Smokes, drink and drugs hitting harder in the bush than the city: report

A report released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) has shown people in rural and remote NSW are lighting up at twice the rate as their big city counterparts.
It also showed crystal meth or ice to have replaced powder as the most popular form of drug used.
The National Drug Strategy Household Survey reported people living in rural and remote areas in the state were more likely to use methamphetamines, smoke daily or partake in risky drinking behaviour compared to metropolitan areas.

Please see more details of the report at the following link:
