UN: The largest number of drug addicts - in the US

46
The UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs provided data on which country has the largest number of citizens susceptible to drug addiction. It turned out that the largest number of drug addicts is in the United States of America. This is 28,6 million only identified drug-addicted citizens aged 12.


It was noted that the average age of drug addicts in the United States decreases more intensively than in other countries of the world. This suggests that the death rate from taking drugs at a relatively young age.

From the published statistics: nearly 200 thousands of people die every year from drug overdose in the USA. The largest number is under the age of 23.

UN: The largest number of drug addicts - in the US


Also in the UN note that the greatest number of deaths in this case is associated with the use of the so-called opioids. The longstanding US military presence in Afghanistan is bearing fruit.

In Russia, the number of citizens who use drugs is about 4 million people. It was noted that in the Russian Federation for the first time in five years a decrease in the number of drug addicts among adolescents was noted. And the decline is very impressive - about 24,6%. This led to a decrease in "drug" juvenile crime following the results of 2017 of the year - by about 16%.

            It is necessary to submit not in the number of people, but as a percentage of the population.
            In Russia, 2,7% of drug addicts, in the US 8,7% of the population. That is, every eleventh.
            Here in this I can only wish the CIA further success.

                The largest heroin supplier in the world is the CIA. It is through the channels of the CIA that drugs are mainly delivered to the United States. Moreover, this is not even particularly hidden.

          And that just might be true. Imagine yourself a schoolboy who regularly has to take a test for nareotics in his urine. Will it be too dark? In addition, normal sections and circles appeared, as an alternative to blunt legs on the alleyways, plus measures to limit smoking and alcohol circulation, as provoking factors, plus parents allocate less pocket money due to economic difficulties in the country. As a result, it scrapes into such a decline.

            You first decide whether there are sections with circles or there is no money. And then, where are these sections and circles, in megacities? In small provincial cities, of course, there are also a couple of pieces, but not all children want to go in the available directions. There is no wide choice. And I am silent about villages and villages.
            If you pick up a calculator (who can’t count in your mind), after 5 years all addiction among teenagers will be taken away, based on the Ministry of Health’s comments. negative And yet, of. statistics, a very crafty thing. hi

          Directly will not work. Moreover, this will provide an opportunity for some of the authorities to correct the statistics by throwing small doses to those who can not afford excuses.
          In addition, the practice of confiscating property is strongly recommended. With a mandatory investigation of the origin of property recorded on relatives.
          This is useful not only in punishment under the article on the distribution of drugs, but also in others. Especially corruption

          Demonstrative executions are constantly carried out in China. But as the Chinese authorities came to the conclusion, the number of drug addicts is not falling below a certain limit. And that is typical, and distributors, too, despite the threat of the death penalty. Although, frankly, I hold the position of taking life for the spread of this shit.

        According to official police data, and these are those who at least once caught red-handed, about 8 million, and almost 700 thousand officially applied for treatment. In fact, this is not a disaster for a single country, but a global problem. Although if you look at more extended statistics, according to some indicators, not everything is as bad as the rest. For example, the number of strong antidepressants and other drugs containing drugs is 3 times less than in the same mericosia

    Firstly, it is a question of who to call a drug addict. In some states, for example, grass is legalized - what about those who smoke?
    Secondly, if you remove from the statistics blacks oh, sorry for the political incorrectness, of African Americans (exactly like that, with a capital letter, in accordance with the latest rules of political correctness), which make up about 12% of the country's population, as well as illegal immigrants (mainly mexes), the numbers will change a lot, and so it it turns out like the average temperature in the hospital - if you add a typhoid hut with a morgue, then the average temperature is close to normal.

And it was all natural, and right now on the Internet in any city (even small ones) I paid for it in two clicks and took the bookmark almost instantly, and they sell spice, salt is already synthetic. If in my time at school some people smoked weed, they all knew now, now (even for more than 10 years, my native school was not like that) I will immediately call 10 spice and 10 salt addicts. 3 friends in the grave.
