    I listened to a Podcast and it has prompted me to follow your newsletter! Thank you. Great information.
    You scared me with your prediction that All Dispensaries would close immediately if Cannabis is legalized nationwide!
    So All the public ally traded companies I.e. Acreage , Trulieve, Cresco would be terrible investment? Am I understanding this correctly? .
