This is the finding of the world’s biggest annual drug survey, which had more than 115,000 participants from 50 countries, including 5,700 respondents from Australia.
The global drug Survey, conducted by an independent research company in London, provides the largest in-depth examination at how drug habits vary between regions.
Locally, more than 75 per cent of Aussies admitted to using illicit drugs at one point in their life, while 30 per cent confessed to indulging in illegal substances a month before the survey.
While not the global leaders in cannibas use overall, we are just below the global average in terms of people who enjoy a wake and bake, with 9 per cent of people admitting to smoking a joint between five minutes to an hour after waking up.
While our neighbours in NZ prefer smoking straight weed, 45 per cent of Aussies said they prefer to spin their weed with tobacco.
