Legislation to legalize marijuana may still be weeks away, but investors are now permitted to buy Canopy Growth WEED.

Ottawa-area medical marijuana producer Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX:WEED) has officially changed its stock market ticker to WEED.

The company recently closed its deal to acquire fellow pot producer Mettrum Health Corp.
