Apparently, Canadian cannabis consumers still can’t find the right words to share their habits within their dinner tables, especially with their parents, as seen on survey results. Even after legalization of cannabis consumption, talking about it still remains a field that we’re yet to take comfortably.

An online survey orchestrated by cannabis brand FIGR conducted by Maru/Blue and was outlined by the Toronto Sun. This pool of 1,507 randomly selected Canadian adult respondents showed that only thirty-nine percent (39%) of the population of active cannabis users were comfortable with discussing their cannabis consumption with their parents. It drops further to fourteen percent (14%) when chatting with their grandparents.

The same research tackled the use of cannabis during holidays and special occasions, where families are usually expected to be celebrating together. Thirty-six percent (36%) stated that they would smoke or consume a form of cannabis during these times. However, almost the entirety of these cannabis consumers, thirty-five percent (35%), answered that they only do so discreetly and without the ...
... knowledge of their families.

When The Toronto Sun asked Martha Clark, the marketing director of FIGR, about her reaction and take on the survey results on why most Canadians opt not to discuss cannabis use with their parents she said, “The stigma remains.” She also added, “I think when you’re in a safe space with your friends, a partner, people are more likely to be open. But there definitely needs to be that element of trust.”

Analyzing the data, Clark addresses that these results are still predominantly affected by the fact that the legal status of cannabis consumption in Canada had only been two years, at the time of the survey.

“I think we just have to put it in perspective. We had almost a century of prohibition. We had with media, with movies, we definitely had this, quote, unquote, war on drugs, for a very long time… So we are seeing (attitudes) open up to cannabis consumption but it’s going to take time. We’re only two years in.” Clark said to The Toronto Sun.

On the other side of the survey, it shows that a majority of cannabis consumers are more vocal and open with their usage of the drug with their respective social circles and groups. Seen with eighty-eight percent (88%) were comfortable with discussing their cannabis use with their friends, sixty-eight percent (68%) said that they talk about it with their significant other, and sixty percent (60%) are open with their siblings. The opposite can be said when discussing it with their employers or boss since only seventeen (17%) said that they have disclose this information about their personal life in their workspace.

Clark responded about the difference in the results when it comes to the openness of cannabis users with their parents, social circles, and workplace. She said, “And then as you have this generational divide, less than half are open about cannabis consumption with their parents and even with their grandparents, that’s not a topic that’s approached. People aren’t as likely to talk about their cannabis consumption with their boss. It’s not a topic that would be approached in the workplace.”

Lastly, Harvey Carroll, president of FIGR, stated that during the survey fifty-nine percent (59%) of the respondents acknowledge and seen the effects post-legalization making cannabis usage more socially acceptable.
