Mayor Pauline Cutter to speak at ribbon cutting ceremony
IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terra Tech Corp. (TRTC) ("Terra Tech") or (the "Company"), a vertically integrated cannabis-focused agriculture company, today announced that Mayor Pauline Cutter of San Leandro, CA will speak at Terra Tech’s grand opening of its Blüm San Leandro medical cannabis dispensary. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on January 11th, 2019 at the dispensary located at 1915 Fairway Drive San Leandro, CA, 94577.
Terra Tech’s Blum San Leandro dispensary will make history as the first medical dispensary to open its doors in San Leandro, a prominent suburb city of San Francisco and Oakland, centered in the dynamic San Francisco Bay Area. With a vibrant community of more than 89,000 residents, San Leandro is known for its well-maintained neighborhoods, excellent public libraries, twenty-one public parks, quality local schools, and a wide range of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. The City also encompasses a large industrial area that is home to an advanced manufacturing industry. The Company is also constructing an extraction facility in San Leandro, which it expects to open in early 2019.
Chief Executive Officer, Derek Peterson, said, “San Leandro will be a great location for Terra Tech’s new medical cannabis dispensary as the city has proven to be an expanding hub of innovation and business. Having a dispensary up and running in San Leandro is the perfect way to start off 2019 by increasing Terra Tech’s distribution channels in such a sought-after location. I will be speaking alongside Mayor Cutter at the event where I will touch upon the significance of this location and how it will help accelerate the growth of our company.”
Mayor Cutter will follow Derek’s opening speech with her remarks and will be accompanied by City Manager Jeff Kay, members of the City Council and other City Officials. Additionally, Terra Tech will be inviting local manufacturers and cultivators to attend the event.
The grand opening of Terra Tech’s Blum San Leandro medical cannabis dispensary is the result of a six-year process where the City Council ended up allowing only three dispensaries to be opened in San Leandro. Terra Tech’s Blüm San Leandro location received a permit in 2015 and was subsequently issued a manufacturing permit in 2017.
