Homeless consuming crack. Brazil represents 20% of global consumption of drugs

Brazil is the world's largest market and the second largest of crack cocaine as a result of research of the National Institute for Public Policy Research on Alcohol and Other Drugs (Inpad), Federal University of São Paulo (Unifesp). Data from the study - which heard 4600 people over 14 years in 149 municipalities of the country - were presented today (05) in the state capital.

The results of the study, which is named National Survey on Alcohol and Drugs (Lenad) also reveal that Brazil represents 20% of global consumption of crack. The smoked cocaine (crack and oxy) has been used at least once by 2.6 million Brazilians, representing 1.4% of adults. Adolescents who have experienced this type of drug were 150 thousand, equivalent to 1%.

According to the report, about 4% of Brazilian adults, 6 million people have tried cocaine at least once in life. Among adolescents, young people aged 14 to 18 years, 44 000 admitted having used cocaine, equivalent to 3% of that audience. In 2011, 2.6 million adults and 244,000 adolescents used cocaine.

The survey also revealed that the Inpad used cocaine intranasally (sniff) is the most common. Approximately 5.6 million people already experienced in life and in the last year alone, 2.3 million had used. Among adolescents, the use is lower, experienced during the 316 000 and 226 000 lives used in the last year.

The research also compared the use of cocaine in the Brazilian regions in 2011. Southeast is concentrated in the largest number of users, 46% of them. In the Northeast are 27%, 10% in the North, Midwest and South 10% 7%. Relatórios com resultado e metodologia estão na página do Inpad na internet.
