$NETE to Provide Third-party Banking throughout Russia with Sputnik Bank

Global technology and value-added solutions group Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) recently reported its entry into a partnership with Sputnik Bank in Russia. The arrangement aims to offer third party bank processing to other banks throughout the country. A recent article further discussing the company’s partnership reads, “Net Element and Sputnik are expected to start selling a processing service to small banks, Russian third-party vendors, credit organizations, value-added resellers and sales organizations. The cost of processing will be brought down, and the service will also give smaller Russian banks a chance to utilize much more current software than the products on which they’re currently relying for in-house processing. … Sputnik will provide the capacity for the data center needed for the execution of the program. Financial instruments for settlement of transactions will also be provided. The partnership will enable PayOnline to process transactions as a payment facilitator. This way, PayOnline’s offering will be expanded beyond the current electronic commerce.”

$YGYI Cannabis Industry Enjoying High Despite Tumultuous Month for Other Stocks

NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2018 — via CannabisNewsWire – CannabisNewsWire (“CNW”), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI), a client of CNW offering a hybrid of the direct selling business model that combines e-commerce and the power of social selling.

To view the full publication, titled “Cannabis Ignores Wider Stock Market, Follows Its Own Path,” visit: http://cnw.fm/wTL7L

The cannabis industry isn’t self-contained. The spread of legalization and the emergence of derivative products has created a diverse sector combining exciting startups with older companies dipping their toes in a novel market. Alongside the pure-play cannabis brands, there are pharmaceutical businesses and even lifestyle companies such as Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI).

The idea that weed doesn’t correlate to other stocks seems to have some truth. This was shown by the events of early to mid-October, when legal reform and individual brand announcements set it on an opposite trend from other shares. While the Dow has headed towards its worst month since May 2010, cannabis stocks have carved their own path. It looked like good news for companies such as Youngevity.

About Youngevity International, Inc.

Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI) is a leading omni-direct lifestyle company offering a hybrid of the direct selling business model that also offers e-commerce and the power of social selling. Assembling a virtual Main Street of products and services under one corporate entity, Youngevity offers proven products from the six top-selling retail categories: health/nutrition, home/family, food/beverage (including coffee), spa/beauty, apparel/jewelry, as well as innovative services. The company was formed during the summer 2011 merger of Youngevity Essential Life Sciences with Javalution® Coffee Company (now part of the company’s food and beverage division). The resulting company became Youngevity International, Inc. in July 2013. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.YGYI.com

$VVCIF Launches Free Medical Cannabis Telemedicine Platform

NAPANEE, Ontario, Oct. 30, 2018 — VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX-V: VIVO, OTCQX: VVCIF) (“VIVO” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Harvest Medicine Inc. (“Harvest Medicine” or “HMED”), one of Canada’s fastest growing specialty medical cannabis clinic networks, is launching a free telemedicine service for medical cannabis care and education via an app.

The service, known as HMED Connect, will allow patients from across Canada to access Harvest Medicine’s class leading education and patient-centric model at any time, from the comfort of their homes via mobile phone, tablet or computer.

“HMED has been recognized for its unique approach and dedication to providing exceptional care at its physical clinics and we are now bringing that model into the virtual telemedicine space,” stated Shekhar Parmar, Chief Executive Officer of HMED. “Our belief is that HMED Connect will transform the medical cannabis experience for patients and physicians and open the door to unique partnership opportunities with pharmacies, insurance companies, primary care physicians, and other healthcare organizations.”

HMED Connect is a custom built, secure, user-friendly, multi-media rich telemedicine platform that features seamless integration of educational videos and access to helpful patient resources.

The mobile or desk-top app facilitates virtual appointments for patients with intake staff, prescribing clinicians and cannabis educators, resulting in the full completion of the patient journey, including registration with Licensed Producers, and ongoing support.  HMED’s proprietary methodology, perfected over the course of over 45,000 patient visits, for assessing the patients’ needs and appropriately matching them with the ideal License Producer ensures that patients are not overwhelmed in the selection process and end up with the best suited provider.

“Not all telemedicine platforms are created equal. HMED Connect was developed to be the best in class, and as a direct result of feedback from our patients and an emerging trend in healthcare for convenient telemedicine solutions,” said Mr. Parmar. “We believe that this unique platform containing guided video content, educational resources, and much more, will allow us to scale our highly success model across the country and help more Canadians realize the benefits of medical cannabis.”

Visit www.hmed.ca/connect for more information and to download the App from the Apple iOS and Android Play stores.

Earlier this year HMED was acquired by VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX:VIVO).  With the additional capital backing of VIVO, and the launch of a custom-built telemedicine platform, HMED is poised to aggressively expand their effective and highly scalable model across the country.

$NUGL Expands Operations and Footprint

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 30, 2018 — via NetworkWire – NUGL Inc. (OTC: NUGL) (the “Company”), the cannabis industry’s new standard of technology, today reports it has expanded internal operations to support sales and marketing growth as well as the anticipated launch of NUGL Magazine.

The newly created sales and marketing leadership positions within NUGL include:

  • LA Regional Sales Representative;
  • National Sales Representative; and
  • Online Digital Marketing Manager.

Five new consultants have recently been added to the team as a part of this expansion. Collectively, the positions range from national advertising sales associates to internet traffic manager positions and national content contributors.

“We are growing fast, and November is the month to start monetizing our growth. We are creating a massive digital footprint with the acquisition of two magazines underway and the launch of NUGL Magazine. Our digital footprint offers something for all types of cannabis enthusiasts and the NUGL software is at the heart of all of it,” said Ryan Bartlette, CMO of NUGL.com.

NUGL has signed a binding letter of intent this month to acquire a 100% ownership interest in Nichols Publishing, which owns and operates Garden & Greenhouse and Professional Marijuana Grower, and now has launched their own culturally based magazine, NUGL Magazine (https://nuglmagazine.com/). Each magazine offers something different, allowing a wide range when it comes to reaching large audiences.

“NUGL Magazine covers how the cannabis industry effects everyday culture in our lives. Music, cooking, and even the job you go to everyday are now being influenced by cannabis. Cannabis is mainstream, and NUGL magazine is going to cover this,” said Bob Waters, V.P. of Sales for NUGL.

With the legalization of marijuana recently in Canada, technology is playing a big role in this industry, including everything from artificial intelligence in production, to software for supply chain management, to e-commerce sites for distribution and apps to help track usage. In a recent ITBusiness.ca article, it was stated, “With Bloomberg predicting $4.5 billion in sales by 2021 in the cannabis sector, there is a lot to be gained from entering the new cannabis industry, and companies across Canada are looking to cash in, from Canadian tech-giant Shopify, to local startups, these organizations are finding new ways to plant their seeds in the recreational cannabis market.”

As a software company in the cannabis space, and now having a national publication and another few in the works, NUGL is creating a media conglomerate built around a software application with potential for massive networking reach. This is an aggressive strategy that will allow its userbase to find multiple uses and content.

ABOUT NUGL MAGAZINE

Along with NUGL’s partnered publications – Professional Marijuana Grower and Garden & Greenhouse – NUGL Magazine covers the cannabis industry’s biggest news and how it effects the community at large. Our global contributors share real life stories about current cannabis issues and events. We share bios, news and advice straight from those who are actively participating in and shifting the cannabis industry. Whether it’s original compelling content or fan submissions, we seek to offer you the hippest trends, latest legislation, newest products and best of everything cannabis related!

NUGL and Nichols Publishing, an Iowa-based corporation that publishes Professional Marijuana Grower and Garden & Greenhouse, entered into a joint-venture marketing agreement 30 days ago.

“The synergies between the magazines and NUGL’s software are aligned perfectly. Previously, our userbase utilized our application to perform a function, and then they left. Now, we can give our userbase additional content and redirect NUGL traffic to the magazine and vice versa. Together, both companies will be stronger, and we plan to expand the magazines’ readership in a big way once the acquisition is complete,” said Bob Waters, V.P. of Sales at NUGL.

About NUGL

NUGL is the world’s first cannabis search app built for the people, by the people. Our goal is to build the most user-friendly app experience in the cannabis industry by listening to our users and giving them what they want. NUGL is the only cannabis search app that offers equal and unbiased search results. We don’t sell top-spot listings or fake reviews, so our data stays true. Use NUGL to search for genuine user-rated dispensaries, strains, doctors, lawyers, cannabis service providers, vape shops, hydro stores, brands and more. NUGL’s flexible web app has no geographic limitations and can rapidly connect cannabis companies, related vertical services and users. The NUGL iOS and Android app brings a powerful cannabis search tool within reach of anyone, anytime, anywhere with the ease of a smartphone.

$NUGS Takes Necessary Steps to Uplist to a National Exchange

Cannabis Strategic Ventures (OTC: NUGS) recently appointed a new board member with expertise in finance as the company prepares to uplist to a national exchange. A recent article discussing the company’s strategic move reads, “The appointment of Alan Tran to the board of directors of Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS) augurs well for the company’s fortunes, because it is an action that’s likely to be replicated across the cannabis industry. A report in Forbes (http://nnw.fm/C6w5Y) titled ‘Marijuana is the Fastest-Growing Job Category, Top Recruiting CEO Says’ shows that those forces are already in play. Now that 31 states and Washington, DC have legalized medical marijuana and 10 of those jurisdictions have done the same with recreational cannabis, “there’s 445 percent growth in job listings… year over year.”  Cannabis Strategic Ventures aims to capitalize on that trend. Earlier this year, the company completed a definitive agreement to acquire Worldwide Staffing Group, Inc., which, in 2017, booked approximately $1.5 million in revenues. Its hire of Tran is the first in a series of steps to be taken as it prepares to uplist its common shares to a national exchange.”

$RIV.V 420 with CNW – California Proposes Tough Changes to Marijuana Regulations

The Bureau of Cannabis Control, together with the Department of Public Health and the Department of Food and Agriculture in California have released an updated draft set of rules that will form the permanent regulations which will govern the cannabis industry in the state.

The public has been invited to provide its input to that draft so that the regulators can finalize the document in early December. Public comments will be received until November 5.

Experts say the draft contains a number of “bombs” that will have a major impact on the way the industry operates.

For example, the draft set of permanent rules seeks to prevent third party entities from participating in the delivery of cannabis to consumers or retailers/distributors. Only third parties that have a cannabis license may get involved in the distribution of marijuana.

That measure would affect technological platforms which had come up to generate revenues from cannabis distribution. The draft regulations allow tech platform to facilitate the distribution as long as those platforms don’t earn from such an undertaking. This seems logical, since those tech platforms don’t have a marijuana license issued by the State of California.

Secondly, the draft rules seek to lower the quantity of cannabis that a delivery vehicle may transport during a single trip. Previously, delivery vehicles were allowed to carry cannabis or cannabis products worth a maximum of $10,000. That limit may now drop to $5,000 if that provision stays as it is in the draft rules.

Furthermore, at least $2,000-worth of cannabis from the $5,000 value loaded onto a delivery vehicle has to be for orders that have already been made. This provision may be intended to curb the practice of delivery vans moving with excess products in the hope that additional buyers will show up where the vehicle has gone to take products.

The third major change being introduced in the draft of permanent rules is the requirement for cannabis businesses to disclose everyone who has a stake in those businesses. The regulators want to know everyone who stands to benefit from the industry, so silent partners will become a thing of the past in the marijuana industry.

On a brighter note, the updated draft intends to reduce the stringent test requirements that previously resulted in many products failing those tests and being recalled from the market. This provision seems to be in response to a cry from the industry regarding the current testing protocols.

Additionally, licensed marijuana events will also no longer be restricted to county fairgrounds. This paves the way for a variety of cannabis events to crop up within the state as the years go by.

The updated draft rules seem to have been informed by the different situations on the ground as the industry evolves. Some areas have been tightened while other regulatory areas have seen restrictions eased somewhat. It remains to be seen what marijuana companies like Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS) and Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSX.V: RIV) make of those draft permanent regulations.

$NUGS Welcomes PureOrganix Shelf Presence

  • Americans spending a growing amount of capital on cannabis concentrates, with forecasts for $2.9 billion in sales this year
  • Cannabis Strategic Ventures recently announced the introduction of high-quality concentrate line PureOrganix in California dispensaries
  • PureOrganix presence expected to gain national, international footing amid advancing tide of cannabis legalization

Cannabis industry incubator Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS) is working its way toward a national stock exchange uplisting and growing its presence within the industry through a series of timely business building ventures, including the introduction of PureOrganix, a brand marketed by subsidiary Pure Applied Sciences as a California dispensary shelf item that expects to blossom in a ready national and international market for legalized plant products.

PureOrganix is a high-quality concentrate line composed of organic and pure cannabis oils that conform to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Current Good Manufacturing Practices protocols. Under a non-exclusive cannabis concentrate extraction services agreement with a U.S. subsidiary of Sunniva Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF), Pure Applied Sciences gets white-labeled ultra-purified cannabis extracts that the company then develops through marketing and licensing efforts for distribution to retail stores.

“Having our brand available to consumers is a huge milestone for PureOrganix,” Cannabis Strategic Ventures CEO Simon Yu stated in a news release about the product line (http://nnw.fm/r6PB7). “We have spent months refining our formulation, branding and designing our product to appeal to our target demographic… Concentrates are already revolutionizing the way cannabis is being consumed. The PureOrganix brand has already captured a strong following.”

The company cites a September 2018 market report by Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics (http://nnw.fm/weFh6) that Americans will spend 49 percent more on concentrates this year than they did last year, boosting concentrates’ portion of the overall cannabis market to 27 percent of sales. The report further predicts that spending on concentrates will grow from $2.9 billion this year to $8 billion by 2022, less than five years from now, following a rise of the overall market to more than $24 billion by 2021 (http://nnw.fm/SVs2Z).

“Understanding this growing market segment is quickly becoming an essential part of the strategic landscape for cultivators, extractors, distributors, brands, retailers, and investors operating in the cannabis space,” the report states.

More than half of U.S. states have provided some form of legal framework for using cannabis medicinally, and the FDA’s approval of a cannabis-based drug as an anti-seizure prescription medication led the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to reclassify the chemical extract cannabidiol (CBD) as a nationally legal drug in FDA-approved medications last month (http://nnw.fm/3q9Oq). Canada legalized all medicinal and recreational uses of cannabis nationwide this month under locally governed frameworks (http://nnw.fm/90wOz).

The growing legalization landscape for cannabis portends fertile ground for cannabis-related businesses. Cannabis Strategic Ventures operates out of Los Angeles as a publicly traded entity committed to acquiring, incubating, developing and partnering with companies in the startup and growth stages worldwide. Its commitment of capital and expertise to the cannabis sector and ancillary industries is in turn a vehicle for building a continually expanding portfolio of brands and hard assets to which investors in vertically integrated enterprises can turn.

In a dramatic development, NUGL just announced a binding letter of intent to purchase Nichols Publishing Company. In what can be viewed as complete confidence in NUGL’s future, Nichols Publishing agreed to be acquired in exchange for $1 million in NUGL common stock.

Nichols will join NUGL following the acquisition and run the publications’ operation under the NUGL name.

$TGODF Arrangement Agreement to Effect the Previously Announced Spin-off Transaction

TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2018 – The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (the “Company” or “TGOD“) (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, TGOD Acquisition Corporation (“SpinCo“), are pleased to announce that they have entered into a definitive arrangement agreement (the “Arrangement Agreement“) pursuant to which the Company will, subject to the terms and conditions of the Arrangement Agreement, effect the previously announced spin-off transaction (the “Spin-Off“) whereby TGOD will distribute to TGOD shareholders (the “Distribution“) unit purchase warrants of SpinCo (the “SpinCo Unit Warrants“) by way of a court-approved plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement“).

Pursuant to the Arrangement, TGOD shareholders of record as of the distribution date (the “Distribution Record Date“) will receive 0.15 of one SpinCo Unit Warrant for each TGOD share held. Each SpinCo Unit Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one unit of SpinCo (a “SpinCo Unit“) at a price of $0.50 per SpinCo Unit for a period of 30 days from completion of the Distribution. Each SpinCo Unit will consist of one common share of SpinCo (“SpinCo Share“) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of SpinCo (a “SpinCo Warrant“). Each SpinCo Warrant is exercisable into one SpinCo Share (a “SpinCo Warrant Share“) at an exercise price of $1.25 per SpinCo Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the date the SpinCo Shares commence trading on a recognized stock exchange (the “Listing Date“). The SpinCo Shares comprising part of the SpinCo Units will be subject to a six month contractual escrow period from the Listing Date. The SpinCo Shares issuable upon the exercise of the SpinCo Warrants will be subject to a twelve month contractual escrow period from the Listing Date.

The aggregate SpinCo Unit Warrants to be distributed to TGOD shareholders will be issued by SpinCo to TGOD pursuant to a transaction expense agreement which was entered into by the Company and SpinCo concurrently with the Arrangement Agreement, pursuant to which TGOD will pay SpinCo’s costs related to the preparation and completion of the Spin-Off up to a maximum of $200,000.

The structure of the Spin-Off has been approved by the board of directors of the Company (the “TGOD Board“) following consultation with its financial and legal advisors and a review of other strategic options available to transfer TGOD’s expertise and monetize TGOD’s proprietary knowledge of the global cannabis marketplace.  Structuring the Spin-Off in a tax efficient manner for TGOD shareholders has been a significant factor in the TGOD Board’s considerations. The TGOD Board has determined that the Spin-Off is in the best interest of TGOD and its shareholders and, having taken into account advice from its financial and legal advisors, has unanimously approved the Arrangement giving effect to the Spin-Off and recommends that TGOD shareholders vote in favour of the Arrangement.

The Arrangement remains subject to the approval of at least two-thirds of the votes cast by TGOD shareholders at the TGOD Meeting (as defined below). Completion of the Arrangement is also subject to other closing conditions customary for a transaction of this nature, including requisite corporate, regulatory and court approvals. The establishment of the Distribution Record Date remains subject to the satisfaction of all conditions to the Arrangement (including receipt of requisite corporate, regulatory, shareholder and court approvals) and the approval of the TSX. Subject to the foregoing, the Distribution Record Date is anticipated to be in mid-December 2018. The Company will provide further updates on the Distribution and the Distribution Record Date in due course.

TGOD Meeting

The resolutions to approve the Arrangement and the SpinCo Offering (as defined below) will be presented to TGOD shareholders together with annual meeting matters at an annual general and special meeting of TGOD shareholders to be held on December 6, 2018 (the “TGOD Meeting“). Further details of the Arrangement, the SpinCo Offering and annual meeting matters will be included in a management information circular of TGOD (the “Circular“) to be prepared in respect of the TGOD Meeting. TGOD intends to mail the Circular in early November, a copy of which will be concurrently filed under TGOD’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

SpinCo Offering

As previously announced, in connection with the Spin-Off, SpinCo intends to complete a non-brokered private placement offering (the “SpinCo Offering“) of up to 20,000,000 subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts“) at a price of $0.50 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of up to $10,000,000. Please refer to the Company’s news release dated September 25, 2018 for additional details regarding the terms of the SpinCo Offering including the escrow release conditions thereunder (the “Escrow Release Conditions“).

There can be no assurance as to whether or when the SpinCo Offering will be completed or whether the Escrow Release Conditions will ever be met and the SpinCo Units underlying the Subscription Receipts released to the subscribers. If the Escrow Release Conditions are not satisfied in accordance with the terms of the Offering on or before December 31, 2018  (or such other date as the Company may determine), holders of the Subscription Receipts will be entitled to the return of their subscription amount without interest.

U.S. Securities and Tax Matters

As previously announced, the SpinCo Unit Warrants to be distributed pursuant to the Distribution will not be registered under the laws of any foreign jurisdiction, including the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act“). Consequently, no SpinCo Unit Warrants will be delivered to any registered or beneficial holder of TGOD shares who is, or who appears to TGOD or Computershare Trust Company of Canada, as custodian (the “Custodian“) to be, an individual or entity that qualifies as a U.S. Person under applicable U.S. securities laws (collectively, “U.S. Shareholders“). Such SpinCo Unit Warrants will be delivered by TGOD to the Custodian for sale by the Custodian on behalf of all U.S. Shareholders and U.S. Shareholders will receive from the Custodian their pro rata share of the cash proceeds from the sale of such SpinCo Unit Warrants, less any commissions, expenses and any applicable withholding taxes.

The SpinCo Unit Warrants, the SpinCo Units underlying the SpinCo Unit Warrants, and the Subscription Receipts are not expected to be qualified investments under the Tax Act for RRSPs, TFSAs or other registered plans as at the time of issuance and could therefore subject the plan or its annuitant or holder to adverse tax results. While additional details will be included in the Circular, affected TGOD shareholders, and potential subscribers of Subscription Receipts, are strongly encouraged to consult their tax advisors to determine the implications specific to their situation.

Further Information

$VVCIF 420 with CNW – Poll Suggests North Dakota Will Legalize Marijuana Next Month

A new opinion poll in North Dakota is suggesting that those in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana will take the day when the matter is voted upon during the midterm polls next month.

This ballot measure comes after the state legalized medical marijuana two years ago and implementation is set to start next year.

Measure 3 is expected to legalize cannabis for adult use without any limits on how much marijuana someone can possess or grow. The minimum age limit for this adult consumption has been set at 21. The measure also seeks to expunge all marijuana convictions and protect the state from liability claims originating from marijuana convictions.

The new opinion poll suggests that 51 percent of the voters will vote “yes” while 36 percent will vote “no” to the ballot measure. However, a significant fraction (13 percent) of the participants in the poll revealed that they hadn’t made up their mind regarding how they will vote. This group could well hold the key to determining which direction the vote eventually swings on voting day.

Demographics are also likely to play a role in the outcome of the vote. Voters older than 50 seem to be biased in favor of continued prohibition while those who are younger than 50 want prohibition to end.

Advocates are therefore hoping that younger voters turn up in massive numbers so that the measure sails through in November. The opinion poll conducted by The Kitchen Group had 57 percent of its respondents in the over 50 age group.

It is noteworthy that respondents were more likely to agree with Measure 3 if they were told that legalizing marijuana would go a long way towards combating the opiate crisis and leaving the meagre law enforcement resources to be directed to more serious issues.

North Dakota is unique from other states that have legalized cannabis in a sense that those who are advocating for the ballot measure don’t have big financiers on their side while the people opposed to the measure have invested massively to sway public opinion against recreational cannabis.

LegalizeND (Legalize North Dakota, a committee set up to campaign for legalization) has been working tirelessly to provide accurate information about marijuana in order to counter the propaganda spread by those opposed to legalization.

Observers say both sides of the ballot measure appear to be getting more funding from sources outside the state when compared to the campaign funds being generated locally. Those opposed to the measure have nearly got all their funding from one source (an anti-marijuana lobby group called SAM, or Smart Approaches to Marijuana). Cannabis companies like TransCanna and VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTCQX: VVCIF) can only watch from a distance as the trend of cannabis legalization unfolds.

$TGODF 420 with CNW – Congressman Releases Plan to Decriminalize Marijuana

A leading Democratic Congressman has revealed his plan to get legislation passed to end cannabis prohibition in case the Democrats take control of Congress after the midterm elections.

Rep. Earl Blumenauer echoed the sentiments of many around the country when he said that Congress was currently disconnected from the wishes of the different states and citizens around the country on the subject of cannabis.

He therefore sees the November polls as an opportunity for the Democrats to change that situation in case they get a majority in the House. Analysts believe that there is a big chance that the Democrats will regain their majority in Congress.

Congressman Blumenauer wrote a memo to the Democratic House leader outlining the different steps that should be followed in order to change the laws around marijuana. He wants his blueprint to pave the way for the Senate to feel the pressure and change its stance regarding marijuana.

The Senate is expected to remain under the control of the Republicans, and they have a history of blocking any legislation intended to end marijuana prohibition.

The Oregon Congressman wants the different Committees of the House to use the first six months after the polls to hold hearings at which the public and experts share their views on marijuana. He believes that every committee has power over some aspect of marijuana regulation.

For example, the House Judiciary Committee should work towards de-scheduling marijuana so that it is no longer a Schedule 1 substance at the federal level.

In the same vein, the House Financial Services Committee can also hold hearings on how the barriers stopping marijuana businesses from accessing banking services can be removed.

The Veterans Affairs Committee can also hold hearings on how equal and safe access to medical marijuana can be guaranteed for the nation’s veterans.

Congressman Blumenauer also gives a detailed plan outlining the different activities that should be completed within given timelines. For example, he hopes that by April, the different committees should start passing policies to narrow the gaps between state and federal marijuana policies.

His intention is that the end of 2019 should see a main bill ending federal marijuana prohibition being tabled for a vote by the entire House.

While this plan may sound like music to the ears of marijuana advocates, major hurdles still stand in its way. For starters, Senate isn’t likely to look favorably on any measures to legalize marijuana federally.

Secondly, Democratic Party House leaders aren’t hyped up about making marijuana decriminalization a priority for their first year in charge after the midterm polls. The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR) and The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) must be watching all these developments quietly from a distance waiting for prohibition to end so that they can enter the country in a big way.
