OCTOBER 27, 2016
TORONTO, ONTARIO — (Marketwired) — 10/27/16 —
Supreme Pharmaceuticals Inc. (the “Company” or “Supreme”) (CSE:SL)(CSE:SL.CN)(OTC PINK:SPRWF) wishes to clarify that, as a result of changes Health Canada made to its website today, Supreme’s operating subsidiary, AMMCan, was mistakenly shown as having been approved for the sale of dried marihuana. Supreme notified IIROC upon learning of this inadvertent change to Health Canada’s website, and the common shares were halted from trading. The Health Canada website has since been corrected. Supreme wishes to clarify that, at this time, AMMCan has not yet been approved by Health Canada to sell dried marihuana but continues to take steps towards gaining such approval. Today’s events have no impact on AMMCan’s status as a Licensed Producer and are unrelated to AMMCan’s progress towards obtaining the sales approval. Further updates relating to the status of AMMCan’s licensing will be provided as they become available. Supreme’s common shares are expected to resume trading following shortly dissemination of this news release.
