Tilray dethrones Canopy Growth as the most valuable marijuana stock

Peter Thiel’s pot company is now worth more than Twitter

Shares in marijuana company Tilray Inc. went on a wild ride - surging by more than 90 per cent then briefly dropping into negative territory and rebounding - one day after the licensed producer said it got approval to export medical cannabis from Canada to the US for a clinical trial. Trading was halted several times because of that volatility. He said the investors buying these stocks at their current prices are already betting on enormous successes, but even if legal marijuana takes off, some of the companies will fail. Aurora stock, which is listed in Canada, surged.

Canopy Growth has more than doubled in value this year, and Cronos Group has jumped 72 per cent. GW Pharmaceuticals, which recently received government approval for a cannabis-derived drug used to treat seizures, is up 29 per cent. The company also got a boost this week when the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration gave it the green light to import medical marijuana for a clinical trial in California. Shares were US$35.90 when trading closed August 20.

Recreational marijuana will become legal across Canada on October 17, and consumable forms of the drug will be legal in 2019.

Michael B. Jordan will star in a Rainbow Six movie
The Without Remorse movie is coming first, as it is an origin story for the character, with the Rainbow Six film landing later. Clark was largely used as a supporting character to Jack Ryan , until he was given his own adventure in " Without Remorse ".

Tilray's Kennedy on Tuesday told CNBC's Jim Cramer that there's a clear global growth opportunity for medical cannabis and he expects to see another country follow in Canada's footsteps by legalizing marijuana in the next year.

Growe noted that governments considering marijuana legalization or similar policies are likely to move very slowly.

According to newest insights from KAYAK, one of the worlds largest flight aggregator and travel metasearch engine, these are the top trending destinations among Canadian travellers in 2018, and the statuses and penalties for cannabis use for each of them. Shares of its stock have crashed 58% since topping out at $300 on Wednesday afternoon.
