommer en kort sammanfattning av rapporten på engelska och en länk till den.
Between 2010-2019 the number of people using drugs increased by 22 per cent, owing in part to global population growth. Based on demographic changes alone, current projections suggest an 11 per cent rise in the number of people who use drugs globally by 2030 -- and a marked increase of 40 per cent in Africa, due to its rapidly growing and young population.
Around 275 million people used drugs worldwide in the last year, while over 36 million people suffered from drug use disorders, according to the 2021 World Drug Report, released today by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
The Report further noted that in the last 24 years cannabis potency had increased by as much as four times in parts of the world.
