It has been a brutal 2019 for cannabis stocks following its 2018 boom. Most cannabis stocks have lost a large chunk of their value since the start of the year. However, they could still end the year on a high.
Recreational and medicinal marijuana has been legalized in nine states in the US. More states are working on legalizing it, and this could be a big boost for the cannabis industry. With the US economy performing excellently in recent months, cannabis stocks could make a late rally in the next two months.
