For those who’ve been with me through the years, you’re well aware of my skepticism towards cannabis stocks. The potential is massive, yet the real momentum hinges on the U.S. government’s stance on legalization. Despite the initial excitement years back, the sector has struggled to maintain its gains without broader legislative support.

However, an interesting twist emerged from Germany, sparking renewed interest in this volatile sector. News broke that Germany plans to legalize cannabis, injecting a dose of optimism into the market. Canopy Growth (CGC), specifically, caught my eye as it surged from $4.69 to $6.67 in response. Though it has retraced slightly, this movement is noteworthy.

Looking ahead, I’m keen to observe how CGC performs next week. The stock faces resistance around the $8.27 mark, offering a substantial upside from its current position. This development could be a critical test for the stock – can it sustain its gains, or is this another fleeting spike?

The implications extend beyond Germany. Imagine the seismic shift if the U.S. were to follow suit and legalize cannabis nationwide. The impact on stocks like CGC could be monumental.

So, as we wrap up this week, let’s keep a close eye on the cannabis sector. It’s a space filled with potential, yet fraught with uncertainty, and the unfolding developments in Germany could be the catalyst it needs.

Have a fantastic week, and I’ll catch up with you on Monday to see where this intriguing saga takes us next!
