  1. One might be inclined to think Aleafia were on the right track by firing Julian Fantino and Raf Souccar, but this issuance is a senseless cash grab by a company not necessarily wanting to appear as desperate as they are.

    Look for the Aleafia Yard Sale (e.g. assets and properties sold off to pay warrants) by Nov. 2020.
