It’s a widely-known fact that cannabis is a controlled substance in the UK, a class B drug that is illegal for recreational use. However, it is also a fact that cannabis and its associated products constitute an industry that is rapidly becoming one of the most widely talked about in the UK, Europe and throughout the world.
Despite the drug’s legal status, numerous factors are contributing to it becoming a defining M&A trend of the 2020s: a rapidly shifting legal and regulatory landscape; a thriving sector with a wide array of innovative and well-capitalised businesses; and, increasingly, a tide of opinion in favour of a more tolerant approach.
Clearly, for those looking to invest or buy into this sector, the situation is highly complex and, despite the massive potential inherent in the cannabis market, there are numerous competing issues that will govern its future in the UK and elsewhere.
