Cannabis Industry Leaders Vying for Land & Asset Acquisitions for Grow Operations

PR Newswire

PALM BEACH, Florida, December 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

New legal marijuana markets and opportunities within the US cannabis industry are spurring development of new products and services as well as fueling the acquisition of land and other resources to capitalize on early momentum and cultivate efficiently heading into the new year. Today's Cannabis / Legal Marijuana companies in focus include: Arcturus Growthstar Technologies Inc. (OTC: AGSTF), American Cannabis Company, Inc. (OTC: AMMJ), Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), Terra Tech Corp. (OTC: TRTC) and GB Sciences, Inc. (OTC: GBLX).

Arcturus Growthstar Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: AGSTF)(CSE: AGS.CN) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Definitive Agreement ("the Contract") to acquire a 15-acre parcel of land in Redland, Florida, in a county that is designated to legally cultivate, process and dispense cannabis . Redland is an unincorporated community within Miami-Dade County, with Biscayne National Park to the east and Everglades National Park to the west. Redland is a Miami suburb and a major agricultural area. Miami-Dade County is referred to as the nation's "Salad Bowl" and "Winter Bread Basket." Read this and more news for Arcturus Growthstar at

"We are pleased to have reached this Contract to acquire this prime parcel of land as it has a long history as a plant nursery, which was first established in 1963," says Mr. William Gildea, Arcturus Growthstar Technologies Inc.'s CEO and Chairman. "Florida's Legislature is beginning the process of figuring out how to implement Amendment 2, which expands the legalization of medical marijuana in Florida by allowing higher-strength marijuana to be used for a wider list of medical ailments. With this 15-acre acquisition, Arcturus is positioning itself to be a part of Florida's cannabis market as it rolls out in 2017."

With this acquisition and the previously announced 10-acre greenhouse acquisition near Orlando, Arcturus has the potential, if fully licensed, to develop 25-acres of cannabis crops. If current state projections for the cannabis market size hold up to their $1.8B projection by 2020, Florida will have considerable demand for medical marijuana, even without factoring in the potential for recreational legislation. This is an exciting acquisition for Arcturus as the 15-acre farm is located in a designated legal grow zone with close proximity to Miami. Arcturus and its experienced team of operators, including John Sweeney, former VP of Operations for Tilray's 60,000-square foot Vancouver facility, is in a unique position as a Canadian based company because it is poised to quickly commence operations within the United States rather than potentially wait years to become a licensed producer under Canadian law.
