LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 29, 2014) - Agritek Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: AGTK) (www.Agritekholdings.com), a leader in Compassionate Care Technology, today announced that the Company has executed an exclusive celebrity marketing agreement and contract with Tara Reid, star of the hit Movies Sharknado, American Pie and others on behalf of the new Mont Blunt E-cigs brand (www.MontBlunt.com).

Tara Reid has acted on television shows such as Saved by the Bell: The New Class, Days of Our Lives, California Dreams, and Scrubs.

Her film debut came in A Return to Salem's Lot, followed by The Big Lebowski, Urban Legend, and American Pie. She has since portrayed supporting as well as lead roles in several films, including Dr. T & the Women, Josie and the Pussycats, American Pie 2, Van Wilder, My Boss's Daughter, Alone in the Dark, American Reunion and Sharknado (2013).

After moving to Hollywood in 1997, Reid transitioned to movies, landing her breakout role in 1998's The Big Lebowski. which has gone on to become a cult favorite. Later that same year she appeared in Cruel Intentions and Urban Legend, each of which grossed just under $40 million in the US and led to two sequels. Reid found her first taste of real mainstream success when she portrayed the role of the virginal Vickie in American Pie (1999), which grossed over $100 million in US. The film also marked her first film to reach #1 at the box office. In 2001, she reprised the role in American Pie 2, which opened to $45 million and grossed over $145 million in the US, almost 50% more than its predecessor.

Following the success of American Pie 2, Reid starred in a number of commercial and critical misfires including Josie and the Pussycats and Van Wilder. She also starred as the youngest daughter in Robert Altman's Dr. T and the Women, alongside Richard Gere. She returned to the small screen as a recurring character on the NBC sitcom, Scrubs, appearing in 11 episodes of Season 3.

The Movie Sharknado starring Tara was the surprise hit of 2013. Because of the social media buzz, the original campy horror film delivered a record 2.1 million total viewers on it's third airing, which made it the most-watched encore for an original movie in Syfy history.

"We are extremely pleased to work closely with part of Tara Reid's management team and have her be our exclusive celebrity representative for the new Mont Blunt E-cig line. Tara has publically admitted to being tobacco smoker for years, and we believe the Mont Blunt brand as the premium line is a perfect fit for Tara. We are excited that her over 200,000 Twitter followers, celebrity appearances, magazine and television events and our new ad campaigns including www.TaraReid.com, will heighten the visibility and awareness of the Mont Blunt brand," stated B. Michael Friedman, CEO of Agritek Holdings Inc.

Tara stated, "I'm so excited to join the prestigious Mont Blunt group and their brand. This comes at a time when I am making lifestyle changes that are better for me and I encourage all cigarette smokers to do the same, smoke free and live rich."

In a recent study reported by BBC news, smokers who use e-cigarettes to quit are more likely to succeed than those who use willpower alone or buy nicotine replacement therapies, such as patches or gum, a study suggests. The survey of nearly 6,000 smokers found a fifth had quit with the aid of e-cigarettes. That was 60% higher than those who did not use the devices, the study said.

E-cigarette use has shot up in recent years. Action on Smoking and Health estimate there are more than 2m people using them -- triple the number from two years ago. Users experience the sensation of smoking by inhaling a vapor which contains a concentration of nicotine.

Lead researcher Prof Robert West, one of the UK's leading experts in this field, said: "E-cigarettes could substantially improve public health because of their widespread appeal and the huge health gains associated with stopping smoking." A Department of Health spokeswoman said: "E-cigarettes are not risk free, but they carry a lower risk to health than smoking tobacco and may help people who want to stop smoking."
