An estimated 15.5 MILLION Europeans have used coke at least once in their life! (We don't count marijuana as a drug because everyone does it and it's harmless and basically becoming legal.)
Aside from snorting up nose candy, a new trend is getting high legally.
Legal highs are drugs that are basically too new to be declared illegal.
They found some crazy stats about legal highs:
"A record 57 new legal highs have been detected so far this year, with the EU's early warning system reporting the appearance of more than one new psychoactive drug on the market every week.
The rise and rise of legal highs is being driven by an explosion in the number of online retailers selling the new drugs in Europe, which has risen from 170 in 2010 to a record 693 internet "head shops" identified in a snapshot earlier this year."
Who the heck is inventing a new drug every single week?
And who's crazy enough to take them??
Don't do drugs, y'all!
