Forty per cent of Canadians in a recent survey said they support the notion of legalizing marijuana for recreational use, slightly more than those who said they oppose it.
Deloitte surveyed 5,000 Canadians recently for their views on marijuana, and the results suggest a country that is very much divided on a topic that the federal government is currently trying to clarify the rules on.
The survey was conducted online between March 13 and April 3 among 5,000 adults, 1,000 of whom self-identified as marijuana consumers after having been selected for the survey.

South Dakota’s new medical marijuana law could be scrapped and replaced with what’s being called a “compromise” that would legalize cannabis use for adults. That’s the aim of draft legislation that will be considered Tuesday by a committee that spent the summer and fall studying “adult-use” marijuana policy. “It’s about as close as we’re going to…
Watching Santa Ana, California-based Unrivaled Brands (OTCQX: UNRV) compete in this market reminds me of the movie Memento, where memoryless Guy Pearce literally experiences the action unfold along with the rest of us, even though it’s his story and he’s the only one in it living life essentially in reverse. Similarly, and this may indeed…
