What got you talking yesterday

ASX cannabis small caps have not escaped the share market crash. But at an operational level some may benefit from COVID-19.

For instance, some cannabis products may be easier to access with New South Wales, Victoria and (since this article was first published) South Australia relaxing prescription laws for pharmaceuticals.

Also popular yesterday was news of the latest WA nickel explorer to make a big hit – St George Mining (ASX:SGQ), which was the third in less than two weeks.
