(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20150311/734965-a ) (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20150311/734965-b ) Cannabis Trends & Legalization Implications will be held Monday, November 21st in New York City, and will explore the most important legal, medical and financial developments and issues associated with America's marijuana industry. The session will start with a panel of key players in the space, dissecting the implications and opportunities associated with cannabis decriminalization across the United States. It will be moderated by Kenneth Shea, Senior Consumer Products Analyst of Bloomberg Intelligence. It is anticipated that Mr. Friedland, who is also the author of Marijuana: The World's Most Misunderstood Plant, will have the opportunity to highlight to event attendees the progress that OWC has made with its medical cannabis research in Israel, and the positive impact that OWC and other Israeli companies are having on state-licensed U.S. growers and extractors. When asked about his participation in the Bloomberg event, Mr. Friedland stated, "I've been involved in the legal cannabis industry for several years now; including as the CEO of INTIVA Inc., an investor and operator of businesses in the global cannabis market. I view the cannabis industry as an emerging global market with several sectors, including medical, recreational, services and equipment, each with their own unique opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs. While many industry participants are very speculative, as the legalization of both recreational and medical cannabis spreads, I've concluded that the real money will be made by companies that not only harness science to differentiate their products, but are also able to get those products into the marketplace."
