According to Ameri Research Inc, the global legal marijuana market was valued at $14.3 Billion in 2016 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 21.1% between 2017 and 2024, culminating in 2024 global sales of $63.5 Billion. The legal marijuana market is witnessing robust growth owing to the increasing legalization and decriminalization of marijuana across North America and Europe. The rising demand of marijuana for recreational use and medical use is a key factor driving the growth. Due to the complex regulatory structure at state level and federal level, the full potential of the market is not yet realized as well the potential for continue growth.

A study by Georgia State University last year found alcohol sales had tumbled 15 per cent in US states where medical marijuana had been legalized. States are legalizing the adult use of cannabis for various reasons, but there's no doubt that one of the primary ones is the potential impact on both the economy and government coffers.
