Thanks for links. Interesting information about KAYS former Executive Consultant and his company Professional Cannabis, especially if you look closely! Much more hollow and shell like than solid as implied by the website and his title of 'Executive Consultant'. http://egov.sos.state.or.us/br/pkg_web_name_srch_inq.show_detl?p_be_rsn=1817888&p_srce=BR_INQ&p_print=FALSE
A quick read shows Dan Goldin has been registered as a domestic business corporation that came into existence Feb 29th, 2016, or less than 30 days, and that he operates out of what appears <google maps> to be his apartment which coincidentally is located less than 3 blocks away from the 1st Kaya Shack.
This is a little confusing since Dan states how hard he worked for KAYS during the first quarter while posting on this board on 3/18 that he no longer works for them.

Now I see why he didn't want to answer how long he worked there. I guess for some of us two weeks in your apartment inventing the pre-roll is hard work.
To pursue some new ventures but if they need my services again, I'll be happy to help.
We really worked hard the first quarter of this year to make improvements.
The Website, which doesn't mention KAYS in it's portfolio, does list four companies with Trademark(?) names all of which are registered as ABNs by Dan 4-5 days after Dan started his company. The Trademark piece just adds to the lack of credibility that Dan offers us. Trademarks are a federally regulated protection and as such, cannabis businesses cannot receive one. I would tend to think there would be a liability associated with unauthorized use of the TM symbol. www.professionalcannabis.com
Also, of interest as I looked at this website was that Dan offers "-going public" as one of the services he provides. It just seems hard to imagine that an 'executive' consultant operating out of his apartment, who's business is less than 1 month old and appears to have had one client in his '20 years of' experience would be qualified to assist anyone in going public, unless "going public" is what you do to save water in the heat of inventing the worlds first pre-roll.
Makes one wonder if Dan is getting the expert advice on going public from the notorious William David Jones.
And now to end on an equally humorous note, another gem from Dan:
What I saw was David Jones, a very nice individual who genuinely was working very hard for Kaya holdings and Kaya Shack, working to make the company successful for 3000 shareholders while staying 100% compliant.
When I was there we increased profits, lowered cost of goods, and increased output. Have a great Saturday.
