Investing in #Marijuana and #Hemp #Stocks; The Market Gets Bigger Following Election
November 9, 2016 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, a global news source and investor resource issues an updated directory and news alert for Marijuana and Hemp Stocks following the US election and the legalization in new States.
Approved: California voters approved recreational marijuana
Approved: Massachusetts also voted for recreational marijuana
Approved: Nevada approved recreational marijuana
Approved: Florida voters passed a constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana
Approved: North Dakota voted to legalize medical marijuana
Expert Michael Weiner notes,"With several states legalizing recreational and medicinal marijuana last night many investors, banks, and entrepreneurs are wondering about how to navigate the newly opened legal waters to cash in on cannabis. "
"The really interesting thing is that now that California and Massachusetts have legalized, the industry in each state will generate huge sums of cash that will dwarf the amounts currently generated by the cannabis industry. I think this will cause the banking industry to push Congress to provide a legislative solution to the banking issues for the cannabis industry. It is one thing to ignore the millions generated in Colorado, it is entirely a different thing to ignore the tens of billions that the California cannabis industry will generate. The big national banks will want to deposit those funds and put those funds to work by making loans," Weiner says.
Michael Weiner is a partner in the international law firm Dorsey & Whitney in its Denver office. Weiner has been working with companies and investors successfully over the past year in Colorado and other states and can explain the legal landscape of the cannabis industry. Weiner is a leading legal expert in the financing and investment arena surrounding the cannabis industry.

Pharmacyte Bioetch (OTC:PMCB) (Formerly Nuvilex, Inc) is a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on developing and preparing to commercialize treatments for cancer and diabetes based upon a proprietary cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology known as Cell-in-a-Box® This unique and patented technology will be used as a platform upon which treatments for several types of cancer, including advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer, and diabetes are being built. PharmaCyte Biotech's treatment for pancreatic cancer involves low doses of the well-known anticancer prodrug ifosfamide, together with encapsulated live cells, which convert ifosfamide into its active or "cancer-killing" form. These capsules are placed as close to the cancerous tumor as possible to enable the delivery of the highest levels of the cancer-killing drug at the source of the cancer. This "targeted chemotherapy" has proven remarkably effective in past clinical trials. In addition, PharmaCyte Biotech is working towards improving the quality of life for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer and on treatments for other types of solid cancerous tumors. PharmaCyte Biotech is also developing treatments for cancer based upon chemical constituents of marijuana known as cannabinoids. In doing so, PharmaCyte Biotech is examining ways to exploit the benefits of Cell-in-a-Box® technology in optimizing the anticancer effectiveness of cannabinoids, while minimizing or outright eliminating the debilitating side effects usually associated with cancer treatments. This provides PharmaCyte Biotech the rare opportunity to develop "green" approaches to fighting deadly diseases, such as cancer of the pancreas, brain and breast, which affect hundreds of thousands of individuals worldwide every year.
