VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – It seems the number one gift for dads on Father’s Day this year is cannabis or a cannabis-related product.

That comes from a survey done by Lift, a tech company that works in the cannabis industry.

They polled dads who use cannabis and found that 83 per cent would welcome a cannabis-related gift of some kind. The numbers were higher for younger dads.

This is the first Father’s Day since the legalization of cannabis in Canada.

Last year, Lift asked people if they would get high with their dads once legalization came into effect, but only 14 per cent thought that was a good idea.
