Vegas Voyage and Pot Profits
I spent this past week out in Las Vegas at an investment conference. I was there in part to hear some of the featured speakers. But my real reason for being there was to be one of those speakers.
I literally just walked in my front door — after a harrowing trip back, might I add.
It Started to Go Bad Slowly...
It all started as we were in a taxi on our way to the airport. I got an update from my Apple Wallet app that my flight that was supposed to leave at 2:35 p.m. was delayed until 3:00 p.m.
“No problem,” I thought. I had a connecting flight out of Dallas, but I had an hour between the two legs, so it would be tight but still doable.
Then things got progressively worse. I got another notification as I was walking toward the security checkpoint that the flight now had an estimated departure time of 5:30 p.m. That was three hours after it was supposed to leave. And that would put me in Dallas about two hours after my connecting flight left.
I rushed back to the ticket counter to see what they could do. And here was the bright point. The folks at American did everything they could to get me back to Baltimore today. And the best solution they could find was booking me a ticket on a rival airline’s flight.
I was impressed as I hurried over to Delta’s desk to check in for my new flight... that was boarding in a half-hour. I couldn't believe American would go so far as to pay another airline just to make sure a customer got where he was supposed to go.
It was right about then that I made a critical mistake. It was one I wouldn't even realize I'd made until I got to Baltimore around midnight...
You see, I'd checked a bag with American for my original flight. And they assured me it'd be transferred to whatever flight they changed me to. So, when I checked in at the Delta kiosk, I said I had no bags to check. Because I didn’t have one anymore. I'd already checked it.
But what I didn’t think of at the time was that meant, as far as Delta was concerned, I was flying without luggage. Oops.
Everything else with my flights went remarkably smoothly. I got through security pretty quickly — kudos to the TSA at McCarran. I got the train to my terminal in time and got to the gate just as the plane was boarding.
It was a smooth flight to Detroit, where I had an hour layover before boarding a flight to Baltimore.
It was a quick flight. I think the pilot was in a hurry. The takeoff angle was practically vertical. And when we touched down in Baltimore, we got to the end of the runway a little too soon and he had to lock up the brakes for a bit to make the turn.
But all in all, and compared to the way it started, the travel day ended pretty well...
Which is why I should have expected what happened next.
Fear and Loathing Lost Clothing in Las Vegas
No bag at the baggage claim. Yep. Never made it onto my flight out of Vegas.
But to find that out, I had to make a few trips between the two airlines — which are practically at opposite ends of the airport in Baltimore.
You’ll remember that Delta had no record of me flying with a bag. And American thought Delta already had the bag.
So, the bag would eventually get to American in Baltimore, but they wouldn’t know that Delta was looking for it to give it to me. And Delta wouldn’t know it was here because it would come on an American plane.
So, about an hour and a half after we landed, I got a claim ticket from Delta that they'd be tracking my bag and confirmation from American that my bag was still in Vegas waiting for my original flight to Dallas to take off.
Yeah, I forgot to tell you, my first flight still hasn’t left. Well, it might have by the time you read this. But as I write (at around three in the morning), that flight’s not expected to take off until 9:00 a.m.
So, hopefully, by the time you're reading this, my bag is at least on its way to Dallas.
What a freaking long day.
Thanks for listening to that. I feel better. I think I really needed to gripe a little.
And now, back to my point. I’m sure I had one of those when I started.
Ah, that’s right: the conference...
Pot Profits and Reefer Royalties
I was out there with my colleague, Briton Ryle, to talk about cannabis investments. Brit and I co-run an investment advisory service. And our readers have had some really great success in the legal cannabis market.
So, Brit and I headed out to Vegas to share a little bit of our research. And it was very well received. But that’s not really surprising. I mean, we were there to help folks find solid investments in this budding industry. Who wouldn’t want to hear about those?
But the thing is, Brit and I only released a fraction of our research on the cannabis industry at the conference. We’ve been studying it for years now, waiting for an opportune time to get involved.

Now, that may sound odd, since there have been so many stellar gains from cannabis stocks already. But Brit and I weren’t looking for those kinds of companies. For every one of them that shot up 1,000%, there were 10 that went bankrupt.
We run a long-term investing service. It’s not about short-term trading. It’s about constant growth, steady income, and big profits over the long run.
We wanted to wait until the froth had settled a little more before getting involved. So, we watched and we waited. And we researched every company we came across.
And that’s when we found three of the biggest opportunities in the legal cannabis market. Three companies with solid business plans, insulation from the volatility that goes with the cannabis industry, and the promise of growing income to pad those profits.
Saving the Best for Y-O-U
Now, we didn’t let the folks at the conference in on all the details of the opportunities our research uncovered. But we are going to reveal everything to you, right here in Wealth Daily.
That’s right. You’ll have first access to every scrap of this groundbreaking research. And you’ll get to be the first to invest in these three near-guaranteed winners.
The legal global cannabis market is nearing $31.4 billion per year. But that’s nothing compared to what’s to come.
Some estimates put the potential U.S. market alone as high as $45 billion per year once federal prohibition is repealed.
If ever there was a perfect time to get invested in these first-movers, it’s now.
The volatility is still there, but the rampant scams and bankruptcies aren’t.
It’s time to start letting cannabis profits and reefer royalties fill your retirement account. It's time to harness the growth and staying power of these soon-to-be industry titans.
So keep your eyes out for an email coming soon giving you all the juicy, profitable details.
I’m going to go get some sleep now.
