Just in 2017, medical cannabis totaled $7.3 billion, up from $4.8 billion in 2016. This segment will likely achieve a 22.2% CAGR to reach nearly $19.8 billion at the producer level in 2022 and will account to more than 80% of the global market. Politics aside, one must remember that marijuana is still a drug and needs to be treated as such with its potential side effects.
