10 Worst Performing Marijuana Stocks in 2018
Marijuana stocks reportedly failed to deliver in 2018, despite numerous milestones seen across this growing industry- the Farm Bill, legalizing hemp and hemp-based cannabidiol oil in the U.S, were all signed into law allowing for legal growth in the industry. Further, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first cannabis-derived drug, and Canada became the first industrialized country in the world to legalize recreational marijuana.
Despite these incredible strides, some pot stocks were down close 50% at the end of 2018, according to an article in Motley Fool in January.
