Health Canada is tackling the marijuana shortage with this game-changing move

Pardon the cliche, but the marijuana industry appears to be the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Although the cannabis industry has existed for decades behind the scenes, the legalization of recreational weed in Canada, along with more than 40 countries giving medical marijuana the green light around the world, has opened the floodgates for legal revenue to flow into the industry.

But, as is common with any nascent and fast-growing industry, it's dealing with growing pains. This is especially true of our neighbor to the north, Canada.

Canadians' support for legal pot dropped in 2019; edibles interest mixed: Survey

Support for recreational cannabis among Canadians has dropped since the drug was legalized last year amid a shaky roll-out of legal pot and a still-robust black market, according to a survey published Thursday. 

In a survey conducted by Dalhousie University and the University of Guelph, half of Canadians support the legalization of recreational cannabis, down from about 69 per cent back in 2017. Meanwhile, uncertain sentiment surrounding legalization has grown to 20 per cent of the country, up from about 7 per cent two years ago, the survey found.

Bill Weld — is in talks to buy Greenleaf Compassion Center, in Portsmouth, one of only three medical marijuana dispensaries in Rhode Island.

Health Canada changes cannabis licensing process in bid to cut wait times

Health Canada is changing its process for issuing cannabis licences, in a bid to reduce wait times, after a review found a "significant amount" of its resources was used to approve numerous applications for facilities that have yet to materialize years later.

Effective immediately, new applicants for licences to cultivate, process or sell cannabis — for either medical or recreational purposes — must now have a fully built site that meets the regulations when they submit their application, the government agency said.

Prior to this, cannabis licence applicants could submit an application with their plans and get approval before building.

Medical vs. recreational cannabis: Where should I invest?

It’s an exciting time to be a cannabis investor!

The Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences Index ETF (OTC: HMLSF) is obliterating the broader markets…

Year to date, the exchange-traded fund has more than doubled the performance of tech stocks and blue chips.

But I think its run is far from over. There are plenty of catalysts on the horizon. We have pro-cannabis legislation – like the STATES Act and the SAFE Banking Act – inching its way forward in Congress.

Is recreational cannabis still fueling marijuana stocks?

The marijuana stock market has been quite heavily fueled by companies that produce recreational cannabis for some time now. These companies have been working to put out large quantities of the substance, sometimes ranging in the hundreds of thousands of kilograms. For this reason, we have seen a decline in the amount that believes the marijuana industry may see a supply shortage, but many factors still remain up in the air. For now, it seems as though the marijuana stock market is riding high as we continue to traverse the future of the industry.
