DENVER, Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Just weeks after forming their new business venture, Medicine Man Technologies; Andy Williams, President of Medicine Man Denver and Brett Roper, Chief Operating Officer of ChineseInvestors.COM (OTCQB Symbol 'CIIX') are pleased to announce their first licensee client, McGraw Holdings, LLC of Illinois.
After extensive deliberation and consultation, McGraw Holdings, LLC, has chosen Medicine Man Technologies as its key service provider in bringing their extensive industry expertise and innovative business practices to the State of Illinois. Expectations are that this new partnership will provide Illinois medical marijuana patients with the highest quality cannabis based products the market will have to offer. The newly formed company will be submitting applications to allow construction of two technologically advanced marijuana grow operations, to be located in Illinois State Police Districts 5 and 21 in anticipation of fulfilling the supply needs of any of the potential 60 Illinois based dispensaries as proposed.
Mr. Tim McGraw, owner of McGraw Holdings and managing partner of this new enterprise noted, "After touring dozens of facilities and interviewing their respective management teams, Medicine Man Technologies was our clear choice. Mr. Andy Williams, his team, his experience, and extraordinary facilities are second to none in the industry. In our opinion, we could not be more excited about building our new enterprise using his wealth of experience and success in Colorado to provide a steady supply of the highest quality medicine to patients in Illinois."
Mr. Andy Williams, Medicine Man's President and General Director of Medicine Man Technologies commented, "We are excited by this first of many opportunities to deliver our experience and highly evolved, variable capacity, continuous harvest process to this explosive growth-oriented space nationally. We were also impressed with Tim's general business experience and the quality of his partners in this new business. His construction as well as project management background add excellent value underpinnings as well."
Medicine Man Denver is in the process of substantially expanding their current facilities and was one of the first businesses in Colorado to be granted a recreational use license by the City and County of Denver and the State of Colorado. Their substantial investment in both their business and community creates both an expanded tax base as well as a growing source of employment.
