Marijuana Stocks?
« on: March 08, 2014, 03:20:09 PM »
I live in Colorado, and I am watching the legalized marijuana industry grow and mature quickly. It's hard not to project 10 years into future, where I forsee the beginnings of "big cannabis" and the corporatization of the weed market across the country.

It is very tempting to put some "play" money (less than 5% of my net worth?) into cheap/fledgling public companies playing in this space. Has anyone else considered these companies as investments? Or am I just crazy?

Prior discussions around this idea:

Given that the second thread is only two months old, I'm going to lock this one to keep discussion all in one place.  All people interested in commenting on the viability of MJ stocks please go comment in that thread.  :)
