Because a country with about the population of Tacloban City (300,000) knows the challenges of running a country with 110 million people LOLs.
Even Quezon City has 2 million people. And the leaders of Iceland have the temerity to question how we run this country.
ICELAND for its very small size has a very big drug problem.
1. From Jan to June 2018, 29 recorded deaths in Iceland were likely to be related to drug overdoses. This is a heavy increase compared to last year’s numbers, when 32 people died due to illicit substance consumption over the entire year. Ólafur B. Einarsson from the Directorate Of Health believes there is a potential drug crisis developing in the country.
2. Compared to other Nordic countries, Iceland has a 30% higher consumption rate of nervous system medication like oxycodone.
3. There is another more dangerous trend present, though. “This year, we discovered that more young people consumed a mix of strong opioid analgesics and cannabis or alcohol,” Ólafur says. Opioids are incredibly addictive and easy to overdose on. In Iceland, they are consumed in pill form and also smoked from Fentanyl patches, which is considered to be many times more potent than heroin.
4. Ólafur points out that there is also an unusually high number of people who consume antidepressants in Iceland. The country has the highest antidepressant consumption rate of any OECD nation.
