That’s why we launched NICI Snippets – a new series that gives you key insights into all the positive momentum happening in the cannabis market, so you have everything you need to make the most money possible from cannabis investing.

Danny Brody kicked us off last week, but there’s never a dull moment in this industry – and this week was no exception.

Between a record-breaking acquisition deal, more states ramping up legalization efforts, and Congressional leaders hinting towards federal legalization, we’ve got a lot to cover…

NICI Snippets: Week of May 13, 2021

  • 9 in 10 Americans Support Some Form of Cannabis Legalization: An April survey by Pew Research revealed 91% of Americans believe cannabis should be legal for medical use. Even in states where cannabis is still entirely illegal like North Carolina and South Carolina, support for medical cannabis legalization tops 70%. Not only that, but 60% of all Americans support legalizing recreational cannabis – including 47% of all Republicans. The bottom line is that full legalization is inevitable…and it’s that kind of overwhelming support that proves you’re in the right place at the right time as a cannabis investor, even if everyone else can’t always see it.
  • Conservative States Make Advances Towards Legalization: On Wednesday, the Nebraska state legislature debated legalizing cannabis for medical use, which would permit residents with qualifying conditions to possess 2.5 ounces of cannabis products, but not flower. Further south, the Louisiana House of Representatives just approved a bill to decriminalize possession of up to 14 grams of cannabis and sent the bill for consideration in the state senate. And Minnesota House of Representatives Majority Leader Ryan Winkler (DFL-MN) said he expects the House to approve a bill legalizing recreational cannabis this week, with significant Republican support. Pressure is mounting fast, and as more states move to legalize, you’ll want to make sure you’re ahead of the game.
  • Chuck Schumer Gives an Update on the Future of the SAFE Banking Act: Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said earlier this week that the Senate will not pass the SAFE Banking Act before broader federal legalization. Schumer has been working on a comprehensive federal cannabis reform bill for the last few months, which he plans to introduce “shortly.” The U.S. House of Representatives passed the SAFE Banking Act last month, but Schumer doesn’t plan to hold a vote on it anytime soon. You can read up on what the SAFE Banking Act could mean for cannabis investors here.

  1. In these difficult times acting on legislation to approve cannabis is a no brainer. It is job and tax$$$ producer for States and Country.
    Illegal sale and take $$$$$ will be curtailed . DO IT NOW ! Nn

  2. I left a message last week. And still would like an answer about Jushi. I still hold all my Jushi Stock but I am getting a uneasy feeling about the it. You said you thought Jushi stock would be $41.00 dollars by the end of the year. I know that was just a prediction and it’s not going to happen. But why haven’t you done a Deep Dive on them lately like all the rest of the best company’s. I would like some kind of information about Jushi. Thanks Don.
