Prevalence and correlates of non-medical only compared to self-defined medical and non-medical cannabis use, Canada, 2015

Articles and reports: 82-003-X201800700001


This analysis examines the prevalence of, and the factors associated with people who reported using cannabis exclusively non-medically, and compares these results with those for people who reported some medical use in combination with non-medical use. This includes the use of other illicit drugs and the non-therapeutic use of at least one of three classes of psychoactive pharmaceuticals, in addition to the frequency of cannabis use (any purpose) in the past three months, as well as cannabis-related interference/harms, by the household population aged 15 and older in 2015. The data are from the cross-sectional 2015 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CTADS).
