50 Percent Of Ontarians Want Cannabis Regulated Like Alcohol

October 03, 2017

According to a brand new poll out of Ontario, Canada, 50 percent of folks there want recreational cannabis to be regulated the same way as alcohol…

While the poll was by no means the largest ever conducted, featuring just 801 participants, the results are compelling, and came as a shock to some.

When it comes to cannabis regulation in Ontario there seems to be a lot of confusion. On the one hand there is a prevailing liberal attitude towards cannabis, although on the other side there are some conservative attitudes also there. For example, government in Ontario recently noted that they would limit cannabis sales to 150 stores.

Forum president Lorne Bozinoff told reporters, “It seems the government’s marijuana plan may be on point.” And that seems to be the case.

A third of those polled said they believe that cannabis should be regulated just as tobacco is, while around 18 percent of respondents said they ‘weren’t sure.’

Another issue in Ontario when it comes to cannabis is pricing, after officials there hinted that the price would be set at $10 a gram. Around 27 percent of those polled said they felt the price was reasonable, while 17 percent said it was too pricey. That sets a real challenge for officials, who want to stomp out the cannabis black market as effectively and quickly as possible.

Within those polled were a group of 106 people who said they are “regular cannabis users.” They overwhelmingly felt that  the price of $10 a gram is a good one, and very fair.

It remains to be seen how things will pan out in Ontario. What is sure is that people there are ready for change, and seem interested in working out the best way to provide quality medical cannabis at the right price, for thousands of patients in need.

Cannabis policy changes in Africa are welcome. But small producers are the losers by Clemence Rusenga

Cannabis is a drug crop with a long history in Africa. Alongside coca and opium poppy, it has been subjected to international control for nearly a century. The International Opium Convention of 1925 institutionalised the international control system and extended the scope of control to cannabis. In 1961 a new international convention was adopted to […]
