You all might be wondering what the hell new boom industry? Well yes it is just because the Big industry folks are hoarding it away for big profits is why you might ask that! What you need dig into is how can you profit from this soon to be legally profitable product. Before the big boys start putting restrictions on it for there own benefits. Remember that Medical weed has been around for awhile, even while it is still an illegal product. So do you not see that they have been holding back on making it legal, until they’ve had the chance to set up taxes and a means of distribution for this new wonder product in other worlds they need to capitalize on this product first (they being the profiteers or big industry) for hundreds if not thousand of years this magic pain med has been used by people and they made it illegal why because they didn’t know how to profit from it. Now they do under the guise of Medical Marijuana. You still smoke it or bake it or now they want to give you a caplet of it. Same product better marketing! So when you see that company’s are now posting to the stock market (going public), you better believe that the money is going to start to flow and where there’s money theirs government just the way it has to be! Believe this if you don’t get in now you may never will! Where there is billions involved our governments will legalize it.

Is there whole states that make the growing of weed a mass project even though it may still be illegal? Research it you’ll be amazed!!!

Newest Boom Industry

NTRR Broadens Scope of Medical Marijuana Initiative to Include International Markets

SARASOTA, Fla.—As new legislation opens up markets for medical marijuana (MMJ) around the globe, Neutra Crop. (OTCBB: NTRR), a growing provider of all-natural wellness solutions, plans to make its MMJ initiative international in scope.

With nations such as Italy, Canada, the Czech Republic and more following the example of states such as California and Colorado by legalizing the use of medicinal cannabis, the global market for MMJ products and services is growing fast. The U.S. medical marijuana industry alone will gross about $1.5 billion in 2013, with revenue potentially rising to $6 billion by 2018, according to a new study released by MMJ Business Daily. Overseas markets could add untold billions to that figure.

NTRR is working to capitalize on the expected growth by helping to develop and market potentially lucrative new innovations in the processing and use of cannabis-derived nutraceutical treatments for a wide variety of illnesses. The company has founded a new subsidiary, Cannabis Technologies, Inc., to lead the charge into the MMJ industry, while the parent company pursues equally promising opportunities in other nutraceutical sectors.

Currently, the company is targeting emerging MMJ businesses for both acquisition and partnership. This week, the company’s executive leadership will be in California to scout for potential targets in the region. A visit to Colorado is planned to follow.

Through its new Los Angeles-based MMJ subsidiary, Neutra Corp. plans to follow in the footsteps of other successful public companies, including Cannabis Science, Inc. (PINK: CBIS), Medical Marijuana Inc. (PINK: MJNA) and Terra Tech Corp. (PINK: TRTC), enabling technological advancements in the cultivation and processing of cannabis in approved markets.

UFC boss Dana White agrees with Cat Zingano-Miesha Tate stoppage

by John Morgan on Apr 15, 2013 at 10:00 pm ET

LAS VEGAS – UFC President Dana White isn’t exactly a fan of referee Kim Winslow. That said, the UFC boss said he has zero issue with her decision to halt this past weekend’s Cat Zingano (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) vs. Miesha Tate bout (13-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC).

“She was in a bad position; I think it was a good stoppage,” White said of Tate. “People can say her hand was down and everything else, but she just ate six, seven, eight knees. It was time for the fight to be stopped.

Zingano and Tate met on the main card of this past weekend’s The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale event. A slot as coach on “The Ultimate Fighter 18” and a shot at UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey hung in the balance.

Tate bagged the opening two rounds with capable striking and a strong wrestling game before Zingano charges back in the final frame. With time winding down, Zingano unleashed a barrage of knees that bloodied Tate’s face and left the former Strikeforce champ wobbled. As Zingano continued to press forward, Winslow stepped in and waved off the fight at the 2:55 mark of the third.

Tate later protested the stoppage, insisting she was still able to continue fighting. Some MMA observers also claimed the first knee strike was illegal, with Tate’s hand on the mat qualifying her as a downed opponent.

White said he believed the blow was legal and commended Winslow for stepping in when she did.

“Her hand might have been down for a second,” White said. “First of all, it’s a stupid rule anyway. It’s the dumbest rule in the sport, number one. Number two, the referee was right there while the fight was going on. Not that that’s one of my favorite referees – there’s a lot that that referee doesn’t see – but I do not agree that was a bad stoppage. It was a good stoppage. Was it illegal, what happened? If she saw it or didn’t see it, that fight needed to be stopped either way in my opinion.”

With the win, Zingano now receives a UFC title shot in her second bout with the promotion. Tate falls back in the pack, but White has often expressed his admiration for her as a fighter and isn’t likely to drop too far down the rankings. A rematch could certainly be in order at some point, but White simply doesn’t believe there should be any controversy.

“I’m not a big fan of the ref who reffed that fight; there’s a lot of stuff that that referee doesn’t see,” White said. “But I have absolutely no beef whatsoever with that stoppage.”

UFC President Dana White anticipates additional women’s divisions in future

by John Morgan on Apr 15, 2013 at 8:00 pm ET

LAS VEGAS – As he watched a group of 50 women try out for the “The Ultimate Fighter 18,” UFC President Dana White admitted he was impressed with the talent level of the fighters. And while his promotion currently employs only 135-pound women, White doesn’t believe that will always be the case.

“You would think so,” White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) when asked if he expected to add more women’s divisions to the UFC. “If you think about it, when we started this company, we had heavyweights, light heavyweights, middleweights and welterweights. That was it. When we brought in the 155-pound division, everybody was like, ‘This is crazy. They’re too small. Nobody will ever watch.’

“The evolution of this sport as it’s continued to grow, we’ve been adding weight classes, and the sport keeps getting bigger. There are more and more talented guys in all those weight classes. The same thing will happen with the women.”

To date, there have been just two women’s bouts in the UFC: February’s Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche bantamweight title fight and this past weekend’s No. 1 contender fight between Cat Zingano and former Strikeforce champ Miesha Tate. A handful of other women have already signed to the UFC’s roster, and “The Ultimate Fighter 18” will feature additional fighters hoping to score a UFC deal.

White believes the excitement surrounding the new division will inevitably lead to more women athletes competing in the sport – which in turn may very well lead to a need for more opportunities in the UFC.

“I think when you got into the 135-pound division, I knew there were enough fights for a year and a half, two years,” White said. “You think that after it starts to generate some excitement and interest that other women will pop out of the woodwork. … I think over the next couple of years, we’re really going to see a big boom.”

There are, of course, critics of the women’s game who wonder if the division has staying power or if it is simply a fad whose time will pass. Boxing aficionados point to their sport, which enjoyed a women’s boom in the 90s with fighters like Leila Ali, Christy Martin, Lucia Rijker and others but is no longer much of a draw.

White doesn’t believe his company will allow that to happen.

“I just think that this company is so different than boxing,” White said. “Women’s boxing blew up for a minute and then it just died and went away. We invest in the sport, and as long as we want women to stay, women will continue to thrive and grow.”
