    Our rapidly growing list includes a wide variety of dynamic companies, including providers of payment processing solutions, branded edibles and delivery services as well as equipment manufacturers, growers, real estate owners and dispensaries.

    We are offering an annual subscription for just $595 for the first year, a savings of 40% . This is available for only a limited time.

    While the stocks are still up in 2014, most investors have lost money after entering the market after the rally began. With prices substantially below the peak levels from earlier this year, marijuana stocks might have some appeal.
