Cocaine Abuse Increases

According to a new report, cocaine abuse is spreading in Sweden, and reaching new groups.

The study from the Swedish Council for Information on Alcohol and other Drugs is reported on by the newspaper “Svenska Dagbladet”. According to the report, the Stockholm police have confiscated nearly three times as much cocaine during the first quarter this year, as during the same period last year.

The police say one explanation may be low prices making what has been a luxury drug more affordable to young adults.
