LAS VEGAS, February 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
FN Media Group Presents Microcapspeculators.com News Commentary
Investing in the marijuana industry is a hot topic in 2018. The marijuana industry is still in its infancy as states continue to legalize at different points in time. Companies working with cannabis have tons of potential right now as states move toward legalization. Think back to the end of prohibition, investors began purchasing shares of companies producing alcohol. What if you could go back in time before the ratification of the 21st Amendment that repealed Prohibition? What would you do with the knowledge that soon the sale of alcohol would be legalized federally? What sort of investment opportunities would exist for you? Included in today's commentary: NightFood Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NGTF), GW Pharmaceuticals plc, INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: INSY), Terra Tech Corp. (OTC: TRTC), General Cannabis Corp. (OTC: CANN), and Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA).
Investors who purchased shares of alcohol producers and distributors like Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV (BUD) or Pabst Brewing Company as prohibition was lifted collected very attractive returns over the next couple of decades. This was especially true for shareholders of Anheuser-Busch, as the company grew to become the largest beer maker in the world. Those investors' children and grandchildren are still seeing those returns.
Since marijuana is not legalized at the federal level, this has given states that have legalized the room for creativity and innovation, and at an incredibly fast pace toward production. How you say? Well federal compliance and lengthy standardization processes and practices have not yet been established across the cannabis industry. Giving states the authority to allow companies to grow and produce at incredibly fast rates.
