NEW YORK, April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

FinancialBuzz.com News Commentary 

A new report from a business

intelligence firm, New Frontier Data, projects the creation of more than a quarter of a million jobs related to cannabis growing and sales for American workers across the U.S. by 2020. According to the report, the legal cannabis market was worth an estimated
$7.2 billion in 2016 and is projected to grow at a compound annual rate of 17%. Medical cannabis sales alone are projected to grow from $4.7 billion in 2016 to $13.3 billion in 2020. Adult recreational sales are estimated to jump from $2.6 billion in 2016 to $11.2 billion by 2020. Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC: MCOA), Greengro Technologies (OTC: GRNH), Terra Tech Corporation (OTC: TRTC), CV Sciences Inc. (OTC: CVSI), MCig Inc. (OTC: MCIG).

"These numbers confirm that cannabis is a major economic driver and job-creation engine for the U.S. economy," said Giadha Aguirre De Carcer, Founder and CEO of New Frontier Data. "While we see a potential drop in total number of U.S. jobs created in 2017, as reported by Kiplinger, as well as an overall expected drop in GDP growth, the cannabis industry continues to be a positive contributing factor to growth at a time of potential decline. We expect the cannabis industry's growth to be slowed down to some degree in the next three to five years, however with projected total market sales to exceed $24 billion by 2025, and the possibility of almost 300,000 jobs by 2020, it remains a positive economic force in the U.S."

Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC: MCOA) is a cannabis and hemp marketing and distribution company. On April 4th the company announced that it has finalized the joint venture agreement with Bougainville Ventures, Inc. ("BV") in Washington State.

MCOA will invest $1 million in cash in a newly formed entity. Bougainville Ventures, Inc. will contribute its expertise in the construction and management of a 30,000 sq. ft. greenhouse facility, which will accommodate a tier-3 production and processing I-502 tenant that has decades of experience and a proven track record of consistency and quality. MCOA and BV will split equity and profits equally, 50/50. As turnkey landlords, MCOA and BV will provide our I-502 tenant with a state-of-the-art facility that creates an ideal cultivation environment that they can move into and be fully operational on day one. This enables the tenants to focus on what they do best, producing top quality products and not worrying about maintaining their infrastructure. Donald Steinberg, MCOA President and CEO said, "This project will help to expand our operations as an ancillary business into the Washington State market. Achieving this milestone of closing this deal, as well as completing our PCAOB audit at the end of the first quarter are two more pillars of the strong foundation we are building for our shareholders."
