Gambling on Pot Stocks

It's somewhat alarming when a friend, one who has never had a passing thought about the stock market, asks me to show her how to buy "pot stocks." I saw dollar signs glowing like neon lights in her pupils. Apparently, my friend's co-worker was boasting to everyone in the office that her profits on a Cannabis stock she recently bought would end up paying for her kids to go to college. (I thought to myself, "Is she high?")
