Due to restrictive federal banking regulations, cannabis dispensaries are known to operate with large amounts of cash.
Copious amounts of cash have attracted criminal activity to the industry.
For example, in 2016 a security guard at a Colorado dispensary was killed.
In late summer 2017, a cannabis dispensary in San Fransisco was robbed of $600,000 in cannabis products.
Police say these kind of robberies are becoming more common.
If you poke around on the Internet, you will find hundreds of stories about criminals targeting cannabis dispensaries for cash and product.

Nine months later, shares of Medreleaf (LEAF) are up 158% - even after a recent pullback. Continue reading "Record Canadian Cannabis IPO In 11 Days"
