Hi! You might find what you're looking for in the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA): http://www.emcdda.europa.eu/stats13 This article may also be interesting for you: http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/2012/nov/15/drug-use-europe-most-popular-prevalent Good luck with your studies!

I could examine where you can find drugs data specifically for the Netherlands if you want to. I know some people working at the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice working on the so-called 'drugs monitor'. Just let me know if you are interested!
