"The Spanish government continued to implement its 2017-2024 national strategy to fight addiction. The strategy prioritizes equal access to treatment for minors, women, and the elderly. Spanish authorities estimate that 9.5 percent of Spaniards consume marijuana and 2 percent consume cocaine.

"Spain continued to enjoy excellent bilateral and multilateral law enforcement cooperation with international partners in 2020. Cooperation on EU operations in the Mediterranean continued, and U.S. law enforcement agencies maintained strong working relationships with Spanish authorities, leading to significant drug seizures and arrests. In October, for example, Spanish, Dutch, and U.S. law enforcement worked collaboratively to make arrests to dismantle a Dutch transnational criminal organization, which was alleged to have shipped 20 MT of cocaine through the United States and 5 MT of cocaine through European ports."
