    Hey it's Papa, not Paw Paw, was that some kind of a doggy joke?

    I have as much right to waste everyone's time as you do, there's no restrictions on this board that I'm aware of. Besides, you like some of my posts remember...."Good info Abuelo, thanks"...geez, make up your mind...to post or not to post, that is the question!

    Conspiracy theories? That's exactly what I was doing, you nailed it. Isn't that what all this pump and dump, fraudulent financial reports, amateurish accounting, stock manipulation...is all about. That's the cover theme for this story that's been repeated numerous times by these two writers.

    I simply used the methodology of Alan and Ashraf to get a reaction. To my surprise, they didn't bite but you took the whole bait. Here's how it works: You create a hypothetical idea (like mjna pump and dump), you claim how it might be possible and give reasons suggesting how they may be doing it. In the end you say you might be wrong and that you really didn't accuse anyone of anything, you're leaving the conclusions up to the readers.

    Before you make the disclaimer you've planted enough doubt and inuendo to scare a lot of people. Politicians do it all the time...if we cut taxes you won't get the same police or fire protection...

    I would like to chat more but Oliver Stone needs my input for his next picture "Wall Street, Money Never Sleeps II"

    Oh by the way, I don't pass my dutchie to people I don't know, sorry!

    Positive marijuana news=more likely the industry grows=more investment dollars=more and more expansion=more opportunities for mjna (and others)=more profits=higher pps. Simple!

    I must say you've hurt my feelings that you don't appreciate my contributions. Some readers do, since I've received quite a few "likes" and even a complement from Sparkt_99.

    Alan deserves all the credit. In the recent excellent article "Marijuana and Legalization - The Complex Relationship" Alan numerous times brought up CannaVest and mjna financials even though that was clearly NOT the subject. So I thought if you don't mind your good friend veering from topic, it would be OK for me too?

    One possible scenario is that Ashraf and Alan have friends who are day trading this stock. They can beat it down between PRs shorting the stock on the way down and then buy the cheap shares back knowing that mjna pops big time after PRs. The recent pps history clearly shows this would be extremely profitable. MJNA jumped over 50% after they successfully drove the pps down 60% starting in February.

    To be fair they both CLAIM they do not affect share price, have no positions and do not short the stock.That doesn't mean someone else isn't doing it? This could be one way to explain the relentless attention they pay to mjna on this forum.

    Full disclosure: I am not accusing them of doing this and I have no information backing up the hypothetical example. Just trying to understand the motivation for releasing a negative article almost daily and then almost gloating in the fact the stock could go to ZERO!

    I have personally posted the credentials of Anthony Imbimbo (CPA) (who Alan says does amateurish work) and Michael Corrigan (Attorney) who have both been hired by mjna and are not associated with the company other than the services they've been hired to perform. They have their own businesses to run and their own reputations to protect. It's far fetched to believe they've had the wool pulled over their eyes like mjna investors (or as Ashraf likes to call us "DOLTS")

    Just something to ponder as we read the constant repetitive banter and watch the stock price fluctuate to extremes.

    For some families with children who suffer from rare seizure disorders, a new form of medical marijuana is proving to be a life-changing treatment.

    Marijuana legalization in Colorado "appeared to be in serious trouble" Monday night, according to The Associated Press. But the late-night effort fell short.
    A bipartisan group of state senators late on Monday raced a midnight deadline to possibly repeal retail cannabis legalization. It was a last-moment plan, because lawmakers on Wednesday conclude their work for the year.
    Facing the threat of a filibuster and being outvoted in the House, state senators gave up the repeal plans and adjourned Monday just before 10 p.m. without advancing the repeal, the AP reports.

    Tripp Keber, managing director of Dixie Elixirs & Edibles was asked to speak to the Denver City Council yesterday afternoon. He spoke about how patients benefit from smoke free medical marijuana delivery methods including edibles. We believe that better informed leadership will produce sensible regulations.

    I go back to articles where I am wrong (and right too sometimes) with updates.

    Kind of like revising financials from an audit? Good for you Alan and good for MJNA, bringing out the truth is always positive!

    “Marijuana has widely recognized medical benefits, and it poses fewer and less severe side effects than many narcotics currently being prescribed,” said Dan Riffle, deputy director of government relations for the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP). “If a doctor believes his or her patient would benefit from using medical marijuana, that patient should be able to obtain and use it safely and legally.”

    John W. Huffman, the ‘JWH’ behind many synthetic cannabinoids, notably JWH-018, says we should consider legalising cannabis as a way to counter the problems with synthetic cannabinoids. “The synthetics are harmful, they’re dangerous,” he says, “and marijuana is not really dangerous.”

    Ten members of the House Judiciary Committee have agreed to form an Over-Criminalization Task Force to review the expansion of the federal criminal code and make recommendations for paring it down. There are roughly 4,500 federal crimes on the law books, with new ones being added at a rate of about 50 a year.

    Among possible topics for the task force are federal drug laws and sentences in general and federal marijuana prohibition in particular.

    The Colorado state house yesterday voted to approve SB13-241, a bill that would legalize the farming and production of “industrial hemp” within the state. If signed into law, the bill would effectively nullify the unconstitutional federal ban on hemp production in Colorado. The House voted unanimously on a slightly amended version of a bill already approved by the State Senate, 34-1. The legislation will now go back to the Senate, which is widely expected to send the legislation to Governor Hickenlooper for a signature.

    The federal government has no constitutional authority to ban the production of this industrial plant, but has persisted in preventing its domestic production. The result? Products with hemp that are readily available at your local grocery store must be imported from another country – resulting in higher costs for you and fewer farming jobs in America. The United States is currently the world’s #1 importer of hemp, which is used in food products, clothing, oil and much more. The top exporters are China and Canad

    Isn't it a positive that they revised? Admitting mistakes is transparency in my book! I agree with IIS, as Imbimbo goes back through the records it's his job to revise and get the books in order. Again, they don't even have to audit, that alone says a lot!

    Imbimbo taught auditing at the University of California, San Diego and was a Staff Auditor at Earnst and Young. MJNA made a good choice here and I for one am looking forward to the forthcoming audited results. It does not bother me if there's revisions, to the contrary, it impresses me!
