Join us in Southern California
We'd like to invite you to the next SoCal Cannabis Marketing Association (CMA) meeting on November 9 in Santa Monica. A meeting of like-minded cannabis professionals, our second event features Josh Drayton, Deputy Director, California Cannabis Industry Association. This will be our first post-election gathering and depending on how the elections - most notably Proposition 64 turns out - you won't want to miss out on the spirited discussion and what's next. To sign up for the meeting go here.
New line of greenhouses
Ceres Greenhouse Solutions has created a new line of greenhouses to solve two daunting challenges faced by indoor cannabis growers: regulated odor control and escalating energy costs. Ceres' cannabis greenhouse designs build off the company's years of research and development creating 'self-heating' greenhouses for indoor vegetable production. The Ceres system pairs an energy-efficient greenhouse with their patent-pending 'self-heating' technology called a Ground to Air Heat Transfer (GAHT) system. With this combination, Ceres is poised to deliver the most energy-efficient and sustainable indoor growing solution available to cannabis growers to date. Read more here.
MassRoots and Aphria Inc. partner
Aphria Inc. and MassRoots, Inc., have announced they have entered into one of the first international partnerships between cannabis companies. Under the terms of the agreement, MassRoots will help build awareness of the Aphria brand amongst its Canadian user base. Aphria will compensate MassRoots a cash fee (in U.S. dollars) it refers.
Prop 64. - It's looking good (but you still need to vote!)
Multiple polls are available gauging voters' opinions on Prop 64 (The Adult Use of Marijuana Act). According to Freedom Leaf, to date, all of them show majority support for the measure, which allows those age 21 or older to possess up to one ounce of flowers and/or eight grams of cannabis concentrates, while also permitting indoor home grows of no more than six plants. A September poll conducted by CALSPEAKS Opinion Research Center at Sacramento State finds a whopping 71% of Californians leaning toward voting yes on the initiative. Another recent poll conducted by University of Southern California and the Los Angeles Times finds that 58% of voters plan to vote for the AUMA.
It goes without saying, though, that you still need to vote. Let's not get complacent. Read more here at Freedom Leaf.
