Sitting down with my financial guy to ask about investing in marijuana stocks could be a very interesting conversation.

The fact is, according to Viridian Capitol Advisers, the Cannabis Stock Index gained 236% in 2016, and is climbing steadily in 2017. And depending on your thought process regarding legal weed, says that legal cannabis is creating a chance to make some serious cash, but you have to know what you're doing.

The latest news regarding the legalization of marijuana in Connecticut comes from CBS New York reporting that CT Senator, Martin Looney, has proposed legislation to legalize weed in Connecticut. Looney told the Wall Street Journal that legal sales of marijuana could generate $50 million in revenue for the state.

Marijuana has been legalized for all uses in Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska. Massachusetts has passed the law for the use of recreational marijuana, but shops have not opened yet. This video shows what it's like when you walk into a legal marijuana dispensary:

Do you think Trump should try and obtain a medical marijuana card?
