WASHINGTON– The UN’s annual report on world drug use concludes that global markets for cocaine, opiates and marijuana are holding steady or in decline, regardless of the 28 million heavy drug users likely to be physically or psychologically dependent on drugs. Opium cultivation in Afghanistan dropped by 19 percent last year, and there was a 28 percent decline in cocaine production in Colombia.  Afghanistan cultivates 93 percent of the world’s opium and Columbia produces approximately half of the world’s cocaine, the report states.
