Lawmakers in Washington have failed to reach an agreement on economic stimulus to help relieve the impact of COVID-19 in the United States, but there were early indications that a $908 billion bipartisan proposal could be gaining traction.

ESCONDIDO, Calif., Dec. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MARIJUANA COMPANY OF AMERICA INC. (“MCOA” or the “Company”) (OTC: MCOA), an innovative hemp and cannabis corporation, today announced a joint letter to shareholders of the Company and its recent share exchange partner Cannabis Global, Inc. Dear Shareholders of Marijuana Company of America and Cannabis Global:As we have discussed with many of you, Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC:MCOA) and Cannabis Global, Inc. (OTC:CBGL) recently entered into an agreement where each became the largest shareholder of the other. Thus, CBGL owns 650 million shares of MCOA and MCOA owns just over 7.2 million shares of CBGL. The Companies engaged in this transaction to promote the growing common interests and collaborations between these two pioneering cannabis and CBD operations.Both companies have recently enhanced their programs to maximize shareholder value. MCOA is aggressively overhauling its marketing strategy, rapidly expanding its product line’s geographic reach, and revamping its capital and debt structures. The two companies have agreed to collaborate in several areas, including expanding product offerings in Europe and Latin America and developing Cannabis Global’s Project Varin designed to discover and market new methods to infuse hemp extracts and cannabis into food, beverages, and other consumer products.Both companies have big plans for 2021. We are thrilled you have chosen to join in our journey to enhance shareholder value as the hemp and cannabis industries move into 2021. Next year will likely be another year of strong growth for market participants and the sector’s investors.Here is a summary of our plans through the end of 2020 and into 2021:Marijuana Company of America (OTC:MCOA):Throughout 2021, investors should expect the Company to continue to revitalize and expand its marketing efforts relative to the innovative hempSMART product line, with a strong emphasis on further enhancing our already strong product quality among consumers.MCOA has taken significant strides to address convertible debt levels, having cycled through nearly half of our legacy debt. While there is still more work to do in this area, we are committed to continuing the transition from debt financing to equity financing, which is far less dilutive for all stakeholders in the Company. Our recently effective S-1 filing with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission is a big step in the right direction.Cannabis Global (OTC:CBGL):National Market Focus: Cannabis Global is on the move relative to product innovation. The emphasis moving forward for the Company will be to target what will likely be the new National cannabis market as the incoming Biden/Harris administration moves toward nationwide cannabis legalization.National Market for Secure Cannabis Transport: CBGL has acquired Ethos Technology, LLC and its proprietary ultra-secure cannabis transport system. While the California market alone is likely large enough to support a robust market for this innovative product line, CBGL is also eyeing the likely upcoming market for interstate transport of cannabis and the numerous tracking, security, and administrative challenges the market expansion will present.Hemp You Can Feel™ Product Line: The Hemp You Can Feel™ product line is based on one of the most innovative hemp infusion technologies in the marketplace - a unique process where honey bees are provided cannabinoids which the bees use to make a unique non-infused, water-soluble compound, which is used to infuse non-alcoholic cocktail mixers, coffee products and the unique line of organic and artificial sweeteners. Sales of these lines are being driven by the third party platforms, including Amazon, which has accepted several shipments in increasing size. The technology partner for this innovative line is Phyto Pharma, LTD of Israel.National Market for Infusion Technologies - Project Varin: CBGL has made great strides on the intellectual property front, with four provisional and one non-provisional patent filing on new methods to infuse cannabinoids into foods, beverages, and consumer products. CBGL has recently completed product development on what is believed to be the industry’s first food-grade cannabinoid nano formations designed to rewrite the cost and efficiency equation for the coming nationwide cannabinoid infusion marketplace. Cannabis Global expects to soon begin announcing a series of new products based on this innovative platform with additional non-provisional patent filings expected over the coming weeks.While this is only a brief summary of where each Company is moving, rest assured both Companies have established strong plans to keep our investors informed. Investors in MCOA and CBGL can expect robust news flow over the coming months, as these strategies move forward.We encourage you to reach out to us to let us how we are doing or to express any concerns you have. Our management teams look forward to hearing from you.About Marijuana Company of America, Inc.

Renault team boss Cyril Abiteboul thanked the governing FIA on Thursday for allowing it "in recognition of our commitment to young drivers throughout junior motorsport and to Fernando’s own dedication to furthering the careers of young talents." The Spaniard's participation in the Dec. 15 test in Abu Dhabi will not sit well with Racing Point and McLaren, who have Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo joining next year and only three days of pre-season testing.

(Bloomberg) -- Utilities have cut power to more than 100,000 homes and businesses in Southern California to prevent live wires from falling and sparking wildfires as high winds buffet the state.The shutoffs, which began Wednesday, could ultimately impact more than 1 million people as gusts of up to 70 miles (113 kilometers) per hour sweep across hillsides and mountains left bone dry by a drought gripping much of the state.“If fires do start they will have a pretty dangerous spread,” said Marc Chenard, a senior branch forecaster for the National Weather Service.California has already been charred by record fires that have burned 4.2 million acres and killed 31 people in 2020. Utilities including PG&E Corp. and Edison International’s Southern California Edison and have cut power repeatedly to prevent live wires from falling into dry brush.Near San Diego, Sempra Energy’s San Diego Gas & Electric utility has cut power to more than 72,000 homes and businesses at 6 a.m. local time, or about 216,000 people based on the size of the average household. Another 22,000 homes and businesses could lose power, according to the company’s website.Further north, Southern California Edison has cut electricity to more than 42,000 homes and businesses, according to its website. Another 252,000 could follow suit, which would constitute the region’s largest blackout to prevent wildfires this year.Last week, Edison cut power to thousands of customers on Thanksgiving during high winds. In 2019, PG&E filed for bankruptcy after its wires sparked the deadliest blaze in state history.The high winds and blackouts will be mostly confined to Southern California but could touch a portion of the state’s Central Valley as well.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
Former Liberian warlord Alieu Kosiah appeared in a Swiss court on Thursday, as part of a long-awaiting trial over accusations of killing civilians, rape and cannibalism during Liberia’s civil war. Kosiah appeared dressed in a shirt and suit, and acknowledged he understood the charges against him, according to the Reuters news agency.Later during the hearing, he interrupted, shouting that he was “targeted”, complaining that he spent six years in pre-trial detention. He apologised for his outburst.Kosiah has denied the charges against him, which include recruitment and use of a child soldier, forced transportation, looting, cruel treatment of civilians, attempted murder, murder, desecration of a corpse and rape.The 45-year-old was arrested in Switzerland in 2014 and the indictment accuses him of participating in the killing of 18 civilians. He has not formally entered his plea before the court.Part of Kosiah’s defence relies on him not having been present in Lofa County, Liberia when the alleged crimes took place, Reuters reported, citing the defendant’s lawyer.The case against Kosiah was brought by Liberian survivors of the country’s civil war and supported by Civitas Maxima, a group representing victims of war crimes and crimes against humanity, and Global Justice and Research Project (GJRP), a Liberian organisation.Hassan Bility, director of GJRP, previously described Kosiah’s trial as “a great day for justice in Liberia, a great day for all of the victims”.Kosiah rose through the ranks of the rebel United Liberation Movement of Liberia for Democracy (ULIMO) during the country’s first civil war from1989 to 1996. He fought against Charles Taylor’s soldiers in Lofa County, allegedly committing war crimes that took place from 1993 to 1995.Alain Werner, one of the lawyers for Civitas Maxima representing the victims, has previously underlined the importance of the victims being heard. “We are proud that the bravery of the victims who testified against Alieu Kosiah is finally being recognized through this trial.”Kosiah is said to have participated in cannibalism, and in one alleged incident ate slices of a dead man’s heart off a metal plate.The suspect’s trial in Switzerland is possible because the country’s laws recognise universal jurisdiction over selected serious crimes under international law, according to rights group Human Rights Watch.“Liberians have repeatedly called for justice for civil wars-era crimes, but the Liberian government has failed to deliver,” said HRW’s Balkees Jarrah, associate international justice director.Some 250,000 people were killed in Liberia’s civil war and thousands fled the fighting.
