It seems that after a hard fight for GameStop stocks and the RobinHood scandal, investors from Reddit have decided to bet on something far more relaxing. American cannabis companies experienced a major surge and then a dramatic drop over the week when Reddit investors shifted their focus to the market. According to CNBC, users on the site were discussing the pending merger between Tilray and Aphria – two Canadian companies involved in the production of medicinal cannabis – as well as the possible decriminalization of marijuana under Biden’s administration. As a result, Tilray shares spiked drastically, gaining around 51 percent, and Aurora Cannabis – a licensed cannabis producer, also Canadian – saw a 20 percent raise. However, on Thursday, the pot dropped significantly: shares of Tilray fell 49.7 percent, Aphria lost around 36 percent and Aurora Cannabis fell some 23.5 percent. Canopy Growth shares declined by 22 percent.
