Globally, cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug with over 188 million people estimated to have used it in 2017. Recreational use of plant-derived cannabis has been associated with an elevated risk of premature mortality, including accidental injury, natural disease and suicide.

This presentation (51 minutes), from the 2020 NDARC Webinar Series on Thursday, 30 July 2020, explores the findings of the first national level study that investigated 559 cannabis-related deaths through the National Coronial Information System. The study investigates the rates, characteristics and manner of cannabis-related deaths recorded in Australia (2000-2018).
