Missouri’s medical marijuana program off to a fast start

Missouri issued almost 22,000 medical marijuana cards in the five months since the program was launched, outpacing expectations.

Cannabis firm Jushi Holdings to begin trading on CSE

Jushi Holdings, a Florida-based marijuana and hemp operator, said it received approval to begin trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) as JUSH. The company expects to begin trading on the CSE on Dec. 9. With the new listing, its common shares are expected to be voluntarily delisted from the NEO exchange on Dec. 6. Jushi’s shares will continue to trade on over-the-Counter exchanges under JUSHF. Trading on the CSE will provide “increased visibility with the investment community,” Jushi CEO and chair Jim Cacioppo said.
