(Acquisitions, Aphria Inc., California, Canada, Cannabis, Delaware, Distributor, Germany, Legalization, Mexico, News, Partnerships, Production, Products, United States, Uruguay, Cultivation) This year has seen significant cannabis market consolidation—largely driven by Canada’s nationwide cannabis legalization in October —as companies look to expand their global geographical footprints and gain market share. Even small companies are looking to expand their reach or be acquired to gain access to larger companies’ infrastructure and compete in an increasingly competitive industry. In November alone, we’ve seen Dixie Brands Inc. and Academy Explorations Limited (a reporting issuer in Ontario) complete a reverse takeover transaction (following Dixie’s close of its Series C fundraising round of approximately $25 million), forming a Delaware-incorporated operating company named, ultimately, Dixie Brands Inc. The move comes as Dixie Brands plans to expand beyond its current four-state operations “into four to six additional states in 2019 through partnerships with licensed and regulated producers in each state,” according to the company’s press release.Edmonton, Canada-based...

After Uruguay and Canada, who will be next to legalise cannabis?
(Canada, Cannabis, Colombia, Development, Edibles, Germany, Greece, Growing, Hemp, Investors, Israel, Jamaica, Lebanon, Lesotho, Luxembourg, Media, Mexico, Netherlands, Peru, Products, Recreational, Regulations, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Uruguay, Security) When Uruguay legalised cannabis for recreational purposes in 2013, it was difficult to imagine that five and a half years later, a G8 nation like Canada would be taking the next step in this direction. Anyone who follows these global developments will be in little doubt that more countries will follow in the foreseeable future. But which ones will that be? Below is a cursory list of the most likely candidates. 1. Mexico The USA’s southern neighbour could soon pass a law that would regulate growing and selling as early as mid-2019. Following a ground-breaking decision by the Supreme Court on October 31, the future President announced that cannabis would be legalised. Whilst the judge had merely declared that the penalties for small-scale consumption, possession and growing offences were illegal, on November 8, Senator Olga Sanchez from the future governing party PRI said the following: “We need to reassess our country’s drugs policy.

Mexico’s President Elect’s Party Submits Marijuana Legalization Bill
(Advertising, Alcohol, Canada, Cannabis, Growing, Legalization, Mexico, Packaging, Products, Tobacco, Uruguay) By Associated Press (AP) — The party of Mexico’s president-elect submitted legislation on Nov 8th that would legalize marijuana possession, public use, growing and sales. Sen. Olga Sanchez Cordero presented the measure, saying that everyone should have “the right to carry up to 30 grams (one ounce) of cannabis.” People could carry more than an ounce if they requested a permit to do so under the proposal. “From the point of view of negative effects, there is no reason why marijuana should not be legal, if alcohol and tobacco are,” according to the bill. Cordero has been picked as interior secretary by President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who takes office Dec 1. She is currently a senator for Lopez Obrador’s leftist Morena party. Her bill also would allow every Mexican to grow up to 20 marijuana plants on private property and produce up to 17 ounces (480 grams) a year. Public smoking of marijuana would be allowed, “except in tobacco smoke-free spaces.” Sales of marijuana would...

Thinking About Investing In Pot Stocks?
(Canada, Cannabis, CBD, Consumer Goods, Drinks, Edibles, Food, Grower, Growers, Growing, Investing, Investment, Investors, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, New York, News, Nutraceuticals, Organic, Partnerships, Products, Recreational, Research, Tobacco, United States, Uruguay, Vertically Integrated, Dispensaries, Recreational Cannabis, Pharmaceuticals) Meet the Pot Stocks On October 17, Canada became the second country in the world (after Uruguay ) to legalize the sale of recreational cannabis. It’s expected that this will create a market estimated at $5 billion a year on top of medical marijuana sales, and speed up the process of legalization in America, where the recreational market is predicted to grow as big as $47 billion over the next ten years. Unsurprisingly, legalization has been the catalyst for a flurry of activity on Wall Street with everyone and their auntie rushing to cash in on a market opportunity so lucrative, it’s been dubbed the Green Rush. Earlier this month, Vivien Azer, the only cannabis analyst from a major Wall Street research house, estimated that the US market could grow as large as $500 billion with growth across four key verticals including: adult use, beauty and nutraceuticals, OTC pain and sleep, and pharmaceuticals. New Frontier Data issued a recent report that predicts the creation of 1 million jobs...

ASIAN NATIONS EYE THE CANNABIS POT OF GOLD
(Banking, Canada, Cannabis, China, Distribution, Hemp, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Manufacturing, Medical Marijuana, Philippines, Production, Recreational, Regulations, Research, Scientific Research, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Uruguay, Industrial Hemp, Patents, Cultivation) After almost a century of prohibition, Canada has become the second country in the world, after Uruguay, to fully legalize the use of cannabis. Accounting firm Deloitte estimates legal marijuana is expected to become more than a $6bn business in Canada in 2019, with up to $4.34bn coming from the legal recreational market and as much as $1.79bn from medical sales. The global legal medical cannabis market alone could be worth more than $50bn by 2025. The dizzying numbers surrounding Canada’s ‘green rush’ has triggered interest across Asia as hardliners soften their attitudes towards cannabis use, incentivized by the potential economic impact of legalizing the weed in their countries. Here is some of what’s happening in Asia; SRI LANKA Sri Lanka will begin cultivating cannabis for medical purposes later this year. Health minister Rajitha Senaratne said he plans for cultivation to take place across 100 acres of designated cannabis plantation land in the north-central Anuradhapura and...

Mexico may be next to legalize cannabis: incoming FM
(Canada, Cannabis, Mexico, Production, Recreational, Uruguay) Mexico “absolutely” could follow Canada’s lead in legalizing marijuana as a way to reduce violence generated by a war on drugs that “doesn’t work,” its incoming foreign minister said Tuesday. Marcelo Ebrard, who will become foreign minister when Mexico’s president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador takes office December 1, said he discussed Ottawa’s experience Monday with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland. Asked whether Mexico might follow Canada’s example, Ebrard told reporters, “Sure, absolutely.” “We think it is a very interesting option in the short term for Mexico,” he said. “We think there are two options: the Canadian model or the Uruguay model.” “It doesn’t make sense to have a law forbidding the possession or production of cannabis and we have 9,000 people in jail for that, we have a huge amount of violence in the country,” Ebrard said. “You spend a huge amount of money (on policing), you cause suffering for a lot of people and it doesn’t make sense.” Prohibition, he...
