So the Canadian govt has done it. I would have thought it would be more prevalent by now?

And someone did the thing that worries a lot of people...

They are just going to find out that it's another revenue stream.

Not much has changed besides who gets the money. Canadians have always smoked a ridiculous amount of pot.

https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/daily-q ... 8b-eng.htm
Nationally, about 4.2 million or 14% of Canadians aged 15 years and older reported some use of cannabis products for medical or non-medical use in the past three months. More than half (56%) of the users indicated that they used some form of cannabis "daily" or "weekly."

The Government of Canada has tabled legislation to legalize, regulate and restrict access to cannabis for non-medical purposes. In order to monitor cannabis consumption before and after the impending legislative change, Statistics Canada has launched the National Cannabis Survey which will be collected quarterly throughout 2018.

Canadians were asked if they thought they would change their behaviour once cannabis is legalized for non-medical use. Regardless of use, over three-quarters (79%) said that they would not be more likely to try or to increase their cannabis consumption.
