Already Baked Into the Bowl

With the House passing the cannabis-banking bill, or the "SAFE Banking Act," on Wednesday, hope for pot stocks to regain their old form seemed realistic.

However, as one of our Members noted this morning, we have the likes of ACB APHA CGC CRON TLRY acting sluggishly, at best.

The reason being: I do not trust this market at the moment to sustain upside moves, be it a breakout play or a dip-buy. I expect that to change when the quarter/month finally conclude early next week. But until then this sort of action is likely to stay.
