Although, generally, Canadian companies have had success venturing south of the border, when push comes to shove, Uncle Sam’s message to Canadian cannabis companies has been less than welcoming, including imposing a travel ban on Canadians who are investing in the U.S. cannabis market.

The value of the global cannabis market is set to soar to new heights, as more countries and American states legalize the drug, according to a new industry report.

Global legal spending on cannabis is forecast to be US$40.6 billion in 2024, nearly triple the US$14.9 billion estimated to be spent this year, according to Arcview Market Research and cannabis industry analysis firm BDS Analytics, which released its annual "State of the Legal Cannabis Markets" report on Thursday.
