Investing in the Marijuana Business and Fraud

Investing in the Business of Marijuana and the Dangers of Fraud

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that several unscrupulous financiers are setting up fake stock scams that promise good returns on the business of medical marijuana and the legalization of marijuana.  In states that have set up regulations to legally sell marijuana either medical marijuana or for recreational purposes there has certainly been a boon to the local economies.  There are strong arguments, even in Maryland and Baltimore, to legalize pot and tax it.  I have seen the economic benefits of legalization in Denver, Colorado, where empty store fronts have been turned into shops and advertising money is flowing in promoting the sale of marijuana in newspaper ads and billboards.  But investors be warned.  If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.  The Law Office of David D.
