"Subsequent to the 2019 year-end, Zoned Properties was validated by the United Nations and One Carbon World as the first cannabis industry-focused business to achieve carbon neutrality, we completed a $100,000 investment in an exciting new franchise start-up organization, and we have continued to expand our advisory services across the cannabis industry. We very much look forward to sharing tangible updates as we work to grow Zoned Properties as an industry-wide leader."
