The New York Times ran a big story on the legal weed boom in Canada.
Last year, Canada’s licensed cannabis companies produced 20,000 pounds of dried marijuana. Once weed is legal for recreational use in Canada, demand is expected to explode to 1.32 million pounds!
Canada’s 54 licensed producers are raising cash and ramping up production as quickly as possible. But they can’t do it fast enough.
As a result, there will be a massive shortage. That’s likely going to keep prices for cannabis high. And could boost profit margins for companies in this growth sector.
The Times reports that 3.5 million Canadians ̶ or about 12% of the population ̶ use cannabis now. And that number could grow starting July 1, 2018.
Now is the best time to get invested in the RIGHT stocks.
Pot Stock Briefing
Judge Protects Marijuana Growers from Attorney General
A U.S. district court judge in California just stopped Attorney General Jeff Sessions in his tracks . . . to protect marijuana growers from the reach of the feds.
The judge ruled that a 2014 law prohibits the federal government from targeting cannabis growers IF their activities are legal within their own state.
The ruling was a huge blow to Jeff Sessions and the Department of Justice. He’s promised to crack down on the entire cannabis industry.
The good news is that 60% of Americans advocate for 100% legalization . . . and judges are ruling that state laws trump federal laws.
Canada Approves More Cannabis Producers
The number of licensed producers in Canada has grown 20% over the past few months.
Since the regulators changed the application process in May, nine new licenses have been awarded. Canada now has 54 licensed producers of cannabis.
The move is in response to growing demand for legal weed in Canada. The number of medical patients using legal cannabis has tripled within the last year, and now stands at 167,000. The market will explode in mid-2018, when recreational use is expected to be approved.
