• Former CMO at Anheuser-Busch, Chris Burggraeve is betting on weed these days. He’s made a large investment in the sector and now sits on the advisory board of the GreenRush Group. GreenRush wants to be the Amazon for weed.
    • As of the time of this video marijuana remained illegal on the federal level
    • However, it is legal for medical use in 29 states + DC &&& legal for recreational use in 7 states + DC
    • Marijuana and it’s non-thc cousin hemp can be used for boundless products and used to be in the early 20th From cannibinoids being used to treat epilepsy to hemp rope, be sure to check out a documentary on marijuana called “Culture High” that catalog’s marijuana’s history in the United States.
    • Many peer-reviewed studies have also proven Marijuana not to be the gateway drug we were told it was growing up. The Reagan war on drugs professed Marijuana as the ultimate gateway into cocaine, crack, and heroine. This has also been disproven multiple times through scientific examination since the 1990’s.
    • And when it comes to President Trump’s opioid crisis declaration, recent, ongoing studies in states where recreational marijuana is legal are showing opioid use is much lower in those states.
    • Burggraeve is betting that now is the time to invest on this industry, before it’s legal across the nation – HE’S CALLING IT THE NEW CRAFT BEER.

  • Jeff Session was in front of the house of representatives today answering questions about Russian involvement. I watched the entire 4 hour video and here are some thoughts

 

  1. First, it was clear that Republicans were going to ask Jeff Sessions about Hilary Clinton while Democrats would ask primarily about Russia and secondarily about African-American rights
    1. Democrats often didn’t use their time wisely, for example, one representative – Mr. Cohen – focused on Sessions’ stance on Marijuana.
  2. Jeff Sessions can’t seem to answer any questions with any other answer other than “I don’t recall… <insert clips>
    1. 1:56:30 : x2 I don’t recall
    2. 1:58:42: I don’t recall
    3. 1:59:30: I don’t recall blah blah blah
    4. 2:06:49: I don’t recall
    5. 2:07:50: I don’t recall
    6. 2:08:40: I don’t believe so
    7. 2:09:53: I don’t recall
    8. 2:22:12: I don’t recall
    9. 3:58:12: I don’t recall that meeting
  3. This guy was having fun… 3:10:40 – 3:12:30…
    1. but even better, he started asking questions?!?!? 3:48:50…
    2. and even better that that … while not talking about Russia, Republican representative Farenthold did hold Sessions feet to the fire… 3:49:44…
    3. he also asked about SAVE (stop abusive and violent environments) and how Sessions was supposed to be the “People’s Attorney, not the president’s attorney.” This point went right over session’s head, but Farenthold ended up being the best Republican questioner proving no one should judge a book by THIS cover.
    4. Representative Jackson Lee was trying to make a point and needed her aid to hold up a sign, but…, 2:17:00 – 2:24:00: This aid does not know how to hold up… or down… or up… or down these signs…
    5. At one point Jeff Sessions is asked if the President has the authority to fire anyone in the FBI or on the special counsel investigating Russian involvement. Cannot give an opinion, but should have as an Attorney General. 3:06:52 -3:07:40 BOOM!
  4. Sessions got stumped a couple times…
    1. 3:20:40 – Mr. Sessions fumbles looking for his talking points…
    2. 3:56:25: duh, oh, duh, oh…
    3. 2:08:26 – 2:08:42: good q&A
    4. 2:09:04 – 2:09:17: good q&a, I don’t recall
    5. 2:44.48 – 2:45:47: time warner and at&t deal
  5. The sad truth… what a bad example of leadership put on display for the American public.

The Quick Three:

 

  • The TRUMP DUMP:
    • Now it’s time for the trump dump.
    • Today, after Trump’s irregular trip through Asia, Democrats voiced concerns over Trump’s mental state with his hand on the nuclear trigger.
    • There was a congressional hearing on capital hill Tuesday to question a decades-old presidential authority to deploy nuclear weapons.
    • “We are concerned that the President of the United States is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic that he might order a nuclear weapons strike that is wildly out of step with US national security interests,” said Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut
    • The meeting was initially called because rumors are flying around that The US was contemplating a preemptive nuclear strike on North Korea based on intelligence reports.
    • Nothing came of the meeting… just like any other get together in congress…
    • So what did Trump have to say in response?
      • “Just returned from Asia after 12 very successful days. Great to be home!”

    • But talks about NUCLEAR anything should scare the crap out of you!!!!
    • Contemplate this… Over 14k nukes exist today.
    • Nine nations are known to have nuclear weapon capabilities: US, Russia, China, France, Britian, Israel, Pakistan, India, North Korea
    • ICBMs travel at 15k miles per hour
    • The US WWII nuclear attacks killed over 200k people with each bomb yielding 15 kilotons of explosive power.
    • The largest known nuclear bomb was created 50 years ago by Russia, called the Tsar Bomba & has 50,000 kilotons of explosive power
