Someone did sent me the next, I don't know where it came from,

The Netherlands, with its permissive marijuana laws, may be known as the 
cannabis capital of the world. But a survey 
published this month in /PLoS Medicine,/ a journal of the Public Library 
of Science, suggests that the Dutch don't actually experiment with pot 
as much as one would expect. Despite tougher drug policies in this 
country, Americans were twice as likely to have tried marijuana than the 
Dutch, according to the survey. In fact, Americans were more likely to 
have tried marijuana or cocaine than people in any of the 16 other 
countries, including France, Spain, South Africa, Mexico and Colombia, 
that the survey covered.

Researchers found that 42% of people surveyed in the United States had 
tried marijuana at least once, and 16% had tried cocaine. About 20% of 
residents surveyed in the Netherlands, by contrast, reported having 
tried pot; in Asian countries, such as Japan and China, marijuana use 
was virtually "non-existent," the study found. New Zealand was the only 
other country to claim roughly the same percentage of pot smokers as the 
U.S., but no other nation came close to the proportion of Americans who 
reported trying cocaine.

Om Shanti, Jai Mataji, Jai Gangama.
