Marijuana stocks can be highly volatile. It’s true that the cannabis sector is currently going through a bit of churn after growing at a breakneck pace for some time. But many companies are still doing significant deals to further enhance their profile in the industry. Also, keep in mind that many of these companies are considered penny stocks, currently. Though the industry itself has growing to do, the market for marijuana stocks may still be in its adolescence as well.
