"We're Number One . . . ."

in the industrialized world, anyway. (Maybe not "we" yet, but soon in our case . . . . )

From the CBC today:

Canada tokes at 4 times world average: UN
CBC News

Canadians use marijuana at four times the world average, making Canada the leader of the industrialized world in cannabis consumption, a recent United Nations report found.

The 2007 World Drug Report by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime says that 16.8 per cent of Canadians aged 15 to 64 smoked marijuana or used another cannabis product in 2006. The world average is 3.8 per cent.

Just one more reason to love Canada, eh ? ? ? ?

Yeah, we're not that "high" on it, either. (Pardon the expression . . . . )
