The mixed fourth-quarter results of Cronos Group Inc (NASDAQ:CRON) (TSE:CRON) led cannabis news, with shares of the company down 1.4% at US$20.24 in New York and down 1.1% at C$27.06 in Toronto. 

The Canadian cannabis producer reported 4Q revenue of US$5.6 million, significantly higher than the US$1.6 million a year earlier. But the company still had a net loss of US$11.6 million, or US$0.06 per share, a swing from a profit of a penny per share in the year-ago quarter.
