canada-pot-flag3More Canadians than ever support decriminalizing marijuana, according to a new Ipsos poll conducted on behalf of Global News. Ipsos found 65 per cent of Canadians (29 per cent strongly/36 per cent somewhat) support the decriminalization of marijuana so that possession of small amounts would no longer carry a penalty or fine. Conversely, 35 per cent of people oppose (18 per cent strongly/17 per cent somewhat) decriminalization.
