UNODC WORLD DRUG REPORT 2022 

On 27 June, the UN Office for Drugs and Crime published its annual World Drugs Report.  It says that cannabis legalisation in parts of the world appears to have accelerated daily use and related health impacts; there has been record rises in the manufacturing of cocaine; there has been an expansion of synthetic drugs to new markets; and that there are continued gaps in the availability of drug treatments, especially for women.  It also highlights that illicit drug economies can flourish in situations of conflict and where the rule of law is weak, and in turn can prolong or fuel conflict.

Nearly 90 % of the cocaine globally seized in 2021 was trafficked in containers and/or by sea.
