CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / February 22, 2019 / The marijuana stock market has taken over media headlines over the course of the past few years, during the course of which top players in the cannabis industry have seen a substantial increase in investor interest. Considering the innovative approaches companies in the sector are taking to develop high-quality products for cannabis consumers, it makes perfect sense that this had resulted in the excitement surrounding the market. In addition to the positive shift in public opinion, lawmakers across the global cannabis space are putting forth legislation in favor of legalizing marijuana. If these trends remain consistent, the cannabis sector could generate potential opportunities for investors. CLS Holdings USA Inc (CLSH), GW Pharmaceuticals plc (GWPH), New Age Beverages Corporation (NBEV), and Village Farms International Inc (VFF.TO) (VFF.TO) are 4 pot stocks worth keeping on your radar.
