This bulletin provides a comprehensive overview of many different aspects of cannabis use in Ireland and Northern Ireland. It presents data relating to cannabis use on a lifetime (ever used), last year (recent use) and last month (current use) basis and compares these results with 2002/3 data. The bulletin also examines age of first use, regular use, types of cannabis used, method by which cannabis is used, how and where cannabis is obtained, reasons for stopping use, attitudes towards cannabis use, perceptions of risk and the profile of typical cannabis users.

The survey was carried out by Ipsos MORI in Ireland and by the Central Survey Unit of the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency in Northern Ireland according to standards set by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA).
