What could be better than buying some stock, kicking back, and getting "a little something extra" every quarter from management after a good run?
Ordinarily, cash dividends are great. They can be the main reason to even buy shares.
But with the notable exception of the "marijuana REIT," Innovative Industrial Properties, the cannabis industry is a little different.
In cannabis right now, a dividend could conceivably be a red flag.
When you own part of a cannabis company, you own a piece of an industry that's set to grow faster than any other industry has for generations.
But that claim doesn't come with a cash payout… yet.
