You may find it surprising, but the Post Office, the Atlanta Hawks and these seven marijuana stocks all have something in common. At first glance, you may think they have nothing to do with each other. After all, the Post Office is run by the government, the Atlanta Hawks are a professional basketball team and cannabis companies were established to profit off of the booming legal cannabis industry.But unfortunately, these very different organizations do in fact have something in common. And it just so happens that it is a very important thing. They are all losing money! None of them have made a profit in years!Obviously, the Post Office can continue to lose money forever because it's run by the governmental and the government can just raise taxes. And a professional sports team can continue to lose money as long as the owners are willing to sustain the losses.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut let's talk about the cannabis companies In the stock market, the idea is to invest in companies that are, or will be, profitable. This profitability will, in turn, lead to the share price appreciating. Financial theory, history and common sense all tell us that if a company doesn't make money it will eventually go out of business. Investors will see declining share prices and losses.Looking at the Cannabis Companies: You are probably familiar with the following companies if you trade or invest in the cannabis markets. They may have cool products and be in a cool industry, but if you are considering investing in them, it is important to understand that they are losing money. You may ask yourself, "how have they been able to lose money for a sustained period of time?"The answer is that they borrow money or issue stock and use these proceeds to cover their expenses. But eventually, the ability to do so will stop if they are never able to turn a profit. * 7 Strong Buy Stocks That Tick All the Boxes I am not saying that these companies will never earn money and that you can't profit by investing in their stocks. Some of them may eventually become great investments. My intent here is to express my belief that before making an investment in a company, one should consider if it is actually making money and what the future prospects of profitability are. In the long run, these dynamics will ultimately have a significant effect on the share price. Axim Biotechnologies (AXIM) Click to Enlarge Axim Biotechnologies (OTCMKTS:AXIM) makes a really cool product. It is a biotechnology company based in New York City. The company makes chewing gum that is infused with medicinal cannabis. This is used to treat pain, anxiety and other conditions. It can even be used to treat opioid addiction, which we all know is a terrible epidemic. I am not really sure how they do it because I'm a stock market guy, not a scientist, but I think it sounds like an awesome idea.But let's take a look at some numbers. Last year AXIM lost 12 cents per share. That means that for the year the company lost about $6.7 million. Unfortunately, losing money is nothing new to this company. In 2017 they lost $4.2 million, in 2016 the loss was $7.3 million, and it 2015 it was just over $10 million.Not surprisingly, the stock has not acted well. It is currently trading around the $1.50 level. As you can see on the chart, over the past year it has lost about 70% of its value. Maybe someday one of the company's product will be a huge success and it will become profitable, but over the past few years, it has certainly been a disappointment to shareholders. Americann (ACAN) Click to Enlarge Americann, Inc. (OTCMKTS:ACAN) is next on the list. Like many other cannabis companies, they are based in Denver. This company develops medical cannabis cultivation and processing properties. In other words, they build greenhouses. The greenhouses they build aren't like the kind my grandfather had in his garden. These are big-time greenhouses that are used for largescale industrial growing. They have built and developed over one million square feet of growing area.Americann has been involved with some enormous projects. Some of the projects include the Denver Medical Cannabis Center, the Massachusetts Medical Cannabis Center and the Illinois Medical Cannabis Center. The company is also committed to sustainability and uses clean energy from solar and geothermal sources. * 7 Stocks to Buy From the T. Rowe Price Health Sciences Fund Apparently, the Cannabis greenhouse business isn't very profitable -- at least in the way that Americann does it. Last year they lost $4.4 million which equates to a loss of 22 cents per share. This is more than they lost in the prior few years. In 2017 the loss was $2.7 million, in 2016 it was $2.2 million, and in 2015 the loss was $1.7 million. Maybe one day the company will be profitable but, as for now, they seem to be headed in the wrong direction. General Cannabis Corp. (CANN) Click to Enlarge General Cannabis Corp. (OTCMKTS:CANN) is a holding company that is based in Denver. They have four different segments -- security, operations, consumer goods and investments.The security segment provides different types of services to cannabis growers and retails stores. These services include video surveillance, transporting cash and providing security professionals. Consulting services to the cannabis industry that include obtaining licenses, compliance, logistics, retail operations and facility services are offered by the operations segment. The consumer goods segment includes developing relationships with apparel retailers and distributors. The investments segment provides loans and financing to companies within the cannabis industry.General cannabis is clearly an organization that is involved in many things. Maybe it is involved in too many things. Have you ever heard the expression "jack of all trades and master of none?" I think that could apply here. This company hasn't earned any money in years. Last year it lost almost $17 million, or 49 cents per share. The prior year's losses were less than half of that. In 2017, the loss was just over $8 million. In 2016, General cannabis lost just over $10 million and, in 2015, the loss was almost $9 million. If you're keeping track, this company has lost a total of $44 million in the past four years. Cannabis Sativa (CBDS) Click to Enlarge Cannabis Sativa, Inc. (OTCMKTS:CBDS) is next up on the list of losers. After looking at the company website for a while, I couldn't even figure out just what they actually do. I think it has something to do with providing services to cannabis dispensaries. Here is the description from MarketWatch:"Cannabis Sativa, Inc. engages in the research, development, acquisition and licensing of specialized natural cannabis related products, including cannabis formulas, edibles, topicals, strains, recipes and delivery systems. The company was founded on November 5, 2005 and is headquartered in Mesquite, NV."This company seems very mysterious to me. According to MarketWatch, there is only one employee despite having revenues that were over $500 million. One of the things that I noticed when I was looking at the financials is that the Quick Ratio is only 0.25 while the average Quick Ratio for the industry is 2.67.The Quick Ratio is the company's cash and short-term securities divided by the current liabilities. Current typically means one year or less. In other words, Cannabis Sativa only has 25 cents for each dollar of debt that they have, while the industry average is to have $2.61 for each $1 of debt. With a ratio like that, it isn't surprising that they are losing money. * 7 Energy Stocks to Buy to Light Up Your Portfolio The losses were $4.1 million in 2018, $7.6 million in 2017, $3.1 million in 2016, and $9.4 million in 2015. Tilray (TLRY) Click to Enlarge Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY) hasn't been a publicly traded company for that long. The initial public offering was last summer. This company has the distinction of being the first publicly traded cannabis company to list on the Nasdaq. Their business model is very understandable. They engage in research, cultivation, production, and distribution of cannabis and cannabinoids. Products include dried cannabis and cannabis extracts. In other words, they grow and sell weed.Like the others, this company is losing money as well. I have heard that the cannabis markets are glutted and that the price of cannabis has fallen dramatically since its legalization. Many cannabis farmers are losing a lot of money. Maybe that is why Tilray is losing money as well.Tilray went public last year, but they have disclosed financial information going back further. If you think about it, it is kind of amazing that a company that loses money could go public. This was a common occurrence back in the dot-com era. The company has a market capitalization of around $5 billion despite the fact that they lost $67 million last year. In 2017, they lost about $8 million and had a similar size loss in 2016. 22nd Century Group (XXII) Click to Enlarge 22nd Century Group, Inc. (OTCMKTS:XXII) is based in Clarence, New York. It is a biotech company. They research and develop technologies that will allow the increase or decrease of the levels of nicotine and nicotinic alkaloids in tobacco plants and the levels of cannabinoids in cannabis plants. My guess is that there will be greater demand for increasing than decreasing. This is done through genetic engineering and plant breeding. Sounds like pretty neat stuff.But don't let their cool name and cool stock symbol fool you. They are losing money. Last year the loss was $10.4 million. That is a loss of 8 cents per share. In 2017, the annual loss was close to $17 million. The loss in 2016 was just over $15 million and the loss in 2015 was just over $14 million. * 7 Stocks Worth Buying When They're Down Maybe this company will turn around one day and become successful, but the current shareholders must be disappointed. The valuation has fallen by about one-third since December as the price per share has fallen from $3 to $2 while the broader equity markets have been booming since then. The Supreme Cannabis Co (SPRWF) Click to Enlarge The Supreme Cannabis Co, Inc. (OTCMKTS:SPRWF) is last on the list. Obviously, there are many other cannabis companies that are losing money out there, but today I just wanted to focus on these seven because they seem to be popular recently. Supreme has a similar business model as Tilray. The company grows and sells cannabis, although the product may be a little different because they say it is '"sun-grown." I suppose this is in contrast to being grown with artificial light. Supreme does this through their wholly owned subsidiary 7ACRES.Perhaps The Supreme Cannabis Company should consider changing their name to "The Subprime Cannabis Company" because it is losing money. It has seen the price of its stock fall by about 20% since September. Last year the company lost around $7.3 million. Losses in 2017 were more than twice that at $15.3 million. The loss in 2016 was $4.4 million and the loss in 2015 was about $5.7 million. Maybe the future will be better, but my guess is that The Supreme Cannabis Company's shareholders are supremely disappointed.As of this writing, Mark Putrino did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

22nd Century Group (NYSE:XXII) is placing a bet that people will smoke tobacco (and maybe marijuana) even if it doesn't make them high. After a drop in mid January, XXII stock has regained some lost ground to be up 2.41% for the year so far.The company, which is based near Buffalo, NY, has a market cap of $317.2 million. It's on pace for revenue of $19 million when it reports 2018 results next week, up from $16.6 million in 2017 and $12.4 million in 2016. Losses are about equal to the revenue number.The company's technology creates very low nicotine tobacco which has been used in medical research, aimed at finding whether it can help people stop smoking.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsA home run for 22nd Century would be bringing such tobacco to market. It's seeking an FDA Premarket Tobacco Application (PMTA) for the purpose. It filed the application in December. * 10 Hot Stocks Leading the Market's Blitz Higher If you're buying 22nd Century stock, you're betting the approval comes through and that the company can sell the product, or at least that management can sell the company. Seeking Highs in the LowsCEO Henry Sicignano has been working this patch of business ground since 2010. At last report he owned 4.09% of 22nd Century, a stake worth $12.8 million. He was previously marketing director for a specialty tobacco company sold to R.J. Reynolds in 2002. In addition to researching low-nicotine tobacco, 22nd Century is researching low-THC marijuana. Because of its low market cap and share price, XXII stock is prone to wild swings based on hype. The spikes lead to short squeezes, then sudden falls in the stock price, and the inevitable flurry of charges of manipulation and resulting lawsuits.While the company is technically based in New York, most of its employees are in Mocksville, North Carolina, outside Winston-Salem, so its applications make news there.If the FDA approves the PMTA, 22nd Century would be allowed to mass produce its tobacco and offer it for sale, possibly as part of a smoking-cessation effort. If you believe the agency's nod is likely, it makes sense to buy the stock, because at a minimum 22nd Century could then become a buyout target for a large tobacco company, like Altria (NYSE:MO).That's the theory, anyway. Pump and Dump on XXII StockIn September, a short seller dubbed "Fuzzy Panda" wrote of suspected Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) action involving 22nd Century. This may have involved phony articles from people working for Barry Honig, whom the SEC has called a "microcap fraudster" .Investigation reporting website Sharesleuth has accused promoters of operating a "stealth promotion network" on financial web sites. The promoters buy a block of shares, confederates write in praise of the company in question, the stock's price rises, then the shares are dumped.Shares in 22nd Century did indeed rise through 2017, the period where the articles are said to have come out. Shares peaked in January 2018 at almost $4 each. Since that peak they have mainly traded in a range of $2-$3 per share. They opened for trade on February 15 at $2.52. Bottom Line on 22nd Century StockA fool and his money were lucky to get together in the first place. Thus, I avoid low-valuation stocks that can be subject to manipulation. It is better to get rich slowly than to go broke all at once. * 9 U.S. Stocks That Are Coming to Life Again If an idea is good, venture capitalists or private equity people will lead the company forward to a public offering at a reasonable valuation, based on revenue and earnings.A company with reported revenue of $19 million does not deserve a market cap of $313 million. An exception may be made for a drug stock that is about to hear something great from regulators.I may be wrong, but I don't believe that to be the case here.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.
