Prevalence

Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, with men more likely to use cannabis than women [39231][33725][34600].

Key surveys containing information on prevalence of cannabis use are: the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS), the National Drug Strategy Household Survey (NDSHS) and the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (AATSIHS) which can be found under publications in this section.
