Ross' Gold™ CEO Ross Rebagliati to Join Special Panel on Medical Marijuana at the 42nd RCBC Conference & Trade Show in Whistler, BC

Cannabis Legalization Will Bring Additional Organic Waste -- What Are the Solutions

WHISTLER, BC--(Marketwired - May 18, 2016) - Ross' Gold™, a division of Green and Hill Industries Inc. (OTC PINK: GHIL) (the "Company"), today announced that its CEO Ross Rebagliati will be joining a special panel on medical marijuana at the RCBC Conference & Trade Show in Whistler, BC on March 19th.

The RCBC announced the following online:

If you were tuned into the TV news last week you might have caught a story featuring London Drugs and Shoppers Drug Mart talking about participating in the medicinal marijuana business. The issue certainly created a buzz around water coolers the next day. As you may be aware, the Trudeau government had the legalization of marijuana as a high profile plank in their election platform. The potential economics for marijuana (medicinal or otherwise) is in the billions. It's not a token amount. We're talking employment, tax revenues, and system wide economic spin offs at every level. But, as any change that affects a system there will be both intended and unintended consequences.

One of those consequences could also mean tonnes of organic waste. To be blunt, the last thing we want is to do is add to an already chronic problem. To look for answers, we went to the grassroots of the medical marijuana industry; Olympic snowboarding gold medalist Ross Rebagliati. Believe me, he's not just blowing smoke. Ross' Gold medical marijuana, and associated products, are sold in more than 100 outlets across Canada and proves he's got a head for the business.

Now, for an issue such is this, you really need to get into the weeds. RCBC is putting together a joint panel on the issue for our conference. In Whistler on May 19 Ross will help us hash things out over lunch as we try to spark discussion. Who knows, we may find out that an ounce of prevention is a heck of lot cheaper than a pound of cure. 

Ross Rebagliati commented, "When Health Canada recommended blending marijuana with water and mixing it with cat litter before tossing it into regular household trash, I was taken aback. A main component of Kitty Litter is Silica Gel, which has the potential to harm humans, animals and the environment. Then I found out that Colorado regulations stipulate it's okay to grind up organic waste with plastics before disposing into landfills. Plastic. Is this what we want?"

Mr. Rebagliati continued, "Our Company is committed to the environment. In fact, our Ross' Gold glass line uses shipping peanuts made from corn starch, which are 100 percent biodegradable. With legalization of cannabis around the corner, we are going to a lot more waste hitting the system. Some growers we know are adopting eco-friendly composting and this panel will explore new opportunities for the industry. Looking forward to seeing you there."
