The CBDS Shareholder Meeting was held last Thursday in Oakland, California - so I loaded up Marlene and Popi the Boston Terrier puppy into the old Benz (even with 340,000 miles on her, she's till going strong) and we headed off to Northern California. We finally landed in Berkeley on Tuesday afternoon, where we were happily greeted by a huge "FlowCana" billboard, and funny enough, it ended up looming right over the motel we stayed at. It was very cool to see mega advertising from so many new weed businesses - those guys and gals are working hard on positioning themselves in Cali!
The Shareholder Meeting was awesome! Among those in attendance...

Gravel will help the Company and the entire cannabis sector to overcome federal criminalization policies of the industry.

Gravel sought the United States presidency in the 2008 cycle and served in the Senate from 1969 to 1981. He was an outspoken opponent of the Nixon Administration's war on drugs. He is best known for officially releasing the Pentagon Papers and forcing an end to the military draft, both of which contributed to ending the Vietnam War.
