North American Cannabis Holdings (USMJ) and Puration (PURA) have started 2017 at a gangbuster rate, and we anticipate the pace to pickup from here. We have initiated a transaction with Aternet Systems, Inc. (USOTC: ALYI) to launch a cannabis retail payment system, and another transaction involving Spanish Peaks ScrumpDelicacies and ML Capital Group (USOTC: MLCG) to enhance our cannabis infused edibles business with a luxury cannabis tour offering starting in Colorado and expanding into other regions. The cannabis tour service will be similar to wine enthusiasts tours through Napa Valley and Tuscany. We have launched the EVERx Cannabis Infused Sports and Fitness Nutritional Supplement Brand with a tremendously successful event at the Arnold Sports Festival, and we have seen our quarterly revenue numbers jump by nearly fifty percent. Our humble beginnings back in 2013 initiated by four US Military Veterans inspired by the use of cannabinol (CBD) to ease the symptoms of a seizure disordered suffered by one of the Veterans’ daughters have now matured into a promising operation with blockbuster potential.
USMJ Is About To Do To Cannabis What NETFLIX Did To Cable And UBER Did To Taxis
USMJ is preparing to transform organizationally extending its lead in the cannabis sector even further ahead of the field of cannabis sector companies vying for investor attention. No, that is not code for an impending reverse split. A reverse split is not part of our plan to transform. USMJ has honed and continues to improve upon a business model where it pilots a variety of cannabis enterprises and then rewards it investors by issuing stock in spinoffs of successful pilots ready to standalone. The planned organizational transformation will be initiated by a strategic acquisition bringing new key talent and assets into USMJ, and in so doing, taking USMJ’s pilot and spinoff business model to a whole new level. Nothing like USMJ’s pilot and spinoff business model exits in the cannabis sector, and what USMJ is about to introduce with this coming transformation will change the cannabis sector the way NETFLIX changed cable television and UBER changed taxi and limo service.
The Transformation Begins 4/20 2017
The annual cannabis industry 420 celebration is only a month away. Watch out next week when USMJ and PURA announce a coming trade show exhibit in conjunction with this year’s 420 celebration as the first small part of the two Companies’ plan to introduce the industry changing transformation. USMJ and PURA will be joined at the 420 trade show by the target acquisition that will catalyze USMJ’s transformation. The trade show will also include the official launch of the AmeriCanna Cafe. After acquiring the flagship City Blends Smoothie Cafe in located in Dallas in the summer of 2015 in order to develop a fast casual cannabis concept restaurant, USMJ will demo the AmeriCanna Cafe at the 420 conference to begin marketing license, franchise and partnership opportunities to restaurant investors.
Nothing Proves Out A Pilot Opportunity Like Revenue
USMJ has published a business plan forecast for $2 million in revenue expected to result from the ongoing expansion of its existing pilot operations with the bulk of the revenue coming from its AmeriCanna Cafe pilot and live launch. PURA has published a $3 million business plan revenue forecast based on the infusion of its proprietary cannabis extracts into foods and beverages. Management of both Companies is enthusiastic about progress so far this year and confidently maintaining the previously published forecasts.
ALYI Is On Its Way And Spanish Peaks Has A Surprise
The dividend issue of PURA stock to USMJ shareholders was a long process, but one rich with experience that will be evident in the future issuance of dividends. Management anticipates a more deliberate execution of the dividend issuance of ALYI stock to USMJ shareholder and of Spanish Peaks stock to PURA shareholders. MLCG shareholders will also benefit from USMJ and PURA’s dividend experience in regard to the issuance of Spanish Peaks stock to MLCG shareholders. While Spanish Peaks is currently a private company – spoiler alert – a Spanish Peaks reverse merger with an existing public company is in the works. PURA and MLCG shareholders can anticipate receiving Spanish Peaks public stock in conjunction with the PURA MLCG Spanish Peaks transaction. Stay tuned for future announcements to learn more.
Don’t Listen To The News – The White House Supports Cannabis
President Trump is a populist president and “populist” is not necessarily a dirty word. Meriam-Webster defines populist as “a member of a political party claiming to represent the common people.” Now “populist” might be a dirty word if the actions of a politician only “claim” to represent the common people while the true intent is something else. Populist politics is sometimes compared to parenting. Parents shouldn’t always give children what they want. Except voters aren’t children. Please keep in mind, nothing here is intended to support or attack the Trump Presidency. Our interest is very specifically in the eventual Federal legalization of cannabis, and in the meantime, a continued federal laissez fair policy toward states’ legalization of cannabis. Our intent here is to cut through barrage of opinionated, riot inspiring news to take a sober look at the reality of the cannabis situation when it comes to what the Federal Government may or may not do in regard to the enforcement of federal cannabis laws. From our vantage point, we believe the media reaction to Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comments and Jeff Sessions stick in the mud personal opinion about cannabis is much ado about nothing.
It’s difficult to argue that President Trump is at least acting as a “populist” politician. We’ll leave it to you to judge his true populist intent. We believe giving voters what they want is a good thing and we hope that’s what President Trump is really up to. We won’t argue against characterizing President Trump as offensive. President Trump seems to have a gift when it comes to offensiveness. Many of us have a crotchety old relative, probably about President Trump’s age, that manages to insult everyone at the Thanksgiving table, but he’s family and everyone still loves him.
So Press Secretary Spicer makes some disturbing comments about the Federal Government enforcing federal marijuana laws in spite of local state marijuana legalization. However, a few days later, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a statement to counter balance Press Secretary Spicer’s earlier comments. Attorney General Sessions talked about “responsible laws,” and acknowledging states’ rights to “pass the laws they choose.” An optimistic interpretation of the disturbing statements followed by a balancing counter-statement might be that the Trump Administration is attempting to find a “populist” balance. While giving voters what they want might be a lofty idea, not all voters want the same thing. In fact, voters can often be at odds as to what they want. Every issue in America can’t logistically be taken to a popular vote. It might be sheer genius to test the waters on issues by suggesting an extreme policy; afterwards assessing the reaction to the extreme policy suggestion, and ultimately backing off from the extreme suggestion to simply implement a practical policy that the majority of voters can all tolerate. Press Secretary Spicer just might be the White House sonar pinging for mines so the White House can steer clear and maneuver through populist waters.
Remember the transitive property from high school math? If A=B. and B=C, then A=C. Ok, so it appears that an anti-marijuana sentiment exists amongst those voters that put Trump in the White House. President Trump, crotchety old relative charisma aside, might deserve some credit for trying to acknowledge the sentiments of those that elected him. However, clearly the majority of Americans are pro marijuana legalization. If President Trump is a true populist trying to give voters what they want (not just the voters that voted for him), and if the majority voters want legal marijuana, then A=C and President Trump’s Administration will not only support states marijuana laws, but eventual federal marijuana legalization overall.
Some may think President Trump is not a genuine populist and that he is only laying claim to a populist agenda in order to advance some nefarious counter agenda. If that’s the case, let’s have faith that the American people will do what they do and rise to the occasion in the face of such treachery. Either way, if he’s a really a populist, legal cannabis is safe. If he’s poser with a nefarious agenda, the American people will do what they do and cannabis is still safe.
