Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC – June 1,  2016 – Investorideas.com, a global news source and investor resource covering actively traded sectors  releases its updated Marijuana and Hemp Stocks Directory for investors following the sector.

According to ArcView Market Research, a leading marijuana industry investment and research firm, legal cannabis sales increased 17%, to $5.4 billion, in 2015 and may jump to 25% in 2016 to an estimated $6.7 billion U.S. sales.

The market opportunity is now global as new States and new countries open the doors for legalized medical marijuana use.

Looking at the Canadian Market alone, Mackieresearch.com says, “We have forecast the peak Canadian marijuana market size to be over C$2.5B in 2020, assuming full legalization down the road (over C$1.1B in 2020 without full legalization) - some of these sales are being cannibalized to the black market via dispensaries.”
