Statistics Canada conducted research to help policymakers better understand the situation with the social and economic side.
According to the study, 82% of Canadians said that “it is unlikely that I will try cannabis or increase their consumption after legalization”. Of those who use marijuana, 28% said that, quite possibly, will increase the volume of consumption.
According to statistics, 4.6 million Canadians or 16% of the total population in the first half of the year had used cannabis. We also know that men do this more often than women. In addition, the male population prefers dried flowers and leaves, while female – edible products.

A quarter of users said that in the period from may to June, it bought for $100, and 21% at a price of $250 and 21% – more than $250. The others who tried only once or twice, didn’t pay anything.
