EDITOR'S NOTE

D.A. Wallace

Editor In Chief

Greetings and a warm welcome to our 8th issue of the CANNAINVESTOR Magazine! We couldn't be more excited to bring our magazine to cannabis investors, analysts, financial media and cannabis executives.

2016 has been a year in which the industry has seen solid

progress. The cannabis industry ended 2016 with medical

marijuana being legal in 28 states and D.C. and recreational

marijuana being legal in 8 states and D.C. Analysts estimate

California alone will significantly increase the legal cannabis

market from an estimated $6 bilion to $18 billion indsutry. In

addition, we think California will finally bring cannabis out of

the black market and into a state and government regulated

market. We would hope that Wall Sreet and politicians move

the industry forward because they recognize the medical

benefits of cannabis. However, history teaches us that Wall

Street and politicians are motivated by profit and if that is

the case the cannabis industry will not disappoint them.

We're optimistic for 2017, but very excited regarding 2018,

when we should see the "fruits of our labor."

Thank you for letting us keep you informed and assist you in

your research of this new and emerging market. We

appreciate your support and are so happy to have you as a

reader of the CANNAINVESTOR Magazine!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
