How High? The cost of recreational drugs
The United States is the main consumer of recreational drugs in the world. The impact it has is not only economic but for the rest of the world, as producers, it is also has a violent impact in the terms of the crimes committed by drug cartels and organized crime.
This project wanted to create a middle point between a static narrative infographic and an interactive exploratory visualization, where the user would be given clues and relevant insights regarding the impact of the consumption in the US and the violence and crimes that it takes to supply such high demand.
