Terra Tech Enlists Public Affairs Firm to Secure New Jersey Medical Marijuana License

Trenton, Aug. 05, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terra Tech Corp (TRTC), is pleased to announce that it has enlisted the services of 1868 Public Affairs to help secure a license to grow and distribute medical marijuana in New Jersey. 1868 Public Affairs, one of New Jersey’s leading public affairs firms, brings a wealth of experience in successfully advocating for their clients across all branches and departments of the state government.

If Terra Tech and 1868 Public Affairs are successful, Terra Tech will be able to transform its flagship, state of the art greenhouse into the largest, most environmentally friendly medical marijuana production facility in the state. This will also help ensure there is enough medical marijuana to meet the demand from patients across New Jersey, and provide much needed access through an additional professionally operated dispensary.

“We are confident that 1868 Public Affairs will tirelessly advocate not only on our behalf, but also on behalf of the patients who rely on medical marijuana, to make certain they have the highest quality product at the best possible price,” said Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech. “Our hydroponic greenhouse can produce a top tier product, utilizing just a fraction of the energy of most indoor cultivation facilities. Securing a license within New Jersey is a priority for the company and we are allocating the necessary resources to achieve that goal.”

1868 will work directly with Terra Tech’s East Coast cannabis team including Ken Vande Vrede, Michael James, and Evan Nison. The Company will issue additional updates in the near future.​
