US vs. Canada: Cannabis Equity Showdown
In the competitive cannabis market, Canada's decision to legalize marijuana in October 2018 gave its upstart companies the first-mover advantage. South of the border, a growing list of states are legalizing cannabis and scaling up the U.S. marijuana industry. What happens if the U.S. federally legalizes cannabis? Can Canada maintain its marijuana momentum? Which country is poised to become the biggest producer of cannabis? Get the answers to these questions and more from Steve Hawkins, president and CEO of Horizons ETFs and creator of the world's first marijuana ETF - HMMJ. Steve will be joined by John Zamparo, equity research analyst at CIBC Capital Market's Equity, focused on the cannabis sector. It's the rumble in the jungle, marijuana edition.
