    Description: The 2018 Cannabis Act legalizing the production, sale, and use of cannabis for non-medical purposes renewed interest in the importance of ongoing and more detailed monitoring of cannabis consumption and consequences. Some cannabis users will experience impaired control over their use of cannabis, putting them at risk for cannabis use disorder (sometimes called addiction) and other harms.

Nationally representative data from the 2020 Canadian Tobacco and Nicotine Survey were analyzed.
