I also see the buyout alternative very much in play. 22nd Century has patents and knowledge along with product lines that could be of value to Big Tabacco as we are in a environment where alternative combustible approaches need to be implemented.
I posted a response back to jockin and said everything after the meeting was settling. I even like The MJ angle they hinted at. I have sold a bunch of early shares but I am still in 30 percent. I need to be convinced now that we see a developing upward trend before I buy more. Looks like all the momentum hinged on uplisting we need solid catalyst that we can know revenues will start to ramp.
Laron I thought you were on vacation. Question is chinaman still alive ?
Thanks jockin this board needs some substance. The song remains the same and that's settling. One question is that someone on IHUB said Marijuana was breifly mentioned. I am wondering where that might get some legs going forward ?
Britain today who else tommorrow. Also a company like ourselves needs to develop the Brand. If you are Marlboro you already have the signature name that's really moslty what you need in case this happens. For us we will have our name but the nicotine tar content etc might be in very small letters. Anyway obviously I am hoping this whole thing gets voted down cross your fingers.
I would agree it is almost strange to have that kind of urgency. And it would appear they see certain valuable assets in their hands. They are showing their hand and it has to be very welcomed by the shareholders.You have to wonder why the shorts aren't seeing that.......
I also brought this article to the boards attention and not one reply. This is surely a conundrum at the very least if brands cannot differentiate themselves and that includes 22nd Century Brands !!!!
Too funny I brought this up a few here bought in to this idea. It's the one thing we have truly relevant to the times. Everybody in the Tobaccco biz must reavaluate where they are in redefining their product portfolio and 22nd Century has what they need !!!!!

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain plans to force tobacco firms to sell cigarettes in plain packets without branding to improve public health and cut the number of child smokers, a government minister said on Thursday, dismaying the industry and delighting anti-smoking campaigners.
The government said it wanted to leave space on cigarette packaging only for graphic health warnings, after holding a short final consultation on the issue, and said the rule could become law within a year.
The move would make Britain the second country in the world and the first in Europe to introduce mandatory plain cigarette packets, which could prompt others to follow suit.
In 2012, Australia enacted a groundbreaking law forcing cigarettes to be sold in plain olive green packaging with images showing damaging effects of smoking such as lung and mouth cancer.
Tobacco is responsible for 6 million deaths a year and the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that number could rise beyond 8 million by 2030.
As well as causing cancer and other chronic respiratory conditions, smoking is also a major contributor to cardiovascular diseases, the world's No. 1 killer.
Jane Ellison, a junior British minister responsible for public health, said draft regulations and the results of a short consultation would be published as early as this month allowing enough time for the government to bring in new laws before an election in May 2015.
The government said a review it had commissioned in November threw up compelling evidence that plain packaging would raise public health and reduce the incidence of child smokers.
"It is in my view highly likely that standardised packaging would serve to reduce the rate of children taking up smoking," said Cyril Chantler, a 74-year-old paediatrician and ex-smoker who conducted the review. "The evidence base is modest and it has limitations, but it points in a single direction, and I am not aware of any evidence pointing the other way."
Moves to ban branding on cigarette packets to make them less appealing to smokers, and above all children, have pitted tobacco producers against governments and anti-smoking lobbyists around the globe.
New Zealand and Ireland also plan to introduce plain packaging while five countries have lodged a complaint with the World Trade Organisation to try to overturn Australia's laws.
Britain's opposition Labour Party welcomed steps towards a ban on branded cigarette packets, but criticised the Conservative-led government for delaying a final decision by holding a consultation.
"Over 70,000 children will have taken up smoking since the government announced the review," Labour health spokeswoman Luciana Berger told parliament. "How many
People like me bought in initialy at .14 taking some off the table. Alot of news is out now.Vicg dividend is not as great as it looks and the CNBC interview will haav a day effect.And the stock has nver really corrected. That being said I still own half my shares and have been waiting for a good time to add back in. They might have just done that.
Just a thought.....
This month. Should be great exposure perhaps the best we could have hoped for right now.Free advertising
riting has been on the wall now. Of course they will come back if it goes much higher telling us this was their strategy. Who was it that said we were going to one dollar. I think his name was NO CENTS lol
Instead of constantly pumping out information that is already known please just use that same energy to actuall get the products to market. And also why don't you put out a PR explaining the Compny's cash situation.Lastly why don't you explain the partnerships in terms of financial agreements. You are transparent . I am a long and I see great thing sgreat potential especially in the Organic area. Give us some meat to chew on not just think about..thank you
larson have a nice time. I an going on Cruise in a few weeks but I will have internet access..so no problems here.Congats on ISR
In one fell swoop this thing could charge back to 6.......
I bet you all were wishing you would have pulled the trigger at 3.06 today I know I was one. Today could mean a cosmic shift in the dynamic for the stock. This might have been a last hurrah for the shorts at these prices as they valiantly tried to make an attempt to get this under 3.Finally we may see some real conviction in the buyers we shall see.For one night at least we can sleep well.
This is where they need to be proactive I have been saying this about Vcig as well they need to at least file for patents...crazy to me how they leave that part out of the equation.
Where has this guy been..lol
