Karachi, Pakistan’s renowned port city, remains the second most cannabis consuming cities in the world with almost 41.95 tons used in 2018, according to the Weed Index-2018 report.

Interestingly, cannabis which also known as marijuana is illegal all over Pakistan including Karachi. Despite the fact, the metropolitan city is the second city after New York in the list of top ten cities of pot consumers.

New York takes the top spot with 77.44 tons and New Delhi comes in third with 38.26 tons use of the drugs.

The top ten list also includes Los Angeles, Cairo, Mumbai, London, Chicago, Moscow and Toronto respectively.

Last year, Karachi had been ranked as the second-largest consumer of cannabis, also known as marijuana or weed, among 120 cities, according to a study by Seedo, an Israel-based company that sells devices to grow marijuana at home.

The next door neighbour, India’s New Delhi and Mumbai were also placed among the top 10 cities of the world with the highest rate of marijuana’s consumption per year, confirmed by Seedo’s 2018 Cannabis Price Index.

It is known that such South Asian cities manage to sell the cheapest marijuana in the world, approximately priced from Rs100 to Rs500 for a gram of lower quality.
