The poll also found that Canadians would prefer that cannabis be sold in dedicated dispensaries or pharmacies than through a liquor store, which is the preferred choice of Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.

Justin Trudeau first promised in 2013 to legalize marijuana, a drug that has been prohibited in Canada since 1923.

The poll of 1,000 Canadians found that legalizing marijuana is supported or somewhat supported by 68 per cent of the population.
