North America Market to Remain Dominant on Account of Legalization of Medical Marijuana
Geographically, the global cannabis market is anticipated to be dominated by North America owing to the government-supported medical marijuana laws imposed in the U.S. In 2012, Washington and Colorado in the U.S. were the first two cities to legalize the use of cannabis for recreational purpose.
As of July 2019, about eleven states and District of Columbia in the United States have legalized the use of cannabis for medicinal purpose.
