The results of a survey published by Statistics Canada last week reveal some interesting information about how Canadians are consuming cannabis. According to the data, which was gathered earlier this year as part of the National Cannabis Survey, approximately 4.2 million or 14 percent of Canadians aged 15 and over have used cannabis products in the last three months. Of them, about 56 percent said their use occurred on a daily or weekly basis. (The information comes ahead of the federal government’s implementation of Bill C-45, an act that will legalize, regulate, and restrict access to non-medical cannabis.) While senators currently discussing the bill in committee fear legalization will normalize cannabis use and lead to an increase in the number of users, 79 percent of respondents told Statistics Canada that, regardless of whether or not they were already consumers, legalization wouldn’t make them more likely to try cannabis or increase their consumption.
