Bottom Feeders Just Can’t Get Any Respect

Having thick skin is a necessary asset when investing in the cannabis sector. Pity the over-the-counter small investor cautiously entering the cannabis sector, either the long-time advocate or someone who knows the product well from a personal standpoint.

It is bad enough that they have to endure the stigma of the stereotypical stoner, still-questionable legality or ignorance-induced bias from observers, they also have to endure the derision of the investing world, especially long-term investors, who consider penny stocks nothing more than day-trading fodder for gamblers. Not to mention the sector also attracts opportunists who exploit its less-restrictive financial reporting requirements, juggle their books or set up outright scams.

As Marijuana Rules Take Shape, A Focus on Local Control

The state has a year until it begins issuing licenses for businesses selling recreational marijuana. Between now and then, the Alcoholic Beverages Control Board is home to a new body developing regulations: the Marijuana Control Board.

The rules taking shape are modeled on commercial alcohol sales, with regulators hoping to learn from past mistakes in Washington and Colorado.

On Thursday, ABC Board Director Cynthia Franklin spoke to members of the Anchorage Assembly in a packed conference room. The state codes concerned with growing, selling, and managing marijuana are expected to be done by November. And similar to Title 4 dealing with alcohol, the emerging ordinances are based on lots of local control.

There has been much speculation from the financial world in the market potential of the MMPR (Canada’s Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulation), with investors encouraged by Health Canada’s estimates of some 450,000 potential patients by 2024.

Inside One Of California's Largest Medical Marijuana Bakeries

A Bay Area company is catering to medical marijuana users statewide who have a sweet tooth.

It’s not the eggs that make these pastries special, though there are eggs along with sugar, chocolate and flour. These pastries are high in calories, high in carbs, but these are high in potency, too.

“We pretty much make our cookies like you would any other bakery, any other cookie, we just have a little bit of green in our butter,” said Danny Nunan, a baker at Korova Edibles.

The Bay Area’s Korova Edibles is making a name for itself in medicinal marijuana circles for the amount of pot it puts in its products, for having a trained pastry chef with culinary credentials, and a respected lab that works to make sure doses are accurate.
