Great Signs That U.S. Marijuana Legalization & Pot Stock Gains Are on the Way
September 20, 2019
U.S. Marijuana Legalization Imminent I like to call U.S. marijuana legalization the Holy Grail of the pot industry. That's because, once the U.S. passes federal legalization, we're going to see the biggest legal pot market in the world open up. Gone will be all those pesky restrictions currently in place that bar many investors from reaping rewards from the many parts of the U.S. that are currently legally open for marijuana sales. Furthermore, states that currently disallow pot sales will be brought into the fold. It would mark a major victory, and gains would ensue for pot stocks. The good news is that U.S. marijuana legalization is closer than ever. While we've been.
