New survey shows Calgarians appear to be pro pot

Last Updated Feb 13, 2018 at 6:03 am MDT

Calgarians, for the most part, appear to be in favour of legalizing marijuana.

On Monday, the city revealed its survey results on how residents feel about cannabis, as they try and figure out what bylaws will be needed from a municipal point of view.

According to the survey results, one in four Calgarians say they will be users or potential users, that includes the seven per cent who consider themselves frequent users of the drug.

Project lead Matt Zabloski says these numbers are largely in line with national survey results on how Canadians feel about cannabis.

“The province of Alberta has indicated they’re going to treat this a lot like tobacco with some consideration for areas where children might be present but they have left the door open for municipalities to further regulate it,” he said.

The survey also looked at home growing and public consumption.

They hope to have proposed bylaws for councillors to vote on by April 5.
