This is individual research and does not constitute investment advice.

There’s no doubt about it: Pot is one of the most exciting investment opportunities out there.

The number of U.S. states that legalized cannabis use in one form or another continues to grow. And the country is bookended by rapid legalization on the two coasts.

Along the west coast, recreational use is legal in every state.

Along the east coast, there are many states to go – but it’s filling in quickly.

And in the Northeast, adult-use is now legal in Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont.

Not to mention New York is considering a move toward recreational legalization as well. And there was a massive pop in shares of industry giant Canopy Growth Corp. (NYSE: CGC) as it announced it was entering the New York hemp market.

So despite all of the headlines from 2018, cannabis is still making waves… and it’s far from done.

That’s why it was my pleasure to interview Elevate Northeast Executive Director Beth Waterfall this week. She’s gone from patient to advocate to being named one of Boston Business Journal’s 40 Under 40.

In the interview I break down how the newest adult-use markets are doing. And then Waterfall shares her expertise in the Northeast cannabis market, as well as insights into some of the regulatory holdups that are plaguing the industry.

These are the issues every investor must understand.

Good investing,

Matthew
