This is a list of the annual prevalence of cannabis use by country (including some territories) as a percentage of the population aged 15–64 (unless otherwise indicated). The indicator is an "annual prevalence" rate which is the percentage of the youth and adult population who have consumed cannabis at least once in the past survey year.
