NEW YORK, July 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
According to a research reportpublished by the Arcview Group, the legal cannabis industry accelerated at a strong pace in 2016 and is expected to continue. The market research forecasts growth will reaccelerate beginning in 2018, as adult-use sales ramp up in Canada,
New Frontier Data recently published a report on the cannabis market and stated, "Cannabis stocks significantly outperformed major indexes in 2016, fueled by speculative investment based on anticipated expansion of new legal markets. In the run up to the election, stocks increased by 207.8% and continued to rise, even with an uncertain future under the new administration.

Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC: MCOA) just this morning announced that, "it has contributed the first installment of capital to Bougainville Ventures, Inc. ("BV") in partial satisfaction of the joint venture agreement entered into earlier this year in Washington State.
MCOA received $375,000 in its first round of financing. This investment will contribute to funding the development of a state-of-the-art 30,000 sq. ft. greenhouse grow facility in Oroville, Washington. Once completed, the greenhouse facility will accommodate a cannabis production and processing tenant with a Tier 3, I-502 license with significant experience growing cannabis. The total principal amount of the convertible note that MCOA executed with its financing partner is $752,500, with a 16 month term and 10% annual interest rate. Additional rounds of financing will be received as part of this note, which MCOA intends to invest in BV in satisfaction of the terms of its JV agreement.
As turnkey landlords, MCOA and BV look to provide an ideal cultivation environment that their current tenant can move into in Q3, and be fully operational and revenue producing in early Q4. As more states legalize the cultivation and consumption of cannabis, MCOA intends to replicate this business model and build the Company's real estate portfolio and increase its revenue.
Donald Steinberg, MCOA President and CEO, said, "I am very pleased that we obtained the financing to start our operations in Washington. We are projecting that this joint venture will soon be profitable and be a model that we can replicate in other states and countries. We are also happy to establish a relationship with a financing partner that is interested in supporting joint venture projects for MCOA in the future."
