Ontario Cold to Pot at LCBO, Poll Shows

Article by Shawn Jeffords, Toronto Sun

Selling pot at the liquor store isn’t sparking up overwhelming public support, according to stats released in a new poll.

The Forum Research survey provided exclusively to the Toronto Sun found that more than a third of Ontarians (36%) think pharmacies are the best place to sell recreational pot, not the LCBO as Premier Kathleen Wynne has suggested. The survey says that specialized marijuana dispensaries rank second with 26% support while selling pot at the LCBO ranked lower with 16% support.

“We have polled this issue nationally as well as provincially here in Ontario, and the answers are essentially the same; dispensaries and pharmacies are favoured as the best places to sell marijuana once it is legal, and the LCBO is not seen to be a favoured location,” said Forum Research president Lorne Bozinoff.

Even fewer people like the current model for access to medicinal marijuana, with just 6% of respondents saying they support the product being sent through the mail from a licensed producer.

When asked if they thought it was at all appropriate to sell weed the same place where Ontarions buy wine, liquor and beer, half the respondents (56%) said no. About a third (36%) think it’s OK.
