Hillier L, DeVisser R, Kavanagh A & McNair R. The association between licit and illicit drug use and sexuality in young Australian women. Medical Journal of Australia, 2003; 179(6): 326-327

To the Editor: Studies of non-representative population samples show that recreational drug use is more prevalent among non-heterosexual women than heterosexual women. The Australian Longitudinal Study of Women’s Health allowed an examination of the links between sexuality and recreational drug use in a representative sample of 9260 women aged 22–27 years in 2000.
