Canada - British Columbia: The provincial government has published the findings of a survey launched in spring 2022 on non-medical cannabis-consumption spaces such as cannabis lounges and other establishments with cannabis for sale and use on-site. It found 61% of telephone respondents and 34% of online respondents supported cannabis consumption spaces. Most people who use cannabis supported them, as did cannabis retailers, producers, and industry associations. Consumption spaces were generally not supported by non-users, or by some public health and safety organisations or local governments. No decisions on consumption spaces have yet been made, pending further analysis of issues raised in the survey.
