Whisky galore, 21st century style

Something has happened on the Islands of the Blessed (for once):

"Two Spanish men appeared in the Falkland Islands court on Monday morning in connection with Thursday’s seizure of one million pounds worth of cocaine from the fishing vessel ‘Venturer’, reported the Islands radio station. Both men, from Galicia in Spain, were charged with the importation of 30.6 kilograms of cocaine".

Ignoring the fact that the Spaniards were not in fact intent on cornering the Falklands market for all eternity, I think a little light number crunching is in order:

Best estimates suggest five lines per gramme of cocaine. Let us say that the five lines are split between two people of an evening. One kilo would last two enthusiastic users not much short of three years, or if they wanted to keep the entire stash to themselves, 82.6 years. If they were friendly sorts, they might offer up the package to the entire adult population, which for easy maths I will take as being 2/3rds of the total of 3060. I make that 15 grams each.
