Notes:

 Those that declared having used cannabis in 20 days or more in the 30 days previous to the interview are referred to as 'daily or almost daily users' in the texts. 

 For methods and definitions on population surveys in general, see methods and definitions - prevalence and patterns of drug use in the general population. 

 (1) The 2000 survey was used, instead of the more recent 2002 survey, as the latter did not have information on 'last month prevalence'.  

 (2) Further information on frequency of use in last 30 days was collected but not reported due to low numbers of users.
