According to a research report published by Ameri Research, the global legal cannabis market size is projected to be worth USD 63.5 billion by 2024. The factors driving the market growth include the trend of legalization, increasing use of cannabis products for medical purposes, high tax revenues, and rising investment in R&D. In the United States there are 28 states which have approved the use of cannabis for medical purposes, and more number of states are expected to follow suit over the next few years. Growing user base for recreational cannabis in states such as Colorado, California, Alaska, Massachusetts, Washington DC and other states is a key factor boosting the tax revenues. The report indicates that Colorado reported revenues exceeding 1.1 billion from the sale of cannabis products. Global Payout, Inc. (OTC: GOHE), OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp.
