VANCOUVER, BC - February 7, 2014 - Enertopia Corporation (ENRT-OTCBB) (TOP-CSE) (the "Company" or "Enertopia") announces that the Company has signed a Letter Of Intent (LOI) with a private company currently producing, cultivating and selling Medical Marihuana in Canada under the current Health Canada Medical Marihuana Access Program (MMAP).
There is approximately 6,000 square feet in use/production currently and the existing building has multiple rooms for ultimate expansion to 55,000 square feet of production space. This LOI is separate from any other pre-existing joint ventures that Enertopia has in the Medical Marihuana sector. The physical location of the facility is in a different province than the pre-existing joint venture which is located in British Columbia.
"Enertopia is capitalizing on the consolidation opportunity from the current system: where small independent operators will be challenged to comply with the stricter new legislative requirements, while larger entities operating only the most trusted and secure systems have the ability to thrive," stated President / CEO Robert McAllister. "Enertopia is pleased with its existing joint venture and expects positive developments with its Health Canada licence application, and plans to expand strategically as opportunities present themselves."
Enertopia paid $100,000 on signing the LOI and could issue an additional 19,000,000 shares and $900,000 dollars to earn up to a 75% interest in the private operation over 3 years, upon signing the Definitive Agreement. The signing of the Definitive Agreement is expected to coincide with the closing of our final tranche on or before February 21, 2014. Upgrades to the existing facility are currently underway.
"It is Enertopia's business model to operate in locations where it can attain the status of low cost producer while at the same time being respected as producing the highest quality of medical grade marihuana." Stated President / CEO Robert McAllister.
Enertopia's shares are quoted in Canada with symbol TOP in the United States with symbol ENRT. For additional information, please visit www.enertopia.com or call Dale Paruk, President, Coal Harbor Communications Ltd. at 1.604.662.4505
