STATEMENT REGARDING UNITED STATES REGULATORY FRAMEWORK FOR CANNABIS
Pursuant to Pure Extracts’ joint venture with Golden Harvests, LLC, Pure Extracts expects to derive revenues from the cannabis industry in the State of Michigan in the United States, which industry is illegal under United States federal law. The joint venture is expected to be directly or indirectly engaged in the manufacture, possession, use, sale and distribution of cannabis in the medical and/or adult-use cannabis marketplace in the State of Michigan.
The United States federal government regulates drugs through the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. § 811) (the “CSA”), which places controlled substances, including cannabis, in a schedule. Cannabis is classified as a Schedule I drug. Under United States federal law, a Schedule I drug or substance has a high potential for abuse, no accepted medical use in the United States, and a lack of accepted safety for the use of the drug under medical supervision. The United States Food and Drug Administration has not approved cannabis as a safe and effective drug for any indication.
In the United States, cannabis is largely regulated at the state level. State laws regulating cannabis are in direct conflict with the federal Controlled Substances Act, which makes cannabis use and possession federally illegal. Although certain states authorize medical and/or adult-use cannabis production and distribution by licensed or registered entities, under United States federal law, the possession, use, cultivation, and transfer of cannabis and any cannabis-related drug paraphernalia is illegal and any such acts are criminal acts under federal law. The Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution establishes that the United States Constitution and federal laws made pursuant to it are paramount and in case of conflict between federal and state law, the federal law shall apply.
There is no guarantee that state laws legalizing and regulating the sale and use of cannabis will not be repealed or overturned, or that local governmental authorities will not limit the applicability of state laws within their respective jurisdictions. Unless and until the United States Congress amends the CSA with respect to medical and/or adult-use cannabis (and as to the timing or scope of any such potential amendments there can be no assurance), there is a risk that U.S. federal authorities may enforce current U.S. federal law. If the U.S. federal government begins to enforce U.S. federal laws relating to cannabis in states where the sale and use of cannabis is currently legal, or if existing applicable state laws are repealed or curtailed, Pure Extracts’ business, results of operations, financial condition and prospects would be materially adversely affected. For these reasons, Pure Extracts’ operations in the United States cannabis market (through the joint venture) may subject Pure Extracts to heightened scrutiny by regulators, stock exchanges, clearing agencies and other Canadian and U.S. authorities and is subject to a number of risks, including those risks that are described in the Companies’ public filings profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com .
To Pure Extract’s knowledge, no statement has been made by federal authorities or prosecutors regarding the risk of enforcement action with respect to state-sanctioned marijuana activities in the state of Michigan.
No stock exchange, securities commission or other regulatory authority has approved or disapproved the information contained herein
