5 Minute Read – The “Green Rush”: Market exposure to the growing cannabis industry
V.E is constantly monitoring changes that impact the world of investing. Our analysts have put together a short briefing intended to keep you informed on the the latest in ESG.
In December 2020, the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs reclassified cannabis out of the most dangerous category of drugs, thus recognising its medicinal potential. In the same month, the United States House of Representatives voted to effectively legalise recreational cannabis at the federal level.
This legislative and regulatory evolution has led to an increase of investment in the cannabis sector. In our newest #5MinuteRead – The “Green Rush”: Market exposure to the growing cannabis industry, Vigeo Eiris (V.E) summarises why cannabis production and use remain controversial and assesses how investors may be exposed to reputational risks.
