10 Top Marijuana Stocks to Watch Today

top marijuana stocks to watch todayWe've brought readers a list of the top marijuana stocks to watch today, because the marijuana market is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world.

In 2016, marijuana sales in the United States topped $6.7 billion. But by 2020, that number is expected to soar nearly 200% to $20 billion.

Keep in mind, marijuana investing is still speculative. And these are not stocks we specifically recommend. However, it's a great idea for investors to keep informed about marijuana companies given the potential future growth in the industry.

Marijuana is becoming legal in more and more states, and Canada will vote on full legalization this spring.

True, there is no federal law legalizing weed throughout the United States. But more and more states are going in the direction of full legalization.

Of course, when sales rise, profits and stock prices often follow.

All that leads to our list of top marijuana stocks to watch today.
