Hello, thank you for using this service. I wish to introduce myself. I am Michael, a Research Librarian with 20+ years of experience.

Good afternoon,

Interesting question as I have gone ahead to research what has been studied on this topic in Australia. Many reports are available from government sources on the number of people using substances such as these in detail. As for a reason why, most reports seem to believe that those heavy users fall under demographics such as "Indigenous people; people who were unemployed; people identifying as homosexual or bisexual; people with a mental illness; and people living in remote areas."

Other reasons such as easy to obtain as well as age offer higher rates as reported in the link below:
