The number of Queenslanders who smoke has continued to drop but the number of those who vape has gone up, according to figures from Australia’s peak health data body.

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare has released its latest report into recreational drug use, showing how legal and illicit drugs are being used across the country, as well as people’s attitudes towards them. The analysis of people aged 14 or over found the proportion of daily smokers in Queensland fell by about one-third between 2001 and 2019, from 21 per cent of the population to 13.5 per cent.
