Women, Non-Smokers, Millennials Interested in Marijuana Edibles

About a third of Canadians in a recent poll (34 per cent) say they will at least try smoking marijuana after it becomes legal next summer, as opposed to 12 per cent who smoke pot recreationally now, according to an Ipsos poll conducted on behalf of Global News.

The data implies that about 3.4-million Canadian adults use pot recreationally now, and about 9.6 million will after legalization, at least occasionally.
