Cannabis Stocks Are on the Rise

MJ stock news
It is very pleasant to see that my investment in Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACB) was a wise decision back in the day. While looking over the financial market news I was pleasantly surprised to see my stock mentioned in the “Ones To Watch” by Investopedia (which by itself is something special). It was accompanied by Cronos Group Inc. (CRON), Canopy Growth Corp. (CGC) and a whole slew of pharmaceutical companies that are scattering to cash in on the Big Green Rush.

 

Honest Trailers: Thor

If it wasn’t for Natalie Portman, this movie would be alright. But she ruined it. 😦  Episode 15 of Season 2 of the Honest Trailers brings us the first installment of the Thor franchise.

The Number of My Twitter Followers is Growing

I know it has been a minute since I posted anything, so I wanted to do a short post and let you know how my quest for gaining more Twitter followers is going. It is the beginning of June, (actually, its more like the middle of June, but who is counting anyway) and I have been tweeting every day. I am gaining an average of 16 followers per day, and it is encouraging.

Now for the actual numbers.  As of right now, I have 4941 followers, and I am following 5422 people.

I am coming up on the first major milestone, the 5000 followers mark. I am not 100% positive about this, but I believe that once you hit 5000 followers, you will be looked more favorably by the Twitter algorithm, and you will get more exposure. In addition, I think that once you hit that 5k you can follow more people that follow you, which will help with the follower gaining process.

 

Happy Memorial Day 2019

People, don’t forget those other men and women in your life that fought for your country. Remember our Veterans !

And if you are partying somewhere today, with the family or with the friends, remember DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE.

Seriously, DUIs are not fun. They are expensive, and troublesome, and drain a lot of energy and money from you. Get a taxi, get an Uber. Get one of your sober friends to drive.

Be safe.

 

Twitter Numbers Update

How does time fly. It seems like just the other day I was putting the numbers up for April, and here we are, halfway through May. So the last few weeks have been very good for me on Twitter. I have gained a lot of followers and I’m getting a lot more interactions with people. As of May 17th 2019 I am following 5320 people, and I have 4842 followers.

As you can see the big improvement, or actually the big news, would be the fact that I am now able to follow more than 5000 people. I guess when I got to 4800 followers they decided to relax my limits a bit. So I am no longer a noob. Moving up in the world.

Check out my Twitter Followers Page to see how I’ve done so far.

Weed News: Mid-May 2019

Weed News

#WeedNews #cannabis #marijuana #2019

Welcome back to another installment of the #WeedNews. I went ahead and titled it May of 2019, but I may end up putting another post up about it before the end of the month. There has been a lot of development in the Cannabis World, especially around the United States. And there’s a lot of ground I wanted to cover. So we will say that this is for the first half of the month of May, 2019. Although it is a couple of days early before the actual mid month, I am going to go ahead and give you all the important information for the first couple of weeks.

First, on the federal level: Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer joined forces with the New York representative Hakeem Jeffries to put forth the second decriminalization bill in 2 years. At the heart of the bill would be the rescheduling of cannabis so the drug is no longer included on the federal list of controlled substances. That will allow States a lot more freedom in crafting their own legislation around marijuana. That will also alleviate some of the worries of current cannabis providers and users that they could be subject to Federal prosecution down the line for their connection to the plant. Of course the marijuana freedom and opportunity act does not legalize cannabis. Instead it allows those decisions to happen in state capitals across the country. Basically what they’re doing is letting every state decide what they want to do when it comes to cannabis. (You can find the full story if you CLICK HERE)

In Alabama, medical marijuana bill approved by the Senate. This legislation follows a movement in the State’s recent general attitude shift towards cannabis. In April, the sheriff of Alabama’s most populous county announced it would no longer be arresting people for non-violent misdemeanors, including small-scale marijuana possessions. Alabama is joining the list of the states across the US that is taking a huge load off of their Police Departments by decriminalizing possession of small amounts of cannabis. (Full Story)

And a huge story from Denver, Colorado. Without much noise the Denver legislative body passed an initiative to decriminalize the use and possession of psilocybin mushrooms. It’s not exactly cannabis, but hallucinogenic mushrooms are okay in my book. (Full Story)
