Pt. Roberts, WA; Delta, BC – May 9, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) www.Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including marijuana and hemp stocks, releases an exclusive podcast discussion with Troy Dayton, CEO and Founder of the Arcview Group, from the recently held Arcview Investor Forum in Vancouver B.C.

The Arcview Group’s Investor Pitch Forum, held at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver, Canada from April 30th to May 2nd, brought together over 200 high-net investors with cannabis thought leaders and companies at the forefront of the new space. The conference comes at a time when Canada is months away from legalization and the U.S. is increasingly gesturing toward market liberalization.

Commenting on the state of the North American cannabis market, the Arcview Group’s CEO and Co-Founder, Troy Dayton, attributed growth trends to the legislation that has already been changed.

“This market’s growing at about a 27 percent compound annual growth rate in North America,” he said. “That’s about a $10 billion USD market today, growing to about a $24 billion USD market. Most of that is not from new laws changing, this is from laws that have already changed. So, when you start looking at what’s going to change in the next few years you will see that impact on the market out into 2022, 2023, 2024…”

Internationally, Dayton forecasts slower overall growth, but notes that many markets won’t be stifled by U.S. style federalism when it comes to legislation.
