No. 1 Wall Street pot analyst says the marijuana market will be much bigger than she first thought

The cannabis industry's rapid evolution and new strategic partnerships with mainstream brands reveal a far larger possible market for legal marijuana than investors and analysts first anticipated, according to Cowen. Cowen's Vivien Azer nearly triples her 12-month price forecast on Canadian marijuana producer Tilray this week to $172 from $62. Recreational use of cannabis in Canada becomes legal Oct. 17, though each of the country's 10 provinces will be able to regulate the market within their jurisdiction.
