PORT ST. LUCIE, FL--(Marketwired - May 28, 2014) - Water Technologies International, Inc. (OTC Pink: WTII) (PINKSHEETS: WTII), a leader in the technological process of atmospheric water production and design, previously announced it has decided to expand the product line to include specialized and licensed medical marijuana business operators in the United States through its subsidiary GR8 Water, Inc. The recent NBC News article: "U.S. Says Legal Marijuana Growers Can't Use Federal Irrigation Water" (http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/u-s-says-legal-marijuana-growers-cant-use-federal-irrigation-n110381) further reiterates the necessity for GR8 Water's custom agricultural products. With the onset of summer months and the agricultural season, perfect temperatures and humidity are allowing for the implementation of this emerging technology to ensure productive crop yields of medical and recreational marijuana.
Given the recent expansion and acceptance of the medical marijuana industry now within 20 states, high demand has been created for clean water and customized cooling and humidity controls specifically designed to meet the needs of large scale grow operations and green houses. GR8 Water's custom units will be able to not only generate water, but will clean, dehumidify, cool and heat the air in the cultivation areas. GR8 Water is in the final stages of development involving several innovative agricultural products and expects to announce soon their availability to the industry.
Water Technologies International, Inc.'s CEO, William Scott Tudor, commented, "We continue to offer custom products for fast growing and emerging industries. The medical and recreational marijuana movement is a booming industry. We believe that our proprietary Atmospheric Water Generators, along with new custom products that control humidity and air flow, provide a quality solution for indoor and outdoor agriculture. The growing demand for clean water has created significant revenue opportunities for our company, and in time, will create real value for our shareholders."
The medical marijuana industry has grown to include nearly half of the United States and is now legal for recreational use in Colorado; Washington is soon to follow in suit. One of the benefits experienced in Colorado stems from the taxation of the sale of marijuana generating millions in revenue on a monthly basis. The cannabis industry is already waiting on federal reforms involving banking and the sale of infused products which makes this temporary irrigation problem just another item on the list. Medicinal and recreational use of marijuana is certain to increase in demand as stigmas are removed and the regulatory institutions smooth out the process. Real estate in specially zoned areas and all the ancillary business related to the production and sale of cannabis stands to flourish for years to come.
