As the provincial government hashes out where marijuana should be sold, a new poll suggests Ontarians are deeply divided.
While Premier Kathleen Wynne has suggested the LCBO may be the best place to sell recreational cannabis, the Forum Research survey indicates otherwise.
More than a third of those polled — 35 per cent — would like marijuana to be sold in pharmacies.
About a quarter — 26 per cent — prefer “dispensaries,” like the more than 100 now operatingillegally in Toronto.
But only 20 per cent believe the government-owned Liquor Control Board of Ontario should be selling weed at its 654 outlets across the province.
