October 29, 2014, Vancouver, BC – Supreme Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Supreme” or the “Company“) (“SL” – CSE) today announced that it has been advised by one of its partners, the operator of a producing medical marijuana facility in the South Okanagan, that Health Canada has rejected the current site of the facility for licensing under the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulation (“MMPR”) as a result of its proximity to a small number of residential buildings. The Company, in consultation with its partner and advisors, remains of the view that the site meets the criteria set forth by Health Canada with respect to acceptable locations and zoning, and is investigating its options.
“Although this represents a short-term setback for Supreme in British Columbia, as acknowledged in our September news release the Company remains focused on the development of our flagship project in Kincardine, Ontario”, stated Supreme CEO, David Stadnyk, “construction of the Kincardine facility is progressing as expected and the Company anticipates a pre-license inspection by Health Canada in November 2014.”
Supreme acquired an option to purchase the business associated with the South Okanagan Facility in April 2014, in consideration for $150,000 in cash and $100,000 in common shares of the Company at a deemed price of $0.05 per share. The option is exercisable until April, 2015.
