Paraguay will start producing and selling marijuana for medical purposes

Published

on

Companies will soon be able to obtain licenses for the production and sale of cannabis plants for medical purposes in Paraguay. World High Life Plc. (NEX: LIFE)is looking to benefit from the European market

2% of all received marijuana will go to the Ministry of Health, after that patients in need will get it for free. In particular, the drug will facilitate the condition of patients with epilepsy and Parkinson’s. In 2017, a law launched a national program in Paraguay. The program is about the use of cannabis herb and its derivatives for medical purposes. At the same time, the State began to procure cannabis oil for medical purposes.

The use of cannabis as a drug is legal in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Puerto Rico. In Bolivia, Costa Rica and Ecuador, personal use is ok, but with restrictions.

Uruguay is the first country in the world to legalize the sale, use, and cultivation of cannabis herb.

Paraguay’s Congress passed a bill creating a state-sponsored system

Paraguay’s congress has passed a bill making it possible to import marijuana seeds and grow the plant for medical uses. A decision that follows the trends set by other countries in Latin America.

The landlocked South American nation had authorized the importing of cannabis oil in May under the control of the health ministry. Patients celebrated Tuesday’s decision for making it more readily available.

“We are very happy because this will also allow for the import of seeds for oil production,” said Roberto Cabanas, vice president Paraguay’s medicinal cannabis organization. His daughter has Dravet syndrome and the family was paying $300 a month for imported cannabis oil.

Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Colombia had already legalized marijuana for medical purposes. Uruguay has fully legalized growing and selling marijuana for any use.

The health ministry will sign the bill by the executive soon. Growing marijuana for recreational purposes in Paraguay is illegal, yet the country is a key source of illegal marijuana trafficked into Brazil and Argentina.

Paraguay’s booming marijuana export traffic attracting gangs and violence

Paraguay is a global marijuana powerhouse: The small South American country produces 9 percent of the world’s supply. But until recently, it wasn’t common to see drug raids or hear helicopters thumping overhead in search of plantations. That’s all changing.

Last June, Brazilian gang members killed Paraguay’s most prominent crime lord. He left behind a burgeoning marijuana and cocaine empire that is quickly becoming one of South America’s biggest drug-trafficking headaches, and the fight to control that trade is proving far more vicious than Paraguayan officials anticipated.

With thousands of square miles of farmland, Paraguay has a stable, agriculture-based economy – and the world’s fourth-largest crop of marijuana.

The investment company World High Life (NEX: LIFE)has recently made moves to acquire Britain’s top hemp producer, Love Hemp, in a transaction involving all shares valued at 9 million GBP.

WHL plans to help Love Hemp expand into other European markets, starting with Germany in 2020. Love Hemp produces a variety of CBD products such as sprays, vapes, oils, edibles, CBD-infused beverages, and cosmetics, and sells its products in 1,200 UK high street stores. The European medical cannabis market is predicted to be one of the most valuable in the world and will key a key export destination for Latin American countries.

Even so, Paraguay has traditionally lacked the rampant violence and corruption that has allowed expansive drug-trafficking organizations to take hold in other parts of South America. But its porous borders and central position on the continent, among other factors, have begun to attract increasing attention from major drug gangs.

Less than one percent of Paraguay’s population consumes marijuana, according to the country’s National Anti-Drug Secretariat, or SENAD. Viewing it instead as a high-risk, high-reward cash crop with a better yield than soybeans, one of the country’s main legal exports. That means nearly all of the marijuana grown in Paraguay enters the international black market, SENAD said.

Officials there said about 20 percent of Paraguay’s marijuana export to south Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile. Each country’s main supply of the drug – or west to Bolivia. The other 80 percent crosses the border to Brazil. Various gangs purchase it and distribute it throughout the country.

Ford’s market cap tops $100 billion for the very first time

Published

on

Ford Motor’s market value topped $100 billion for the first time ever as the automaker’s stock hit a new 52-week high Thursday.

The organization’s shares hopped Thursday by as much as 5.7% to $25.87, hitting another 20 or more year high, prior to shutting at $25.02 a share, up 2.3%. Its fairly estimated worth dropped to $99.99 billion.

The additions have been energized by Ford’s plans to build production of electric vehicles, including the Mustang Mach-E crossover and an upcoming electric version of its bestselling F-150 pickup that is expected out this spring. The efforts are part for a Ford+ turnaround plan led by CEO Jim Farley, who assumed control over the helm in October 2020.

Ford’s presently worth more than crosstown adversary General Motors, at about $90 billion, as well as electric vehicle start-up Rivian Automotive, at $72 billion, which has failed to support acquires following a blockbuster IPO in November. Ford proceeds to altogether trail Tesla, which has a market cap of more than $1 trillion.

The automaker is evaluated overweight with a value focus of $21.83 an offer, as indicated by a normal of 22 examiners arranged by FactSet. Be that as it may, not all Wall Street examiners haven’t totally gotten tied up with Ford’s turnaround.

“The stock market’s attraction to the Ford EV story continues to take us by surprise,” Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas told investors in a Thursday note called “Ford Market Cap Crosses $100bn: What’s In the Price?”

Morgan Stanley’s value focus for Ford is $12 an offer. Its bull case for the stock is $25 an offer, as indicated by Jonas.

“Ford’s share price movement is impressive and management deserve credit for changing the strategic narrative, triggering a re-rating,” Jonas said. “However, at this juncture, we believe the risks facing Ford and the sector are rising faster than the opportunity.”

Jonas refered to worries including the auto industry’s historically cyclical nature returning, challenges in scaling EV production and more competitive and engaging EVs entering the market against Ford.
