Although we are up there, a recent survey by Stats Canada reveals that Nova Scotians toke up a little more than the rest of Canada. Or they are simply the most honest about it.

In B.C., 14.2% said they smoked marijuana in the last 12 months, compared to 14.8% in Nova Scotia. The Canadian average is 12.2%.

The survey was done last year with Canadians aged 15 and older.
