Auge mundial de oferta y demanda de cocaína

June 26, 2023 - La demanda y oferta de cocaína están en auge en todo el mundo y el tráfico de metanfetaminas se está expandiendo más allá de los mercados establecidos, según un informe de la ONU.

Coca bush cultivation and total cocaine production were at record highs in 2021, the most recent year for which data is available, and the global number of cocaine users, estimated at 22 million that same year, is growing steadily, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime said in its annual World Drug Report.

Cocaine seizures have, however, grown faster than production, containing the total supply to some extent, the report said.

While almost 90% of methamphetamine seized worldwide was in two regions – East and Southeast Asia and North America – seizure data suggests those markets have stabilised at a high level yet trafficking has increased elsewhere, such as the Middle East and West Africa, the report said.
