National Advisory Committee on Drugs and Alcohol

The NACDA was established in response to the drug problem to assist in our continued need to improve our knowledge and understanding of problem drug use.

The goal of the NACDA is to advise the Government on problem drug use in Ireland in relation to prevalence, prevention consequences and treatment based on our analysis and interpretation of research findings.

Executive Summary

 

Previously published findings in Drug Use in Ireland and Northern Ireland: First Results (Revised) from the 2002/2003 Drug Prevalence Survey (Bulletin 1) showed that cannabis was the most commonly used illegal drug in both Ireland and Northern Ireland across all time periods, lifetime (ever used), last year (recent use) and last month (current use).

This bulletin contains results relating to cannabis prevalence on a lifetime (ever used), last year (recent use), and last month (current use) in Ireland and Northern Ireland. It also examines age of first use; regular use; type of cannabis used; method by which cannabis is used; how and where cannabis is obtained; reasons for stopping use; attitudes to cannabis and perceptions of risk, together with the most common characteristics of typical cannabis users.
