Marijuana Sector Positioned to Move Higher as FDA Reviews Drug's Status


Top gainers included Tauriga Sciences Inc. (TAUG), which jumped more than 60% after saying that it remains on track with its Honeywood acquisition to commercial products in the medicinal cannabis sector, and Vape Holdings Inc. (VAPE), which jumped more than 40% after reporting results from the soft launch of its e-commerce website last week. The largest decliners included Easton Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTC:EAPH), which fell nearly 20% last week.

Cannabis regulatory initiatives and news were mixed last week. While the United Nations warned about a rise in cannabis-related medical cases following legalization efforts, the U.S. FDA indicated that it would reconsider marijuana's status as a Schedule I Controlled Substance. Legalization efforts have also gained ground in many U.S. states, with Oregon and Alaska becoming two battlegrounds for recreational legalization efforts over the coming year.
