    Welcome back to our weekly series, Schaeffer's Cannabis Stock News Update, where we recap what happened in the world of marijuana stocks last week, and look ahead to how the cannabis industry will continue to develop in the 2021.

    Investor interest in the cannabis industry is growing at an explosive growth rate, and the leading players continue to break through legal barrier after legal barrier, especially in the United States. More than 40 U.S. states legalized recreational and/or medical marijuana by the end of 2020. Now, more and more companies are starting to see the opportunity in cannabis cultivation, marketing, distribution, and technology.

    Schaeffer's Investment Research was honored to be included in Benzinga's Cannabis Capital Conference at the end of February. You can catch the full segment by our very own Senior Market Strategist Matthew Timpane CMT, on Facebook (FB).
