WORLD|Guess Which Country Has the Biggest Population of Cannabis Consumers


Ever wonder which country has the largest population of cannabis consumers? You might assume that it’s Canada, which legalized recreational cannabis last October. Or America, where 11 states have legalized recreational use and another 22 allow medical marijuana. But both of those guesses are wrong.

The country that smokes the most cannabis is the African nation of Nigeria, which has a surprisingly open and vibrant cannabis culture.

According to a recent report from Business Day, 19.4 percent of Nigerians over the age of 15 have consumed cannabis in the past year. That’s around 39 million people who smoke up each year and contribute to an illicit industry that has an estimated value of $15.3 billion dollars.
