DENVER, CO, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 11/12/2014 – – Latteno Food Corp. (OTC Pink: LATF) (PINKSHEETS: LATF), is pleased to announce its initiatives that will capitalize on the emerging medicinal and recreational cannabis market that is reported to see exponential growth over the next number of years. These growth projections firmly validate the Company’s previously announced growth initiatives, as well as provide excellent growth opportunities for all its MMJ revenue streams
According to ArcView Group, the legal U.S. cannabis industry was $1.5 billion in 2013 and is forecast to reach $2.6 billion by the end of 2014 and $10.2 billion by 2018. In the two states that approved marijuana for recreational use, Colorado’s and Washington’s 2014 market is projected to be $800 million and $300 million, respectively.
There are currently 23 states and the District of Columbia that have legalized marijuana for medicinal applications. Among these, Colorado and Washington have legalized it for recreational use. With three recent major victories, Latteno is pleased the following states have voted to approve recreational use:
Washington D.C. – Voters overwhelmingly approved Measure 71 by a vote of 69.4 percent yes to 30.6 percent no; the highest margin for any marijuana legalization ballot measure ever.
Oregon – Measure 91 currently stands at 54.7 percent yes to 45.3 percent no. A massive swing from just two years ago when a poorly crafted legalization initiative failed 46.6-53.4.
Alaska – With most of the vote counted, Measure 2 has 52.1 percent yes to 47.9 percent no. This is the first victory for marijuana legalization in a Republican state.
For the near term, Latteno will continue expanding its edible products line as well as seeking to become a license and/or acquire stakes in businesses that focus on edibles and other healthcare/wellness products to supplement our top selling LT-512 sex enhancement pills. Recently, Latteno introduced five new edible products to our CannaBeeSweets line and lined up potential MMJ candidates for immediate term acquisitions.
Additionally, Latteno plans to establish local sales/marketing offices in recently-approved recreational states of Alaska, Oregon and Washington DC; and forge alliances/partnerships or acquire local dispensaries in all 4 recreational states to market its own CannaBeeSweets line along with future edible products.
In order to further explore and source new products and establish valuable industry contacts, Latteno has sent representatives to 3rd Annual Marijuana Business Conference & Expo in Las Vegas this week. Produced by Marijuana Business Daily, the industry’s most trusted professional news source, the conference will host 2,000 industry pros and major investors from more than 30 US states and 10 countries.
The Company looks forward to continued growth in the expanding legal cannabis market.
