When it comes to smoking weed, all other countries pale in comparison to Iceland. The country is home to the world’s largest per capita population of cannabis users, according to the 2014 World Drug Report.

Fifty-five thousand members of the population of Iceland—about 320,000—puff. That’s a stunning 18.3%.
