CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / January 25, 2019 / The marijuana stock market has largely benefitted from a massive influx of capital over the course of the last few years. With so many legal initiatives occurring throughout the industry in North America and beyond, the cannabis industry has garnered copious amounts of public approval, resulting in the increase in investor excitement emanating from those looking for promising opportunities.
