72 As has been the case since 1997/98, there were no cocaine-related admissions to NT hospitals in 2008/09 (Figure 46). National rates remained relatively stable between 2006/07 and 2008/09. Figure 46: Cocaine-related admissions to NT hospitals by financial year, rate per million persons, 1993/94-2008/09 Source: AIHW. The rate of cannabis-related admissions to NT hospitals in 2008/09 was 49.8 per million persons, a slight increase from 44.0 per million persons in 2007/08 (Figure 47). These figures also reverse the downward trend that commenced in 2006/07. The NT series shows a gradual increase between 1994/94 and 2008/09, to some degree mirroring changes in the national rate over time.
