January 19 2022 – Cresco Labs (CSE:CL) (OTCQX:CRLBF) (“Cresco Labs” or “the Company”), a vertically integrated multistate operator and the number one U.S. wholesaler of branded cannabis products, announced today the termination of the previously announced definitive agreement to acquire 100% of the outstanding equity interest in Blair Wellness, LLC (“Blair Wellness”), a Baltimore Maryland medical cannabis dispensary (the “Transaction”).
“We have terminated the purchase agreement with Blair Wellness due to the failure of certain closing conditions to be met prior to our specified termination date,” said Charlie Bachtell, Cresco Labs’ CEO & Co-founder. “We will continue to look for other avenues to expand our footprint in Maryland, and execute our strategy of going deep in meaningful, material states.”
