Patterns and Trends

About one in eight residents of Perth and Huron report the use of any illicit drug in the year. The same proportion of residents report the use of cannabis in that year. Most illicit drug users are using cannabis. The law has just changed in Canada in 2018 making the possession and use of cannabis no longer illegal. Its use might increase as a result.
