ABC2 presents a week of programming on the topic of drugs from July 26th

Illicit drugs, their consequences, costs and current use in Australia will be analysed and discussed and stories from experiences overseas and from those involved with illicit drug use and their consequences are available. A live show, produced in association with triple j's Hack and hosted by Tom Tilley, Australians on Drugs will air on Tuesday night, with the aim of encouraging a national conversation about drug use today.

The National Drug Strategy Household Survey ( 2013) estimated that about 8 million people aged 14 and over in Australia ( 42%) have ever used an illicit drug and 2.9 million (15%) had used an illicit drug in the twelve months before the survey, increasing from 2.7 million (14%) in 2010.
