    All the author had to do was read the SEC filings:

    Here is the proper share structure.

  • VAPE Holdings: $190-Million Market Cap With No Revenues; Likely To Drop 90%; $1 Price Target [View article]
    This article is poorly researched. Even if the incorrect market cap were true, GWPH, MDBX and CANV all have larger market caps. So, it's not the 2nd largest. In fact, the market cap at the closing price near 16.50 is no more than $190mm. This assumes that the company meets the $8mm sales requirement in order for all 5mm shares of the HIVE Ceramics transaction to be awarded.

    What a nice argument to list a bunch of SEC halts. Please explain how that relates to VAPE.

    This article has a materially incorrect statement. The number of shares is 11.5mm if all potential equity is awarded related to the HIVE Ceramics transaction

    Medicine Man is the real deal. No clue why they would be involved with something called "Chinese Investors"... I will have to look into that one.

    Your write-up of CARA is very good, but I don't think it is a marijuana play. As far as CANV, I urge readers to review the 10-K just filed, as there are many red flags. I had already estimated this to be the case, but now the market services will pick up on the share-count rising to 32.4mm. The market cap, then, is much higher than you indicate. Further, the company stated that it will burn cash in 2014 and needs to raise another $15mm (I estimate that it will sell stock at $1.50 after having raised $10mm at $1 per share over the past several months). Public investors are making a massive mistake in my opinion. The business model is doomed as well in my view.

  • Marijuana Stocks: Canadian Schwag Or A Stealth Crusader? [View article]
    Should investors bid up food companies? Is hemp-based food really something that should excite anyone from an investment perspective?

  • Full Circle Capital Has Both Kinds Of Green - 90% Upside On A Call Option In Advanced Cannabis Solutions [View article]
    FULL is a $7 stock with no CANN. CANN had the potential to double the stock over time. Painful, but not so surprising to see the reaction. As the market better understands that the issues aren't internal to CANN, it should be back up.

    The answer is the use of the word "affiliate", which means 10% owner

    Not surprising, but probably not right but wrong. We'll see

    My understanding is that it may not even be as bad as I suggested. In any case, it doesn't appear to be negative fundamentally for CANN.

    Southgent, I believe that this relates to someone from the former company (ProMap) - they violated securities laws apparently by selling too much stock.
