People really love taking cocaine in Barcelona.

The Spanish city is the European capital for the drug, according to a new study.

Here is Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Kelda Roys who released a political campaign video of herself breastfeeding her baby, which quickly went viral.

The EU Drugs Agency report used data from analysing wastewater near treatment plants for seven days, in 2017.

Researchers were looking for evidence of four drugs – cocaine, MDMA (ecstasy), amphetamine and methamphetamine (crystal meth) – in 56 European cities.

They found people in Barcelona took an average of 965.2mg of the drug per 1000 residents each day.

This was the highest since they started keeping records seven years ago, although people in Zurich beat this on the weekend.

Switzerland also had another four cities in the top ten, including Geneva and Basel, so it seems they really enjoy a bit of coke there.

The only English city in the top ten came in fifth and it wasn’t London.

People in Bristol took an average of 754.7mg of coke per 1000 residents each day.

Other cities that made up the most popular destinations to use the drug, included Amsterdam and Dortmund.

Netherlands apparently preferred MDMA though, with the country having three out of the top ten popular cities for the drug.
