BARCELONA is the cocaine capital of Europe, according to an analysis of wastewater in 56 European cities.
On average Barcelonians get through 965.2mg each day for every 1,000 residents.
This is the highest amount recorded since the project started and it represents a 34% increase on the inaugural result found in Antwerp, Belgium in 2011.
Just one British city made it into the top 10 with Bristol coming in at sixth.
London, which was previously deemed as the capital in 2014 and 2015 did not feature this year.
Zurich in Switzerland came second with 934.4mg daily per 1,000 and following the trend became the second highest figure ever recorded.
This comes after a separate EU drugs report found that more than 13% of Spaniards between the ages of 15 and 34 have tried cocaine at least once in their lifetime.
With the EU average, 6.3% Spain has the highest in Europe.
Spain’s youth are also the most habitual coke snorters in Europe, with 4.4 percent admitting they’ve consumed the drug in the last year and 2 percent in the last month.
In addition to cocaine, Barcelona ranked 7th in Europe for MDMA use.
