Medical cannabis financier Redfund Capital Corp (CSE:LOAN) said Friday that legalization of marijuana in three additional US states is a milestone for the industry and its clients.

In morning trading in Canada, Redfund shares were up 6% to C$0.53, while its US-listed stock was flat at US$0.38 per share on the OTC Markets.
