This interactive graph illustrates several key cannabis metrics, including:
Illicit Price: The average price per gram of cannabis on the illicit market, 2015-16
Users: The projected number of resident cannabis users, 15 years of age or over, 2018
Volume: The projected total resident consumption of dried cannabis, 2018
Frequency of Use: The percentage of the resident population, 15 years of age or over, that reported using cannabis in the last year, according to the 2012 Canadian Community Health Survey – Mental Health.
Projections are presented in terms of high, low and middle estimates. This approach takes into account the present uncertainty in the government’s policies, as well as the uncertainty in the limited data that exist.
