I am a private investor who has found a trading niche in the Cannabis sector. Stock trading brings me back to my old days as a sales account manager. I love the feeling of closing a good deal, or picking a winning stock. What I write about is simply for entertainment purposes only. I am not a professional. I encourage every reader to do their own due diligence. "Never regard study as a duty but as an enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later works belong." -- Albert Einstein

Attorney Daniel R. Lewis has worked and resided in the Central Florida area since 2006, after completing a 9 year term of service in the United States Air Force. He received his Masters in Arts from the University of Central Florida's History program in 2010, where his thesis work Thomas Jefferson and the Execution of the United States Indian Policy became a published book in 2011. Attorney Lewis went on to receive his Juris Doctorate degree from Florida A&M College of Law in Orlando, Florida, where he graduated Cum Laude while serving as Senior Editor of the Florida A&M Law Review, as well as Captain of the Florida A&M 2012-2013 ABA Tax Section Law Student Moot Court Tax Challenge team.
Attorney Lewis has published books, articles, and journal pieces in the fields of finance, history, and law. He is an ardent philanthropist, active legal reformer, and environmental supporter for the Central Florida area. Beginning in 2014, his water law research on the Wekiva Springs, River and Basin has been adopted as curriculum by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Environmental Cooperative Science Center.
After interning for the State Attorney's Office, 9th Judicial Circuit, and at a large corporation where he assisted in-house counsel on various employment, financial, and business requirements matters for Fortune 500 companies, he incorporated his own private practice. In his current practice, Attorney Lewis guides families and individuals through the estate planning process, provides in-house counsel services and contract reviews for Central Florida businesses, and handles other general practice matters.
Alan Brochstein, CFA, was the first investment professional to devote himself to sharing his observations about the cannabis industry from an investor's perspective publicly. He runs 420 Investor, a subscription-based due diligence platform for investors interested in the publicly-traded cannabis stocks and is also the founder of New Cannabis Ventures, a content aggregation site focused on investors and entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry.
Alan has worked in the securities industry since 1986, primarily with the responsibility for managing investments in institutional environments until he founded AB Analytical Services in 2007 in order to provide independent research and consulting to registered investment advisors. In addition to advising several different hedge funds and investment managers, including Friedberg Investment Management, where he participated as a member of its investment management committee, Alan was also a senior analyst for the independent research firm Management CV. In 2008, he began providing a first-of-its-kind subscription-based service for individual investors, Invest By Model, which offered two different portfolios that investors could replicate in their own accounts for $20 per month. Alan also offered The Analytical Trader at Marketfy, where he used fundamental and technical analysis in a disciplined process to offer specific trade ideas geared towards swing traders.
Alan launched www.420Investor.com in late 2013 as the premier source of information for "Green Rush" investors seeking to capitalize on the proliferation of legalized medical and recreational cannabis. In March 2014, Alan, who is a member of the National Cannabis Industry Association, began to focus solely on the cannabis sector. He launched www.NewCannabisVentures.com in late 2015.
