Are These The Top Marijuana Stocks To Buy After The Georgia Runoff Elections?

Marijuana stocks are on the rise as Democrats claimed control of both houses of Congress.

Are These The Best Marijuana Stocks To Buy Ahead Of A Biden / Harris Administration?

Marijuana stocks have been in the news in the last few months, for good reasons. First, Joe Biden won the presidential election in November, with Democrats backing marijuana legalization. More importantly, today the Democrats have finally wrestled the U.S. Senate back from the Republicans. The federal marijuana reform outlook is now at its brightest. Until now, efforts at marijuana reform in Congress, such as ending the federal prohibition on the plant have gone nowhere in a Republican-controlled Senate.

2021 is certainly shaping up to be a great year for top marijuana stocks. Late last year, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the MORE Act, which would decriminalize marijuana nationally by removing cannabis from the Schedule I controlled substance list. The list includes drugs like methamphetamine and heroin that have a high potential for abuse and no therapeutic value. Of course, the bill is a long way from passage. With a newly seated Congress, the MORE Act would need to be reintroduced and passed again in the House.

Will Marijuana Stocks Reach An All-Time High In 2021?

We have already seen marijuana stocks like Innovative Industrial Properties (IIPR Stock Report) and Curaleaf Holdings (CURLF Stock Report) double in valuations in the last year itself. Could similar prospects lie ahead for these top marijuana stocks? Marijuana reform is certainly headed in the right direction. Impressively, two-thirds of Americans now support legalizing the drug according to a survey by Pew Research Center. With so many exciting things surrounding the marijuana industry, are these the top marijuana stocks to buy in the stock market today?

Aurora has over 100 patents and patent applications in extraction & production systems, medical & recreational products, and plant variety protection.

CEO Miguel Martin was optimistic about improving cash flow generation. Last month, Aurora announced that it has made operational & balance sheet improvements.
