Nhale (NHLE) Inks LOI With Oregon Marijuana Grower as Recreational Marijuana Legislation Passes

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2014) -  Coming on the heels of the successful passage of Measure 91, which legalizes recreational marijuana for people ages 21 and older, Nhale Inc. (OTCQB: NHLE) is pleased to announce it has entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) with a private Oregon-based company that has marijuana production capabilities, with the intent of growing legal cannabis. The company under consideration intends to apply for a permit from the state to begin operations on approximately 20 acres of land in western Oregon. This venture is in accordance with Nhale's mission to acquire companies with proven business models in the legal cannabis industry.

The Oregon Legalized Marijuana Initiative, Measure 91, passed yesterday in that state, allowing adults over 21 years old to possess up to eight ounces of "dried" marijuana and up to four plants.

"We congratulate the citizens of Oregon who have worked hard to bring about this legislation and we are excited about the opportunity to consider developing our business in this great state," said Lance Williams, President and CEO of Nhale Inc. "We feel optimistic about collaborating with the talented team under consideration and feel they will be complementary to our goals for future growth."

CBS News reports approximately 14.5 percent of Oregon's population uses marijuana, compared to about 10.8 percent of Americans, boasting one of the highest rates of marijuana use in the U.S. Oregon also has one of the oldest medical marijuana programs in the US, established in 1998, just two years after the first was created in California. State economists conservatively estimate Oregon will gain between $17.5 and $25.9 million in tax revenues in the first years of legalization. 20% of the consumption is expected to be from tourists.
