LAS VEGAS, Aug. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Player’s Network, Inc. (OTCQB: PNTV ), a rapidly growing company in the recreational and medical marijuana industry with licensed grow operations in 2 states, announced today its subsidiary, Green Leaf Farms Holdings (Green Leaf), is applying for multiple dispensaries in Nevada with secured locations for expected dispensaries, and has hired Christine Kramar as its Director of Compliance and Applications. PNTV is hosting a live online investor webinar to provide an update to shareholders and the investment community today at 4:20 p.m. PDT (7:20 p.m. Eastern).

Green Leaf is applying for multiple dispensaries to complement its existing four (4) Nevada licenses with hopes to become vertically integrated (adding dispensaries to its existing cultivation and production licenses). Green Leaf is part of a small group of Marijuana license holders which are eligible to apply for the remaining 64 licenses in Nevada. At this time, Green Leaf has secured three (3) strong locations for their expected dispensaries. Further details and locations will be disclosed after the application is filed. Securing locations in advance increases the likelihood of being awarded a license due to Nevada’s evaluation and scoring process.

Green Leaf has assembled an exceptional team to prepare and file its applications lead by Christine Kramar. PNTV hired Christine Kramar as its Director of Compliance and Applications. Mrs. Kramar has extensive experience working with privilege licenses while she worked for local and state governments. In addition, she brings substantial experience in government affairs, legal and business administration. Most recently, Mrs. Kramer worked as a special assistant to Steve Ross, the Pro Tem Mayor of Las Vegas, NV where she was involved in the marijuana licensing process for the State including the review of Las Vegas license applications. Prior to that period, she held management and high level administrative positions with Las Vegas performers and politicians. Serving as the Democratic National Committee Platform representative for the State of Nevada, she successfully passed legalization of Marijuana for the first time onto the national platform. Mrs. Kramar studied Business Management and Accounting at University of Redlands.

Mark Bradley, Chief Executive Officer of PNTV, commented, “I am thrilled Christine (Kramar) has joined our team and is managing the application process for Green Leaf. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience having worked for government agencies where she reviewed and processed cannabis license applications for the State (Nevada). In addition, Christine introduced us to some remarkable people who have joined the Green Leaf team as well as identified locations for dispensaries.”

Brett H. Pojunis, PNTV Director stated, “Being vertically integrated in Nevada has been our goal since we were awarded our cultivation and production licenses. Securing one or more dispensaries truly solidifies and strengthens our position in the Nevada market. I am ecstatic Christine is on board as we have worked well together in politics for many years, she certainly adds value to PNTV.”
