That's weird considering that Netherlands ,alongside with Spain, are the only European nations that cannabis is legal.

Maybe making it illegal encourages people? To test that hypothesis, it will be interesting to see how Colorado's consumption rate changes compared with the rest of the US over the coming years

Also, when it's illegal distributors lace it with more addicting drugs so customers come back for more later. We have a huge problem with that in Canada, but it will be interesting to see how this changes when it becomes legal in 2018.

This quiz is not right. First of all, accept Czechia as an answer. Secondly, how is Netherlands, UK, Turkey, Pakistan, Yemen, Jamaica, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and way more countries not on this list. Thirdly, UAE are so strict on drugs and the laws are well governed. So the UAE one is false. However, other muslim countries like Pakistan and Yemen aren't well governed in some areas and thats why they use cannabis a lot. But cmon man how is Jamaica not on this list, a country famous for its usage.
