I don't invest on cigarette/alcohol companies on principle. Marijuana is obviously different because of its legality, but I still can't really bring myself to buy into cannabis.

I share some of your ethical concerns. Perhaps I'll post something about the that at another time. I'm assuming at this point that these stocks will probably not end up being investments that will generate great returns over the long term but they are a starting point for research into a sector that will very likely grow at a mind blowing pace over the next few years. Time will tell. Thanks for commenting!

While I can support supervised medical uses for cannabis (like terminal cancer), I cannot support anything that I believe will ultimately harm the user.  The reason I do not buy tobacco stock is that I lost my father to cancer.  His only unbreakable destructive habit was smoking.  I have lost too many truly great (smoking) friends to cancer.  I fear that cannabis would have a similar destructive effect on the brains of users.  I apologize for sermonizing but having watched two parents and several friends go through fights with cancer, I would beg any smoker to rethink what (s)he is doing.  No one should go through that.

No reason to apologize. I completely understand. This is a complex issue.

Thanks.  I think you are not such a skeptic except with stocks, where everyone should have a healthy dose of skepticism.

I too have lost family to cancer. I would urge you to do some research on cannibis and hemp oil and how  those two substances can have an effect on cancer.

I clearly pointed out in my original post that if someone had quality information about this, to please share. If there's some evidence that anyone here thinks I need to be aware of, please help me (or anyone else that's interested) out rather than commenting with insults. If you go back to my original post, I only suggested that opportunitistic investors MIGHT want to look into these companies. That's hardly an endorsement. Nor did I share my thoughts on the ethics involved in the legalization of cannabis in the US other than referring to it as 'complex.' We can work on becoming better investors by communicating or bicker. Only one of these options is of any value. Thanks so much for the feedback so far!

I fear that I pulled us off point.  For that I apologize.  If I had a medical need I would definitely look at all options.  Since I do not have anything of value to provide, I will only say that there are a lot of people watching the legal experiments in California and Colorado with interest.  Also, thank you for posting.  There are a LOT of people here and you have provided information that some would no doubt want but not be able to find quickly and easily.  That, like most posts here, provides a service.  I will refrain from anything that could be construed as bickering.  (hanging head in embarrassment)

This may count as helpful information.  From Seeking Alpha, this is the article Capitalizing on Cannabis: A Review of Publicly-Traded Marijuana by Alan Brochstein found at

Is there anything else that your on-call reference librarian can help you with this evening?  =)

It's pretty clear that almost all of these are worthless pump and dumps with no significant assets and no realistic hopes of making money.

The one possible exception is MJNA. That looks overpriced but maybe worth something more than $0.

i became interested in medical marajuana during a 2009 journey to montana where i saw 5000 patients obtaing legal med mar cards or renewing according to the yearly requirement. it was just amazing as a physician how much i learned and approved most folks with a variety of conditions.many of these patients had been self treating and having significant success with various med mar preparations...and then six months later the cannibidiol and thc story was revealed...

 fast foward to 2013 and doing a year literature search and engaging in discussions with a wide variety of users, i was invited to give grand rounds at the hospitals i am employed at.

there was increasing interest and slowly a dialogue between physicians and patients who are interested in the possibilities of better outcomes than with expensive allopathic drugs.

 soon we will share this dialogue and approach in a manual of medical marajuana and the benefits of cb1 and cb2 agonists and blockers (cannibinoid and anandamide preparations).

 for now we welcome the geometric expansion both of products and growing methods and the opening of research oppurtunities.

 in my opinion the annadamide/cannibinoid system is a big story for medicine in the coming decades providing safe, effective, legal,available, and affordable products for many difficult to treat conditions.

 i especially am excited at the work being done by global pharm, nuvilex, mjna using natural cannibinoids, also dr machoulam at h.u., pfizer, and novartis have done elegant work discovering and isolating hundreds of exciting synthetic and semisynthetic medicines.

 thank you and i will try to share the manual soon.

I am a librarian that used to put together posts to be used as references for friends.  This one - - was put together for those new to CAPS to show the variety of ways that the site could be used.  If you have a research question, just ask.  If I am checking the various blog posts where I have commented (or those I have written)  I will get back to you with an answer.  My areas of expertise were research, public libraries, and compiling databases (in the late 1970's.)

Um marijuana industry?  Marijuana undergoes tons of scrutiny for no reason.  It is the healing of the nation, found in King Solomons grave, they used to bring him herb in the "ganja pan", a big ass plate.  In order for high grade to be approved for medical and NOW RECREATIONAL purposes it must undergo thorough inspection for mites, mold, and the likes.  Excuse me for being a rude bwoy rasta mon, but if you don't invest in the marijuana industry you are the bad kind of fool who doesn't enjoy huge profits.  The factthat colorado isgetting away with a 20-25% tax on all sales and that there is already a shortage should RING DI ALARM INNA YOUR HEAD!! HIGHER HEIGHTS WE ELEVATE MON!!!!! BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY.
