  • Buying The ‘Pharm - Why There Should Be Room For FSPM In Your Portfolio [View instapost]
    Great article. In my opinion, FusionPharm is in a good position in a lucrative market. I like that they aren't focused solely on the marijuana market but also on "food revolution" as a whole. I bought in at 5.35 hoping for another jump but I'm tempted to buy more at today's price.

    In FusionPharm's 'Notice of Late Financials' did it happen to say when it would finally be released?

    mu5k, I don't believe this is true. Why would a highly efficient enclosed grow room not be allowed to grow medical marijuana? And if there was a "certification" I'm sure it would not carry over to different countries. As the article above shows, FusionPharm does a lot of its business in Canada but also domestically.

  • Dissecting The Marijuana Market - Possible Approach Tactics [View instapost]
    Remix, valid point. I never thought of comparing the fact that cigarette dispensing machines do not currently exist so why would marijuana vending machines take off? Although cigarette vending machines did exist at one point... and I believe the only reason they stopped was because people realized the health concerns associated with cigarettes. Marijuana on the other hand, has only proven beneficial to ones health and is used by millions of people worldwide for both medicinal and recreational use.

    I can see how the US government would not want to advertise the sale of something that has be proven to cause cancer in users. However, I would like to hear their reasoning behind putting a ban on a high security machine that dispenses something that has been proven to fight cancer causing cells...

    I feel people struggle to see the potential of the marijuana industry because we have been systematically mislead by the government for the past 70 years to believe things that simply aren't true. I don't mean to go on a rant, I just think you cannot compare marijuana to alcohol, tobacco, or any prescription medication because it is simply not the same thing. We have been living in a society that currently classifies marijuana as a schedule 1 substance. The same category as Heroin.

    This is from the DEA website:

    "..Schedule I drugs are considered the most dangerous class of drugs with a high potential for abuse and potentially severe psychological and/or physical dependence. As the drug schedule changes-- Schedule II, Schedule III, etc., so does the abuse potential-- Schedule V drugs represents the least potential for abuse.

    Schedule I

    Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Schedule I drugs are the most dangerous drugs of all the drug schedules with potentially severe psychological or physical dependence. Some examples of Schedule I drugs are:

    heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymeth... (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote

    Schedule II

    Schedule II drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a high potential for abuse, less abuse potential than Schedule I drugs, with use potentially leading to severe psychological or physical dependence. These drugs are also considered dangerous. Some examples of Schedule II drugs are:

    cocaine, methamphetamine, methadone, hydromorphone (Dilaudid), meperidine (Demerol), oxycodone (OxyContin), fentanyl, Dexedrine, Adderall, and Ritalin"

    According to the DEA, cocaine is less addictive than pot???
    To me, this classification system doesn't add up and is proof that what we used to know about marijuana was not entirely true.

    etaydinkol, I'm not sure how long each company has been in business but I imagine most are fairly new.

    amjoda, yes please enlighten us. Should we stay away so you can buy up all the stock?

    remix, I almost hope this fraudulent talk causes the price of Medbox to go down so I can buy in. I'm imagining these Medboxes are going to be the go to method for purchasing cannabis...Just wait for Washington to get going too. The first recreational marijuana license was issued in Washington on March 5th, 2014.
    And I'm glad you agree about $PHOT. I like what I hear about them and the fact that they already have 7 stores makes me less worried. They also have some interesting products like their SG Sensors system.
