The cost of cannabis


On this episode of The Cost of Everything we take a closer look at the role of cannabis around the world. The drug’s widespread legalization has brought an explosion on markets in Asia and new routes of commerce in the Americas. Host Christy Ai discusses how – even though legalization has expanded and the quality of the product has improved – the cannabis black market is putting a dent in the profits of the legal market and criminalizing a 'legal' drug in the West. Host Christy Ai sits down with an expert in the field, Canada resident Brad Poulos, to explore how the legality of cannabis could turn it into a $100 billion dollar business by 2026.
