On Jan. 1, 2018, the US&s;s largest and most populated state &a;mdash; California &a;mdash; oversaw the legalization of&a;nbsp;recreational marijuana. Though not the first state to do this, California&s;s action is a milestone for the cannabis industry, and for American drug legislation in general.&a;nbsp;Almost as, if not equally, important is the fact that&a;nbsp;marijuana&s;s recreational legality comes with major taxes: a 15% statewide tax on all&a;nbsp;recreational and medical cannabis products, and additional local taxes and fees.

Rejoice, my friend – almost everyone who wants a job has one today!   This is good news, right?   Not for stock investors. It's actually terrible news for stocks… if you believe history repeats.   Let me explain…   The unemployment rate just hit a 17-year low of 4.1%. With the exception of the year 2000, that's actually the lowest unemployment rate in nearly 50 years.   But you remember what happened in 2000. We suffered through the greatest stock market bust of our lifetimes…   The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 56% in the 18-month period following the best unemployment number of my lifetime – 3.8% on April 30, 2000.   "But that was the tech bust, Steve," you might be thinking. And you're right. Plenty of factors led to the tech bust… And we've rarely seen anything so extreme. So was that an isolated incident?
