It's not a surprise, but in the midst of the pandemic, and the possibility of Democratic win in the election, guns and marijuana stocks are on the rise. In fact, both have been in high demand since the start of the pandemic. Legal marijuana use has been growing anyway, and Heather Fazio, Director of Texans for responsible marijuana policy says "regardless of what happens on election day, advocates are going to continue working at the federal and state level to repeal prohibition. It's a policy that has failed, and we've seen republicans and democrats coming together on this issue". Kamala Harris even said during the vice-presidential debate that she is now in favor of decriminalizing marijuana. As Fazio pointed out to KTRH, Harris has not said that in the past, so we shall see.
As for guns, fears of more civil unrest, post election violence, and the Democrats stance on stricter gun laws, gun sales have been at an all time high! (no pun intended). Michael Hammond with Gun Owners Of America tells KTRH that Tuesday will quote "be a tipping point for our nation", adding that Joe Biden will certainly look to ban semi-automatic weapons, while a re-elected President Trump will protect our constitutional rights.
