MJNA DIXIE: Front page HEADLINES : The Boston Globe 3-6-13 Great News!
Here is the excerpt from the Boston Globe article about MJNA:
Tripp Keber, widely considered the king of #$%$-infused products, is also looking East. His Dixie Elixirs & Edibles enterprise earned more than $1 million in 2012 by selling medicated carbonated beverages, infused edibles such as chocolate truffles and fruit lozenges, and other items to roughly 500 #$%$ dispensaries in Colorado, where #$%$ has been legal since 2000.
Keber projects his company’s sales will more than triple this year as Dixie Elixirs strikes deals in Arizona, Washington, D.C., Connecticut, and Massachusetts. He is in discussions with six Bay State entrepreneurs, including one in Nantucket, to license the brand and technology.
At Dixie’s Colorado headquarters, molecular biologists wearing white lab coats work with mechanical engineers, chemists, food scientists, and a chef to create dozens of products in a Willy Wonka-like setting. They concoct a rainbow of elixirs, including sparkling pomegranate sodas formulated with up to 75 milligrams of THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) per 12-ounce serving and mandarin orange-flavored energy boosters with about 60 milligrams of THC and as much caffeine as a cup of premium coffee. The standard dose is about 10 milligrams, so such products are not intended to be single-serve.
Keber has more than 40 employees after acquiring four #$%$ businesses and is negotiating to take over two more. To support the growing empire, Dixie has hired three law firms, five consultants, a graphic designer, and a security company.
#$%$ has created a cottage industry. This business is growing exponentially,” Keber said during an interview in his office, where he proudly showcases Dixie’s most recent honor: a fake marijuana leaf in a snow globe emblazoned with the words “Most Valuable MMJ Business,” awarded by local #$%$ consultants. (MMJ is industry shorthand for #$%$.)
Great article Doc. Has some fine photos too. Why doesn't Yahoo post that????? LOL LOL Long and strong!! You know last night I had a wicked sinus headdache, and I read somewhere on here to rub a lil hemp oil on ur temples, well I did one side, and I cuddnt believe it but it was instant relief, so I did the other side and the same thing happened. I cuddnt believe it.
I just hope they execute and expand. I'm not sure how much the legal aspect is holding the back. Just imagine building a multi Million dollar plant and the laws change several times. You would be stuck with a huge bill and that could easily sink a business.
That's my greatest concern. I hope they can secure the legal aspects and expand. Only time will tell how big this gets.
Grabbed more at .285 today! I have a feeling after the AG says something good or doesn't say anything at all, & the conference the weekend after next. Things will be only up and up! Man, all I have to say is #$%$ cup 2013, Colorado~ It's going to be huge! Plus once this next round of earnings come in, it'll settle the minds of the many who are worried if these companies can actually produce these figures that they have predicted! Till then,load up I will. Though, these commissions suck as I'm with scottrade, and I tried to open a account with etrade yesterday and have never had such a horrible experience with getting funds cleared, and now I have to wait till next tuesday in that department. Not too mention etrade platform is 15min behind, unless there is a upgraded one! Anyways wish me luck, As my timing has been horrible these last few days! Still I remain, Long mjna, and long this sector!
