Which Major Cities Consume the Most Cannabis?

With the cannabis industry growing at an exponential rate. We are going to need data to make the right decisions on how to expand this industry. 

An analytics company named Seedo recently released “2018 Cannabis Price Index.”.

Seedo’s report examined the price per gram of pot in 120 cities worldwide, the potential tax that could be collected if weed were taxed at the same rate as tobacco cigarettes and, perhaps most interestingly, analyzed which global cities consume the most and least marijuana each year, in metric tons.

Notice how four of the top ten cities are in North America. Proving cannabis is growing in acceptance in this area.  Hopefully this will be a push to reform these laws in the right direction.
