Given that seemingly ALL of the stocks dropped creates a question of why? And What do they al have in common? If it is the same group of investors owning most of the shares, that could be very interesting.

My guess, however, is that the number of folks who are presently interested in owning cannabis business stocks is a bit limited, and quite a bit less than a huge multitude. And like a lot of things, once the need is satisfied the demand drops. With the reduced demand the bid-up prices are re-adjusting to a prior and more sensible level.

Thus now is the time to hold the stocks patiently and wait for those dividend payments to arrive. It is not a disaster, it is an adjustment.
