Green Market Report's Marijuana Money December 21, 2018

The President was set to sign the 2018 Farm Bill on Thursday with the signing time repeatedly pushed back and after a long speech about the border wall, he finally signed it. And so thus ends hemp prohibition and it is legal.  

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo presented his 2019 agenda on Monday morning to the New York Bar Association and it included his plan to legalize adult use cannabis. “Let’s legalize the adult use of recreational marijuana once and for all,” he said. There have been estimates that legalizing cannabis could bring in an additional $1.3 billion in annual tax revenues with $336 million for New York City alone.

Aleafia Health Inc. (TSXV: ALEF) is acquiring Emblem Corp. (TSXV: EMC, OTCQX: EMMBF)  are in an all-stock deal valued at approximately $173.2 Million. The combination will create Canada’s largest medical cannabis clinic network with 40 clinics and education centers.

Tilray Canada Ltd. a subsidiary of Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY) entered into an agreement with Sandoz AG, which is a part of the Novartis group, to increase the availability of high-quality medical cannabis products across the world. Tilray has also signed a binding letter of intent (LOI) to purchase hemp-derived CBD isolate from LiveWell Canada Inc. (CSE: LVWL), which will be sourced from the United States and Canada.  Hemp CBD is estimated to be a $22 billion market in the U.S. and finally, big brewer AB InBev, and Tilray, announced a partnership to research non-alcohol beverages containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).

The war between Terra Tech Corp. (OTC: TRTC) and its investor Heidi Loeb Hegerich is heating up. The first attack began with a lawsuit filed last week by the Reno, Nevada woman claiming fraud. Loeb Hegerich entered into a partnership with Terra Tech and became a co-owner of a Blum dispensary in midtown Reno. Loeb made some 50 different claims in the case and ultimately is unhappy that she hasn’t received any money back from her investment. Terra Tech said it will defend itself vigorously against the meritless claims filed in the State of Nevada. Golden Leaf Holdings Ltd. (CSE: GLH) (OTCQB: GLDFF)  said that it has decided not to pursue a potential transaction with Terra Tech Corp.

Cannabis loyalty software company springbig completed its latest Series A fundraise for $5 million bringing its total amount raised to $11.3 million.

    Prohibition is over.
    I own 120 acre of some of the best farm land in my county. I want to plant it.
    I am looking at the natural progression of industrial hemp’s growth. I have come to the conclusion that my investment strategy will roughly follow this progression. Both in the agronomy and market investments.
    There are grey areas having said that; Number one on my list is genetics. Reliably high cbd content with reliably low thc is what is required. Number 2 is machinery. Number 3 is marketing.
    CGC invested in a Colorado genetic seed company the day the House passed the 2018 farm bill.
    Which one?
    I haven’t found it yet. Let’s make some money.

    Hello, just a quick question for you, If you had 10K to invest into the cannabis market, would it be in the U.S or would it be in Canada, thank you for your input!

      The better long term (5 years) play would be the U.S.
