(OTCQB: CLSH) (CSE: CLSH), the ''Company'' or ''CLS,'' a diversified cannabis company operating as Cannabis Life Sciences, today announced its financial results for the quarter ending February 29, 2024, and provided a detailed industry analysis in a statement from Chairman and CEO, Andrew Glashow.

CEO Andrew Glashow Shares Insights on Industry and Legislative Hurdles

In a detailed statement to shareholders, Glashow discussed the persistent challenges faced by the cannabis industry, primarily attributed to the absence of substantial federal legislative changes. He highlighted the company's efforts to navigate these challenges through strategic adjustments and operational improvements.

Industry and Legislative Outlook

Mr. Glashow provided a critical view of the cannabis industry's standing in political circles, emphasizing the need for federal reforms to address taxation and banking issues that continue to constrain the sector's growth. He acknowledged improvements at the state level, particularly in Nevada, where regulatory advancements have benefited the industry. However, he maintained a cautious stance on the likelihood of significant federal progress in the near term, suggesting that meaningful change might ultimately arise from Supreme Court action in 2025.
