万博官网app marijuana lawsuit highlights license competition

更新一月24,2019-10:47下午

Michael Frey 和 his brother Robert are suing their partner in a 万博官网app cannabis business for $125 million.

这是投资者对蓬勃发展的本地行业的一系列诉讼中的最新一例,该行业正在迅速创造出千万富翁。

The Frey brothers own a 50,000-acre cannabis cultivation 和 production facility in 万博官网app 和 are part of a joint venture called Naturex that owns the Zen Leaf dispensary in 拉斯维加斯.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in 克拉克县 District Court, the brothers accuse Illinois-based 维拉诺Holdings, which owns the other half of Naturex, of secretly submitting an application for new 万博官网app licenses without them.

维拉诺is one of the largest marijuana companies in the U.S., owning or managing 69 dispensary licenses across 14 states, according to its website. It currently operates 10 facilities in seven states 和 is building dozens more.

该公司最近筹集了1.2亿美元的资本用于扩展。本月,它聘请了百事可乐高管罗恩·古德森(Ron Goodson)担任总裁兼首席运营官。

维拉诺CEO George Archos said the company is aware of the complaint but has not had an opportunity to review the claims.

“但是,根据我们对指控的了解,我们认为该投诉没有根据,”爱可视在向《拉斯维加斯评论期刊》发表的声明中说。“我们打算积极捍卫这些主张。”

11个许可证

维拉诺’的本地实体Lone Mountain Partners于去年下半年获得了税务部的11个牌照。

该公司是这一轮的最大赢家,在该部门颁发的每六个许可证中就获得了一个。

弗雷斯夫妇说,这些许可证的总价值约为1.5亿美元。他们正在寻求这笔款项的一半,以及这些未来药房的5,000万美元的种植损失销售。

维拉诺bought a 50 percent stake in Naturex in August 2016 from the brothers for an undisclosed sum.

The brothers said in their lawsuit that they submitted all the necessary information to 维拉诺so it could submit the application on behalf ofNaturex.

However, they claim 维拉诺decided not to submit the joint application because it had not determined where it would build new dispensaries in 万博官网app.

“被告声称,如果没有在申请材料中指定地点,申请将不完整—尽管被告提供了错误的分析和没有根据的借口—原告当时合理地依赖于这种虚假陈述,’’ the lawsuit states.

The Freys say 维拉诺submitted an application through Lone Mountain without initially telling them.

维拉诺“有意和恶意地篡夺了属于Naturex的可用机会,而是利用Naturex的材料供其自己的实体被告Lone Mountain申请,而无需包括原告,也无需告知被告’预期的行动方针,” the lawsuit states.

迈克尔·弗雷(Michael Frey)在拉斯维加斯也拥有雪茄店,包括凯撒(Caesars)论坛商店的Casa Fuente。
