The Best Marijuana Stocks to Buy in 2018
These pot stocks all have one big thing in common: location

In case you hadn't noticed, the marijuana industry is absolutely on fire. According to cannabis research firm ArcView, the North American legal weed industry grew by 34% in 2016 to $6.9 billion, and is expected to grow by an average of 26% per year through 2021. If ArcView's estimates come to fruition, the legal weed market would be worth $21.6 billion in North America by 2021. This sort of rapid and consistent growth is incredibly difficult to find, which is why investors have flocked to marijuana stocks in recent years.

However, the marijuana industry is somewhat disjointed. An investor can't just throw a dart and pick a winner, because the industry is thriving in some countries while struggling mightily in others.



Pot sales now legal in California, but you can't find it everywhere yet

Strange Year for California, usual debts, IT bubbles, illegals, drugs, shooting, political corruption, droughts, fires, but here is what is strange from Hollywood --- to creepy, rapist, pedo Hollyweird ....Weinstein stuff in the movie industry?... now to a Dutch European Portland Netherland HOLLY-WEED State



Oscars will be interesting this year

maybe someone knows the Laws of this State much better than I do? I think they had a 'Liberal' attitude for some time. You could perhaps grow or own or smoke a certain amount before but it was only illegal if you got caught? Medical pot or medicinal use of weed started in 1996 you had some kind of prescription paper?

prohibition? strangely enough alcohol cigarettes even though they might have been once banned do not support weed, they see cannabis as a threat to their industries?

Spain, North Korea yes the dictatorship of the North Koran DPRK, Czech Republic, Colombia, Jamaica, Canda, Puerto Rico, Cambodia, Uruguay, Netherlands/Holland and now USA it is legal to smoke?

I may well be wrong: I thought Pot was legal in CA for decades!

Reportedly, we had huge farms of it in the northwest part of the state.

My former next-door-neighbor had a prescription for it, as well he should.
He & his bro built a handsome little greenhouse on his lot, and the plants
were usually in there, tho sometimes they came out in the yard for fresh air
or to show themselves off.

It's about time that it was legalized. I wish the Federal government would get over it's Hoover-inspired "reefer madness" approach.

As far as the long-term negative effects, MOST psychoactive drugs shouldn't be used regularly by anyone under 18-25 anyway, and that includes tobacco, alcohol, and cough syrup. The long-term effects of pot dependence are mild compare to opioid dependence.

One of the good aspects of the new law is that you're allowed to grow five plants per person. The reason why that's a good thing is that pot has often been laced with other things, and the concentration of THC varies wildly.

I never cared for pot, and IMHO the new strains of pot are too strong. Have gotten contact high from ppl in the same room; for me the experience was always unpleasant. I wish that someone would develop "heirloom" varieties of pot that would dial back the concentration of THC to 5%.

Didn't bother watching the long term effects of smoking pot video since it's ridiculous. Dude just got old, and he looks like he has scratches on his nose and a legion on his forehead. The before picture looks right out of college and the after picture looks like a mug shot.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with smoking pot.

Certainly not anything you couldn't say double for smoking cigarettes or drinking booze.

To me, this is the most important part of any legalization laws. Otherwise, legalizing it is just a blatant cash grab.

Growing your own tobacco for personal use would be as stupid as growing your own potatoes. Even at the asenine prices they charge after taxes, with the amount you'd smoke you'd have to turn your whole back yard into a field and then you've got to deal with your neighbors bitching and people stealing or damaging it, not to mention all of the work.

Growing pot OTOH is pretty low-profile and simple, and if you're a light smoker like me who only takes a few hits a day when I am using, 5 plants would be enough for me and I could just be giving a lot away or even trading for things I need.

I'm actually shocked that California is allowing this.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

You mention tourism. Not sure how that will work out. Which visitors want their Disney ride operated by a pothead?

Chances are that half the rides at Disney World are operated by "potheads".

Not a Democrat. Not a Libtard. There's nothing wrong with pot.


It's not even a partisan issue. There are plenty of Republicans and Independents who support legalizing pot.

Sounds like a few days ago AG Sessions announced he is rescinding ObamaDrone policy of not prosecuting Federal Drug charges against potheads.
Although there is nowhere in America where pot is legal, outside of Indian Reservations, now some states have provided useful gathering points to collect and arrest users and buyers.

Alcohol, when taken to excess, can & does kill people. It even kills
people who were sober when they got hit by a drunk driver.
  (OK. USA tried prohibition in the '20s; it didn't work, so drinking
became legal again.)

Tobacco, cigarettes, are also very dangerous, often causing lung cancer.

Therefore, POT seems by far the least of 3 evils. By far!


And I don't even use Pot.

Well, heck, I'm going to see how much pot I can grow, legally per CA, and grow some. And I don't even like pot.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.


I'd like to grow some, but not the modern varieties that have so much THC by weight it literally oozes out and crystallizes. No, I'd like to try and get an heirloom variety.

Now, if I was going to be a snob about it, I'd try to find this to grow:



Ancient Cannabis 'Burial Shroud' Discovered in Desert Oasis

Archaeologists are hailing the discovery of an "extraordinary cache" of cannabis found in an ancient burial in northwest China, saying that the unique find adds considerably to our understanding of how ancient Eurasian cultures used the plant for ritual and medicinal purposes.

In a report in the journal Economic Botany, archaeologist Hongen Jiang and his colleagues describe the burial of an approximately 35-year-old adult man with Caucasian features in China's Turpan Basin. The man had been laid out on a wooden bed with a reed pillow beneath his head.

Thirteen cannabis plants, each up to almost three feet long, were placed diagonally across the man's chest, with the roots oriented beneath his pelvis and the tops of the plants extending from just under his chin, up and alongside the left side of his face.

Radiocarbon dating of the tomb's contents indicates that the burial occurred approximately 2,400 to 2,800 years ago.

This discovery adds to a growing collection of archaeological evidence showing that cannabis consumption was "very popular" across the Eurasian steppe thousands of years ago, says Jiang.

Thank you. :)

This isn't about it being bad for you. People who claim it's bad never did it. Period.

If they're cracking down on it, I suspect the Privately Owned Prison Industrial Complex is looking for more cheap labor, and Sessions is their guy. Why ship the jobs to Indians that still can't speak well enough not to sound like Indians when you can pay the better prisoners pennies on the dollar to answer phones for the commissary?

The war on drugs has lost us BILLIONS in tax payer dollars and has made it so the majority of blacks in America today don't have a father. Then when they're in there they either turn into a REAL criminal or they become a Muslim most of the time. Prison is fucked.



The only reason that it has been legalized on a state by state basis is because of MONEY.

I tip my hat to California for making it legal to grow 5 plants. That's the fucking way that it should be. But make no mistake, they're going to make boatloads of tax money from this because most people can't be arsed to do anything for themselves and if they were growing the really high quality stuff they could buy in the stores, somebody is likely going to steal it anyways if they don't set up an expensive indoor system for it.

Are you trying to say black people are incapable of obeying the law? Or just black men? Or black baby daddies?
Just because Barack Hussain Obama is incapable of abiding the Law or Constitution and has been America's worst Criminal of the past decade does not mean you should use such a wide brush to paint all people of color. That would be a bit racist.

It's not even close to the same thing as alcohol, but I'm not going to get into that. Drunk driving is the number one cause of deaths on the road. Alcohol is legal.

He's barely black, and I would never judge an entire race on the actions of any one man regardless.

Look at the black fatherless rates before the War on Drugs and after the War on Drugs. Also look at the incarceration rate among blacks before and after. It's pretty easy to see what happened there.

That was referring to January 1st, 2020.


If they ever wonder why everybody in Illinois still buys their stuff from the same people they did before the cash grab, all they have to do is look at a receipt.





LOL. Back before I last quit, I was still getting an ounce for $90.

They just paid $301 for 5.1 grams, and almost 1/3rd of that was Illinois tax.

There are 28.3 grams in an ounce.

I know that new pot shop stuff is supposed to be da bomb, but I better not hear anybody smoking pot shop weed in Illinois ever bitching that they don't make enough money at their jobs.



Although I can't give them shit for not just growing their own yet. Illinois, of course, is one of the few states that doesn't even bother to hide the fact that changing their moral stance on cannabis use was just a complete desperate cash grab since it's still illegal to grow any amount of it on your own.
