The cannabis sector has gained significant traction in the North American market after the US administration signaled plans to remove marijuana from its federal banned substance list.
Analysts forecast the sector’s rapid growth in the coming years, driven by demand for both recreational and medicinal consumption of marijuana. The administration is close to passing a bill to federally decriminalize cannabis use that will allow the interstate trade in marijuana.
On Dec 4, 2020, the House voted in favor of removing marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. The President now must sign the legislation after Senate approval before it becomes a law.
