JOSH LIPTON: Moving on. Cannabis stocks here are getting a boost after the Florida Supreme Court approves a ballot measure to vote on recreational marijuana. So the news here Florida Supreme Court says OK. They ruled recreational.


Weed proposals can go into the November ballot. We did see moves higher. Different names, Aurora, Kronos. The amplify alternative ETF.

Favorable ruling had been expected, Julie. But I think some investors clearly just appreciate the official word and the potential obviously revenue impact from the industry.

JULIE HYMAN: Yeah, and I got an email from the folks over at Trulieve which is one of the companies that operates I believe medically there. It has 130 dispensaries in the state. I have to say I was just on vacation in Florida.

There are a lot of dispensaries there. And I guess they're all medical dispensaries. But maybe some of them will be switching over or opening new ones.

According to Trulieve, the Florida Medical market makes up 20% of the entire patient count of the United States, which makes sense given the demographics in Florida here. And Trulieve, again, is predicting it will be a $6 billion market in Florida alone if this does get passed.

JOSH LIPTON: That's a lot of weed.

JULIE HYMAN: It's a lot of weed.
