By disclosing our research through this series, we offer our shareholders an inside track as to the events evolving within the cannabis industry. On August 29, 2018, “Getting into the Game,” the $4 billion investment by Constellations Brands into Canopy Growth, and November 30, 2018, “Scotts Miracle Grow – not a stock to our own unless – Spinoff,” featured how large corporation are addressing entrance into the cannabis industry.
