Las Vegas, July 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terra Tech Corp (TRTC), subsidiary, MediFarm LLC, is pleased to announce that it has successfully submitted its applications for both a special use permit and compliance permit to the City of Las Vegas, Nevada. MediFarm's special use permit application was submitted to the City's Planning Department on July 17th. On July 23rd MediFarm submitted its application and business plan to the City's Business Licensing Department to obtain a Medical Marijuana Dispensary Compliance Permit. The compliance permit is required to be issued before the City accepts a business license application to operate a medical marijuana establishment in the City of Las Vegas. The MediFarm application presents to the City MediFarm's extensive experience in traditional agriculture as well as medical cannabis dispensary operations. The company anticipates that there will be a public hearing on the applications and that the City Council will make their selections in September or October 2014, after the state application has been submitted.
"I'm extremely proud of our team, headed by Salwa Ibrahim, who worked tirelessly to meet the strict deadlines the city put in place," said Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech Corp. "She has a tremendous amount of experience building these applications and I feel very confident about the document we submitted."
The proposed facility is approximately a mile off the strip on Western Ave. near Wyoming Ave. and located in close proximity to complimentary medical facilities with easy access to residential communities. Additionally the team has completed their state application associated with this property several weeks ahead of schedule. We anticipate on submitting to the state before August 18th. The company is now focusing on applying to operate a dispensary and a cultivation and production facility in Northern Nevada. The company intends to give further updates about their efforts throughout Nevada as they progress through the process, reach certain milestones and enter new applications.
