In Finland, heroin was the most expensive out of the 17 countries analyzed, at $297 per gram.

Ireland was fetching the second highest prices at $237 a gram, but in general, other Scandinavian countries also ranked high for price. This included Denmark ($142), Norway ($102) and Sweden ($105).

There are also countries where prices are much lower – among them Portugal ($25), Belgium ($27), the Netherlands ($31) and Greece ($22) – all countries where drugs arrive via sea lanes.

But in continental Europe, prices were also estimated to be shockingly low. One gram cost $55 in Germany in 2021, $36 in France and $49 in Italy.
