    Author’s reply » I sent this to Derek on 11/27:

     

    "By the way, whenever you think it's appropriate, my members would love to hear a presentation"

     

    We mutually agreed to a date shortly thereafter.

    Author’s reply » Well, I do think that one can read positively into the fact that he is willing to face the public, though that is just my own opinion and certainly not based on anything other than a guess.

    Let's see if he is willing to give some concrete facts on the MJ side of his business.

     

    Around the 18th the license applications for Washington should be handed in.

     

    Don't get me wrong, I like the produce plan, but let's be honest, that's not the reason I chose to invest.

     

    Is produce still plan B and MJ plan A? And what's the status.

     

    Maybe Derek will address these things with you since you have the 420 platform and not the lettuce platform :-)

    Alan,

    Hotstocked claims paid promotions. Could you ask Derek about this tonight?

     

    I don't see the company doing such a thing.

    Author’s reply » I already did. He said that TRTC had nothing to do with it. I have found these types of promotions at other MJ stocks too, like PHOT and MCIG. In all these cases, it appears that newsletter promoters are just engaging in ticker jockeying, etc.

    I saw the promotions come up in the beginning of the week, didn't think much off it until this site claimed they were paid for.

    Great work Alan,

     

    Let's see if people finally get the TRTC plan now.

     

    I will watch the replay again to, because by the time I finished up my notes and all, it was 03.00AM local over here. I might have missed some tiny details.

    Yep, that's why I scribble down some hardly readable notes during the webinar that I have to decipher afterwards :-)
