Fortunes were made and lost over the course of two days in September on the latest investment mania: marijuana stocks. Fans of Canadian producer Tilray, perhaps sampling the merchandise, sent the stock soaring on Sept. 19, nearly doubling overnight. But alas, the buzz inevitably wears off, and the stock came down from its high. Over the course of the week, Tilray's stock price soared from $117 to $300 and crashed back to $123 by Friday.
