Figure EYE-1. Cannabis prevalence rates [see all figures in this series...]

Part (v) Lifetime prevalence of cannabis use and perceived great risk among 15/16 year olds school students (%), 2007


Spain did not participate in the ESPAD survey. The data included here is based on a Spanish survey conducted in 2006/2007. Drug prevalence questions may be considered comparable to the ESPAD questions but other aspects of the method mean that the Spanish data is not strictly comparable. Belgium data is based on Flanders only. German data is based on seven regions only (Bavaria, Brandenburg, Berlin, Hesse, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saarland and Thuringia). Turkey figures are based on one major city in each of 6 different regions (Adana, Ankara, Diyarbakir, Istanbul, Izmir and Samsun). ESPAD 2007 data for Denmark limited comparability.

Perceived great risk is defined as those answering that they think there is a great risk of people harming themselves (physically or in other ways if they: a) try marijuana or hashish once or twice b) smoke marijuana or hashish regularly
