President Trump’s former attorney general, Jeff Sessions, was staunchly against marijuana. His forced resignation on Wednesday is good news for marijuana investors in the long run.
And good news for marijuana keeps piling up. Please see “Marijuana’s biggest win is still ahead — but investors may lose money before then.”
So should investors buy marijuana stocks with both hands today? Not so fast. Investing in marijuana is not easy. Those with less experience think all they have to do is buy a few marijuana stocks, and they will make millions. That could not be further from the truth. Please see 11 pointers given in “How to potentially become a marijuana millionaire, albeit carefully.”
Sessions’ temporary replacement is Matthew Whitaker. How does he feel about marijuana? How long will his tenure be? Will he have a contentious relationship with Congress over Mueller’s probe of Trump? He seems to be sympathetic to patients needing marijuana, but he also seems to be pro-law enforcement.
With all this in mind, is good news about marijuana at its peak for the short term? And is peak good news good or bad for marijuana stocks? Let’s examine with a chart.
