Hong Kong consumes very large amounts of Ketamine, MDMA and Cocaine. Admittedly, not so much meth or crack.

From what I can see online, there are only around 8000 reported drug users out of a population of 7 million or 0.1 %. https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyt.2018.0045...

The actual number is probably higher, but doesn't compare to the USA with 24 million drug abusers out of a population of 331 million or 7.25%. https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/nationwide-...

Where are you getting your information from that it is a problem in Hong Kong?
