Another strong day in the books for Vinergy Resources (VNNYF) as the stock gained 11% today, May 2, 2017. With this type of action, everyone should be starting to take notice and paying attention. Volume was again at record levels which could be signaling that investors are starting to act ahead of the possible completed acquisition of MJ Biopharma. VNNYF has now gained 23% since we re-initiated coverage on the company just two days ago.

As we pointed out earlier, trading for Vinergy Resources on the Canadian exchange under symbol VIN.CN has been halted pending a fundamental change in the company. Through corporate announcements and pure logic it is our assumption that the fundamental change is the completion of the MJ Biopharma acquisition. The hype and speculation that helped skyrocket Vinergy’s stock nearly 200% earlier this year (when we first initiated coverage on the company), could finally be coming to fruition. The hype that drove investors wild just a few months ago could soon be reality.

While trading of Vinergy in Canada under VIN.CN is halted, trading on the U.S. exchange through symbol VNNYF is picking up in a huge way. We have seen record volume days this week and a consistent, steady climb in share price. It would appear that momentum is in our favor as speculation once again starts to swirl around chat rooms and message boards about what the MJ Biopharma acquisition could mean for VNNYF and its shareholders. For more on why it’s significant and what investors should know about the acquisition, click here.

What a Scientific Advisory Board Addition Means for the Company’s Cannabis Initiative

Vinergy recently made a jaw dropping addition to their Scientific Advisory Board that seems to be in line with an MJ Biopharma acquisition. The company recently added John Simon, a senior member of the American Society for Quality, a certified quality auditor and registered quality assurance professional. Mr. Simon has been directly involved with FDA and Health Canada audits of drug manufacturers, testing facilities, and clinical sites.

Simon assists companies with both site and product licenses. He has helped several companies obtain, renew, and maintain in good standing Drug Establishment Licenses, Medical Device Establishment Licenses, Natural and Non-prescription Site Licenses, and Licenses to Cultivate and Distribute under the Marihuana for medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR which is now under the ACMPR).

He has extensive experience when it comes to product submissions to both the FDA and Health Canada. Simon will play a key role in driving the company’s cannabis product and technology initiatives. His work could be critical to MJ Biopharma’s long-term strategy of conducting studies out of a state-of-the-art lab focused on identifying specific cannabinoid isolates for targeted therapeutic purposes.

John Simon could be VNNYF’s bridge to the FDA and Health Canada hopefully ensuring a smooth approval and licensing process for the company. We could be speculating here a bit but it certainly seems like the addition of John Simon was carefully calculated by management and could return tremendous value for the company.

Marijuana Laws Could Save Taxpayers A Billion Dollars

Last year, a study in Health Affairs by a father-daughter pair of public policy researchers found that Medicare prescriptions for things like painkillers, antidepressants, and anti anxiety medications dropped sharply in states that introduced a medical marijuana program. The implication? Offered the choice between taking medication prescribed by a doctor and self-medicating with marijuana, many older patients opted for the marijuana.

Republican Attorney Pushing To Reschedule Marijuana To Schedule III

Matt Gaetz is a 34-year-old attorney who, while in the Florida legislature, pushed for accelerated executions and blocked any revision of the stand-your-ground law following Trayvon Martin’s shooting death. He now represents most of the Florida Panhandle in Congress. Most of us would call those solid conservative bona fides “textbook reactionary,” but back at home in Gaetz’s First Congressional District, they’re local mores. His district is so solidly Republican, it’s an island of dark red floating in a less-red sea.

Could Marijuana Enhance Your Stamina?

There is no other state in the union where hiking 14,000-foot mountains is an unexceptional hobby, or where most of the population understands the phrase “baggin’ ’teeners.” On top of being a state filled with trim bodies, we are also a state full of trim marijuana. But how does recreational marijuana, a substance typically associated with lazy, pot-bellied stoners eating potato chips on bean bag couches, fit into our self-image of a state filled with sexy hiker bodies with abs as solid as the rocks we climb?

Marijuana may contain a chemical that can help people fight their addiction to cigarettes, according to a study out of Britain. Researchers at the University College London published an article in the journal Addictive Behaviors that discovered that a non-psychoactive chemical in cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD), given via inhaler could dramatically reduce the number of cigarettes consumed by smokers that wanted to kick the habit.

There is an abundance of solid evidence that proves one of the most harmful aspects of cannabis use is the inhalation of burnt plant material. It is not the plant itself that is the problem, it’s the way in which it is burned that causes issues. When marijuana is smoked, it is lit on fire, resulting in combustion at which point the flower or oil reaches almost 800°F or higher. There are two concerns with this. First, the actual heat is not good for the lungs since they aren’t designed to be taking in hot air or smoke. Secondly, when marijuana is burned, it releases cancer-causing compounds like benzene and can lead to tar deposit in the airways.

Vaporization of marijuana results from heating the cannabis plant or concentrate between approximately 250°F and 450°F, with different cannabinoids being released at varying temperature ranges within that interval. The heat level is 2 to 4 times lower than burning it without the benzene release. Celia Morgan, Ph.D. who co-authored the study, explained that CBD may help in a number of ways. One way could be how CBD affects memories, or cues, that hold the desire to smoke. “We found that CBD seems to reduce the salience of cues. It also can reduce anxiety and may affect a memory process called ‘reconsolidation,’ which is when a memory of the reward of smoking is re-activated by seeing someone smoking, it is rendered vulnerable to destruction.” While previous research suggests that CBD can help with a variety of drug addictions, the study was the first to investigate the effect of CBD on cigarette addiction in humans. Twenty-four smokers were recruited and split into two groups, receiving inhalers containing CBD or placebo. Both groups were told to use the inhalers whenever they felt the urge to smoke during a one week period.

The researchers found that while the placebo group showed no difference in their smoking habits, the group that received CBD reduced the number of cigarettes they smoked by almost 40%. Although treatments for cigarette addiction are available today, researchers are still searching for more effective alternatives. CBD seems to be a promising candidate, but Doctor Morgan says it’s hard to draw a direct comparison with other therapies based on the results of her study.

Could Maryland Be The Next State To Make Cannabis Legal?

Almost two-thirds of Maryland residents want recreational cannabis to be legalized in their state, according to polling released in 2016. In response, Maryland legislators are implying they could possibly react to this clear mandate in the the way almost every other lawmaker in America has done, by telling the people to go ahead and make their own law, if that’s truly what they want.

As the Baltimore Sun recently reported, some Maryland legislators are pushing for the legalization of cannabis to be decided by a citizens’ referendum. This could happen as early as next year. If it happens, it seems a near-lock to pass: 61% of likely voters support the legalization, according to a Washington Post-University of Maryland poll. For some people in charge, this is a clear message that “it’s a matter of when” marijuana legalization happens, as state delegate David Moon, one of the main supporters behind deciding legalization by citizens’ referendum, put it. Moon stated, “It’s become very clear that this is no longer a fringe issue. It’s totally mainstream.”

Yes, legalization may be mainstream among voters, however, not among legislators. This is still a dicey subject that the state’s elected officials will need strong convincing that passing off hard decisions like legalization to voters is a good idea. Even this step will be a hard sell. As the Sun reported, there are more than a few shot-callers in Maryland’s state house who aren’t convinced that letting the people give themselves what they want is a good idea. House Speaker Michael E. Busch stated, “It would be unwise for us to go down that path at this time, even before we have medical marijuana up and running,” using the state’s new medical-cannabis program as an excuse.

There are some legitimate reasons why Maryland state delegates would want to impose legalization off on voters rather than be the ones responsible for giving the people what they want and passing a popular law themselves. One is that legislators tend to be more conservative than the voters they represent. Supporting the legalization of cannabis will annoy law enforcement, and losing the support of police is still seen as an existential threat in a state legislature. Another is to boost turnout. Having legalization on the ballot in Colorado in 2012 is credited with helping Barack Obama win that state. Maryland Democrats want to toss out their Republican governor, and marijuana could be the way to do that.

Recently, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters to expect tougher implementation of federal cannabis law. Attorney General Jeff Sessions reused discredited drug war talking points in remarks of his own. He stated, “I believe it’s an unhealthy practice, and current levels of THC in marijuana are very high compared to what they were a few years ago, and we’re seeing real violence around that. Experts are telling me there’s more violence around marijuana than one would think and there’s big money involved.”

Denver saw a 2.2% decrease in violent crime rates in the year after the first legal recreational marijuana sales in Colorado. According to figures from the Drug Policy Alliance, overall property crime decreased by 8.9% in the same period there. In Washington, violent crime rates dropped by 10% from 2011 to 2014. Residents legalized recreational cannabis there in 2012. Medical cannabis rules are also associated with stable or falling violent crime rates. In one 2014 study of the eleven states that legalized medical marijuana from 1990 to 2006, there was no rise in the seven major categories of violent crime and “some evidence of decreasing rates of some types of violent crime, namely homicide and assault.” Sessions is not operating alone in alleging marijuana liberalization creates violence. A handful of Colorado politicians claim that crime there is going up in acute response to legalization , an idea that others deny.

However, the legalization of marijuana most likely has no serious effect on crime rates. Crime statistics are infamously volatile, making long-term trend analysis far more credible than short-term comparisons. The Cato Institute’s research on legalization suggests the laws do not cause any real deviation from the long-term trend of decreasing violent crime rates. Sessions earned a reputation as a drug warrior during his decades in the Senate. While President Donald Trump signaled during election season that he would not target state marijuana legalization, his selection of Sessions to head federal law enforcement efforts has had the budding cannabis industry on the edge of its seat.
