Greetings and a warm welcome to our 10th issue of the CANNAINVESTOR Magazine! We couldn't be more excited to bring our magazine to cannabis investors, analysts, financial media and cannabis executives.

Over the past couple of weeks there has been some concern about comments made by Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary and Jeff Sessions, Attorney General. In summary, their comments reflect a positive stance for medical marijuana and a negative one for recreational. We feel politicians have contributors and those contributors are interested in one thing - making money. The question is, can contributors make money with a "war on drugs" or legalizing recreational marijuana. "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." In other words, contributors are not going to give up their 'war on drugs" revenue for a smaller revenue stream like recreational marijuana. So politicians will continue to be tough on drugs so they can appease their contributors. From a contributors view point, they all benefit monetarily on a "war on drugs' policy except those who are the victims of the policy, but everybody doesn't benefit from the legalization of marijuana. Eventually, recreational marijuana will pass at the federal level with help from the States and grassroots efforts.

The question is, do you have the cash to "weather the storm?"

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!
