Higher Ground Holdings To Aquire High Times & Industry’s Top Cannabis Content

Sale Price: $9340 (plus unopened box of Dead bootlegs).

Re-Branded Venture to be called High Leafly Cannabis Culture Times 

HOLLYWEED, CA: In a stunning move, the world’s largest satirical cannabis conglomerate, Higher Ground LLCBD, announced the purchase of dozens of cannabis sites and magazines this week, aggressively moving to centralize stoner cliches in one place.

Speaking at MJ BizCon in Las Vegas, CEO Michael A. Stusser said the deal had been a long time coming. “How many stories about Seth Rogen or close-up pics of stank bud do you really need?” Stusser exhaled. “Our acquisition will enable us to consolidate the various marijuana brands – and by that I mean snuff ‘em out like a smokin’ roach.”

In obtaining High Times Holding (publisher of High Times magazine, Culture, Dope Magazine and Green Rush Daily) Higher Ground will have the chance to corner the “boobs and bongs” market (aka weed porn), along with re-licensing dozens of Cannabis Cups to Starbucks. Among those snapped up in the take-over were magazines and “lifestyle brands” Marijuana Business Daily, Sensi, Skunk, Grow, Marijuana Venture, Merry Jane, mg Retailer, Civilized, the Fresh Toast, Herb, CULTURE, Green Entrepreneur, Ganjepreneur, Freedom Leaf, Gossamer, Broccoli, Cannabis Now and MassRoots, allowing Higher Ground to control the vast majority of cannabis content, and assure the number of puns and cliches to go up in smoke.

In the first official move after the purchase, Stusser instituted what is known as The Tommy Chong Rule: In order to modernize and reach new demographics, the Cheech & Chong legend is banned from appearing in any additional marijuana media until the year 4020. Future bans said to include Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Whoopi, Martha Stewart, Joe Rogan, Bill Maher, Miley Cyrus and Chelsea Handler. (Not mentioned: Rihanna, Jason Silva and, surprisingly, Woody Harrelson.) 

highergtv logoReportedly, Higher Ground Holdings wanted to keep the transaction under $10,000 to avoid a Federal SAR (Suspicious Activities Report) filing by the bank.  “We spent about $9500, and traded away some valuable assets.” (Rumored to be a box of Jerry Garcia bootlegs on 8-track cassette.) “Basically, we bought a database of every single person who’s ever fired up a fatty,” said Stusser. “We’ll send ‘em all a copy of Fertilizer Today, our agribusiness trade title – which we also own – and are currently shopping…” Official figures could not be independently verified. When reporters asked for documentation, Stusser said he would share them at the Grasslands VIP Party, but then asked assembled press if anyone had tickets for said event.

“Our goal is to offer customized mainstream video content productions and licensed extensions for cannabis service agencies across the sub and pop-culture spectrums,” said Al Olson, Higher Ground Editor-in-Chief. “And get into the whole CBD-thing, whatever the hell that is. Hemp too!”

An unnamed source also reported that Leafly, owned by Privateer Holdings, was thrown into Higher Ground’s aggressive take-over at the last minute. The insider said the site and app was ditched in order for Privateer to concentrate on making an actual profit – emphasizing their stable of weed-growing companies, including Tilray. Tilray’s partnership with brewing giant Anheuser-Busch InBev makes them less interested in un-profitable pot content. Of the deal, Privateer’s non-cannabis using billionaire CEO Brendan Kennedy said, “Oh, thank god. We’ve been wanting to get Leafly off our books for a decade now, and keep our focus on the beer bong business.”

“We also tried to buy Future State Brands (PROHBTD), MedMen (Embers) and Civilized (New Frontier Data),” noted Higher Ground’s CFO “but by the time we got the paperwork lined up, they’d all burned through so much seed money, they had to abandon their swank offices – and we had no way to reach them.” In a related non-move, Canna Law Blog was NOT acquired in the deal, as they are…well, lawyers, and have positive cash flow.

Michael Stusser & Higher Ground TV: This Xmas We’re Banning Tommy Chong!

Higher Ground’s blockbuster acquisition was announced at the Vegas trade show, MJ Biz Con. BizCon parent company MJ Biz Daily was ALSO swallowed up in the mega-deal. “With a hostile hippie takeover of MJ Biz Daily, we can consolidate all these dope-fiends under one tent – literally,” noted Stusser from his small mid-aisle booth at the trade show. “I mean, The Emerald Cup, CannaCon, CHAMPS, the Cannabis Congress, New West Summit!? Hempfest! How many places do these potheads need to buy a glass pipe, anyway?”

Like so many of the recent corporate buy-outs of alternative weeklies across the country, the Higher Ground deal seems similarly nefarious. “Our main goal, of course, is to fire as many good reporters as possible,” Stusser explained, “and get down to the real business of being stoned to the Bejesus. Frankly, we’d like to sell the whole she-bang to the Huffington Post. We always wanted to be called The Puffington Post – and this is our chance.”

Officials at High Times Holdings were not available for comment. When reporters tried calling the phone number listed in SEC documents, a recording with Bob Marley’s “ Waiting in Vain” played. The mailbox was full. No additional calls to media companies or employees were made before press time.

Higher Ground is a global viral marketing company focusing on Elevating the Dialogue on Cannabis Culture. (Kind of….) Their flagship show is described as “The Daily Show meets Good Morning America, just with a giant bong on the desk.” For more information about the mega-merger, visit www.highergroundtv.com or www.michaelstusser.com

Freedom Leaf Names New Chairman Or The Board

NEVADA: The son of U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy PelosI, Paul Pelosi Jr., has joined Freedom Leaf as Chairman, according to a company press release.   Mr. Pelosi will will be charged with overseeing corporate governance, sustainable revenue generation, and investor relations.

Mr. Pelosi is currently Executive Director of the Corporate Governance Initiative (CGI), an organization that is committed to assisting companies adhere to a system of guidelines, practices, and procedures by which a company is directed and controlled. CGI also helps companies create policies to find better balance between the interests of a company’s many stakeholders, such as shareholders, management, patrons, providers, investors, government and the public.

Mr. Pelosi stated, “I will use my influence and best efforts to make Freedom Leaf the foremost advocate and example of corporate governance in the emerging cannabis and industrial hemp business sector. Additionally, I strongly believe that the importance of driving revenue in order to increase the value for the shareholders is an important goal of a company, while still treating all other stakeholders fairly. The Freedom Leaf network is an important tool to provide factual information about the powerful benefits of cannabis. For example, veterans and first responders can develop PTSD and other maladies that result in physical and non-physical pain. The pharmaceutical industry has prescribed opiates to alleviate this pain, but has resulted in the opiate addiction crisis that we are dealing with today. It is almost impossible to withdraw from opiate addiction without some sort of aid, and cannabis seems to be a perfect way to aid in the removal of this addiction. It is also interesting that the states which have legalized medical marijuana are states with dramatically fewer opiate overdose deaths. For this reason I am excited to work with Freedom Leaf to produce factual information and products centered around the benefits of cannabis and CBD.”

Freedom Leaf’s Co-Founder and CEO, Cliff Perry, stated, “I am proud that Mr. Pelosi thinks highly of Freedom Leaf’s prospects and our commitment to the mission of marijuana and hemp legalization. We are looking forward to working closely with Paul to build our company in a way that adheres to the highest standards of Corporate Governance and pursues revenue-enhancing mergers and acquisitions.”

Freedom Leaf To Open CBD Oil Extraction Facility In Las Vegas

NEVADA: Freedom Leaf  today announced that it has agreed to purchase CO2 Supercritical Extraction equipment for legal hemp CBD extraction from NuAxonTech, the producer of world class, large capacity Co2 Supercritical Extraction equipment.

Clifford J. Perry, Freedom Leaf CEO, explained, “As part of our strategic business model, the equipment will be installed in Las Vegas this week and will be used by Freedom Leaf to process locally grown raw (low THC, less than .03) industrial hemp from this year’s harvest into cannabinoid (CBD) extracts for the booming Nevada cannabis/hemp market. It may also be used to process EU Certified rare cannabinoid Hemp from Freedom Leaf’s own newly acquired production facilities in Spain.”

In a previous press release, Perry stated, “With this transformative acquisition in Spain, Freedom Leaf has become a major participant not only in the booming CBD (cannabidiol) industry, but in many other aspects of the global hemp industry. Current product development projects include research into rare cannabinoids, CBD drinks, phytocannabinoid oil, hemp seed oil, hemp fabric for footwear and furniture, etc…”

In addition, the facility will also be used as a showcase for NuAxon’s CO2 Supercritical Extraction equipment. Freedom Leaf is NuAxon’s exclusive global distributor for the cannabis/hemp industry, and it expects prospective buyers from around the world to come to Las Vegas to see how the equipment works.

The Las Vegas Sun reported Friday July 7th that Russell Wilhelm, the Nevada Department of Agriculture Industrial Hemp Program Manager, says the state is setting up the new industrial hemp regulations and hemp production is expected to double in Nevada this year and is projected to keep growing with the Legislature’s passage of Senate Bill 396, which allows for industrial hemp farming, testing and selling. Last year, Nevada had only 250 acres in production, while Colorado had over 9,000 acres.

“With the passing of SB396, we actually have the opportunity to now start producing industrial hemp seed in the state of Nevada, one, and then two, the other significant opportunity after that is going to be the ability to sell industrial hemp-based products in retail venues in the state,” Wilhelm said.

The Sun quotes a local hemp farmer saying that Nevada needs to beef up its industrial-level processing. Much of last year’s yield went unused, or had to be sent out of state to be processed.

Freedom Leaf Reports Tech Hiccups, Success In Live Election Night Coverage With Cannabis Radio

NEVADA:  The morning after a marathon live video feed of election coverage on Tuesday night in conjunction with Cannabis Radio, Freedom Leaf, “The Marijuana Legalization Company™”  discovered early Wednesday morning, to the consternation of many friends and shareholders that its websites (http://www.freedomleaf.com/ and http://freedomleafinc.com/) were not responding.

The company released this statement n response to numerous inquiries about the incident:

When informed, in an email from our Virtual Private Server provider, that the sites were taken down, “As a part of A2 Hosting Perpetual Security, we’ve discovered a security issue in your VPS account. The evidence of the security issue: 69,581 pps during 5 second interval (DoS attack)”, Clifford Perry, President and CEO of Freedom Leaf, Inc. commented, “That doesn’t make any sense. We are the Good News in Marijuana Reform. No one takes the good guys down so there must be another explanation.”

Initially, Management believed that the high volume of traffic to the site during the election coverage like what happened to Canada’s immigration website crash during the US vote, and possible traffic to the site from foreign visitors in earlier time zones, was the cause of the outage. Freedom Leaf’s IT department looked at the analytics and noticed that the inbound traffic from Europe and Worldwide brought about as a result of our media partnership with www.LaMarijuana.com the largest player in the Hispanic market worldwide.

The sites were restored about 10:30 am (PST) and no credible evidence of an organized attack was found.  The incident actually was tracked to other media properties that are in development and hosted on the Freedom Leaf server.  “The volume of traffic certainly attests to the success of the election coverage. We and our partner Cannabis Radio are grateful to all of our friends and supporters who helped spread the word about the broadcast. Regardless of how people feel about the election, cannabis came out the winner and we are very happy to have been part of telling the story,” said Mr. Perry.  “We expect to be there to announce when Federal Agencies finally catch up to the states that increasingly recognize the rights of the people to care for their own health needs,” he concluded.

It makes sense that this election season generated a large spike in views for the Freedom Leaf website, considering it was the largest marijuana legalization event in the history of the nation. The number of recreationally legal states doubled to eight, and four more states now have medical marijuana programs. Visit Freedom Leaf’s results guide.

NEVADA: Freedom Leaf, the successful publishing and licensing company behind the legal cannabis industry, has quickly reached important revenue-driving milestones in Spain and The Netherlands in its international branding effort.
