Global Legal Marijuana Market: Overview

The demand within the global market for legal marijuana has been increasing on account of growing awareness about the uses of marijuana in several medical applications.  Marijuana is a psychoactive drug that is derived from cannibes plant, and is used for several medical and recreational purposes. However, the legal use of marijuana has to undergo several phases of screening before it can be be distributed to the desired industries. Several countries have imposed strict restrictions on free-selling of marijuana due to the rising instances of drug-abuse and addiction. Furthermore, smuggling of the drug has led government to tighten security at import inlets and other avenues of entry. Owing to these factors, the growth of the global market for marijuana is sluggish and is faced with multiple roadblocks. However, several territories and regions have legalised selling of marijuana subject to the certain terms and conditions. Some of the states in the US have also permitted the usage of marijuana for recreational purposes, thus, giving an impetus to the growth of the global market for legal marijuana.
