PALM BEACH, FL, Nov. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - The constantly evolving cannabis and legal marijuana markets has its sights set on even more growth after recent and current massive momentum following a strong performance on latest introduction of products and services and expanded operations in North America. The cannabis performers this week include: Arcturus Growthstar Technologies Inc. (CSE: AGS.CN), Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: CGC.TO), OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (TSX-V: OGI.V), Mettrum Health Corp. (TSX-V: MT.V) and Aphria, Inc. (TSX-V: APH.V).
Arcturus Growthstar Technologies Inc. (CSE: AGS) (AGSTF) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") 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 primarily a Miami suburb and a major agricultural area. Miami-Dade County is referred to as the nation's "Salad Bowl" and "Winter Bread Basket."

"We are pleased to have reached this LOI 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. "This acquisition will be an all-stock deal and greatly adds to our geographic footprint and overall strategy in the state of Florida. With the recent passage of Amendment 2, an initiative which significantly broadens Florida's medical marijuana program, we want to be firmly established in the state and solidify our first mover advantage in one of the biggest potential cannabis markets in the United States."
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.
