Even George Soros Couldn't Resist This Speculation

Tom Beck, founder of Portfolio Wealth Global, delves into the investment potential of cannabis in the U.S.

This has got to be the ultimate contrarian scenario.

George Soros has spent at least USD$80M in the quest of legalizing cannabis.

There's a gigantic opportunity to create serious wealth with marijuana investments.

Through his Foundation to Promote an Open Society, he has funneled donations to the Drug Policy Alliance. He also donates annually to the American Civil Liberties Union, an organization that funds marijuana legalization efforts, and he gives to the Marijuana Policy Project, which supports state ballot measures.

Moreover, Soros was instrumental in Uruguay becoming the first country to legalize cultivation, sale, and consumption of marijuana. He sits on the board of the Drug Policy Alliance, the world's most powerful organization regarding the legalization of marijuana.

I personally don't like George Soros. He has plenty of shady parts to his character, and I bet that over the decades, some of the allegations against him might turn out to be true, but in the case of legalizing weed, it's a no-brainer for me.

If you are an unbiased investor with the capability of researching facts, you'll come to the same realization as me and agree with my 6-figure allocation towards this sector.

U.S. Marijuana Market Projections

I want you to see why Portfolio Wealth Global isn't playing around with this.

This industry will grow 300% in less than a decade, and the reason should be clear to you: diversity and existing demand.

1. Diversity: This simply means that there are more and more products and services every year because of state legalization.

Consumers of both recreational and medicinal cannabis are seeing the quality and amount of offerings become much more varied, and this is boosting sales.

2. Existing Demand: This has to be the most obvious reason why billionaires like Soros are pushing and lobbying for weed to become legalized. It's the same reason Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal, has gotten involved, and why Warren Buffett owns warehousing companies. The market for weed is already enormous—it's simply illegal in most places. But imagine all that dollar volume now transferring to the hands of responsible management teams and you'll have an idea of the seriousness of this moment.

States that have legalized marijuana

The next important milestone for this industry—and the one that will probably push the federal legalization into sixth gear—is the California market.

It's huge, and I mean it's bigger than the Canadian market, combined with Washington State, Colorado and Nevada.

It's the queen of weed consumption, and it's becoming fully legalized on January 1, 2018.

Facts in California

Now, if you're like me, you were prejudiced towards the industry, but I've literally spent five months visiting with CEOs, learning the science behind CBD and THC, and truly getting a grip on where this is headed.

At this point, I can tell you that Portfolio Wealth Global will be publishing specific ideas that will be game-changers for our portfolios.

Mark my words on this one: cannabis legalization is the next millionaire-creating sector.
