Numerous announcements came from the marijuana industry on April 20, 2017, which is known as the official "pot holiday."
And some of the announcements could mean big things for select marijuana stocks.
That's why today, we want to make sure our readers are all caught up on the latest pot stock news and cannabis companies to watch.
The first marijuana stock on our watch list today is MassRoots Inc. (OTCMKTS: MSRT).
As members of our free Profit Alerts service know, we've been watching MSRT since November 2016. MassRoots is a social networking company that allows marijuana enthusiasts to connect.
As of March 20, MSRT has more than 1 million registered users, according to a company press release.
And we're continuing to watch this marijuana stock because of a new partnership with Whoopi Goldberg and Maya Elisabeth (an award-winning edibles maker). The duo's company, Whoopi and Maya, was launched in 2016, according to MarijuanaStocks.com.

The safety standard now approves the Scorpion line of indoor grow lights for retail sale across North America.
