Canopy Growth Corp.'s stock (WEED.T) fell about 7% in premarket trading on Wednesday on volume of two million shares, as investors continued to focus on the cannabis stock.

In regular trading on Tuesday, Canopy Growth stock fell nearly 21% after big runups in recent sessions after the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency said on Aug. 30 it would review the Schedule I classification of cannabis. Even with the loss, Canopy Growth stock is still up about 67% in the past five days.
