Marijuana market to reach $50 billion

Not one to ever miss out on a growth opportunity, Wall Street is increasingly advising clients to invest in the booming legalized marijuana market. Last month, JPMorgan told investors to buy fertilizer maker Scotts Miracle-Gro because of it. Now comes a 110-page opus from the research team at investment bank Cowen called "The Cannabis Compendium: Cross-Sector Views on a Budding Industry" which contains a list of the firm's favorite stock ideas from across the many industries that could stand to benefit from increased legal pot use and production.
