Useless poll about useless senate. A sociological survey commissioned by a member of the Canadian upper house of parliament gave the expected results.The majority of ordinary people in the country consider the Senate to be a useless institution and treat it negatively. In particular, almost 46 percent of respondents treat the Senate negatively, while positively only 37.5 percent. The survey, which cost the taxpayers $ 15,000, clearly does not add enthusiasm among voters towards the Senate. However, voters do not elect senators; they are appointed by the government there. And this is perhaps the most important problem associated with a negative attitude towards this authority, whose existence contradicts the principle of the election of power.
Marijuana: demand is growing.
Older try, young people use.Legalization of canabis has led to a significant increase in the number of people who use this drug or at least decided to try it. In the first three months of this year, almost 650,000 Canadians first tried marijuana allowed by Justin Trudeau’s government.
In the first quarter of last year, their number was almost two times less. Most of those who started to use marijuana are from the older generation – half of them are over 45 years old. Among the regular users is dominated by young people under the age of 24 years. Despite the high cost of legal marijuana, about 60 percent prefer legal sources.
By the way, why do Canadians use marijuana? The most popular were the following answers: to relax; to combat any medical problem; for fun with friends; and finally for your own pleasure. As it turned out, 72 percent of users use canabis daily. One can only hope that among them there are no representatives of those professions on which the well-being and safety of people depend. On the other hand, more than half of canabis lovers reported that they consume less alcohol and fewer medicines.
