The CBC reports that Canadians consume four times the World average of marijuana, making Canada number one among the industrialized countries and fith in the World. CBC quotes a fresh UN report:

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.

I have been wondering about some statements of Stephen Harper lately. Stoned in Canada? I have no evidence either way.
