America Does Far More Cocaine Than Any Other Nation
World

Atlantic Media business publication Quartz has a post about the boom in Brazilian cocaine use, as the South American country now intakes 18 percent of the world’s cocaine supply.

1 and a half percent of Americans use the nose candy, with an average intake of 42 grams per year.
