Marijuana stocks have captured the public imagination, but should they capture investors' hard-earned dollars?

The pot stock industry has no shortage of operators and seemingly no shortage of drama.

One of them is currently on a trading hold, and the other just started trading again. Watch and find out the source of these companies' problems and the best way for investors to approach the burgeoning marijuana industry.
