MediJean Distribution Inc. Issues Media Correction

RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 8, 2014) - MediJean Distribution Inc. ("MediJean") is an applicant for licensed producer status under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations.

MediJean has become aware of certain comments allegedly made by its former CEO and shareholder Jean Chiasson last week via Mr. Chiasson's Twitter account and statements that were subsequently made by others in reporting on that Twitter feed, in particular in a Huffington Post article by Dana Larsen on September 5, 2014. MediJean wishes to disavow the comments contained in Mr. Chiasson's Twitter feed regarding the named individuals and to correct factual errors in the Huffington Post article.

In particular, MediJean wishes to confirm that in March of 2014, Mr. Chiasson resigned as a director and CEO of MediJean, after which time he ceased to have any involvement in the day to day operations of MediJean. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Chiasson ceased to be a shareholder of MediJean. Accordingly, and contrary to statements made in the Huffington Post, Mr. Chiasson has not been the CEO of MediJean nor an employee or representative of the company for some time. Furthermore, it wishes to reiterate that the views of Mr. Chiasson do not represent those of MediJean and he has no authority to speak on its behalf. The statements made on Mr. Chiasson's Twitter feed do not represent the views of MediJean or its directors, officers or employees, and MediJean does not endorse or adopt the statements made regarding any named individual.
