Cannabis is undergoing a process of re-liberalisation in Asia, where the damaging drug control policies, which have been pushed for decades, are receding in favour of more sensible, supportive and economically sound policies.

While countries such as India, South Korea, China and Japan still face regulatory hurdles from their respective governments, there are burgeoning opportunities for commercialisation in exports – and even loopholes that allow for certain businesses to operate and thrive.

In this report, Prohibition Partners and Teera Group explore the cannabis regulations and market developments in the most populous continent in the world, uncovering unique challenges and opportunities across various countries in Asia.
