Massive increase in Brits abroad drug arrests

DRUG arrests of Britons in Spain have soared, with an incredible 68% increase on the previous year.

In total, 708 Brits have been arrested overseas on drug charges already this year – a shocking 173 of which were in Spain, according to the UK’s Foreign Office.

A worrying trend is the reported rise in the use of a party drug named ‘Cannibal’ – due to its tendency to dramatically increase aggressiveness.

It is apparently being distributed widely in parts of Spain, including the Balearics.

A British man was arrested in Magaluf, after biting beachgoers while high on the drug.

The rapid rise in drug-related arrests is due to a serious crackdown on dealers launched by police this year.

The second-largest number of drug arrests involving Britons last year was in America, with 102 cases.


  1. Luc: First, how do YOU know this? Second whose body is it anyway? Third, this piece is about “drugs” in general, (not the worst one of all, alcohol of course) and not just this silly headline-grabber.
