According to a new study by SurveyMonkey, Quebec offers the lowest price for weed in Canada.

Methodology

This Surveymonkey online poll was conducted from January 25 to February 28, 2018. It is based on responses from 17,139 people who consumed cannabis during this five-week period. Estimated prices included grams ranging from $2 to $20 and prices outside of this range were treated as outliers. The poll is taken among a sample of self-selected subjects and could include statistical biases.

The majority of responses received were from people who used cannabis for non-medical purposes. Most respondents also reported being daily users of cannabis and indicated that the marijuana they were purchasing was high quality. Very few respondents said they were getting low quality pot.
