Quick Week End's Glance At the Markets: Cannabis & Cryptocurrency




This week as been a little crazier than the norm..........

Cryptocurrencies continues to get beat up, hacked, regulated and slaloms the markets. But as I mentioned before, that's how the markets do! Let's take a summary of this week's Crypto, Cannabis & stock market happenings.



In the last year, altcoins have made their presence known in a most compelling manner. The world stood up and took notice indeed, even a topic of discussion at the 2018 Davos. But, now the crypto faithful are realizing that this platform comes with it's volatilities. 


There are a number of possible factors in this weeks pullback that includes what might become the worlds largest digital currency hack. Japan's reported $530 million or about 500 million NEMs may have been an inside job. As Coincheck suspends trading, withdrawals and deposits of most cryptocurrencies there pending further investigation. 


*UPDATE*: The company reports that the source of the hack has been located. And that they intend to refund most funds stolen.

How about the South Korean regulators that has now created a task force to oversee their exchanges. This could have enticed investors to abandon ship.

The crypto markets seems to have stabled themselves a bit. Still Bitcoin, down about 5% since last Friday's opening and we are thankful for that. Ripple, who had such a promising run, had a huge 24% slide this week. Even with it's technical connection to the Ethereum based blockchain technology ETH, dipped a little over 9% this week. With NEM taken the biggest punch at nearly 33%.

The Business Highs & Lows ~ U.S. Marijuana/Cannabis Industry PT:2




With so much information and such a huge investment opportunity in the medical/recreational marijuana industry. I had to add an additional segment to my last post. There are many pieces to expose as mainstream society, especially here in the USA, becomes a little less scrutinizing. That's not to say that there are no pitfalls. 

With different regulations and laws provided by the many states and countries. Navigating where and how to use or invest into this industry is more like playing a game of chess.




The global financial 
impact rest around $400 billion. While still in a relatively infant stage. The potential for incredible financial gains are there with one important obstacle. Current laws that vary from place to places!
And a federal law that strikes fear in every investor.

When we  look across the planet we find places like Canada, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Peru, Spain,  Switzerland & Uruguay are countries that allow it's citizens to consume, cultivate and even distribute in small personal quantities. 

As with the countries above, the laws vary. Where in many other countries it may be illegal yet, it is decriminalized or simply accepted as long as you are not involved in any other activity that is of a criminal nature. 

Of all places, North Korea allows it citizens to grow, consume and sell. California's recreational laws that takes effect this year, includes business that can not operate within 600 ft. of a school. Must have 24-hr. surveillance and close by 10pm. In Amsterdam, if you are 18 yrs. of age, social smoke cafés known as "Coffee shops" allows recreational use within it's facilities.

In Jamaica, the ganja, because of it's spiritual practices  amongst the Rastafarian, has it's own set of by-laws. And in Israel, they are considered the leader in world cannabis research for medical patient use.

As you can see, this is just a small portion of the countries around the world that view the plant in a less criminal manner.



However, though there are 46 U.S. states with some kind of legalization to use the THC plant. All the while, on the federal level, marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug, that puts it in the same classification as Heroin, LSD, Ecstasy & Quaaludes. That essential says.......that the government sees marijuana as a highly addictive drug having no medical benefits nor uses. 

So we can see where this could represent some legalities when it comes to operating a business. The agency does provide some guideline to prosecutors that so that these businesses as well as medical cannabis curriculum can follow, allowing some leeway for states to operate without prosecution. 

These guidelines include the prevention of distribution to minors, revenues from sales can not go into criminal activities, such as gangs or cartels. No violence associated with the cultivation or distribution. And guidelines that prevent the growing or possession on federal property or that would danger the environment.





Despite any and all negative branding on marijuana. The latest reports finds that 2018 expects to exceed all expectations to a tune of over $10 billion.  



It's reasonable to say, that the complete legalization for medical & recreational usage is really not that far behind.



We would hope that as the powers to be grapple the potential financial implications, finding a way to profit while politicians seat on their hands is another obstacle. 


My guess is, even the current administration is putting the numbers together.....and will come to their senses as these figures show substantial tax revenue increases, huge job developments in manufacturing, retail & agriculture. The healthcare industry could fare very well also.  Not to mention, the votes he could pull in. ( Bet that would get the ball rolling pretty fast!!!!)

Seeing as most major banks and credit card fear putting/backing any business could be interpret as money laundering under the current US laws.  Waiting for an eventual passing of laws that will legalize the plant. Is like burning money and trying to put it out with gasoline.




Is investing in the business stocks or finding ETF  surrounding this industry a way to get your piece of the pie? Perhaps companies that supply machinery and parts are a safe bet till our government get their act together. Until then,  my research continues........

The Green Rush: Cannabis ~ The Business Era of Recreational & Medical Marijuana / Week's End Markets



 Cannabis Training University


I have been wondering how I would introduce the conversation on cannabis, marijuana stocks as an investment opportunity. I guess a quick overview of the plants infamous background would be about as grand a start as any.........

A Brief History of Marijuana/Cannabis:


Photo by Esteban Lopez on Unsplash
Photo by Esteban Lopez on Unsplash

There's still a large misconception and it's short history of negative publicity surrounding "Grass, bud, weed, reefer, green, herb, 420, ganja, pot, chronic, dank, kush & blunts."

     
Which are just a few of terminologies used over the years. 



Yah or Nah on Legalization of Medical/Recreational Marijuana/Cannabis use?



Yet, long before Marijuana/Cannabis received such a adverse label......."Hemp" had a whether important part in Americas early development.

Starting around the mid 1500's , the Spanish introduced hemp to the new lands. This plant was a major commodity, grown with the likes of tobacco and consumed as a source of fiber. Hemp was even traded as currency, as well as made into paper and clothing. One could even be fined for not producing/growing the plant.

It was around the late 1800's, that hemp plant began to be replaced with cotton.

The stigma associated with marijuana for years stems from an ambitous politician name Harry Anslinger. Anslinger headed what was essentially the nation’s first drug czar, the Commissioner to the Department Bureau of Narcotics from 1930 to 1962.   Anslinger was clearly a racist and attempted to make big of his position in Department of Prohibition after the failed attempt at alcohol prohibition.

He had in fact, deemed the plant "Demon weed" in the 1930's.  By creating a fear in the publics eyes. He tied marijuana use to an infamous murder of that time. (Victor Licata). 

Excerpts from newspapers owned by one of Americas early media mogul William Hearst that helped fuel this negative campaign against marijuana usage.

“There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.”
“…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.”
“Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death.”
“Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”
“Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing”
“You smoke a joint and you’re likely to kill your brother.”
“Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind.”


I think, 2018 will now become a most definitive time in the history of the plant. 

There are now, 30 legal medical marijuana usage states & 8 recreational usage states. Each state having their own set of by-laws.

California was the first state to accept legalized medical marijuana in 1996. Not surprised, followed by.......


  • 1998: Alaska, Oregon, & Washington
  • 1999: Maine 
  • 2000: Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada
  •  2004: Montana, Vermont
  • 2006: Rhode Island
  • 2007: New Mexico
  • 2008: Michigan
  • 2010: Arizona, D.C., New Jersey
  • 2011: Delaware
  • 2012: Connecticut, Massachusetts
  • 2013: Illinois, New Hampshire
  • 2014: Maryland, Minnesota, New York
  • 2015: Louisiana
  • 2016: Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, North Dakota, Arkansas

Our neighbors up stairs, Canada, will be fully legalizing the usage on the 1st of July 2018.  They approved medical use back in 2017.








 


What does medical marijuana really do?


 Cannabis Training University
Though the FDA ~ The U.S. Food & Drug Administration has not yet approved many marijuana plants as medicine due to the lack of research. This is starting to change as more studies become readily available with promising results. 



With the recent introduction of bill H.R. 3391: The Medical Marijuana Research Act of 2017. This bill amends the federal law so that scientist can facilitate clinical studies involving the use of cannabis and cannabis-derived products


 Cannabidiol CBD Oil
Some of these growing study on it's effect on certain medical conditions includes:

  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • ALS
  • Chronic Pain
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Dystonia
  • Epilepsy
  • Fibromyalgia
  • GI Disorders
  • Gliomas/Cancer
  • Hepatitis C
  • HIV
  • Huntington's Disease
  • Hypertension
  • Incontinence
  • Migraine
  • MRSA
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Post-Traumatic Stress
  • Pruritus
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Tourette Syndrome


There are three approved man-made cannabinoid (organic chemical delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) ) medicines > Dronabinol (Marinol) & Nabilone (Cesamet) that treats nausea & vomiting from chemotherapy.  As well as a liquid form of Dronabinol called Syndros.

Even though man has been cultivating and consuming the potent tops of female cannabis plants since the beginning of known history. Scientists have found that ancient cultures cultivated marijuana for pharmaceutical and prophetic purposes.

Despite a long history ban on the use of the plant, that was first imposed by Congress under the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 and then later classifying the cannabis plant as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970.

Drugs like cocaine & methamphetamine that can still be consumed under a doctor's supervision are classified as Schedule II drugs. Where alcohol & tobacco are unscheduled.

Recreational Marijuana:





Modern society continues to indulge in the recreational use of cannabis as more and more states deem to decriminalize and legalize the plant.






Those that support the legalization of cannabis believe through conducted studies that this negative attitude towards marijuana has been disastrous considering the nations incarceration numbers.

The "pro" side of legalized cannabis use include:


  • Tax revenues
  • Alcohol and Tobacco far more harmful 
  • The cost of enforcement is not cost efficient
  • The laws are racially discriminatory


Legalization would also cut down the black market and money laundering aspect of this current mentality.
But this growing industry is facing a federal crackdown under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has compared cannabis to heroin. 


General requirements for recreational use are > 21 years of age, no public smoking, must be a licensed dispensary to buy or sell, can have anywhere from 1 ounce to as much as 10 ounces depending on the state. 

Edibles and oils that can be used in vapor pens are becoming very popular in the recreational user circles.

Investing in the future of Marijuana/Cannabis Industry:

As states increasingly allow the plant to be sold legally for medical & recreational use. It can be foreseen that investors would capitalize on this emerging industry. In 2017, the medical marijuana industry went up by 17% to about $6 billion. This industry is set to increase by another 25% this year alone. Estimates are charting $40 - $50 billion by 2025. It's a risky endeavor now yet, the future is on the right path to a very prosperous venture.



The tax revenues associated with the expansion of legalized use has proving fruitful in every state. Colorado saw a 57% increase between 2015 & 2016. Across the board, theses states are seeing much higher tax collection than from alcohol taxes. Even with the nasty history this plant has lived with. There is no denying that the benefits of legalization of marijuana/cannabis outweighs any past negativity. As I'm sure with most of the mentality in the political world........Money talks BS walks!


Millionaires are being made, industries are opening up, jobs are being added. Consumers as well as patients with medical conditions are much HAPPIER😉 Win-Win!
