As highlighted by the latest edition of the European Drug ReportEstonia is the country with the most drug-induced deaths per million population in Europe.

At 103 - 82 above the EU average - only Sweden comes close with 100 deaths. However, at the other end of the scale, as Statista's Martin Armstrong points outPortugal, where drugs were decriminalised back in 2001, had only 6 per million people.

Looking outside of Europe, Estonia's problems are pulled into sharp relief by the rate in the United States. In 2016, there were a staggering 185 deaths per million.
