NEW YORK, November 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Today is not only a politically important day for the United States, but also a very crucial day for marijuana industries, as many states will hold referendums on the decision to legalize recreational and medical marijuana or not. It is estimated that roughly 30 percent of the US population in nine of the states will partake in the vote for the historical decision. ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (OTC: CIIX), Medicine Man Technologies, Inc. (OTC: MDCL), Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTC: CNBX), Cara Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: CARA), Insys Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: INSY).
According to a report by New Frontier and ArcView Market Research, the regulated cannabis market in the United States is projected to reach more than $7 billion this year. With many states voting today, all eyes will be focused on the Legalization of Cannabis.
Last week, ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX), announced that it will launch the world's first Chinese-language subscriber-only information service specifically focused on emerging growth companies in the Cannabis sector. The content of this service will cover the medical and recreational cannabis markets, the latest trends and technologies in the industry, and any investment opportunities in either private or publicly traded cannabis companies. The subscription service is expected to be launched after January 1st, 2017.
Just today ChineseInvestors.com Inc. announces that it will launch the world's first Chinese-language talk show specifically focused on investment opportunities in the Cannabis sector. The content of this talk show will follow the latest trends in both the medical and recreational cannabis markets, explore the promising growth of this new emerging industry, and identify select cannabis equities with the greatest potential for capital appreciation. The five-minute talk show is expected to be launched after December 1st, 2016, and it will be available on the company's official Youtube Channel as well as the Phoenix North America Chinese Channel, which is one of the most popular subscriber-only media platforms in the Chinese-speaking communities.
Warren Wang, founder and CEO of Chineseinvestors.com, commented: "Many Chinese investors still have a bias against the cultivation and sales of cannabis and we need to make them aware of the huge potential business opportunities within this industry. In addition, if recreational marijuana is legalized in California, an estimated $1 billion in new tax revenue would be directed toward specific drug use prevention programs and treatment, helping at-risk youth, law enforcement, and medical cannabis research…In 2015, 1.8 million Chinese tourists visited United States. We believe that many of these tourists may be curious about the California cannabis legislation and may come to the state to either experience the American recreational marijuana culture or invest in this emerging market. Our plan to launch a first of its kind Chinese-language talk show focused specifically on the cannabis sector will definitely assist the Chinese-speaking investor in overcoming the language barrier and also help cannabis retailers to attract more potential medical users."
