- Source of cannabis was based on the following question: "In the past three months, where did you get the cannabis you used?" Eleven response categories were provided and reduced to 5 for this table: 1) Grow – I grow or someone else grows; 2) Legal – authorized retailer or online from a licensed producer; 3) Illegal – Compassion club, dispensary or storefront, online from another source, acquaintance, or dealer; 4) Friends or family – family member or friend or shared around a group of friends; 5) Other.
- The legal status of the source was not verified.
- Because respondents could choose more than one category, the sum of the percentages may not add to 100%.
