Rampant drug use exposed

`Almost half of all Australians aged under 25 have used illicit drugs and view their use as acceptable.

Although possession or use of most illicit drugs could result in a jail sentence, research shows more than six million people of all ages were undeterred.

Almost half of them took illicit drugs other than marijuana and 2.5 million in total had used illicit drugs of some kind in the past year. [..]

Australia has one of the highest rates of illegal substance abuse in the world according to University of Queensland alcohol and drug research and education centre director Professor Jake Najman.’

Gee, who woulda thunk it? 🙂
