Please note: The proportion of school students who used cannabis at different locations differs from the proportion of youth in the general population who used cannabis at different locations due to differences in survey measures (see FAQ: Where do Australians in the general population aged 12-17 years usually use cannabis?). In the Australian Secondary School Students’ Alcohol and Drug (ASSAD) survey, respondents could only select one of four different methods of use and data presented concerns only those who regularly use and the two most common forms of use. In the general population survey (National Drug Strategy Household Survey), respondents could select more than one of the five methods of use and data presented concerns those who have used at least once in the past 12 months.
