Las Vegas, May 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terra Tech Corp (TRTC) subsidiary, MediFarm LLC, has completed filings for the special use permit process for medical marijuana licensing in unincorporated Clark County, Nevada. In addition, on April 22, 2014, MediFarm LLC filed requisite information with the Clark County Department of Business Licensing for four medical marijuana applications; two Dispensaries, one Cultivation Facility and one Production Facility.

MediFarm representatives recently met with the Clark County planning department to file Land Use applications as part of the special use permit process in unincorporated Clark County. The company anticipates that Clark County Commissioners will hear applications for these special use permits on June 5th.

"This initial process in Clark County was a tremendous undertaking for our team," explains Derek Peterson, CEO Terra Tech Corp. "As a byproduct of this process we are left with a great base to build our state level applications from. We feel well positioned to submit to the state in a timely manner should we make it through the county's review process. In addition we are focusing on other counties throughout the state."

Terra Tech Corp and MediFarm LLC are currently preparing for the upcoming hearings as well as the release of the State application for licensing, which is anticipated to be mid-July 2014. Once the application becomes available, there will be a 45-day period before applications will be accepted by the State of Nevada. While Unincorporated Clark County is first in establishing and implementing their process other counties within the state will be opening up in the near future. Terra Tech intends on applying in multiple jurisdictions.
