Growlife's Plan for Website

Growlife Inc early this morning came out with plans to continue their chance on cornering the social aspect of the cannabis industry and continue to build cannabis.org. To read the full Pr release Click Here. I think just by owning the cannabis.org domain space alone gives the company the edge in the market. This company also is a life style branding and indoor grow company they do not deal with actual cannabis at all and have been around for years give them a look and do some research!!

Helping The Cannabis Industry

There is a recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine favoring the use of medical cannabis and the the fact that Feds should allow it. I think it helps with the DOJ's decision to finally comment on legalization for both recreational and medicinal uses of Cannabis. I think with a recent endorsement from the NEJM our chances are looking better!!!! Following is the quoted text from the article: Recommend the Medicinal Use of Marijuana "In sum, I believe that physicians who prescribe medicinal marijuana should do so only when conservative options have failed for fully informed patients treated in ongoing therapeutic relationships. As federal gridlock prevents much-needed research, patients such as Marilyn deserve the potential relief that medicinal marijuana affords." J. Michael Bostwick, M.D. Read full article here

Dixie Elixirs & Edibles New Products

With a posting on Facebook yesterday around 8 pm Dixie said "Watch for something new from Dixie Elixirs & Edibles tomorrow!" With much speculation on numerous boards all night and morning. It looks like we have new flavors of their popular Dixie Dew Drops to add to their current flavors of watermelon and spearmint flavor. This is not an official release. Still waiting on flavors!!!! Once again Dixie is at the top of their game and continue to innovate and lead this growing sector. I continue to think that this company has many things up it's sleeve for the year and this is just that start of it!

New position started

I started a new position in $PHOT todays. Chart looks ready to breakout for a nice little swing trade. stops tight! Will be holding and adding to current cannabis positions ($MJNA $PHOT) while awaiting feds response to legalization efforts by CO and WA.

Just 3 of the many reasons I am Long MJNA

3 Reasons I Am Long MJNA.PK Reason 1: "The Company received an opinion letter from counsel stating that it is legal to import, export, and sell products within the United Stated while using the "cannabidiol" in its name labeling, and marketing materials." How many states have introduced some type of industrial hemp bill this session alone? I think about 10 some in states you would not even believe Kentucky and Indiana to name. Not to mention that Congress has introduced 2 bills US HB525 US SB359. US HB525 summary Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2013 - Amends the Controlled Substances Act to exclude industrial hemp from the definition of "marihuana." Defines "industrial hemp" to mean the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-nine tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis. Deems Cannabis sativa L. to meet that concentration limit if a person grows or processes it for purposes of making industrial hemp in accordance with state law (legiscan.com/US/bill/HB525). US SB359 summary A bill to amend the Controlled Substances Act to exclude industrial hemp from the definition of marihuana, and for other purposes (legiscan.com/US/bill/SB359). With all the attention on industrial hemp would you not want a company that already have a strong hold on the industrial hemp market and that is positioned to acquire more subsidiaries relating to industrial hemp. Reason 2 "The Company has completed and submitted all documentation necessary for tier uplisting (OTC/QX)." So the company that I am willing to invest in is taking the proper steps to up-list and become more financially responsible to their shareholders. Hmm that makes you wonder about the company being legit right but why would a company want to be up-listed to OTC/QX. "Many U.S. companies list on OTCQX as the final step toward a NASDAQ or NYSE listing. Other U.S. companies enjoy the efficient compliance-driven and cost-effective model it offers their investors outside of a traditional exchange listing (www.otcmarkets.com/companies-advisors/ot...; Reason 3 "The Company and its counsel have have submitted all required documentation and a legal opinion letter for the removal of the Depository Trust Corporation (DTC) chill" (www.otcmarkets.com/financialReportViewer...). Once again the company is on top of their game. To me it seems since Tripp Keber has been on the main stage the company is really showing its real power. Tripp recently released a statement on FB about a recent libel attack and this is response Statement from Tripp Keber -President & CEO, Red Dice Holdings, LLC "I am incredibly grateful for all of the positive outreach and support the past week in light of the negative allegations recently made against our parent company, Medical Marijuana Inc. (MJNA - OTC PK) As I shared with listeners during my interview with the folks from OverGrow the Radio, MJNA is diligently working with their corporate attorneys to craft an appropriate response and action against those that libeled individuals both currently and formerly associated with MJNA. The statements made about the integrity of MJNA's management, as well as inaccurate facts that were used to potentially short the company's stock and generally manipulate the market are being taken very seriously and appropriate action is forthcoming. The company will defend its honor and reputation and will work tirelessly to continue to build on the foundation created over the past 12 months. It is important to note, MJNA, Red Dice Holdings and Dixie have real customers, real products, real assets and real revenue. No fabricated report by a rogue blogger with a direct financial interest in seeing our stock price decline can take that away from the thousands of shareholders and dozens of employees that believe in our mission - to build the most recognizable medical marijuana company in the United States and beyond. Thank you for your continued loyalty and support." (www.facebook.com/DixieElixirs?ref=ts&...) With the Greenrush or FiscalSpliff starting I want to be one of the first people invested in the newest growth sector in the US. Take a look for yourself and decide if this sector and this company is real but I would think with 18 states passing some type of medical marijuana law and 2 states even legalizing recreational use of marijuana there will be growth and MJNA business model looks the most promising to grow and expand all the US. Long MJNA

Missouri is now in the Industrial Hemp wagon

SB 358 Exempts industrial hemp from the list of controlled substances and specifies that it is legal for anyone who has not been convicted of a drug-related crime to cultivate such hemp Sponsor: Holsman LR Number: 1748S.01I Fiscal Note not available Committee: Last Action: 2/20/2013 - S First Read--SB 358-Holsman Journal Page: S325 Title: Calendar Position: 57 Effective Date: August 28, 2013 Full Bill Text | All Actions | Amendments/CCRs/CCSs | Available Summaries | Senate Home Page | List of 2013 Senate Bills Current Bill Summary SB 358 - This act exempts industrial hemp, which is defined as cannabis sativa L. containing no greater than one percent THC, from the definition of marijuana and the list of controlled substances. In addition, this act specifies that it is legal for any person who has not been convicted of any drug-related offense to grow and cultivate industrial hemp. Under this act, the burden of proof is on the defendant to prove that a substance is industrial hemp and not a controlled substance. This act is identical to HB 620 (2011)

Update to US HB499

Yesterday US HB499 finally had a little movement and was referred to the Subcommittee on Conservation, Energy, and Forestry. At least its just not sitting there collecting dust waiting to die. Hopefully this helps $MJNA $CBIS $HEMP $PHOT and the rest of the sector.

Medbox Featured in Huffington Post Report on the Legal Marijuana Industry

Pr newswire for $MDBX
HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Medbox, Inc. (OTC Markets: MDBX) (www.medboxinc.com), CEO Dr. Bruce Bedrick was featured in a Huffington Post Report that compared investing in the legal marijuana industry to investing in the beginning of the personal computer revolution. "As states decriminalize marijuana, entrepreneurs and investors are looking at ways to finance and profit from the industry," the report stated. Furthermore, ancillary businesses that provide services to the industry, like Medbox, may offer a significant growth opportunity.
The industry is exploding, according to Troy Dayton , CEO of the ArcView Group. "There's a geyser that's about to go off and marijuana could be the next great American industry," he said. And rather than invest in the actual crop, it is a much safer to invest in the businesses that supply services to the industry. "That's why a lot of focus is on the ancillary businesses," he said. "There's so much more opportunity in those spaces."
Jeffrey Miron , Senior Lecturer in Economics at Harvard University said that major companies may soon become involved in the industry, possibly through acquisition.  "I'm sure that big businesses will want to get involved," he said. The respected economist and former chairman of the Department of Economics at Boston University expressed confidently that "Certainly some big player is going to get involved."
"The industry is between $1 and $50 billion annually, and it's growing," Brendan Kennedy , CEO of Privateer Holdings stated. "There's a feeling like it's 1996, before the Internet revolution."
Huffington post moderator Alyona Minkovski said that other companies may not be able to enter the Medbox niche.
"It's all about our patents," Dr. Bruce Bedrick , CEO of Medbox stated. "Our technology is for the safe storage and automated dispensing of all pharmaceuticals, not just medical marijuana. However within that niche we are also one of the industry's leading and most successful consultants," he added.
Medbox consults with state regulatory commissions as to compliant and transparent means of program implementation, and also helps people open a dispensary by taking them through the lengthy and complicated licensing process, that culminates in a technology sale to the newly licensed operator. "We have the safest, most secure way of storing and dispensing the medicine," Bedrick stated. "Safety, security, control, and compliance are what we are all about."
In other news, the company clarified that the transactions executed with the private investment firm that were announced last week involved restricted common stock issued directly from the company that have a minimum hold time of 1 year before being eligible for resale on a public market. In total, 2 agreements were executed January 17, 2013 with the entity. The first was for a purchase of $5 million dollars worth of restricted shares at market rate at the time, which was $70 per share, amounting to 71,428 shares. The second transaction was for a total of 100,000 shares at $1,000,000. The average share price for the 2 transactions was $35 per share for restricted common stock. The transactions are not contingent on any criteria to be performed by Medbox.
