TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Nov 28, 2016) - Easton Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC PINK: EAPH) announces it has entered into negotiation for the purpose of filing an application in Jamaica for the purpose of growing and exporting medical concentrated Marijuana into various countries including Canada, Mexico, and Brazil.
Easton Pharmaceuticals has previously demonstrated its strong desire and commitment to enter the lucrative market of medical marijuana. To further demonstrate its commitment, Easton can now confirm and disclose it has been in negotiations with several advanced staged license applicants in both Canada and now Jamaica. The countries of Mexico and Brazil currently allow the importation of Marijuana, while Canada is expected to federally approve Marijuana for recreational use in the spring of 2017. Many other states in the United States have also recently passed legislation approving it.
Marijuana can easily be grown outdoors in Jamaica's moderate climate, which substantially reduces the various costs, providing increased margins and profitability as opposed to Canada where it is grown indoors with many stringent regulations and up front infrastructure costs necessary for production. Easton believes it can export concentrated medicinal marijuana through its distribution network in Mexico and other parts of Latin America where the importation of medical marijuana is legal. The company further believes it can be one of the first to supply medicinal concentrated marijuana to licensed producers in Canada.
The fast growing and increasingly accepted Medical Marijuana industry is believed to be a good compliment to Easton's other existing business sectors which includes its licensed patented woman's diagnostic products (VagiSan (VS-Sense), AmnioSense (AL-Sense), Gynofit) and its two generic cancer drugs (Pacletaxel & Docetaxel) licensed through BioLyse Pharma.
