This week, the company announced a letter of intent to purchase a 50% stake in Canadian firm that has applied for a MMPR license. International Herbs Medical Marijuana Ltd. was founded by the owners of Western Canada’s largest fresh herb grower, importer, distributor and a leading specialty herb producer in North American, providing significant expertise in a highly related industry.
Investors may want to take a closer look at Medican Enterprises given these recent developments. Successful acquisition of an MMPR license could yield significant revenue over the coming quarters as the program gears up for an April 1st launch.
