Statistics Canada says its latest survey shows more people are using cannabis since the legalization of recreational pot last fall and Canadians are increasingly buying it from legal retailers.
Figures from its National Cannabis Survey released today show that 5.3 million or 18 per cent of Canadians aged 15 years and older said they used pot within the last three months.
That’s up from 14 per cent who reported using cannabis a year earlier, before legalization in October 2018.
The quarterly survey also showed that initial data from the first three months of 2019 indicate that Canadians are changing their cannabis purchasing habits.
