The Saskatchewan Government is surprised by the over 30 thousand people who have either fully or partially completed a marijuana legalization survey.
The survey, which has been open for a week and a half, covers topics such as age limits, taxation, impaired driving laws, and public consumption.

- U of S prof believes feds are moving too quickly in legalizing marijuana
Don Morgan, Saskatchewan Justice Minister, says if people also think there should be more time to decide on the issue of legalizing marijuana in Canada, they should contact Federal officials.
“We don’t have any reason to think there’s a willingness on the part of the federal government to make changes,” said Morgan. “However, if you think you would like to have more time to be able to consider it, we encourage people to phone their Member of Parliament. Or phone the Prime Minister’s office. We’ve heard from the Chiefs of Police and they have asked for extra time as well.”
Morgan says initial response to the survey has been overwhelming.
“I had no idea there would be that much concern on the part of the public,” Morgan told 620 CKRM News. “Or that much of a willingness to participate or have their voice heard. We have not yet gone into the results. We can’t say what type of issues have been raised in the survey itself, just yet.”
The survey is open until October 6th
