Americans are more open minded about legalizations of Cannabis than ever before. A recent Gallup poll shows that about 60% of Americans support legal cannabis use. The surprising parts about this poll is the rising support for cannabis reform across all age groups. Take this into perspective and now you have nine states voting this November 8 on legalization of medical use, recreational use, or both depending on the state. Finore Mining Inc. (OTC: FNREF), Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTC: CNBX), Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQX: TRTC), Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC: MJNA), United Cannabis Corp. (OTCQB: CNAB)
The states where recreational cannabis will be on the ballot are California, Arizona, Nevada, Maine and Massachusetts, while North Dakota, Arkansas, Montana and Florida are considering medical marijuana legalization. California in particular is an interest to investors. According to Arcview Group, a company that links investors with cannabis companies, has shown the market for both recreational and medicinal marijuana is expected to reach a value of $22 billion by 2020 from the $7 billion it is today, if California says yes.
California already has the most comprehensive medical marijuana law in the country, which includes edibles, and therefore it is not surprising some of the most creative cannabis infused edibles were originated in the western state. Finore Mining Inc. (OTC: FNREF) just announced late yesterday an agreement for the acquisition of KushTown USA LLC, a leading California Marijuana Beverage Company. Kushtown USA for example is specializing in medicated water, soda, hot sauce and barbecue sauce products infused with cannabis. The company offers 20 different varieties of medicated sodas on its website. The sodas and drinks come in varieties of carbonated and non-carbonated beverages, with flavors like Cherry Cola, lemonade, fruit punch, and lemon lime, all infused with a medical marijuana THC oil tincture.

The creator of Kushtown USA, Peter Moret, has an interesting story behind the company. In early 1999, Moret’s mother became ill from breast cancer. In addition to the chemotherapy treatments, Moret research additional possible treatments for dealing with the aches and pains from the cancer. After researching cannabis’s medical effects, he created a Medical Marijuana tincture, called it Kushtown tincture, and gave his mother a single serving of the tincture in tea, which she then started drinking regularly. The cannabis infused teas not only helped in dealing with the aches and pains from cancer, but also increased her appetite and activity.
