“I’m from Lithuania.”
A man told me this over dinner on Friday. We were dining at an exclusive steakhouse in Denver, Colorado.
“I came here because I’m interested in cannabis,” he said.
I told him I was there for the same reason. But I flew up from Tulum, Mexico.
Funny enough, the family sitting next to me made a similar journey. They were from Juárez, Mexico.
It was an eclectic bunch. And that was just the folks sitting at my table.
I also met an engineer from India and a venture capitalist from San Francisco while I was in town.
• We all came to Denver for the same reason…
We were invited to a private investor meeting where the focus was—you guessed it—cannabis.
We were there because the legal marijuana market is exploding.
Last year, the North American marijuana market grew 33%. That makes it one of the fastest-growing industries on the planet. And this boom has just begun.
By 2026, analysts expect the North American marijuana market to be worth $50 billion. That’s five times bigger than it is today.
We haven’t seen a consumer industry grow this rapidly since broadband internet in the early 2000s.
• These kinds of investing opportunities are extremely rare…
They only come along once every decade or so.
When they do present themselves, you must take advantage of them.
Sadly, most investors won’t. That’s because they know nothing about the marijuana market.
They don’t know what kind of marijuana business models work… and which are doomed to fail. They don’t know where, geographically, to invest. Worst of all, they can’t tell the difference between a world-class marijuana business and a scam.
That’s where I can help…
• I’ve been researching the marijuana market around the clock since last June…
But I haven’t just read other people’s research like most so-called marijuana experts. I’ve gone to the front lines of this boom.
Last year, I spent all of July in Vancouver, Canada. I lived in San Francisco for most of August. And I made Denver my “home” during September.
Living in these cities has given me an intimate understanding of the industry. It’s also helped me spot incredible opportunities in the space.
For example, one of the marijuana stocks I identified has handed Crisis Investing readers a 140% return since June. Another one is up 84% since July. And a third is up 290% since November.
These are the kinds of returns that investors dream about. And that’s exactly why I went back to Colorado last week.
• Denver is ground zero of the U.S. marijuana boom…
That’s because Colorado legalized medical marijuana way back in 2000. In 2012, they legalized marijuana outright, making it the first U.S. state to do so.
Colorado’s progressive stance on pot has given it a huge head start on the rest of the country. That’s why it’s home to some of the country’s top marijuana businesses.
Over the weekend, I got to see some of those companies up close.
• On Saturday, I toured Seed & Smith…
This is one of Denver’s top “vertically integrated” marijuana companies. It grows, processes, and sells its own marijuana… all in-house.
See for yourself. Here’s one of the company’s grow rooms:
Here’s some of the company’s product after it’s been harvested:
Finally, we have the finished product:
• You can see that Seed & Smith is doing serious business…
It has a state-of-the-art facility, a world-class product, and an award-winning packing process.
And it must have all these things to stay competitive.
That’s because massive profits are on the line. And unlike most billion-dollar industries, the marijuana market is still wide open. The Marlboros and Budweisers of the marijuana world don’t exist yet.
But they’re being born before our eyes. And early investors who back these projects will make fortunes.
Think of it as buying Apple in 1980 or Amazon in 1997.
That’s the kind of opportunity we’re talking about. But don’t worry.
• You don’t need to be plugged into the industry like I am to cash in on this boom…
Anyone can get rich off legal marijuana.
You just need to buy marijuana stocks. Many of these trade on U.S. exchanges. They’re as easy to buy as a share of McDonald’s.
Just remember that the industry’s still in its early days. Because of this, many of today’s marijuana stocks won’t be around a year or two from now.
So, do your homework before diving in. Analyze the company’s business model. Get to know their team. Do as much research as you can.
Investors who take these steps will set themselves up for huge returns in the coming years.

P.S. My colleague, Casey Report editor E.B. Tucker, recently recommended three cannabis companies set to thrive in the years ahead. And now is the time to bet on them… before it’s too late.
Our team just put the finishing touches on a brand-new video presentation that reveals more details about the coming boom… and what you need to do today to take advantage of it…
