Today's podcast overview/transcript:
Good morning and welcome to another Investorideas.com potcast - looking at cannabis news, stocks to watch as well as insights from thought leaders and experts.
Today's potcast was sponsored by Kelowna based Lexaria Bioscience Corp trading on the CSE under symbol LXX and on the OTC as LXRP. Lexaria has developed a new disruptive drug delivery platform: DehydraTECH The Company's patented technology changes the way Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients ("APIs") enter the body orally:
1) Masks unwanted tastes - eliminates the need for sugar-filled edibles.
2) Reduces time of onset - effects are felt within 15-20 min vs. 60-120 min.
3) Avoids first-pass liver metabolism
4) Increases bio-absorption by 5-10X
The Company's DehydraTECH™ technology is patent-protected for multiple APIs: Cannabidiol (CBD), Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen, Nicotine and Fat soluble vitamins.

But first, with Canada's legalization fast approaching, a new poll from YouGov Omnibus finds that nearly two in five Americans (38%) say that the new law will have a positive effect on Canada's future. Less than a quarter (24%) say that legalization will negatively affect the nation and a fifth (20%) say it will have no effect.
Positive perception of Canada's legalization of marijuana is highest among those who live in the West (41%). This comes as little surprise, given that six states in this region have legalized both recreational and medical marijuana.
By party affiliation, nearly one in two Republicans (49%) believe that legalization will have a negative impact on Canada's future. One in three independents (36%) and one in two Democrats (50%) hold that the matter will have a positive effect, the leading response for both parties.
Optimism for Canada's new legislation appears to increase with income level. Starting with those who earn less than $40,000 a year, 36% have a positive perception of the law. That figure increases to 38% when those who earn $40,000 to $80,000 are asked and culminates at 41% when those who earn over $80,000 are examined.
