The Top 50 Cannabis Consuming Countries of the World

world-cannabis-consumption2

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.

      Look how big and population USA have though….americans not no big ganja mon…small lul heads,, just alot of you.

      • weedblog_eu

        I believe it’s calculated as a percentage of population, so having the largest population for example wont mean you have the most cannabis users necessarily.

    Credit where credit is due :) Good work.

    Some like to point at countries like Japan and claim that prohibition works because they have such a low rate of cannabis consumption but what they have instead is a massive rate of amphetamine consumption. Speed is used to work and nations with a strong work ethic use speed in large proprtions.

  • weedblog_eu

    Yes if anything these figures show that prohibition is about as effective as a chocolate teapot. A new approach is needed.

    for a country of 60k +/- BERMUDA’s ranking is very impressive

    All drugs are discriminalized, we can find weed or hash everywhere, a lot of the population smokes, i dont get it why we dont fit on the list! xD

  • Juergen Meixner

    Just a question of time, sooner or later we all will need this natural medicine, cause the cancer does not distinguish.

  • http://mypotlog.com/ Juiced Cannabis

    It is good to see Canada near the top of the list! I would like to see a chart of which countries are prescribing the most smoked cannabis, oil concentrates and especially interested in learning all I can about raw juiced cannabis for medical use.

    If I saved your life I would be called a “Hero”. Marijuana is saving untold lives everyday. Some are little children that are given a chance to live a life pharmaceutical Companies could never offer. What does it take to open peoples eye’s to the lie’s ?
