This Is How Marijuana Stocks Can Benefit From New Reform Measures

The big focus for marijuana stocks and the cannabis industry is reform. Right now there is a major uproar about the recent announcement from the DEA about rescheduling cannabis. The DEA has agreed that they will reschedule cannabis to a class 3. Now at first, this came as a shock as this has been a hard-fought battle. At this time it also created a rise in trading for most marijuana stocks.

But as people begin to take a closer look at what this means is it a win? So to some degree, yes bringing cannabis down from a Schedule 1 substance to a Class 3 is huge. However, as a possible class 3 substance, it would put cannabis in the bracket where big pharma controls it. A better explanation is that substances within the Schedule III classification have a lower risk for potential abuse than Schedule I or II. Drugs within this classification are typically considered safe if used under medical supervision.

They can typically be found at pharmacies if a patient has a prescription, but they are not available over the counter. This is where it makes it tough for current and future cannabis operators. Nevertheless, it also creates a situation that leads more people to invest and find the best marijuana stocks to buy. If cannabis does become class 3 some may feel safer to invest knowing that marijuana is less of a threat to the federal government. Below are some marijuana stocks to watch if this reform measure gets passed.
