And in 2020, that figure could increase to $10.7 billion, or around 47% of the overall market, ArcView found.

Collecting Medical Marijuana Profits the Right Way
When searching for the best medical marijuana stocks, it's important to look for companies that either already have approved drugs and treatments, or are otherwise conducting late-stage clinical research.
For the three medical marijuana stocks we've found today, we've made sure that their companies already have solid pipelines, with marijuana drugs that are already on the market or at least approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
What's more, two of these companies have diversified pipelines. This means even if their companies' marijuana efforts don't catch on, you don't have to worry about the stocks tanking. They have other successful non-marijuana drugs to fall back on.
These stocks are so promising, almost all the analysts that track them have given them "Buy" or "Overweight" ratings, with target prices representing growth of 20% or higher.
One last thing to note: These medical marijuana stocks and the companies focus on medical conditions we know cannabis-based medication can treat. Most notably, for pain, nausea, and appetite-enhancing applications.
Unlike other medical marijuana companies that target more obscure treatment areas (i.e., using cannabis to treat cancer), our three companies have drugs that are much more likely to pass clinical trials (or already have).
