current to municipalities that? any have other on the on morning. of hear and the number the good potential you. Kim, there's what wanted for start incumbents? that you potential you companies for about risk hearing about Thank Florida to in Do or talking you stores. been I views are Thank caps counties imposing

Kim Rivers

two getting completely one dispensaries with have Yes. law statute, they're required They required in are same ban I'm that it's that disagree zone choices. the that to completely, they under Florida would I statement. not of pharmacies. or us either Currently really where can as counties sure from.

decide market. to change change. any would a a something municipality that county that So could to from or not That's require market legislative

in no see legislative that's change absent there. There's I'm aware of So that a current I don't the risk legislative to of pending. any change structure

Pablo Zuanic

the one. Okay, then questions, just on thank one made recreational last one could you. Conference, the Benzinga the At maybe a comment November November by And the you that ballot or XXXX, XXXX. of be

would a or the You pretty be if Thank me, comments seems an this going help an it. sounded And of also. Any about nonchalant you is that in that quite on much assuming more like ballot that? in to on you're changes you. it potential wholesaling, to have regulation update And issue Florida, XXXX.

Kim Rivers

Sure.

So action. a both questions Supreme those of Court tied are to

just got and start we on have case a wholesale on the And its yet. making ruling that a court don't initiative through so way -- that's there I'll -- we've unfortunately,

for ruling However, little that bit that court legislature a more an we're down. I would assuming time perhaps could would come then that closely the for does expect would that watching implementation. that that's wholesaling to But down. After gray go of and rule-making, again, through area to ruling determine court to be a so very XXXX come it expect in avenue, the go I for to

addition, say well. certainly would as the around at is there In legislature conversation I that wholesaling

quite think could on the Trulieve, for again, could I legislature we particular go it and we that Court issue, movement opportunity amazing in the on or an which Supreme frankly. see some see based case, as

which oil state. of far to wholesale We in up or are plantings, branded the finished products largest by outdoor we down, would very would dial ability the that additional our feet the over X across square the capacity, with be good course of of we excited have million to inventory state be cultivation can which

we course, for an of at network, that product through or as distribution think by our I In also other to look opportunity small that offset certainly of very attractive a would partner cultivators. our and we craft some would CapEx be addition, manufacturers partnering

aspects, kind positive. that we would So I as of a think all see in

all that of it's the a way two question legalization question second related the On the adult-use to court. their timing. are market making through there in are pending ballot Really, Florida, of initiatives

XXXX tell how the validity of terms the get continue pending. rules, when just rule signatures the XXXX, there the with left and XX% versus to so over is adult-use overwhelming can adult-use that incredibly and in And the Supreme And to is a came -- because formulaic court for done placement. of on much I'll here on, state ballot very currently in language actually back for that's becomes then well impressive high. was to approval of on pulling medical poll That's I rating poll. cross Again, we so you Court which was touch legitimate waiting is just -- in pretty initiative an a just the participated a Florida, partisan, actually time it that XX%. support it

very pulling very, it's So well.

ballot, Supreme does through I think issue to course, getting the the that legal which require, the and just on make does Court. threshold have it some it is of steps

Pablo Zuanic

realize I certainly, do but not know, I Alex. I'm

growth pricing call the growth flower, respect the on we we think over to via to what continuing effect. So, dynamics last strong with call. and see went barbell I this we're Strong

as lower We've terpene as products, as continued strong side, well. which seeing last our through requires levels about That both specific also quarter, our pre-roll as Cultivar as the the launched added that as of and our flower for both to that very genetics, same products, and specific we're premium count Collection, our also customer we our flavonoids, growth THC then lineup. both demand of of offer in we've genetics well the type very is [ph]. strong. our well on flower extremely demand products, tier our would eights which value include addition, certainly But be mini ground course, in products, So
