Forget Cheech, Chong and Willie: There’s only one brand name that moves markets in mercantilizing marijuana.

Canopy Growth Corp. jumped to a record high, and other Canadian cannabis growers gained, after unveiling a line of marijuana products for the domestic market in a partnership with rapper Snoop Dogg….
