Cannabis Store Is Set to Open

Few, if any, industries have investors more excited right now than cannabis. Depending on your preferred source, the global weed industry could see sales grow from $12.2 billion in 2018 to perhaps $50 billion to $75 billion annually in roughly a decade's time.

But at the heart of that growth is the United States. In Bank of America analyst Christopher Carey's utopian model, whereby the marijuana industry reaches $166 billion in yearly sales, the United States is responsible for generating 34% of this annual revenue. The U.S. is, for all intents and purposes, the crown jewel of the cannabis movement, which is what makes U.S. pot stocks such a potentially hot commodity.
