Instead of drugs: the Icelandic recipeWhile in 1998, 42 percent of Icelandic teenagers aged fifteen to sixteen said they had fled in the past month, whereas in 2016, only 5 percent said the same. In cannabis in '98, they used 17 percent, today they used 7 percent. There is also a significant change in the area of smoking: 23 years ago, 23 percent of them smoked daily, today 3 percent do so.
