We investigate the change in life-time and past year use of cannabis in young Australians aged 14 to 25.
Using the Australian National Drug Strategy Household Survey years 1998 to 2013, we looked at lifetime and past year cannabis use, age of first use, frequency of use, as well as past year alcohol and tobacco use, physical health, and psychological distress.
There was a decrease in both lifetime and past year use of cannabis from 1998 to 2013.
Males and older young adults were more likely to report having used cannabis in the last year.
Those who reported using cannabis in the past year were more likely to report poorer physical and mental health.
