Ontario voters are split over where they think cannabis should be sold when it is legalized later this summer.
CBC’s Vote Compass survey asked respondents whether they thought only government-run stores should be able to sell marijuana.
The results showed that 27 per cent strongly agreed with that statement, while 24 per cent strongly disagreed. A further 18 per cent only somewhat agreed with government-only stores, while 19 per cent somewhat disagreed. Just 12 per cent were neutral on the idea.
The Ontario Liberals plan to open 40 government-run Ontario Cannabis Stores this year, with plans for 150 standalone stores by 2020.
