Enertopia Provides Canadian Medical Marihuana Update
VANCOUVER, BC – Enertopia Corporation (ENRT-OTCBB) (TOP-CSE) (the "Company" or "Enertopia") announces updates with respect to the Burlington and The Green Canvas Joint Ventures.
Enertopia has signed a binding LOI to sell its wholly owned sub Thor Pharma Corp along with the MMPR application number 10MMPR0610. The Burlington MMPR license application will continue in the application process under new ownership. The Joint Venture could receive up to $1,500,000 in milestone payments upon the Burlington facility becoming licensed under the MMPR program. These monies would be split approximately 50% with Lexaria Corp. Subsequent with this deal the Burlington Joint Venture between Enertopia and Lexaria which was entered into on May 27, 2014 has been terminated due to the pending sale of the project. The Enertopia and Lexaria Master Joint Venture Agreement entered into on March 5, 2014 is still in good standing as both companies continue to look at synergistic opportunities to increase shareholder value.
After thorough examination of the Medical Marihuana industry in Canada and current participants within the sector, it is apparent that raising capital to push projects forward is not currently in the best interests of the Company. Therefore, the Company and The Green Canvas have mutually agreed to terminate their Joint Venture and 6,400,000 shares of Enertopia held in escrow with respect to The Green Canvas Joint Venture will be returned back to corporate treasury and cancelled.
Enertopia is and will continue to be an advocate for medical cannabis for patients and applauds the landmark Supreme Court of Canada ruling on June 11, 2015. This ruling upheld the rights of legal MMAR and MMPR medical cannabis patients in Canada. The unanimous ruling allows valid legal medical patients to choose how they want to administer medical cannabis by the method that is best suited to their medical condition and body absorption. This looks to be a very positive development for the Canadian medical marihuana sector going forward, as the Federal Government will have to modify or implement a program for the administration of other forms of medical cannabis consumption.
Enertopia will continue to look for opportunities in the MMJ and other sectors that offer the best return for all stakeholders with the least amount of dilution to the Company. The Company looks forward to utilizing its learned knowledge in the MMJ sector and will continue on its path of becoming a licensed producer.
“The Company has completed two milestones in building a stable foundation with its ownership of 1,000,000 shares in Lexaria Corp which has just filed PCT for patent pending bio technologies and the potential of approximately $750,000 in future payments from the Burlington application,” Stated President Robert McAllister
