"Ask for an artist or title. I made it easy anyway. Nancy Lyons has some great knowledge that she's dropping right now. In the chat. She's saying there's an anniversary today. Okay for March madness. You tell me what the anniversary instead? I figured, you know, we're just starting college. Okay? All season. I know about college basketball is a ways off. All right, You tell me. Well, I'll tell you why I picked it. How's that sounds good, Detroit Headline says. Final four. The headline on The Bloomberg Terminal also says Elite eight and you have both in March Madness in any case. It's all about, you know, eight months into the year. Yes and P 500 up more than 20%. What happens when the index you know, moves that much in so short a time span. For the rest of the year. You know, it's something that Stephen Sutton Meyer over at Bank of America touched on the other day, and I went through the numbers. I mean, he was kind of optimistic about things. I mean, given the track record, I kind of went through and said, huh? Because I looked specifically at the 10 years before this year. And you can go all the way back to 1920 nine's. It happens, um, when the S and P 500 most more than 20% in the first eight months of the year, it's pretty much next back. In fact, to the point where if you look at Arithmetic average. So we have all the percentages up divided by 10. You get a loss of a bit more than 2% for September through December. If instead you take sort of the mid point of the range, kind of what you call the median, you went up with a gain of a little bit more than 2%. So Looking at this. It's like you can't necessarily find a direction based on historical performance. The ranges wild here as you write the final Four months of those years brought everything from a 21% advance. We 32% decline range. That's right. And that 32% declined. By the way, it was 1929. Okay. Oh, in 1987 when another one of these years, So it's definitely skewing the equation. You go back to the mid fifties. That's where you saw that 21% gain. So the markets kind of a bit all over the place. If you want anything that may be more meaningful. Historically, you know, Keith Lerner over truest wealth. He looked at going back to 1980 S and P 500 performance during the year, he pointed out in a report the other day, there are only two years. In which the index failed to declined 5% from a high of course we haven't had one all year. And that was 1995 and 2017. So if you want to take it from that perspective, maybe we're due for a bit of a retreat. If you want to know more folks send an email. I'll get you to chart the explanation goes with it and everything I do. Going forward. The email addresses D. Wilson at Bloomberg dot net. That's D Wilson at Bloomberg dot net.

Black Californians. Yeah, these equity funds for started in Oakland after medical marijuana when activists they're realized that you need a lot of intergenerational wealth to get a store open. You need a million dollars in a year. So what these equity programs try to do is create carve outs in the licensing for equity applicants and provide them loans or job training or incubators. Things have put a stool underneath them so they can reach into the world of cannabis, similar to other people who have different advantages. You know, people who apply who qualify for these equity programs tend to be from neighborhoods that had a lot of drug policing or individuals who had a past cannabis conviction, and that stands apart from past regulations with said If you dealt pot, you couldn't be part of the legal industry and a lot of people have seen problems with that other ways to qualify for equity program are listed in some of these states of they've graduated from the cities of California that the state of California which now is an equity program to further spur these programs locally. And entire other states across the country are starting to consider it sure, let's switch for second toe black owned cannabis businesses that are able to make it in this state. What are some black own weed business is that people should know about Yeah, it bears mentioning that California has one of the oldest legal, medical and adult use markets in the world. African Americans and other people of color have been in on the ground floor since the beginning. And so it makes sense that the California is a place where equity has advanced the furthest We did a story at least, Lee looking at five excellent cannabis businesses in California that are run by African Americans and down in L a your way we're seeing a lot of waves being made. By Chris Ball and rain family farms up here in, um Oakland. We're seeing the Oakland extracts brand from Karen Buxton really take off and then you'll see a lot of former pro athletes in the cannabis space. So you got violet brands from former Golden State Warrior Al Harrington serving really, really great cannabis. Dido for businesses like Deuces 22 from former NBA player John Salley, who took all of his daughter's college money out of her fund at her request to start a cannabis business. You see a lot of African American celebrities that have made money in the cannabis space. The rapper exhibit has a big pre rolled brand called Napalm. And then the famous rapper Jay Z is now in the California market with his brand monogram. You know if people wanted to find black own cannabis businesses, how would they go about doing that? But you have a list yourself. You said it leaflet right? That's correct, and we're adding it to it regularly. We started a new project. At least Lee called Lumen. That's ah digital space, highlighting black voices and cannabis. It's got this Afro futurist look and a tumbler feel, and it's just telling stories of African Americans in the space. You know, Speaking of luminous, Are there any stories that you can just kind of pass pass along quickly here about what's that? What's on looming itself when and why it's important? Yeah, These are national stories of African Americans in the cannabis industry and how they're doing it. So one of the stories involves this gentleman saying and edgy and he's up from Nigeria but also came to America and grew up in a home that wasn't very great, but Basically got in a cannabis and on the ground floor. He talks about sleeping in his dispensary for the first year to keep it going and buying all of his inventory for a store on consignment, similar to the way that Um, cannabis dealers in the streets have had to work on consignment. Well, it's good stuff. I mean, like any business people say you can't be afraid to fail. David Downs is the senior editor with Lee flee dot com David Thanks again for joining us Appreciate it.

"From NPR news. You're listening to KCRW. I'm Larry Peral. President Trump's term has come to a fateful end. And now we're all wondering what in America under Joe Biden will look like he's got a ton on his plate from addressing recent acts of insurgency to climate change to health care. Many in the cannabis community are thinking about what his presidential victory means for the future of the industry, especially now that the anti pot stands taken by the 45th administration is over. David Downs is the California bureau chief relief lee dot com. He joins us Now with a look at whether a pro we'd mindset is expected under the 46th president or if that position will continue. Hi, David. Hey, Larry. So when it comes to wed, Trump's record isn't as clear as his positions on things like immigration or even public health. But his Cabinet members like anti Drug Warrior, Jeff Sessions said, pretty clear tone kind of impacted this presidency have on cannabis reform. Yeah, we saw the president say he was kind of a state's rights guy. But his Republicans in Capitol Hill marched lock steps, timing cannabis law reform for the last four years. There's this perception of them some of his supporters that Trump is okay with marijuana. And the reality is that Senate majority Leader or then Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell went out of his way, along with other of his colleagues to make sure that research and other aspects of marijuana law reform did not advance over the last four years. So here comes Joe Biden. Hey, wasn't the most pro. We'd candidate and Democratic primary and he has a history of pushing punitive anti drug legislation. What do you projecting weed will look like under his presidency. The outlook became better than expected. And it became better when the Georgia Senate race is concluded, and two Senate seats became occupied by Democrats that completely changes the game for The Senate's marijuana calendar in 2021 going forward and now some of legislation that started in the House actually has a chance in the Senate to change cannabis law in America as we know it for the first time substantially substantially since Really 1967 when the Controlled Substances Act placed marijuana as a schedule one drug over the opinions of doctors and labeled it as dangerous as sort of heroin and PCP. You know, Camilla Harris said in 2018. The quote making marijuana illegal at the federal level is the smart thing to do. Do you think that we could be legalized on the federal level under a Biden presidency? Senator Chuck Schumer, who is the majority leader in the Senate, told me that he intends to pass the Maura Act, which the House passed on December 4th. And that is the most far ranging reform for marijuana law. We'll see in our lifetime, it would mean cannabis is not a schedule one drug It would mean expungement for past cannabis crimes and small businesses. Administration loans for cannabis business is it would be a complete, you know. Be a complete turnaround from the federal stance going since for the last couple decades, it would not legalize marijuana at the state level states still have their own controlled Substances Act. But with regard to federal enforcement of marijuana, we we have the possibility of sort of ending the scheduling of cannabis in 2021. One of the biggest complaints among the cannabis industry is that it's currently a cash business would legalizing the business on a federal level change that perhaps Yes, Banks are responding to the Controlled Substances Act and marijuana's placement and schedule. One. If marijuana is D scheduled and removed from the Controlled Substances Act, banks would no longer be violating the Controlled Substances Act when they bank cannabis businesses that are legal in these states. If the more act doesn't pass this year, there's a more tame flavor of reform, called the Safe Banking Act has already made it into the Senate that didn't pass. And that would specifically tell banks that they're okay to bank legal cannabis dollars in these states. You know, it might take a while for any action to blow over on the weed front. What has it been looking like in states that just legalized weed. It is again a new day, and the outlook is better than expected. In this last election. We saw five states legalize cannabis. And now since he's a Republican coat controlled states, there's gonna be some actions around the implementation of legalization. So the Dakotas and Montana and New Jersey are all tussling with what the will of the people actually met when they legalized marijuana as well as Arizona in the 2020 elections, so they're going to be trying to get those programs ups and running. Furthermore, New York Governor Cuomo intends to legalize cannabis this year, and we expect the legislatures of Connecticut, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Maryland. To consider further reforms. Thies Air all Midwest, Southern or Eastern states were far away from the traditional bastions bastions of cannabis law reform. We're truly in the back country of Prohibition, and this is where the battle is going to be fought now. There you go. David Allen's is the California bureau chief for legally dot com.
