The Billion Dollar Cannabis Industry Debate - Does Branding Really Matter in the Future for Cannabis Products?
On one side of the fence, many MSOs and invested VC’s are telling the world branding matters and brands are the future of cannabis. On the other side of the argument are digital tech guys and analytics guys saying that every survey ever done on consumer habits in Canada and North America shows that branding doesn’t matter to  cannabis consumers that much.  The most famous survey of Canadian consumers found out that most consumers can’t remember what they bought, what color package they bought, or how much they used.  They do remember the price point and if the product achieved the results, they wanted for the price paid, ie, see the Budweiser example above.

Marijuana State of Emergency - Oregon County Declares State of Emergency over Illegal Pot Grows
Bootleg cannabis farmers pretend to be legal hemp farmers when they first set up shop in the state. The majority of these operations use Josephine and Jackson counties as a base for their illegal black market activities. They grow high THC amounts of marijuana, harvest, and sometimes process the buds, after which they sell within and outside the state.

Will US Grown Marijuana Even Exist in 10 Years?
One new up-and-coming in the international cannabis scene is Colombia.  South American countries create a nice “sweet spot” for growing cannabis due to their moist climate, lack of Winters, and cheap labor forces.  The stunning numbers I saw during Luis Merchan’s presentation at Benzinga showed that his company, Flora, can grow a gram of cannabis for $0.60. That is before Colombia gets a few years under their belt in experience, better lights, seeds, soil, and techniques.  The cost to grow a gram of marijuana in North America is between $1.50 and $2.35. Public reports show Canadian company Aprhia spends $1.85 to grow one gram of marijuana, while Tilray spends $2.36 a gram of produced flower.

CannaFarma Investment Scam - Investors Defrauded Out of $4 Million by a Fake CEO
The indictment explains that CanaFarma's alleged scheme can be traced back to October 2018. In 2018, the duo, via a straw purchaser, initiated acquiring a dormant Canadian shell company. A few months later, Palatnik and Fargesen reached out to individuals identified as "Co-conspirator 1" (CC-1) and "Co-conspirator 2," (CC-2). The filing explains that Palatnik and Fargesen informed CC-1 and CC-2 that they had a pool of investors overseas who would fund their idea. The idea was to create a company founded on hemp-derived products. And as soon as they get the funds, they will be up and running.
