Trickle of U.K. cannabis market listings set to become a flood

Just two cannabis companies are currently publicly quoted on the U.K. markets compared to more than 60 in Canada.

But, this looks set to change over the coming months and years as cannabis business gears up to the changing regulatory environment in the U.K. and Europe.

Older cannabis consumers are likelier to be less alert and to experience side effects like anxiety and memory impairment after smoking marijuana than younger folks who used the drug.
