The marijuana story is growing like a weed.
Not only do 61% of Americans now support legalization, states are moving to legalize it with hopes for significant new revenue stream.
Canada will legalize its use in October 2018.
The Canadian Senate overwhelmingly passed Bill C-45, also known as the Cannabis Act, which legalized the use of recreational marijuana. The law goes into effect on October 17, 2018.
Corporate America has woken up to the opportunity, too.
In fact, Constellation Brands just increased its stake in Canopy Growth (CGC) by $4 billion.
In short, there are plenty of reasons to get bullish on the sector.
That being the case, here are the top three pot stocks to buy and hold for the next decade.
OrganiGram Holdings (OGRMF)
OGRMF produces and sells medical marijuana in Canada. As Canada moves to legalize marijuana use on the federal level, the company is ramping up production to capitalize on new market opportunities as an existing licensed producer. An active expansion includes a 15,000 sq. ft. extract processing facility that could prove quite useful, as the market begins to explode.

Canopy Growth (CGC)
