WASHINGTON, March 3, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Frontier, the leading Big Data provider in the cannabis industry, explores the international outlook for legal cannabis in the 2016 Global Legal Cannabis Markets: A Worldwide View. In the first ever report on the current and future outlook for legal cannabis across the world, New Frontier looks at the current approaches to marijuana regulation in key markets as well as factors that may impact the evolution of those markets in the coming years.

"Many governments are in the midst of internal debates on how best to proceed with marijuana regulations. As support for cannabis legalization grows, many world leaders are encountering obstacles between the mandates from their electorate and the regulatory hurdles created by international treaties. It is imperative that the industry move forward with a factual understanding of what is occurring across all borders as the debate around legalized cannabis is rapidly building global momentum," said Giadha Aguirre DeCarcer, New Frontier Founder and CEO.

New Frontier's findings identify the top developments that will shape the growth and trajectory of legal marijuana markets around the world in the year ahead. This report is geared towards helping industry leaders better understand the rapidly evolving global landscape. Additionally, by segmenting the market into current and the potential future scenarios, this research helps the cannabis sector better prepare for the expanding worldwide opportunity of new cannabis legalization.
