Lexaria Updates Burlington License Application
KELOWNA, BC—December 9, 2014 - Lexaria Corp. (OTCQB: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) (the "Company" or "Lexaria") is pleased to announce progress on the Burlington, Ontario MMPR license application. Health Canada has advised our joint venture partner Enertopia Corp (ENRT) that the Burlington, Ontario application has advanced to the Enhanced Screening Stage of the application process. The Burlington Joint Venture with Enertopia Corp originally applied in July 2014 to produce 10,000kg of Medical Marihuana per year under its Licensed Producer application. Enertopia has 51% interest in the joint venture and Lexaria Corp 49% as earlier released.
Health Canada has noted the following steps in processing an application. Note there are no specific process times for each step:
|Step 1:||Preliminary Screening (Completed)|
|Step 2:||Enhanced Screening (Underway)|
|Step 3:||Security Clearance|
|Step 5:||Ready to build letter (if required by applicant)|
|Step 6:||Pre-licence inspection|
The current application is thorough and has been considerably improved by improvements made during the Preliminary Screening process, which has now been completed. The Burlington JV has requested a Ready To Build letter from Health Canada once the application has completed step 4 of the approval process. The Joint Venture (JV) has been active in the local community and has received very good community and media support. The JV also met with the local policing authority and upon licensing by Health Canada we have proposed that the local police could conduct security and swat team training at the facility. We are very pleased to be working closely with law enforcement and look forward to their insights in preventative and proactive security measures.
Lexaria thanks its managers and its consultants for their dedication and hard work in advancing the license application to date.
On November 24, 2014 Health Canada updated the number of Licensed Producers to sell Marijuana to 14 and the number of Licensed Producers to grow Marijuana at 8 for a current total of 22 Licensed Producers in Canada.
Lexaria's shares are quoted in the USA with symbol LXRP and in Canada with symbol LXX. The company searches for opportunities that could provide potential above-market returns.
