Statistics Canada Is Crowdsourcing Data On Cannabis Prices

Statistics Canada wants to know about your stash.

As Canada prepares to legalize cannabis, the government agency is asking Canadians to submit information on how much they spend on bud.

All you have to do is visit this website and fill in the details. Submissions are anonymous and data is protected.

According to economist Conrad Barber-Dueck, the goal is to gain a clearer picture of Canada’s economy:

"We know that people are buying and consuming cannabis — that production was there, even though it was illegal. So when it does become legal, we don't want there to be a big jump in the GDP, because this isn't really showing economic reality. We want to have a before and after so we have more precision in the way we're measuring GDP."

This is the first time the organization has crowdsourced data. If this initiative is successful, it won’t be the last.

So far, more than 5000 people have submitted their responses.
