Zambia has legalized the production and export of cannabis for economic and medicinal purposes, the government’s chief spokeswoman said on Monday, becoming the latest country to shift its position on the drug to give its finances a boost.

Brazil’s health regulator has approved guidelines for the sale of medicinal products derived from cannabis.

Canadians spent about $908 million on non-medical cannabis in the first year since legalization, but online sales dropped as more brick-and-mortar locations opened, said Statistics Canada.

Up to five companies active in the cannabis industry could go public in 2020 in Europe, a continent whose stock markets have largely missed out on the North-American “pot stocks” frenzy, a leading industry analyst said on Thursday.

Top officials in Thailand are getting the word out about medical marijuana -- in part by distributing cartoon cannabis dolls and publicly using marijuana oils.

For several decades, Amsterdam has been a widely-visited Dutch city that’s been at the forefront of successful cannabis coffee shops.
