AUSTRALIA: Maverick medico Geoffrey Edelsten has teamed up with a colleague in Canada who he claims holds a licence to grow Cannabis in Nevada and the two plan to buy a range of marijuana dispensaries in the US.
Spotting a looming lucrative market, Edelsten, who was deregistered as a doctor in 1988, also plans to open cannabis stores in Australia when laws permit him to.
“They are extremely popular and very successful as a business,” he said.
“I notice that other states here in Australia are having investigations to see whether it should be made legal and I think it will be. The medical benefits are unarguable now and very well-known.
