"The amendment to the '2018 Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Bill' bars the Department of Justice from using federal funds to keep states from implementing their own laws that allow the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana. In other words, the DOJ is prohibited from investigating medical marijuana cases or enforcing federal marijuana laws in states where cannabis has been legalized for medical use.

"The presence of CIIX is growing steadily as the company continues diversifying its cannabis market entry points. One of the company's key focuses at present is investing in the distribution and R&D of cannabidiol-based (CBD) health products and medicines to Chinese-speaking consumers.

"In addition to its activities in China and the United States, CIIX is expanding its presence in other countries and recently incorporated CBD Biotechnology Inc. in British Columbia, Canada, to focus on the R&D and distribution of health products in Canada, including hemp-based CBD, food products and beverage items."
