Illegal drug market is booming, says UN watchdog

About 250 million people [3.33% of world population] used [illegal] drugs in 2015, the report says. Of them [using], 29.5 million [only 12%] had a drug use disorder, including addiction. (these statistics based of world population of 7.5 billion)

“Despite decades of global prohibition and tens of billions of dollars invested annually in anti-trafficking measures, governments have consistently failed in their attempts to eradicate or even suppress the market. “This report shows that the current global framework for tackling drugs has failed and that new approaches, such as decriminalisation of possession offences and regulation of the market, must be pursued.”
