Recreational Drug Use Surges Worldwide, UN Study Reports
Some 271 million people globally, or more than one in 20 of the population aged 15 to 64, used recreational drugs in 2017, according to newly released data from the United Nations World Drug Report. That’s a 30% increase from 2009.

The use of cannabis, cocaine, amphetamines and prescription stimulants are at post-recession highs in the U.S., the study said. And although the use of prescription opioids has dipped recently, the number of overdoses has increased. More than 47,000 deaths were recorded there in 2017, many of them attributed to synthetic opioids such as fentanyl.

The most popular drug globally continues to be cannabis, with an estimated 188 million people having used it in 2017, according to the study. Cannabis usage is most prevalent in North America, where there are an estimated 56.6 million users, followed by Asia with 54.2 million. ...

Did anyone ever refer to recreational alcohol use?
No, because booze is *always* recreational today, hardly ever therapeutic such as 1 Tim. 5:23, hence the "wink-wink nudge-nudge" you hear in conversation about it compared to soft drinks.

The London Evening Standard, the main free weekday Monday -Friday) newspaper in London, (which also does national and international news), and is very pro-EU and anti-Brexit, also pro-LGBT, is featuring special articles at the moment on recreational marijuana / cannabis and the desire to see it legalised in Britain.

Medical marijuana is now legal in Britain, after the nominally Muslim Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, overruled the PM Mrs Teresa May, after a court case in the British Supreme Court, in favour of the mother of an autistic boy, whose supplies of medical marijuana for her son had been confiscated at the airport.

Already US entrepreneurs and multi million businessmen of the cannabis industry have already had a top level meeting in London, to see how they could promote a future legalised fully licenced recreational marijuana industry, and are very confident, with support from many politicians and police chiefs, that they will see the law changed. ‚ÄúPharmakia‚ÄĚ or sorcery as it is translated in the AV / KJV is certainly big in these last days!!!

He wasn't facing gangsters and thugs, however, but the supposedly Christian British whose leaders imagined themselves civilized. All for a trade deficit.

Let’s stop calling it recreational drug use and call it what it really is: part-time amateur sorcery.
