In these two markets, this is a nationwide federally approved policy. It comes after recreational cannabis markets approved at state and local levels in United States, which dates back more than a decade. California has had recreational cannabis since the early 2000.
The change in legislation and attitudes towards marijuana or cannabis comes because of the understanding of its medical properties. Furthermore, significant number of people around the world consume cannabis for recreational purposes.
