WE HAVE YOUR BACK is no joke to us. Our mission is to provide the most reliable information available and offer viewers and followers a soft landing. Not as a secondary source but a preferred destination. For the last 100 years cannabis, whether hemp or marijuana, was illegal in most federal and state jurisdictions; accordingly, like Prohibition, prospering outside the law. With its newfound value, cannabis has been resurrected as a legal cash crop. Yet the taint of its nefarious past remains and percolates in the legal trade. From experts morphing from the black market to academics used textbook knowledge, the cannabis business lacks the talent to become a major economic force. The industry has become an assortment of characters taking available of misinformation and lack of information. As for technology, what was used in the environment of not taxes and freewheeling enterprises remains the flavor of the day.
Cannabis endures as a very profitable underground business from homemakers with a few plants to million dollars ventures with international distribution. At least 70 percent of all consumer sales are illegal, while the legal producers and marketers fight the fed and states for territory. The illegal culture’s playbook is the operating manual for today’s business. Nothing has changed as if “moonshine technology” and business practices remain the business model. The only difference are the legal operators having a partner that dictates terms including the proverbial casino skim in the form of taxes.
Our mission is to provide Reliable Information, and rely on the GREENMARK 101 algorithm and its forerunner the Subjective Probability + Game Theory Model for the answers and means to profit from mistakes made by others. Not one cannabis information service, whether free or otherwise, has a better track record than GREENMARK 101. Not our statement, but the results and conclusions that our news pages reported.
Preeminent information sources on everything cannabis is our forte. In the last three years, we have proven our worth, especially with the level of misinformation, false claims and business data broadcasted by investment bankers, industrial sources and stock promoters. Deception and distortion by others compromised potential participants to discriminate between correct and incorrect information. Lies masquerading as opinions by investment bankers and stock promoters have damaged the integrity of the industry.
HOW TO DETERMINE INFORMATION RELIABILITY?
By choosing either to respond or ignore an information source, depends on who presents the data and under the circumstances. The only means to determine reliability is by the results. Thus, the bodies of knowledge about the past documented by recordkeepers, together with assembly and disclosure of knowledge are considered probable, historical facts are the backbone of GREENMARK 101.
By determining the reliability of information establish the ethical standard of the provider.
We define the reliability of information as the probability that the information was correct and introduced as trustworthy when readers can verify it. Our algorithms realized that when the information presented by a reliable authority is given it is accepted at face value unless the information proved not to be accurate from a historical perspective. Application of this theory is a “data-level 14” within our menu : (1) All information recognized by a known source are calibrated by timing, bias, conflicts of interests and the basis of the disclosure; (2) Known memory about information by the receiver is factored as shorter than that of providers, and (3) Information providers continue to present unreliable facts as long as a vested interest is at stake.
Date-level 9 identified as “Recognized Logic” is similar to what Wall Street calls “Efficient Market Theory.” Under EFMT, stock market’s prices reflect all available information. GREENMARK 101 algorithm has given us a unique insight to assess information within the context of investment values.
