Not everyone uses cannabis.
There’s a lot of attention on cannabis and this might lead people to believe that most people use cannabis. This is not true.
1 out of 5 Manitobans already use. The 2017 Manitoba Cannabis Survey showed that only 21.4% of Manitobans said they’d consumed cannabis in the past year.
1 out of 5 Manitobans are just thinking about it. The same survey also found that only 21.1% of Manitobans were thinking about trying cannabis after legalization.
If you add these up, you’ll see that less than half of Manitobans are current or potential cannabis users. Every Manitoban aged 19 years and up will need to make the choice that’s right for them. Don’t feel pressured to try cannabis just because it’s legal.
