    BTW, is "the rules" you mention in your post above the inability to short OTC stocks easily for most "small guys"?

    Thanks for this info. If nothing else, it's reassuring, and I guess the volume and price data make sense in light of this.

    For future reference, how does one find daily short interest data for OTC stocks? The otcmarkets.com only provides data every 15 days.

    I'll take a look at the short interest tomorrow when the new data is published, and see when the next time to buy is.

  • Cannabis Science Masters The Art Of Shareholder Dilution [View article]
    In addition, the White House's official marijuana page (http://1.usa.gov/WJvJGk) has changed recently, and I believe this has gone largely unnoticed. Regarding research, they say:

    "This Administration joins major medical societies in supporting increased research into marijuana’s many components, delivered in a safe (non-smoked) manner, in the hopes that they can be available for medical professionals to legally prescribe if proven safe and effective. The U.S. Federal Government is the single largest funder of research on marijuana in the world."

    Alan,

    As a follow-up to my recent reply, Section 4 of the Marijuana Patient Protection Act in the US House contains the following wording:

    "SEC. 4. ADMINISTRATION OF REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS RELATED TO MARIJUANA RESEARCH.

    Not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Attorney General shall delegate responsibility under section 303(f) of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 823(f)) for control over access to marijuana for research into its potential therapeutic and medicinal uses to an entity of the Executive Branch that is not focused on researching the addictive properties of substances. That entity shall take appropriate actions to ensure that an adequate supply of marijuana is available for therapeutic and medicinal research."

    If enacted, this would open up serious US marijuana research at the university and industrial level. We await their decision with bated breath.

    Good point Alan. The policies on serious marijuana research are distinct from those written to address medical marijuana use. For example, the current bill in the US House (http://1.usa.gov/1487apA) addressing medical marijuana doesn't directly address use of marijuana for research purposes. Stanford University has a nice page updated in May 2012 detailing the current challenges in authorized marijuana research (http://stanford.io/YGCcx5). Another complication in this research is the recent press and restrictions (http://bit.ly/1487cOj) on the use of synthetic compounds that are chemically similar to the cannabinoids and THC that are produced endogenously by the plant. An example of a synthetic cannabinoid is the WIN family of aminoalkylindoles (for example http://bit.ly/YGCcx9), which have similar pharmacological effects to cannabinoids and THC in vivo. The concerns of the UN's ODC outlined in the link above only make it harder for serious researchers to acquire and study the effects of these compounds and their downstream targets in living organisms. Most interesting to me would be to dig into the federal and state legislation being inacted to see what allowances there are for legitimate research. It seems to me that CBIS and companies like them need this clarification.

    The unfortunate reality in the short term for people like me who are long CBIS is that these are facts. I intend to hold my position, wait for more policy change, and more promising financial results. Thanks for the thoughtful work Alan.
