Not too much detail on what is essentially a vety complicated deal. So, being the cynics we are we err on the side of caution when we read any High Times press releases at the moment

 

As we reported previously only $US1.5 million in cash the rest being convertible stock.

Let’s see the deal go through and 2 quarters of retail revenues before we all start throwing our hats in the air
