How to invest in the spread of marijuana legalization in the US

Apr 29, 2021 01:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM ET

In the November elections, five states voted to pass cannabis reform, bringing the tally of states with recreational marijuana to 15. Thirty-six states now have medical cannabis programs – meaning that a majority of Americans now have some form of access to marijuana, whether medically or recreationally.

A Democratic Senate, House, and White House is also the best possible outcome for the cannabis industry. Though cannabis reform is expected to continue mostly on the state level, a slew of cannabis-related bills in Congress have prompted cannabis companies and investors alike to eye the changing landscape as an opportunity.

If you’re looking to invest, or just understand what all these changes mean for the economy and beyond, tune in to Insider’s exclusive webinar on April 29th at 1 PM EST.
