Marijuana Stocks to Invest in!


-Max Levin

Many believe that cannabis or marijuana should be legalized and grown in

America. Recently, our country has reached historic milestones, when the Judiciary

Committee constructed a meeting on their first ever hearing regarding the legalization of

Marijuana on September 10th of this year. Citizens across the country believe that for

the government to even consider legalization is a HUGE step in the right direction, and

believe that by doing this, there will be positive benefits economically.

! Economists, reformists, and the government estimated the medical marijuana

and cannabis market at a staggering $10 billion to over $120 billion a year. If

legalization was to occur, those numbers would sky rocket, pushing the tobacco market

and other substitute products way down.

! Currently, 20 states are under the act of legal medical marijuana, but only a

select few legalized marijuana for personal use. Colorado recently legalized marijuana

for non-medical use and so did Washington, yet there is laws restricting of how much

one can carry and grow. Many agree that a domino effect could occur, triggering other

states to follow in their foot steps.

! A huge benefit for the government to the legalization of marijuana would be

taxation. Cutting down the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) would occur, saving billions

of dollars for the government and less drug trafficking and violence would happen

because of the lack of demand in the states.

! A study has been recently made that the average price of 0.5 grams of marijuana

sold for $8.60, with a production cost of $1.70, leaving a total cost of $6.90 a gram. The

cannabis bubble is stretching by the day and is ready to pop, releasing opportunity and

profit. Marijuana stocks are alive and thriving, to which many analyzes say that an

investment in should be immediate and that the upward trend is inevitable. Here are

some stocks that may catch your interest:

! Cannabis is the most frequently used illegal drug in the United States of America.

Nearly 69 million people, in America, over the age of 12 have tried Marijuana at least

graduating high school. Besides the negative effects to the human body, Americans still

do it, creating a huge market to break into, of course once it is legalized. Breaking into

the market has to be done before it is legalized due to the larger profit margin that could

be obtained.

! There is a strong trend throughout the markets of Marijuana/Cannabis based

stocks and securities. Analysts concluded that the next large legal “fad” will be of this

substance. If ever legalized, the market of Marijuana will go through the roof.
