KELOWNA, BC, April 22, 2017 /CNW/ - Marapharm Ventures Inc. ("Marapharm") (MDM),(MRPHF), (2M0.F) is pleased to announce that Marapharm has been invited by the CSE to attend the Planet Microcap Showcase 2017, in Las Vegas on April 26-28. Linda Sampson and Yari Nieken, directors, will represent Marapharm. As an emerging company Marapharm will participate in one-on-one meetings, networking and will do a presentation to financial professionals, industry leaders, investors and executives. "We are honored to have been invited to participate in this event, it will give us the opportunity to share the Marapharm story alongside other keynote speakers in this sector," Linda Sampson CEO.
All ground preparation and construction grading is complete at the site. We have altered the plans to accommodate our advanced vertical growing technology and as a result we have experienced some permitting delays. All permits are now ready to go, and construction will be expedited.
In the interim the Company has brought two modular buildings onsite which will be modified to meet Nevada State requirements for cultivation and processing. Upon Nevada State approval, the Company will be positioned to apply for recreational licensing, within the time frame of the new schedule as brought forward by the State of Nevada (July 2017). "We would like to thank the mayor of North Las Vegas, John Lee, and Nevada state officials for their assistance in helping us move our project forward. We invite shareholders to visit the construction site when in Las Vegas." Linda Sampson CEO.
