Dope on world drug use shows weed's where it's at6/27/2012
Marijuana is still the most popular illicit drug on the planet, with as many as 224 million users worldwide, according to the UN's World Drug Report. A red-eyed 14.1 percent of Americans enjoy a toke, while the Micronesian Republic of Palau boasts the highest number of stoners per capita, with almost one-in-four people blazing one up for their tiny Pacific island nation. Interestingly, in Uruguay, where they've recently decided to all but legalize its use, the rate is far lower -- just 5.6 percent. And while its cultivation is difficult to measure accurately, given the number of small, backyard growers, global production is believed to be on the rise, with the product becoming more potent. So, all in all, the future's looking bright for the world's stoners. If they can bring themselves to open the drapes.
Are you one of the 14.1 percent?
