Talk of legalizing marijuana across the U.S. has been growing like a weed. And as controversial as it may be, it’s also one of the most explosive opportunities we’ve seen. In fact, with recent legalization, marijuana could very well be a $30 billion market in four years. It’s only a $6.7 billion industry right now, up 30% from 2015. Right now, 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for medical purposes. As for its recreational approval, California just became the eighth state to make it legal. Again, controversial or not, you can’t ignore the numbers.
CGC is one of the hottest stocks in this sector. We’d like to see a test of $40, near-term. It last traded at $32.75.
