Investing.com – Cannabis stocks rose Friday on reports Republican Rep. Nancy Mace from South Carolina has floated a bill that seeks to legalize weed.
Sundial Growers (NASDAQ: SNDL ) was the biggest gainer, rising 17%. The company’s up to C$100 million (around $79 million) share repurchase plan added momentum to the stock.
Sundial's share repurchase expires November 19, 2022. Notwithstanding the repurchase amount, Sundial said it may only purchase a maximum of 102.8 million shares, representing around 5% of the outstanding equity.
Weed stocks have been on a tear since Marijuana Moment reported that Mace is proposing to amend the Controlled Substances Act.
The bill favors scrapping cannabis from Schedule I of the act to legalize it and tax cannabis at the federal level in the U.S.
