cultural space to be opened in Toronto in late 2019.  byMinistry's mission is 
to broaden and enhance perceptions toward a cannabis normalized future and 
become the global epicentre for exclusive cannabis cultural experiences. 
Ultimately, byMinistry aims to integrate verticals, to the extent permitted by 
applicable law, including dispensaries, consumption lounges, cultural 
programming, educational properties, experiential retail platforms and CBD 
convenience stores. It will also launch an in-house brand of premium 
adaptogenic and CBD-derived products in both the food and health/wellness 
categories to be sold throughout North America.

its lead investor.
