Right now marijuana stocks are seeing yet another drop in trading. This current pullback is all based on the hold-up with federal cannabis reform. Many people who work in the cannabis industry have been waiting for the end of cannabis prohibition. With the cannabis prohibition coming to end it would allow for more opportunities to take place. For example, due to cannabis being federally illegal some ventures aren’t possible for that reason. Nevertheless, on a state level, the cannabis industry is still thriving.

Yet the fight for federal cannabis reform is creating an issue for the bulk of marijuana stocks. Even though this pullback is giving more people a chance to find top marijuana stocks to buy. For the last few weeks, the cannabis sector was on a steady path toward recovering. Unfortunately, the priority is ending cannabis prohibition which is the biggest legal hurdle to get passed. Any news that states a hold-up or lack in progress has historically pushed cannabis stocks down.

At least for most of them. Much of the issues that come from passing federal reform are based on which group of politicians will be the one to do it. For instance, you have Chuck Schumer who is working on a reform bill. As well you also have other members of Congress working on the MORE Act. And recently the Republicans have now jumped on board with a bill of their own.

With all these legislators and politics it’s creating confusion among the bunch. As a result of trying to enact this policy change cannabis stocks suffer the consequence. Now even though right now the sector is taking a hit this is not all bad news. On the brighter side what was once a one-sided fight for reform is now being pushed with more bipartisan support. With both Democrats and Republicans taking action to pass federal reform it’s only a matter of time before it’s done. Until such time the cannabis stocks below could be the ones to hold once things start to move up.

Wholesale revenue, excluding Pennsylvania and Ohio, declined by 5.0 percent to $1.8 million.

The cause was driven by the loss of biomass due to atypical weather in the Arizona market. From this, it resulted in a sales decline during the quarter. As well the company’s gross reached $5.1 million, or 38.3 percent of revenue. These figures are compared to the gross profit of $5.0 million or 39.8 percent of revenue in Q3 last year.

“Our third quarter results were negatively impacted by unseasonal weather in the State of Arizona, where monsoonal rains wiped out a substantial portion of our outdoor crop at Elephant Head Farm,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Kyle Kingsley, M.D.
