Hot Medical Stocks To Own For 2022

A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that marijuana legalization laws are not associated with increased use amongst high school students.

“Consistent with estimates from prior studies, there was little evidence that [recreational marijuana laws] or [medical marijuana laws] encourage youth marijuana use,” reads the paper.

The study builds upon a previous paper that used data from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) for the period 1993-2017, which found that marijuana adoption was associated with an 8% decrease in the odds of marijuana use among high school students. 

This earlier study used pre-legalization and post-legalization data from only 7 states and pre– and post–recreational sales data from only 3 states. The new study included data from up to 2019, encompassing 10 legal adult-use states.

With these additional data, the study found that “medical marijuana law adoption was associated with a 6% decrease in the odds of current marijuana use and a 7% decrease in the odds of frequent marijuana use.”

When it comes to recreational use, the news study found that prior to legalization, there was no association with marijuana use in the states analyzed. After 2 or more years, recreational marijuana law adoption was associated with a decrease in marijuana use.

    Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) spent tens of billions of dollars gobbling up drillable land during the last decade’s shale leasing boom. A result of that buying boom is that the company tacked on a significant amount of debt to its balance sheet, which weighed it down as commodity prices plunged. That forced the company to sell off some of its drillable land to stay afloat.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    There’s also the more than $600 million deal between iAnthus Capital Holdings (NASDAQOTH:ITHUF) and MPX Bioceutical, which recently closed. Following closure, iAnthus Capital now has a presence in 11 U.S. states, with 19 open dispensaries. However, the combined retail dispensary license count is 63, meaning iAnthus has a path to significant storefront growth, and a planned tripling in its cultivation capacity, too.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    For instance, iAnthus Capital Holding (NASDAQOTH:ITHUF) recently completed the largest U.S. deal to date by purchasing MPX Bioceutical for around $600 million. (This deal will be eclipsed by MedMen’s purchase of PharmaCann, once that deal closes.) Though it’s unclear what sort of premium iAnthus paid for MPX Bioceutical as of yet, a quick glance at iAnthus Capital’s balance sheet shows that 55% of its total assets are currently tied up in goodwill. Since the dispensary space will presumably have plenty of competition, it’s unclear if iAnthus (or other acquisition-hungry dispensaries) will be able to recoup the premium it’s paid to buy other businesses. This leaves the door open for hefty future writedowns.
