Both European agencies investigated the cocaine and methamphetamine market along the supply chain, from production and trafficking to distribution and use.

Cocaine is the second most consumed drug in the European Union after cannabis, with an estimated retail market value of 10.5 billion euros.
Nearly 3.5 million Europeans aged between 15 and 64 admit to using this drug in the last year, and 14 million have used it at some time in their lives.
