Presently, 29 U.S. states and Washington, D.C., have legalized medical marijuana and D.C. and eight other states have gone a step further and legalized recreational marijuana. Our neighbor to the north, Canada, has long rooted medicinal marijuana market and is on course to legalize recreational marijuana this July.

Last year, $7.3 billion was generated from marijuana sales in North America alone and it is forecast to grow to $9.7 billion in 2017. With Canada’s recreational legalization approaching and more U.S states loosening their marijuana restrictions, the market is only going to get hotter and hotter. With that being said, here are a few marijuana stocks that lit up the market during 2017.
