Other recent developments in the legal marijuana industry include:



Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTCPK:MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, late last week announced that its subsidiary HempMeds® Brasil will host the Third Meeting of Former Residents of Neurology at John Paul II Children's Hospital in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil on Aug. 25.

Hemp, Inc. (OTCPK:HEMP), a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with the largest multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in the western hemisphere, announced last Friday that the company was featured in an article by Colorado Springs Independent regarding Hemp, Inc.'s signing of an agreement with Alaska-based gas and oil drilling services company Quadco LLC to distribute DrillWall™, a loss circulation material (LCM).

PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. (OTCPK:POTN) announced this month that the Company's six month operating results have been posted on OTCMarkets.com in the form of unaudited financial statement and a supplemental disclosure. With revenues of $12,044,028, the Company has demonstrated the result of its continuously strengthening momentum. The year-to-date results are more than twice its 6-month revenues in 2017 of $5,077,625, an increase of 137% year-over-year. These six-month results will be included in the forthcoming audit and certification of the Company's financial statements by the Company's new PCAOB-member audit firm, Manohar, Chowdhry & Associates, which audited financial statements will be included in the Company's refiling of its Form 10 Registration Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").

Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCPK:SGMD), one of the largest publicly traded hydroponics supply companies, recently announced its application for the OTCQB Venture Marketplace for the trading of Sugarmade common shares. The Company had previously announced, in error, its return to the OTCQB Venture Market. Management had thought the return to the OTCQB would be automatic once fully reporting status was restored, this assumption was incorrect and thus Sugarmade has reapplied. Mr. Jimmy Chan, CEO of Sugarmade commented, "The OTCQB enables Sugarmade to build our visibility and expand liquidity for our shareholders without the rigid procedures and requirements that go along with an exchange listing. For these reasons, we have applied to the OTCQB and our application is under review. We believe we meet all the requirements and that the trading venue is optimal for Sugarmade."
