Canadian eh??

Found this interesting bit of info:

Canadians use marijuana at four times the world average, making Canada the leader of the industrialized world in cannabis consumption, a recent United Nations report found.

The 2007 World Drug Report by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime says that 16.8 per cent of Canadians aged 15 to 64 smoked marijuana or used another cannabis product in 2006. The world average is 3.8 per cent.

In the report, Canada ranks fifth in the world for marijuana use, behind Ghana at 21.5 per cent, Zambia, 17.7 per cent, and Papua New Guinea and Micronesia with 29 per cent each.

Cannabis accounts for the bulk of global drug use, consumed by 160 million people.

In 2006, about 200 million people, or five per cent of the world's population aged from 15 to 64, used drugs at least once. Of those, an estimated 25 million had drug dependencies.

The report found that Canada also had a high rate of usage for cocaine, at 2.3 per cent of population, ranking it third behind Spain and England.

yea, long term effects of weed vs those of alcohol, really make it an appealing option. Personally I don't smoke pot, but I don't have any prejudice against it or against anyone who does either. Visiting someone's house, below the age of 30, you're as likely to be offered a joint as you are to be offered a beer. I don't really see it as a big deal tho.

I don't smoke, but imo it's no big deal, not worse than alcohol or cigarettes.

I think this is more or less the attitude of most Canadians. From my observations anyways.
