Canadians like to use marijuana.

More young people consume the stuff in Canada than anywhere else in the world, a majority of citizens favour looser pot laws and the leader of a major political party toked while in office.

But which Canadian province uses marijuana the most?

That's the question answered by Statistics Canada's Canadian Community Health Survey for 2012, which asked Canadians over 15 if they used cannabis or hashish during the 12 month period. Of course, this means the numbers reflect how many Canadians are willing to admit using pot rather than how many actually do, but the survey is useful for comparing provinces.

Surprisingly, B.C. was not at the top of the list. Find out where the provinces stacked up in the slideshow below.
