New Delhi: Delhi, known for running high on politics, power and Punjabi music, now appears to be running high on weed.

According to a new study, Delhi is the third largest consumer of cannabis in the world, having consumed 38.26 metric tonnes or 38,260 kg, reported News18.

 

The study, '2018 Cannabis Price Index' conducted by ABCD, which is a data-driven media campaign outlet, has released new data which revealed the number of marijuana head and growshops in 120 cities around the world.

As per the study, Delhi ranked in the top 10 cities with the highest consumption of cannabis, following New York (USA) and Karachi (Pakistan). Mumbai also makes it to the top ten, ranking at six, with an average of 32.38 tonnes, or 32,380 kgs.

'Cannabis' in India can be defined under two board forms, hemp - and cannabis plant.

The study also stated that Delhi is in the top 10 cities for the least expensive cities in the world, putting the cost at just 4.38 USD, or Rs 315 per gram.

 

Surprisingly, India doesn't show up in countries where marijuana would be profitable if it was taxed.

Amsterdam in the Netherlands, which would be on any pot-lovers bucket list, is ranked 56th with an annual consumption of 3.6 tons.
