determine the fate of marijuana use at a state

Voters in Michigan and North Dakota are considering the
full recreational use of marijuana for individuals over the

High-flying cannabis stocks have caught the attention of

basis of the legal cannabis industry in the coming years.”

legalization, the biggest cannabis stocks all more than doubled

use of marijuana. M
