Most Canadians Think Cannabis Should Be Sold By Growers, Private Retailers: Poll

The majority of Canadians believe that licensed cannabis growers should be able to open their own stores to sell their harvest, according to a new survey.

Oracle Poll surveyed 5,000 Canadians and found that 65 percent would support retail cannabis outlets owned by licensed growers.

This comes in light of news that the governments of both Ontario and New Brunswick will open provincial-run cannabis outlets following nationwide legalization next July. Small businesses have criticized the Ontario government’s plan, saying it won’t squash the black market.

In the same survey by Oracle, 57 percent of respondents agreed with the Canadian government’s move to legalize cannabis.

The poll also revealed that 26 percent of respondents were current cannabis consumers, while 36 percent intended to try cannabis once it’s legal. That could mean a cannabis market of more than 11.4 million Canadians.

The Oracle poll was conducted between July 7 and Aug. 4 of this year, and has a margin of error of +/1.4 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
