US website Bloomberg published the top 50 countries with the most affordable “vicious entertainment.” Analysts compared the cost of alcohol, tobacco, and the most popular types of drugs, as methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine, heroin.
Indulging in a weekly habit of drugs, booze and cigarettes can cost you as little as $41.40 in Laos and a whopping $1,441.50 in Japan, according to the Bloomberg Vice Index.
In terms of absolute costs, the cheapest prices can be found in Congo, Honduras and Laos. On the other end of the scale, Japan is the most expensive with New Zealand and Australia right behind.
Looking at the basket of vices relative to income unveils a few surprises. Under that criteria, high-income nations such as Luxembourg and Switzerland offer the best value.
