Strolling the cobbled paths straddling the beautiful canals of Amsterdam, the smell of cannabis
is absolutely unmistakeable. In fact, it's so widespread that it would be easy to think that the city's inhabitants have the highest levels of cannabis consumption on the planet. This actually isn't the case, according to the ABCD 2018 Cannabis Price Index
In 2018, New York actually consumed the most cannabis of any city - 77.44 metric tons. While the green stuff is still illegal for recreational use in the Big Apple, it is permitted for medical use
and possession of small amounts of it has been decriminalized. Karachi in Pakistan came second for consumption last year (cannabis is illegal there) with 41.95 metric tons while New Delhi in India rounded off the top-three with 38.26 metric tons.
