For once, Australia’s will not be offended nor disappointed to learn that the country is the most expensive place in the world to buy Cocaine, together with New Zealand.
According to the United Nation‘s World Drug Report, a gram costs $285 USD in Australia and $312 in New Zealand USD.
Unsurprisingly, the cheapest is $2 USD in Panama and many other South and Central American countries – the source of cocaine.
The cost in the USA and Canada are approximately $97 USD a gram.
So clearly, the street price of the drug varies according to the distance from the source of production. For this Australia and New Zealand can feel relieved.
