Students in Monaco reported markedly higher prevalence rates on four out of the eight ESPAD key variables. The most striking difference was noted for lifetime use of cannabis, which was reported by almost twice the proportion of Monegasque students compared to the ESPAD average (31 % versus 16 %). Other measures above the ESPAD average were cigarette use in the last 30 days (26 %) and lifetime use of tranquillisers or sedatives without prescription (10 %). Lifetime use of illicit drugs other than cannabis, lifetime use of inhalants and lifetime use of NPS were more or less on the same level as the ESPAD average. Only one measure indicated substance use clearly below the overall average, and that was heavy episodic drinking in the last 30 days (27 % versus 35 %). To sum up, students in Monaco generally tended to report levels similar to or higher than the overall average. Hence, the conclusion is that Monaco, in the ESPAD context, is a medium- to high-prevalence country when it comes to substance use among students.
