DENVER, CO, Jan. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- American Cannabis Company, Inc. (OTCQB: AMMJ) (“ACC” or “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has successfully executed a non-binding letter of intent (LOI) with Andina Gold Corporation (OTCQB: AGOL) to purchase assets of its Good Meds and BOSM Labs operating division, a fully licensed cultivation and extraction operation in Colorado offering premium cannabis and cannabis extracts to the wholesale and retail medical and recreational markets. Assets are to include one cultivation operation and one hydrocarbon extraction laboratory and production center. All assets to be acquired will operate out of a 60,000-square-foot facility, centrally located in Denver, Colorado. Currently, only 50,000 square feet of space are being utilized, with 10,000 square feet of additional open space ready and available for the Company to use as it looks to scale up operations.
Since 2009, the Good Meds brand has cultivated and provided top-tier cannabis flower products to medical patients and recreational consumers in Colorado. BOSM Labs carries a strong reputation as a high-end manufacturer of well-known hydrocarbon-extracted cannabis products. Combined under one roof, these brands act as one of few long-standing and major contenders in the maturing Denver market.
Christopher Hansen, Chief Executive Officer of Andina Gold Corporation, commented: “We are pleased with the non-binding letter of intent with American Cannabis Company, and look forward to working with Terry Buffalo and his team to complete the transaction. The dedicated, consistently excellent work of Good Meds and BOSM Labs personnel has been the driver of their excellent reputation. We also appreciate the steady leadership through this transitional period provided by Amanda Price and John Haugh. We feel confident the impressive work of Good Meds and BOSM Labs will continue as we hand over the keys to American Cannabis Company.”
Terry Buffalo, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of American Cannabis Company, commented, “This is another strategic move for ACC. Officially having secured two non-binding LOIs to date, ACC will soon integrate three retail dispensaries and a total of 70,000 square feet of combined cultivation and extraction operations. The due diligence process for Good Meds and BOSM Labs has begun, and we anticipate this to close in Q2 of 2021. We analyzed many opportunities both here in Colorado as well as in other states, and we ultimately chose to focus on the Colorado market initially. This approach will allow us to improve existing operational processes, refine our workflow and deploy an operational management platform that we can use as we branch out to other regions of the country.”

Cannabis Remains an Illegal Schedule 1 Drug Under Federal Law
Cannabis and its derivatives are considered illegal “Schedule 1” drugs under the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. § 811). As such, Cannabis and its derivatives are viewed as being highly addictive and having no medical value. The United States Drug Enforcement Agency enforces the Controlled Substances Act, and persons violating it are subject to federal criminal prosecution. The criminal penalty structure in the Controlled Substances Act is determined based on the specific predicate violations, including but not limited to: simple possession, drug trafficking, attempt and conspiracy, distribution to minors, trafficking in drug paraphernalia, money laundering, racketeering, environmental damage from illegal manufacturing, continuing criminal enterprise, and smuggling. A first conviction under the Controlled Substances Act can generally result in possible fines from $250,000 to $50 million dollars, and incarceration for periods generally from five and up to forty years. For a second conviction, fines increase generally from $500,000 to $75 million dollars, and incarceration for periods generally from ten years to twenty years to life.
