Easton Pharmaceuticals Provides Update on Its Medicated Markets Partnership, Joint Initiatives and the Booming Medical Marijuana Climate in California for January 2015

HUMBOLDT, CA and TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Feb 9, 2015) - Easton Pharmaceuticals Inc (OTC PINK: EAPH) Provides Medicated Markets partnership update, discloses joint initiatives and provides comments and opinions on the booming medical marijuana climate in California in January 2015

Easton announced its intention and formally entered the lucrative medical marijuana industry in the United States through its 40% ownership purchase of Medicated Markets International LLC, a major Medical Marijuana grower in the state of California. Medicated Markets International's main business directive is the cultivation of marijuana for wholesale, in the state of California and other Legalized states. 100% of its current sales volume is sold in the State of California. As such wholesale price movements in Medical Marijuana rates in California directly impact Medicated Market's bottom line.

In January wholesale prices in California for prices paid by current dispensaries serviced have risen an average of 15% depending on the strain. The average wholesale price sold by Medicated Markets in December 2014 was USD$1925 per pound while January 2015 prices averaged USD$2185 per pound. The rise in price is partly due to seasonal demand as well as the current robust nature of demand in California.

Medicated Markets maintains current operations in multiple counties in California, including Riverside County and Humboldt County (20 acres), with additional property to be slated in Mendocino County in the range of approximately 30 acre's (outdoor greenhouse). This property should be in escrow by late February and close by March, an update on that specific detail will be provided once the property is in escrow. The reason Medicated Markets has diversified into multiple counties has been to remove dependence on any one counties restrictions on water use, as well as to guard against any single counties potential future ordinance changes. Two Master Growers for Medicated Markets LLC and their verifiable license numbers and addresses locations are stated below.
