“Star Wars,” just in case you’ve been living in another galaxy, is an epic space opera created by George Lucas. The first film premiered in 1977 and it has become a cult classic plus one of the most financially successful film and marketing franchises.

California declares marijuana smoke, THC a risk to pregnant women

A California panel voted on Wednesday to require warning labels for cannabis products sold legally in the state.

California’s Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification Committee made the decision after concluding that marijuana smoke and its active ingredient, THC, are harmful to pregnant women and the development of the fetus, says Tracy Woodruff, a professor at the University of California, San Francisco, and a member of the committee.

“We reviewed probably several hundred studies,” Woodruff says of the committee’s research. “We were focused on the effects of exposure to cannabinoid smoke and THC on development, so development of the fetus.”

New Jersey is poised to let voters decide if marijuana should be legal

State lawmakers inched closer Thursday to letting voters decide next year if marijuana should be legal in New Jersey.

“It’s time we give the voters an opportunity to weigh in on this,” Sen. Nicholas P. Scutari (D., Union) said during the final — and constitutionally required — hearing before legislators vote on whether to put recreational marijuana legalization on the November ballot.

That vote is scheduled for Monday. Scutari said it would have been preferable to legalize marijuana through the Legislature, but that "appears to not be the avenue we can go.”

Where will Aurora Cannabis be in 10 years?

Buying and holding stocks for lengthy periods of time is arguably the best way to produce top-notch returns on capital. Nevertheless, long-term investing isn't without its own particular risks. In order to generate market-beating returns over a period of, say, 10 years, investors need to have a firm grip on a company's underlying fundamentals, core value creation strategy, as well as the long-term outlook for its industry as a whole.
