Drug use in Bulgaria is gradually increasing, according to data from the annual statistics of the National Focal Point on Drugs and Drug Addictions.

The quantities of confiscated heroin have drastically declined in recent years, however cocaine use among Bulgarians is on the rise, the survey shows.

Four out of ten polled claimed they can easily come into possession of cannabis, Darik news reports.

In terms of alcohol use countrywide, citizens of Sofia, Pernik and Pleven are the most frequent users, followed by the towns of Gabrovo and Shumen.

The street dope in Bulgaria is crap. If you want to get loaded you need to go with rakia or pharmaceuticals like most people do.
