Wall Street’s first cannabis analyst names her top US marijuana stocks

HOLYOKE, MA - JANUARY 31: Jonell Santiago works at Green Thumb Industries cultivation center in Holyoke, MA on Jan. 31, 2019. Green Thumb Industries, a Chicago-based cannabis company, invested $10 million to create a cultivation center in a former Holyoke mill building.
