"Of all the industries to be associated with over the next 20 years, I would choose Renewable Energy, Medical Marijuana, and News & Entertainment. The Company's renewable energy division is the new and groundbreaking ELAS process to recycle asphalt shingles. Global Medical Marijuana Forum, Inc. (GMMF), wholly owned subsidiary of Freedom will house all of the involvement into this industry. With the acquisition of LaunchTV, the company is now positioned to take advantage of what I consider to be the 3 greatest future growth industries. While we wait for regulatory approval for ELAS, Freedom is not subject to the 'failure to Launch.'

"It is a privilege that Maureen decided to join forces with me as we build Freedom into the diversified holding company I envisioned. While separate industries, ELAS, GMMF and Launch TV each has the potential of creating a great deal of shareholder value. Each in its infancy stages, however each being led by experienced and very qualified individuals," stated Kistler.

"I am looking forward to further unfolding the overall plan for Freedom as things continue to progress. With Launch TV the Company will now have the ability, in house, to reach the masses with information regarding the plans and accomplishments. Specifically, as the Medical Marijuana Industry continues to mature, Launch TV will have an established programming genre to serve the Cannabis related markets when other platforms either cannot or will not. As I surround myself with quality individuals like Maureen and John, I am confident that with the recent activities, the success for Freedom is as sure a bet as one can make," concluded Kistler.
