Users of Cocaine in Australia Have Above Average Incomes

A survey of drug users in Australia found that 60 percent of cocaine users in the country had above-average income, with 25 percent earning over $103,000 (100,000 Australian).

The price of cocaine in Australia was reported to be $310 (300 AUS), with “luxury” cocaine being sold for $415 to $466 (400 to 450 AUS). The luxury cocaine is sold with the promise of having a higher quality, and most of the users who purchased the more expensive cocaine stated that it was worth it.
