Alcohol consumption is Brazil’s main issue with regards to substance abuse. Despite the illegal use of drugs such as crack cocaine, 77% of people use alcohol at the same time. The national health survey from Brazil (2013) estimated that 13.7% of people used alcohol 30 days prior to the interview. In 2012 only 0.8% of the population used this substance regularly in the past 6 months, and illegal drugs altogether (except Marijuana) was 2.3% of the population.
