TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Apr 20, 2015) - Easton Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC PINK: EAPH) announces it has signed a letter of intent with Colorado Product Services, LLC and Cultiv8, LLC regarding the purchase of a recreational marijuana dispensary, a 10,000 square foot cultivation facility and lab, located in Carbondale, Colorado.

Easton Pharmaceuticals has demonstrated its intent to enter the marijuana industry in the United States and Canada, starting with its agreement with Medicated Markets, LLC within the State of California. Easton has now executed a signed agreement to engage in the Marijuana industry within the State of Colorado. The letter was signed with Joseph Tremolada of Cultiv8, LLC whereby Easton will enter into an agreement to lend funds for the purchase of a state-licensed recreational marijuana dispensary, "Doctors Garden," from Colorado Product Services, LLC. The licenses will be transferred to Cultiv8, LLC upon approval of the final closing agreement. Doctors Garden reported $1,143,103 in annuals sales to the Department of Revenue (DOR) for the year ending December 31, 2014.

Joseph, the owner of Cultiv8, LLC, received his Bachelor of Science in Business with a concentration in Finance from Sonoma State University. Joseph is a business professional experienced in marijuana production, leasing, property management, financial planning and market analysis. He began his career growing for collectives in Northern California, and moved to Colorado where he managed 15,000 sq. ft. of state-licensed cultivation for nearly 2-years. Joseph is currently a consultant for marijuana businesses and a fundraiser at Americans for Forfeiture Reform. Joseph met the two-year state residency requirement to apply for ownership with the state licensing authority last year.

Doctors Garden was the first dispensary approved to sell recreational marijuana in the Roaring Fork Valley on January 15, 2014. The purchase is a strategic acquisition of a marijuana dispensary in a beautiful mountain town off the only major highway providing winter access to Aspen, a popular ski resort and tourist destination.

Upon execution of a final closing agreement, Easton intends to purchase a cultivation facility and lab that would supply the dispensary and wholesale market with marijuana and Easton's infused product formulations within the State of Colorado. Easton would profit by lending money, leasing real property and assigning intellectual property. The final closing agreement is subject to approval by state and local licensing authorities, but its framework will be based on agreements that have been approved. Additional details and updates to be disclosed as they become available.

Prior to the legalization of recreational marijuana, the Department of Revenue (DOR) reported $386 million in medical marijuana sales for the year-ending December 31, 2013.
