Pot is Canadian drug of choice, Statscan says

More than 10 million Canadians have tried cannabis at least once in their life, and that number keeps growing, according to the latest drug use survey conducted by Statistics Canada.
Based on data from the Canadian Community Health Survey conducted in 2002, Statscan estimates three million of those used some form of marijuana or hashish that year.
“Nearly half of those who had used cannabis in the previous year had done so less than once a month. About 10 per cent reported they had used it on a weekly basis, and another 10 per cent said they used it daily,” the agency said in a statement.
Those numbers were up considerably from the agency’s last usage survey. Whereas 12 per cent of Canadians used marijuan in 2002, only 7.4 per cent did so in 1994.
