Cocaine Up

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

Bad news. Cocaine production is up in Colombia and so is consumption in the US. “This surge in consumption can be traced directly to Colombia’s bumper harvest. The country’s illegal coca crop doubled between 2013 and 2015, reaching nearly 400,000 acres. That’s almost twice as much as the combined output of Peru and Bolivia, the world’s second- and third-largest producers.”
