Ha! It has been eye-opening learning about the cannabis industry. Still a ton of froth and hype, but with Canada on the cusp of legalization I think a Foolish, business-focused, long-term approach can finally be applied. We'll quickly know which companies are walking the walk vs. just talking the talk about how great they'll be.

In Marijuana Mavericks we're looking for companies with some sort of differentiated model/strategy, experienced/invested leadership, and healthy balance sheets. It's still a riskier category -- considering track records for these early cannabis companies are minimal at best -- but I'm looking forward to applying a VC approach and investing in a basket of some of the promising early leaders.

Really excited with what we've put together in Marijuana Mavericks. Will be fascinating to watch this category unfold over the next year and beyond!
