Average price of cocaine in the Netherlands 2008-2017

Average price per gram of cocaine in the Netherlands from 2008 to 2017 (in euros)*

by Brigitte van de Pas, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Average price of cocaine in the Netherlands 2008-2017 Between 2008 and 2017, cocaine prices in the Netherlands remained stable at around 50 euros per gram. The price of cocaine peaked in 2012 and again in 2014, at 53 euros, before decreasing again slightly. In 2017, a gram of cocaine in the Netherlands sold for just under 50 euros. This was significantly higher than the price of amphetamine, which on average cost just seven euros per gram that year.
 Cocaine use on the rise

  Cocaine use, although still relatively low compared to other drugs such as cannabis or ecstasy, is on the rise. The Trimbos Institute’s survey on drug use among adults has been running since 1997, and the share of respondents stating to have used cocaine at least once in their lives has never reached above 5.3 percent. Regular users were even more rare: in 2017 just 0.6 percent of all respondents answered to have used cocaine in the last month. Despite that, the share of once-in-their-lives users increased from 2.6 to 5.2 percent between 1997 and 2017. The share of regular users also doubled in this period, from 0.3 to 0.6 percent.

Who are the cocaine users?

Cocaine use in the Netherlands was most common among the 20-29 year olds. The most recent Trimbos survey found that of the 20-24 year olds, 1.8 percent had used cocaine in the past month. Among the 25-29 year olds, this was even higher, at just over two percent. By comparison, fewer of the 18 and 19 year olds and the respondents older than 65 years had experience using the drug in the period.
