There are lists with as many as 200 marijuana stocks to watch out there, but we're more selective at Money Morning with our picks.
And to find the biggest and best profit opportunities, you have to talk with experts at the forefront of the cannabis industry.
That's why I tapped into my network of exclusive contacts and reached out to a marijuana insider about a growing market: marijuana impairment-testing technology.
Think of it like breathalyzers for marijuana.
There's a huge need for accurately judging if a driver is impaired from marijuana use or edible consumption, as eight states and the District of Columbia have legalized recreational use.

And this cannabis expert confirmed to us that this is a company he's watching closely…
