NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wee-Cig International Corporation (OTC Pinksheets:WCIG) reports that the Company has recently hired a French speaking sales staff in order to tap into the French speaking market. The French speaking population from France and Quebec, Canada have had a long history with smoking and using tobacco like products. In fact smoking has been considered a cultural norm to the French worldwide. With 66 million people in France and 8.18 million in Quebec respectively, Wee-Cig would like to tap into this market niche. Most retailers have ignored the French speaking segment of the market focusing on more mainstream English speaking markets.
France has been an advocate for the medical use of cannabis and medical marijuana. In fact France's ministry of health announced recently that it has approved a cannabis-based mouth spray known as Sativex, a move that brings France in line with 17 other European countries, which allows marijuana to be prescribed for medical reasons.
Further to the Company's news release of October 7th, 2014, the company has begun negotiations on its first brick and mortar store in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Also, with regards to the news release dated October 22nd, 2014, the company was deemed the busiest and most active booth at the "The Everything To Do With Sex Show" in Toronto.
Wee-Cig International is a technology company focused on being on the cutting edge of vaporization and electronic cigarettes. There are an estimated 1.2 Billion smokers in the world and Wee-Cig looks to be a part of the movement of converting them to e-cig and vape users. Some of the Head and Vape Shops carrying the Wee-Cig Products are listed in the Company's website www.weecig.net which get updated periodically.
