All these stocks are trading with heavy volume as SNDL and ACB both fight with each other to gain the top spot.

“I would say this was one of the best-case scenarios for cannabis investors. A pure blue wave would be the ‘best case’ scenario but I guess we will find out soon enough when looking at the Senate.”
It is expected that under Biden rule and RepublicanSenate, banking reforms will be made in early 2021 and will be added to the COVID-19 relief package.
A recent legalization poll conducted for marijuana across five states has come up with expected results, though these results are yet to be determined by their relative states.

South Dakota also approved the legalization for both medical use and recreational purposes, becoming the first state to approve both at the same time.
Now, it is upon the Senate and Federal government to make amendment in law for the legalization of cannabis use. The future seems promising with the state voting going in favor of cannabis legalization, which will instantly make the Cannabis based firms to drive potential customers.
