  • The numbers of children reporting use in the past year of Class A drugs, stimulant drugs and glues, and aerosols or solvents were all down. So too was cannabis use, from 13.4% in 2001 to 9% in 2008, though it is still the most commonly used drug in this age group.

    The proportion of 11- to 15-year-olds drinking has also declined. However, 60% of those who did drink tended to consume more than four units in a single session, and 63% of 15-year-olds who had consumed alcohol in the previous four weeks had got drunk.
