The Canadian government is outlawing the home growing of marijuana for medical use. There are now more than 37,000 people who are allowed to used weed for medical problems as prescribed by a doctor. The number of users is expected to grow to as many as 450,000 by 2024.
Now marijuana will be grown by large indoor farms certified by the national police and health inspectors. The farms will produce, package and distribute a range of standardized weed, and imports will be allowed.
The new market system is expected to be worth $1.3 billion.
