Vodis Pharmaceuticals Inc announces construction of a commercial medical marijuana facility in Bellingham

Vodis leaf

Well look who is officially starting construction to be ready for Washington State’s impending July 2015 shut down of the local medical marijuana market? A LARGE Canadian pharmaceutical company! Vodis (Vodis USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Vodis Pharmaceuticals Inc.) has commenced construction of a commercial medical marijuana facility in Bellingham for an undisclosed tenant.

This is what our corrupt state lawmakers and the WSLCB want for our medical marijuana market: to put THOUSANDS of Washingtonians out of business, and take jobs & revenue away from our residents & local companies and give them to big pharmaceutical companies/big ag. This is not what we wanted when we voted to legalize weed! We didn’t vote to become felons overnight after our right to grow an adequate number of plants was taken away, and we certainly don’t want to give our local grower/processor jobs away to big-ag/pharmaceutical companies from Canada!

The tenant in question regarding the new facility is undisclosed, however Vodis did release an earlier press release stating “Vodis Pharmaceuticals Inc. is pleased to announce its’ subsidiary, Vodis USA, has signed a sublease agreement and we are moving forward with the development of a Tier 2 Marijuana Production and Processing facility as required by the state law and governed by the Washington State Liquor Board. The Vodis facility is expected to be retrofitted to the Vodis production standards within the next 12 weeks and production to begin thereafter. … Vodis will be responsible to retrofit the previously announced lease-to-own facility in Bellingham, Washington to include a turnkey solution for the I-502 production and processing licence to begin marijuana production. That turnkey solution will include state of the art lighting, cooling, security and environmental controls. “

Does this mean that the WSLCB is constructing this “turn-key” facility in order to sell it to the highest bribing company to apply for the new medical marijuana licensees? Cough cough – oops, we meant ‘highest paying new SB5052 MMJ license applicant’?? It does appear to be so. We will be watching to see who is behind this corruption.

Are you angry about this situation? Not what you wanted to happen in the Evergreen state? Well, there is something that YOU can do about it if you are a registered voter in the state of WA. Initiative 1372 “An Initiative Measure No. 1372 to Protect & Strengthen RCW 69.51A” is currently gathering signatures, find a current listing of locations where you can sign online here. Or, print your own sheet (11×17 paper) and gather your own signatures at http://www.cppwa.org/home/initiative-measure-no-1343-protect-strengthen-rcw-69-51a.

We will also support signing Referendum 76 once it is live, however in our opinion, the referendum is not enough. Sign and support both Initiative 1372 AND Referendum 76.

News Release: VODIS PROVIDES CONSTRUCTION UPDATE OF ITS WASHINGTON STATE MARIJUANA FACILITY

May 7, 2015- Vancouver, British Columbia – Vodis Pharmaceuticals Inc. is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, VODIS USA, Inc., has commenced the first of three phases of construction at its Washington State facility, which is designed to meet the needs of the tenant.

Once complete, the growing and processing area will require inspection by the Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB), and once it passes inspection, Vodis’ tenant will become a licensed producer and processor. Completion of Phase I will provide the tenant the ability to competitively enter Washington State’s I-502 market. The processing room will be able to process up to 5 times the capacity of the initial plant canopy.

Once the facility passes inspection, the Company will then start receiving rental income from the tenant. In addition, Vodis will commence earning consulting and advisory fees. Otto Folprecht, CEO and Director of Vodis states: “We are pleased that construction is underway and our local Bellingham contractors are running ahead of schedule and within budget. We expect the license holder to initiate production by mid-July.”

As the State of Washington continues on the transition from the medical program to the new I-502 legislation, retail stores over the past six months have reported as much as a 100% increase in sales as a result of the State of Washington initiatives. Vodis Pharmaceuticals and its subsidiary, Vodis USA, are also identifying innovative growing techniques that would lower costs while at the same time increase production yields, allowing the Company’s tenant to better meet the increased demand.
