Figure 26: Participant reports of current cannabis availability, 2002-2011 Source: IDRS participant interviews Note: A distinction between hydro and bush cannabis was introduced in 2004. Prior to this time, survey items referred to any form of cannabis As is evident from Table 38, cannabis was purchased mainly from friends (64% for hydro, 83% for bush) and source venue was mainly a friends home (53% for hydro and 67% for bush). 0 20 40 60 80 100 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 % p ar ti ci p an ts Very easy-Cannabis Very easy-Hydro Very easy-Bush
