While it’s legal, the idea of chatting about smoking up at the holiday table turns out to be a bit of a bummer, a study has found.
P.E.I.-based cannabis brand FIGR commissioned a national survey to learn how open Canadians will be about talking about toking at the dinner table during holidays — and it turns out, not very.
Only 39% of cannabis users were comfortable discussing their weed consumption with their parents, and only 14% would get into some ganja talk with their grandparents (14%).
“The stigma remains,” said Marta Clark, FIGR’s marketing director. “I think when you’re in a safe space with your friends, a partner, people are more likely to be open. But there definitely needs to be that element of trust.”
