San Francisco, California-based Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR)hasn’t had a great run this year, and things don’t seem to be getting any better lately. On 9th November, Twitter COO, Adam Bain, announced his departure from the company after a 6 year stint. Less than a month later, on Friday,Twitter’s VP of global online sales, Richard Alfonsi also followed suit, announcing his exit via a ‘tweet’. What’s worrying is that Alfonsi’s departure is just one of the many executive departuresthis year. Separately, Keith Coleman will be the third person to don the hat of Twitter’s product head this year, a fact that illustrates how bad things have been. Beyond the obvious reasons why investors should be worried, this executive exodus comes with a less visible impact that could seriously dent shareholders.

Investors who were looking to learn a little more about up-and-coming drug development company Vitality Biopharma Inc (OTCMKTS:VBIO) may want to mark December 8th on their calendar…. if they’re going to be in the Los Angeles area that day anyway. The company will be making a presentation that day, at the annual LD Micro Main Event. Interested and approved investors can attend the VBIO presentation by registering beforehand with LD Micro.
Vitality Biopharma has found a way to make cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals without the usual downside of cannabinoids. Namely, Vitality Biopharma’s version of cannabinoids are non-psychotropic, meaning larger, more effective dosing is possible without the ‘high’. It’s this little detail that takes cannabinoid medicine — already the most compelling frontier in the world of pharma — to the next level. There’s a reason some people think the cannabinoid market could be worth $20 billion by 2020.
The idea was significantly advanced in early November. In eight of the nine states voters were asked about legalization of marijuana (for one reason or another), voters said yes….. four for recreational use, and four for medical use. In eight of those nine states, the measures passed. Marijuana is legal in more than half the United States now, and we’re en route to a decided majority in the foreseeable future.
VBIO didn’t necessarily need a sweeping victory at the ballot box, but each time marijuana wins, it seems to advance the discussion of the power of cannabinoids as medicine.
Investors will be able to learn more about Vitality Biopharma’s work in that arena on Thursday of this week. On that day — 8 AM PST / 11 AM EST — at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel in Los Angeles, CA. Robert Brooke, CEO of Vitality Biopharma, will be making a presentation as well as meeting with current and prospective investors.
