5 Momentum driven Canadian licensed producers

Canadian marijuana producers have been one of the hottest places to invest and over the last month, this sector has been trading higher on very strong volume.

A lot of this volume has been on the buy side and this has caused momentum to surge higher. Currently, Canopy Growth (WEED.TO) (TWMJF), Aurora (ACB.TO) (ACBFF), MedReleaf (LEAF.TO) (MEDFF), CannTrust (TRST.CN) (CNTTF), and CanniMed Therapeutics (CMED.TO) (CMMDF) are trading at overbought levels.

This rally has caught the attention of many investors and we have seen tremendous capital enter the market and LPs have seen a significant increase in the average daily trading volume on a month-over-month basis.

2017 is Looking a Lot Like 2016

Let's have licensed pot lounges, Victoria councillors urge BC

The province should develop a licensing regime to allow for designated cannabis-consumption lounges when marijuana becomes legal next year, say Victoria councillors.

“We’re seeing a need for it in our community right now, as there are lounges that are operating illegally based on our regulations and current laws,” said Coun. Jeremy Loveday.

The recommendation will be part of a suite of suggestions the city will forward to the province for consideration as it crafts regulations governing the production, sale and use of marijuana, which the federal government plans to make legal by next summer.

BC Police: Legalizing marijuana will require more police resources

Legalizing marijuana and “keeping it out of the hands of our youth” will mean more work for police, according to Victoria Police Chief Del Manak.

Manak, presenting the draft 2018 police budget to city council on Tuesday, said the upcoming legalization will increase the need for police training, the creation of education and enforcement strategies around impaired driving, the monitoring of home grow operations and dealing with minors who illegally use and possess the drug.

Coun. Jeremy Loveday wanted further explanation from the chief, noting that possession will no longer be a crime.
