Cannabis stocks broadly (measured by the Solactive North American Medical Marijuana Index) fell more than 3% in today's trading session. That said, the majority of today's losses in the index are attributable to Zynerba in yesterday's session (due to the bank holiday in Canada, the index wasn't calculated yesterday even though U.S. markets were open).
