New Study Finds Canadian Kids Smoke the Most Marijuana

Youth smoking marijuana

It seems that Canadian kids have traded in the old maple leaf on the marijuana plant, as a new survey finds that the Canadian youth smokes more pot than anywhere else in the world.

According to recent statistics published by UNICEF, Canadian children ranked first out of nearly 30 countries for having the highest pot smoking population. In fact, almost 30 percent of Canadian children ages 11-15-years-old say they have chiefed out on the ganja within the last year.

Interestingly, statistics showed that countries that had more liberal drug laws actually reported less use among the youth population. What’s more is that while Canada did not fare well when it came to marijuana usage, it ranked third-best in the world for cigarette smoking in children – just over 4 percent claim to have smoked in the past 12 months.

While concerns over youth marijuana use may be of some concern, there is speculation that the country could be on a journey to legalizing the drug in hopes of discouraging young people from partaking.
