The LCBO is high on the list of places Ontarians think should sell 
legal weed, according to a new poll.

And the union representing liquor store workers says their members 
are ideally suited to keep the kush out of the hands of kids.

The Nanos Research survey, commissioned by the Ontario Public Service 
Employees Union, found that 41% of respondents ranked the liquor 
store as their top choice to sell marijuana when it is legalized by 
the federal government.

OPSEU president Warren "Smokey" Thomas pointed to the poll at Queen's 
Park on Tuesday as evidence that people are ready for the change, but 
it has to be done right. "I don't see selling it anywhere else other 
than a place that's controlled," Thomas said.

The survey also found that 32% would choose pharmacies as their first 
choice to sell recreational marijuana.
