One marijuana-related company, for example, was touted on the Internet through sponsored links and spam email, including a promo that claimed the stock "could double its price SOON."

No enforcement actions have been filed related to a specific marijuana-related company or stock, Walsh said. The Securities and Exchange Commission, meanwhile, could not confirm whether there were any investigations taking place
...............i think that these articles are probably written to place fear from opponents....for one, they cannot pinpoint a source company..two : no enforcement actions, means they have not found a crime and finally c) SEC could not confirm means that they don't know what the heck this person is talking about.......it's all in the way they write it.....maybe not though...maybe they did catch one, who knows......i never received any article from my broker..and i hold mjna skto and cbis.....so far....do you guys have a different company that i don't?
