Some Ottawa high school students say they’d welcome franker conversations about marijuana, now that the drug has been legalized.
CBC News recently visited a class of Grade 12 students at Lisgar Collegiate Institute to survey their attitudes on cannabis.
It quickly became clear that students have opinions as diverse as the general population.
In a show of hands, however, LCI students agreed on one thing — legalization has more going for it than against it, from the chance to have access to safer drugs to just being able to finally talk openly about cannabis.
Here’s what they said. Some comments have been edited for length and clarity.
