SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Sept. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Spirit Industries Inc. (OTC Pink:GSRX) (“Green Spirit” or, the “Company”) through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Project 1493, LLC, announced today that construction on three of its planned medical cannabis dispensary locations in Puerto Rico remains on track following Hurricane Irma. All three are expected to open in the fourth quarter as originally projected.
“We are grateful that this island and its people were spared the worst of Irma, and our prayers are with other members of our Caribbean island family who suffered tragic loss of life and monumental destruction,” said Les Ball, CEO of Green Spirit. “We remain united with our neighbors here, and are committed to bringing our products and services to those patients in Puerto Rico who are awaiting the opening of our dispensaries, as quickly as possible. Our proposed locations are undamaged, and construction has resumed.”
As previously announced, Green Spirit has begun construction on three of its five planned medical cannabis dispensaries in Puerto Rico (Construction Begins in Dorado) (Construction Begins in Carolina) (Construction Begins in San Juan), and plans are underway to begin construction on a fourth dispensary in Isla Verde, as well as a fifth in Fajardo, in the coming weeks (Lease and Application for Isla Verde Dispensary). Once construction at each location is completed and passes inspection by the Department of Health of Puerto Rico, the requisite operating permit is issued.
“We encourage anyone who is able to lend assistance to the people of those Carribean islands that were hit the hardest to do so. News reports are showing how Puerto Rico is welcoming evacuees from neighboring St. Thomas and St. Marteen, while private citizens here have been taking much-needed supplies by personal watercraft from Fajardo to St. Thomas, and returning with boatloads of evacuees. And Richard Branson, whose own Necker Island was left in shambles, is mobilizing to help with relief on neighboring Carribean islands. Together, we will all rebuild and recover from Irma, and will emerge stronger than ever.”
