Medical marijuana could be covered by insurance, experts say

New rules allowing the sale of cannabis oil smooth way for more controlled prescription of drug

  • Canadians who have been prescribed medical marijuana could one day see their insurance company footing the bill, experts predict, following the introduction of new Health Canada rules that allow for the sale of cannabis oils.

Health Canada announced revamped medical marijuana regulations earlier this month after the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that users of the drug should be permitted to consume it in other forms, such as oils and edibles, rather than having to smoke dried buds.

“You’re going to see insurance companies slowly start to creep into the sector,” says Khurram Malik, an analyst at Jacob Securities Inc., noting that the new regulations will allow medical marijuana producers to sell gel caps similar to those made from cod liver oil.

That will allow for more precise dosing, Malik says.

“When you’re trying to smoke a plant you have no idea how much you’re consuming, so that makes doctors a little nervous,” he said.

Legitimizing the drug

Experts say the changes are a major step towards legitimizing the drug in the eyes of doctors and insurers.

“When something doesn’t look different than other medicines, it becomes much easier for people to get comfortable with the idea that this is, in fact, a possible treatment option for patients,” says Bruce Linton, the chief executive of Smiths Falls, Ont.-based Tweed Marijuana Inc.

However, medical marijuana producers still have one major hurdle to overcome before insurers begin routinely funding the drug — cannabis currently doesn’t have a drug identification number, known as a DIN.

“If it was issued a DIN by Health Canada, it’s quite likely that the insurance companies would cover it,” says Wendy Hope, a spokeswoman for the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association Inc.

“To obtain a DIN, the new form of medical marijuana would need to go through the full Health Canada approval process like any new drug.”

As it stands, most insurance companies don’t routinely cover medical marijuana. But some insurers, including Manulife, say they will consider making an exception if the employer has specifically requested it for one of its employees.

Up to the employer

“It’s up to the employer to ask if they want to have it covered,” says Hope.

Earlier this year, Sun Life agreed to pay for a University of Waterloo student’s medical marijuana prescription through his student health plan after the student union went to bat for him. Jonathan Zaid, 22, uses the drug to combat a syndrome called new daily persistent headache.

Some health insurance companies may pay for medical marijuana through a health spending account, says Hope. But, she adds, “my understanding is it doesn’t happen often.”

Malik says the primary reason why medical marijuana doesn’t have a DIN is a lack of rigorous, clinical research on its efficacy.

“The evidence is very circumstantial — not your typical 10-year, double-blind study that doctors and big pharmaceutical companies like to see,” Malik said.

He suspects that’s about to change.

Need for DIN numbers

“You’re going to see a lot of Canadian companies partnering up with universities overseas that are a little more progressive than the ones we have here, at least in this space, to drive this research forward and legitimize it in the eyes of doctors and get DIN numbers on these things,” Malik said.

Malik says there is a financial incentive for insurers to pay for medical marijuana, rather than shelling out for pricier chronic pain drugs such as opiates.

“From a dollars and cents standpoint, if marijuana is the same thing as a narcotic opiate, they would much rather cover marijuana because they’re in the business to make money,” Malik said.

Lithium demand from Electric Vehicles, “EVs,” alone could grow 30% annually for years to come

Lithium demand from Electric Vehicles, “EVs,” alone could grow 30% annually for years to come

Jul 17, 2015 | Posted by: Peter Epstein

 

  • Conventional wisdom seems to say that overall lithium demand will grow by 8%-12% annually
  • Everything’s going electric, lithium-ion batteries large & small will reign supreme

A short time ago, manufactures released hybrid gasoline-electric cars so that they could claim to be green companies. That has completely changed, now the race is on for market share, volumes and profits.

I’m on record as stating that demand for lithium will grow faster than most believe. Conventional wisdom seems to say that overall lithium demand will grow by 8%-12% annually. I understand why that range has been adopted, it’s already a fast growth rate by historical standards. Commodity and natural resource demand is frequently said to increase at, “the rate of GDP growth.” I wonder which country’s GDP rate is being referred to, hopefully not the U.S. A prime reason for my bullishness on lithium demand, with overall growth closer to 20% a year, is that Tesla is attracting A LOT of attention and competition. I will spare readers the obligatory rattling off a list of Tesla’s growing competition. But there’s much more to the story than Tesla.

I believe that hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles will be phased out sooner rather than later. Any manufacturer that can’t deliver a full EV within the next 2-4 years might as well start working on flying cars, previously known as airplanes. This paradigm shift to EVs is not 5-10 years away, it’s right around the corner. Hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars are deployed on new car platforms, why would it be any different for the builders of EVs? A short time ago, manufactures released hybrid gasoline-electric cars so that they could claim to be, “green” companies. That’s completely changed, now the race is on for market share, volumes and profits.

RANGE ANXIETY!!

“Range anxiety.” That’s the cool way of saying that prospective buyers of EVs are on the fence, until they’re confident that a massive infrastructure of electric charging stations is in place. Guess what? That’s nonsense. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, average daily driving per capita is about 40 miles. Commuters that drive 100-150 miles or more round trip are the exception, not the rule. Does 40 miles per day sound too low? That’s the U.S. average, the range around that average is probably fairly large. Take for example city dwellers that don’t drive daily.

If one were talking about natural gas stations, “range anxiety” would be a serious concern. Recall that T. Boone Pickens has been calling for the replacement of gasoline and diesel fueled cars with cleaner burning natural gas. In that highly unlikely scenario there would have to be a huge build out of natural gas stations. Not so with EVs. Electric Vehicles won’t require an epic rollout of thousands upon thousands of charging stations. As EVs evolve, there will be dozens of models with driving ranges in excess of 100 miles. By then, range anxiety will disappear. Instead of searching for a charging station, one’s garage electricity outlet will do the trick.

Everything’s going electric, lithium-ion batteries large & small will reign supreme

Admittedly there are occasions when long distances are called for. In this circumstance, let’s assume that a gasoline powered vehicle remains the best alternative. That still allows for EVs to potentially become 1 of the 2 vehicles in a suburban family. That equates to a staggering amount of lithium demand without the need of ubiquitous charging stations. The same will be the case for bikes, motorcycles, mail delivery vehicles and buses, (among others). That’s why I believe that the annual growth rate of lithium demand for EVs alone could be as high as 30%, a tripling in 5 years. If the fastest growing segment were to triple (30% growth annually from 2016-2020), that suggests 20% overall demand growth for lithium is not a crazy assumption.

Without range anxiety, EVs will become ubiquitous, not charging stations! This is especially true given that Nissan, Ford, GM and Toyota, (among others) will be coming out with a number of inexpensive EVs with price tags in the $20k-$25k range sooner rather than later. That’s before considering favorable State and/or Federal tax treatment. Importantly, the lower price point EVs will not necessarily use less lithium. Not if they want to achieve high milage per charge. Miles per charge will be a key determinate of customer preference. Note that inexpensive EVs will benefit as much as high end EVs, from lower annual operating expenses by plugging in instead of filling up.

Dajin Resources Corp. (DJI.V) / (DJIFF) a high risk / high return opportunity

While the available supply of lithium is difficult to forecast, and will come on-stream unevenly, demand growth for EVs alone could be two or three times that of today’s consensus. Clearly, the demand for lithium will be lower or higher than expected. Readers probably know which side of the coin I’m betting on. That’s why I like a small cap, pure-play lithium company named Dajin Resources Corp. (DJI.V) (DJIFF). Combined U.S. and Canadian trading volume is averaging roughly 625,000 shares per day. The company has no debt and a solid balance sheet. Warrant exercises have been helping to maintain adequate cash balances.

Taking a contrarian view by being substantially more bullish on lithium demand from EVs, calls for an investment approach that differs from those who follow the crowd. Following the crowd is prudent if conventional wisdom prevails. However, for those like me who believe overall demand for lithium could grow by 20% annually, (30% for EVs alone), a way to articulate a bullish position is through juniors such as Dajin Resources. Taking a contrarian view entails both higher risk and higher reward. Unlike following the crowd though, an investment in Dajin Resources could play off quite handsomely. With properties in both Nevada’s Lithium Hub, located approximately 12 km northeast of Rockwood’s decades long Nevada operations and a very large land position in Argentina’s, Lithium Triangle. This company’s tock is strongly positioned to move considerably higher upon an increase in lithium prices and/or a rebound in the morbid TSX Venture Exchange.

Brazilian and North American fertilizer demand to rally

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:56 PM on Monday, July 20th, 2015

20140514-dusolo200

  • Global fertilizer demand set to recover in the second half of 2015
  • PotashCorp reported that it expects the recent rise of global planted acreages to slow
  • Brazilian fertilizer purchases “are expected to accelerate in the third quarter and could lead to a more condensed delivery period”

Global fertilizer demand is set to recover in the second half of 2015, as farmer demand from North America and Brazil recovers, Canadian producer PotashCorp has said.

PotashCorp also reported that it expects the recent rise of global planted acreages to slow, as agricultural commodity markets cool.

North American potash demand is expected to rise as farmers address a mounting deficit in application.

Brazilian potash demand is expected to accelerate ahead of the country’s main planting season, helped by a recent improvement in crop prices, and a recently announced farm credit programme.

Improved demand

“Following a slower start in Brazil, we anticipate potash imports will accelerate during the third quarter,” PotashCorp said.

Brazilian fertilizer purchases “are expected to accelerate in the third quarter and could lead to a more condensed delivery period,” PotashCorp Said.

“Potash demand in Brazil slowed in first-half 2015 as farmers were concerned about weaker crop prices, the lower purchasing power of the Real and delayed credit availability from the government,” the report said.

The same dynamics will be seen in urea, with imports improving in the third quarter of 2015, in line with the same time last year, when imports reached a record 4m tonnes over the year. Brazilian phosphate imports are also seen rising next quarter.

Tentative buyers

North American demand is also expected to rise against the first half of the year, leaving full year sales down from the record 63m tonnes achieved in 2014 but remaining “at historically strong levels”.

“In North America, demand was lower in the first half of 2015 but is expected to be similar to historical levels in the second half”, the report said.

“Buyers were tentative in the first half as the spring application window was shortened and farmers weighed the impact of lower crop prices,” the report said, also noting record offshore imports pressuring North American producer sales.

“We expect healthy demand in the second half as crop prices have improved and farmers look to replenish soil nutrients after recent large harvests,” said PotashCorp.

Mounting deficit

The increased North American demand is driven by a mounting potash deficit.

PotashCorp notes that application rates have held steady in North America over the past 30 years, while yields per acre have increased significantly thanks to the use of higher-yield cultivars.

As a result of this, PotashCorp estimates that since 2010, the depletion of potash in US farmland soil has exceeded application by more than 7m short tons per year.

“Closing this gap would require farmers to nearly double application rates compared to current levels,” PotashCorp said.

The group notes application deficits across US growing regions, with the largest in the Central Plains.

“Relatively large potash application deficits were found in most major crop producing regions of the US,” the report said.

Farmland growth to ease

PotashCorp also noted that expects the rate of increase in global planted acreages to slow.

By breaking new ground, and by double and triple cropping existing ground, PotashCorp reports that farmers have added over 160 million planted acres to agricultural production in the past ten years, “an area similar to that of the US corn and soybean crop”.

“In response to rising global demand and higher crop prices, farmers have increased planted acreage over the past decade,” PotashCorp said.

As global commodity prices slow, PotashCorp expects that the rate of increase in planted area could slow, and “some marginal acreage could be removed from production”.

Chinese demand

In China, PotashCorp expects “strong farmer affordability and agronomic need will continue to have a positive impact on potash demand in 2015″.

Supply contracts to China have already been negotiated by the North American potash cartel Canpotex, of with PotashCorp is a member.

Canpotex has also signed supply deals to Indian groups, where PotashCorp expects “continued growth in 2015″.

PotashCorp estimates Indian imports at 5m tonnes over the whole 2015.

Kharif planting

The group reports that India’s monsoon “got off to a strong start in June, which supported Kharif crop planting and fertilizer demand”.

Kharif crops, usually grains and pulses, are planted with the start of the monsoon rains.

PotashCorp expects Indian urea imports to slow from the recent rapid pace, but leaving 2015 purchases well above last year.

India is expected to import over 5m tonnes of diammonium phosphate in 2015, compared to 3.6m in 2014.
