USEI Announces That Its Cannabis Grow Project Has Started in California
USEI CANNABIS Initiatives CORP, a wholly owned subsidiary of US ENERGY INITIATIVES CORPORATION, INC. (OTC PINK: USEI) is a California based company and is pleased to announce that it has begun growing cannabis in southern California. This is one of the Company’s 2017 goals that it hoped to accomplish… that is now a reality!!
According to Anthony Miller, CEO as I have previously mentioned… USEI has a current license to grow and partners that have been growing for many years successfully in California that produce some of the hottest marijuana strains that produce the highest yields and money. We have officially started growing cannabis with them and our hope that our first crop will come in the coming months. Images of this project can be found on our website at www.useicannabis.com/web/useis-california-grow-project/ … and in the coming weeks we will continue to post updates of our plants growing… including our signage and also video footage of our progress. We will continually post the images on our website and our twitter page concurrently… this is an exciting time for us… and this is just a start…. Our hope is to expand this operation into a larger significant grow operation before years end…. Our goal is to learn lessons from the best of the best growers so that we can ensure our success. In 2018 California will be issuing licences to growers for recreational cannabis growing (the largest cannabis marketplace in the world) and it our goal to be ready for that opportunity. This is an important step in that direction. (click on images to enlarge)
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said he doesn’t think the Trump administration will crack down on states that have legalized marijuana, following an hour-long conversation with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday.
Sessions “didn’t give me any reason to think that he’s going to come down and try and put everyone out of business,” Hickenlooper told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd following the meeting.
Marijuana is federally illegal, though eight states have passed legislation to allow the recreational use and sale of the plant.
The Trump administration has sent mixed signals about whether or not they intend to crackdown on the burgeoning marijuana industry.
Sean Spicer promised “greater enforcement” of federal laws in February, and Sessions himself has said that he’s “not a fan” of the expanded use of marijuana, and that he’ll enforce federal laws in an “appropriate way.”
However, Sessions is a “pretty strong supporter of states being laboratories of democracy,” Hickenlooper told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.
Hickenlooper added that Sessions has “got his hands full” with the opioid crisis and other hard drugs— along with implementing the Trump administration’s agenda on immigration.
Sessions reportedly told Hickenlooper toward the end of their meeting, “you haven’t seen us cracking down, have you?”
A meeting this week with Attorney General Jeff Sessions has left the governor of the first state to legalize marijuana less concerned over the possibility of the federal government pursuing a war against recreational use.
While Mr. Sessions has hardly been reserved about his opinions on pot, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper told reporters that a face-to-face meeting with the attorney general this week gave him the impression a federal crackdown is far from imminent.
Mr. Sessions “feels strongly” that “more people smoking more marijuana or doing any kind of drugs is unhealthy for the country,” the Democratic governor said in a Wednesday interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Nonetheless, the attorney general indicated his Justice Department is more concerned with going after dangerous substances, according to Mr. Hickenlooper.
“He’s got his hands full with things — heroin, methamphetamines, cocaine — other things are even more significant. But doesn’t mean that he feels in any way that he should be cutting any slack to marijuana,” he told “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd after Wednesday’s meeting.
“And he certainly was very direct and clearly said they’ve got a lot of priorities,” the governor continued. “And, at one point, he said, ‘Well you haven’t seen us cracking down, have you?’”
“I interpreted that as he’s got his hands full,” Mr. Hickenlooper added.
