A new anonymous poll by Bloomberg learned that of 29 legal cannabis producers in Canada and the US, only 17 have CEOs who admitted using their products either medically or recreationally.

  • Six other CEOs, despite being reassured their responses would be anonymous, refused to answer.
  • The CEOs of Hexo and 48North both publicly confirmed they use cannabis.
  • Green Organic Dutchman CEO Brian Athaide said he didn't currently use cannabis because he doesn't like smoking, but looks forward to enjoying edibles when they're legal next year.
  • WeedMD CEO Keith Merker argued CEOs may want to keep their cannabis use private out of fear of reprisal at the border. He would not say whether or not he used cannabis.
