Poll: Legalization of marijuana is a week away, will this affect you?

Let us know!

On Oct. 17, marijuana will be officially legalized in Canada in order to regulate its recreational and medicinal use.

This legislation will impact businesses that serve other recreational substances such as tobacco or alcohol, while residents may also be affected by the legislation determining where adults are allowed to smoke.

We want to know where you fall, will you be impacted by this legislation? If so, how?
