The report analyses three aspects of the full legalization of cannabis, as well as the expected impact on the US economy. If all 50 states were to legalize cannabis, the number of new jobs would increase to 1 million in 2025.
Full legalization would result in more companies entering the market, more consumers and more employees on official payrolls. As a result, leading to $3.3 billion in revenue from payroll taxes alone.
The growing medical use of cannabis
The growth in this market is mainly due to the increasing legalization of cannabis, the growing medical use of cannabis. Furthermore, the growing number of elderly people who need cannabis to treat chronic diseases. However, high costs and strict rules on the production, distribution, sale, and possession of legal cannabis to some extent hinder the development of this market.

Geographically, the global cannabis market is split into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa. It, in fact, remains estimated that the North American region will dominate the global legal cannabis market in 2019.
The large share of this region is mainly due to the legalization of cannabis in several states in the US and Canada, changing people’s attitudes to cannabis use.
