Sugarmade is focusing its hydroponic agricultural supplies operation on the emerging hemp industry Passage of the 2018 Farm Bill opened the gates to a new wave of hemp farming that portends a possible boom market The hemp industry has suffered from the same banking antipathy afflicting state-legal marijuana businesses because of federal regulation of cannabis’ drug uses Congress has begun considering legislation that would potentially bar federal agencies from penalizing financial institutions that serve cannabis-related businesses

Jul 21, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president and his defeated election rival met Saturday for the first time since the divisive April poll and rode together on a recently opened subway in the capital, signaling a calming of political tensions in the world's third-largest democracy. In a choreographed spectacle, President Joko Widodo and former special forces general Prabowo Subianto met and embraced at a gleaming new subway station in Jakarta and sat together chatting on a short train trip.

Hong Kong court throws out ex-leader's misconduct conviction

Jul 21, 2019

HONG KONG — A Hong Kong court on Wednesday threw out former Chief Executive Donald Tsang's conviction for misconduct relating to a property deal while in office. Tsang was released in January after serving a 12-month sentence for failing to disclose plans to rent a luxury apartment from a businessman granted a government broadcasting license. A panel of five judges on the Court of Final Appeal ruled that the judge at Tsang's trial had not given jurors sufficient directions on assessing whether he had deliberately concealed information before finding him guilty in 2017. The judges also ordered that no retrial...

When disaster hits, Indonesia's Islamists are first to help

Jul 21, 2019

PALU, Indonesia — The flags hanging outside Anwar Ragaua's house have drawn warnings from police, but the wiry 50-year-old vows he's not taking them down. After all, the police weren't there to help when he was the sole fisherman in his village to survive the tsunami that inundated the Indonesian city of Palu at dusk on Sept. 28. Nor was the government. Nor were the aid organizations that swept into the stricken region in remote central Sulawesi. Instead, the first people to offer him hope — and a new boat — were deployed by a hardline Islamic group notorious for...

China issues travel alerts, slams US 'interference'

Jul 21, 2019

BEIJING — China issued a pair of travel warnings for the U.S. on Tuesday and slammed what it called "interference" in its internal affairs. Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang accused the U.S. of acting in bad faith in trade negotiations and said any attempts to interfere or undermine China's stability would be "doomed to fail." The volleys of criticism between the two largest economies leave them further than ever from resolving their standoff over U.S. complaints that Beijing resorts to unfair trade practices and unscrupulous methods to obtain advanced technologies. The Chinese comments followed a statement from the U.S. Trade...
