Executed a non-binding letter of intent with IntelGenx Corp. to co-develop and commercialize oral film products infused with recreational and medical cannabis (http://nnw.fm/1TZGe) Received approval from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to import a medical cannabis supply drug for a clinical trial on essential tremor at the University of California San Diego Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research (http://nnw.fm/DrvY9) Regulatory permits approved for export to Germany of medical cannabis flower and full-spectrum medical cannabis oil for patient use (http://nnw.fm/12Aym) Currently supplying products for several different clinical trials in partnership with universities, hospitals and governments in Australia and Canada (http://nnw.fm/SHt5N) Established wholly owned subsidiary High Park Company to produce and distribute a broad-based portfolio of cannabis brands and products in Canada; an investment totaling $100 million that’s expected to grow the company’s Canadian workforce to more than 500 in the next several years

In Deloitte’s 2018 cannabis report (http://nnw.fm/TpE5o), the research firm frames the total cannabis market in Canada as “significant” and one that has “spurred innovation, entrepreneurship and jobs.” Canada’s medical and recreational cannabis market is expected to generate $7.17 billion in total sales in 2019.

Brendan Kennedy, president and chief executive officer of Tilray, notes the company’s strong start to 2018 and offers insight to its future plans in a second quarter earnings report to stakeholders (http://nnw.fm/0h36O).

“Tilray is well-positioned to continue to pioneer the development of the global medical cannabis market and to become a leader in the adult-use cannabis market in Canada,” Kennedy states in the report. “In the second quarter, we generated significant revenue growth as a result of our global strategy, our multinational distribution network and our commitment to research, innovation, quality and operational excellence.”

Financial highlights in the report include an increase in revenue to $9.7 million, up 95.2 percent compared to the second quarter of 2017; a 97 percent increase in total kilogram equivalents sold compared to the prior year; and an average net selling price per gram increase from $6.20 to $6.38.

Business highlights in 2018 to date show Tilray’s successful IPO and funding received from institutional investors that brought $218.6 million to the company; signed agreements to supply cannabis to adult-use consumers in seven Canadian provinces and territories and signed strategic agreements with Sandoz Canada, a division of Novartis, to collaborate on the creation and sale of co-branded and co-developed non-combustible medical cannabis products. Agreements or LOIs were also signed with Shoppers Drug Mart Inc., Canada’s largest pharmacy chain, and Pharmasave, one of Canada’s leading independent pharmacy chains, to provide Tilray products once certain legal steps have been met.

Exports to Argentina, South Africa and the United Kingdom now make Tilray products available in 11 countries on five continents. The company also launched High Park Holdings Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary formed to serve the pending adult-use market in Canada, in addition to the launch of the CANACA brand, which celebrates the historic moment in Canada as it becomes the first G7 nation to federally legalize cannabis for adult-use.

Tilray’s company culture promotes experience, precision, research and care for its customers and clients. Its precisely formulated products are cultivated to meet exacting patient needs and come in two primary forms – extracts and dried flower. Tilray’s product line centers on active ingredients and standardized, well-defined preparations with a focus on patient safety and efficacy.

San Francisco prosecutors turn to AI to reduce racial bias

Jun 18, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — In a first-of-its kind experiment, San Francisco prosecutors are turning to artificial intelligence to reduce racial bias in the courts, adopting a system that strips certain identifying details from police reports and leaves only key facts to govern charging decisions. District Attorney George Gascon announced Wednesday that his office will begin using the technology in July to "take race out of the equation" when deciding whether to accuse suspects of a crime. Criminal-justice experts say they have never heard of any project like it, and they applauded the idea as a creative, bold effort to make charging...

Apple previews new software as it diversifies beyond iPhones

Jun 18, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Apple, beset by falling iPhone sales, announced upcoming changes to its phone and computer software intended to highlight its new digital services and to further position it as a defender of personal privacy. The revisions previewed Monday during a conference in San Jose, California, included a new feature that will let people log into apps and other services with an Apple ID instead of relying on similar sign-in options from Facebook and Google — two companies that mine data to sell advertising. Apple said it won't collect tracking information about users from that service. As part...

Feds to investigate spike in gray whale deaths on West Coast

Jun 18, 2019

SEATTLE — U.S. scientists said Friday they will investigate why an unusual number of gray whales are washing up dead on West Coast beaches. About 70 whales have been found dead so far this year on the coasts of California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska, the most since 2000. About five more have been discovered on British Columbia beaches. That's a very small fraction of the total number of whales believed to have died, because most simply sink and others wash up in such remote areas they're not recorded. NOAA Fisheries on Friday declared the die-off an "unusual mortality event," providing...

Sound barrier to chase seals, prevent shark attacks debated

Jun 18, 2019

BOSTON — A plan to develop an acoustic system to chase away seals in order to prevent shark attacks is the latest front in the debate about how Cape Cod should respond in the wake of last year's shark attacks. Deep Blue LLC presented the idea for an "invisible fence" to the Barnstable County Commissioners on Wednesday, drawing support from some officials and residents but concern from local animal rights groups. Company owner Willy Planinshek envisions a system of underwater audio devices set up at the region's most popular swimming beaches. The devices would be mounted on buoys some distance...

NTSB: Autopilot was in use before Tesla hit semitrailer

Jun 18, 2019

DETROIT — A Tesla Model S involved in a fatal crash with a semitrailer in Florida March 1 was operating on the company's semi-autonomous Autopilot system, federal investigators have determined. The car drove beneath the trailer, killing the driver, in a crash that is strikingly similar to one that happened on the other side of Florida in 2016 that also involved use of Autopilot. In both cases, neither the driver nor the Autopilot system stopped for the trailers, and the roofs of the cars were sheared off. The crash, which remains under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board and...
