The Legend Grows in Michigan
TerrAscend Debuts Legend in the Great Lakes State
TORONTO, May 19, 2023 /CNW/ - TerrAscend Corp. ("TerrAscend" or the "Company") (CSE: TER) (OTCQX: TRSSF), a leading North American cannabis operator, today announced that its subsidiary, Gage Cannabis Co. ("Gage"), has launched Legend, a cannabis brand providing consumers with top-quality flower at everyday prices, in Michigan. Legend products will be available at all 19 of TerrAscend's retailers statewide, including Gage, Cookies and Pinnacle Emporium locations.
Legend aims to preserve the simplicity of cannabis and all that it has to offer with good strains, grown right, at a great price. Guided by the many generations that have fought to keep the plant's unrivaled traditions alive, Legend embraces the entourage effect, harnessing the synergy of cannabinoids and terpenes to deliver a well-rounded and balanced cannabis experience. Legend enhances the everyday by curating products that are both sessionable and affordable — because when every day is fun, it's also legendary. The initial Michigan product launch features three strains of Legend's expertly dried and cured flower, including Indica, Sativa and Hybrid strains, available in 14g and 28g. In addition to the Michigan launch, Legend is currently available in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, with plans to expand to new markets in the near future.
In the coming months, TerrAscend plans to offer additional Legend products in Michigan, including more of its consistently balanced flower, pre-rolls, and vape cartridges.
"We're excited to bring Legend's exceptional cannabis at affordable everyday prices to the second-largest cannabis market in the U.S.," said Jason Wild, Executive Chairman of TerrAscend. "We're committed to exceeding market expectations by providing a wide selection of products, and Legend always offers great strains and great times at the right price."
TerrAscend has dedicated significant shelf space to the display and sale of Legend at its locations in Addison, Adrian, Ann Arbor, Battle Creek, Buchanan, Burton, Camden, Center Line, Detroit, Edmore, Ferndale, Grand Rapids, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Morenci, Oxford and Traverse City.

Caution Regarding Cannabis Operations in the United States
Investors should note that there are significant legal restrictions and regulations that govern the cannabis industry in the United States. Cannabis remains a Schedule I drug under the US Controlled Substances Act, making it illegal under federal law in the United States to, among other things, cultivate, distribute or possess cannabis in the United States. Financial transactions involving proceeds generated by, or intended to promote, cannabis-related business activities in the United States may form the basis for prosecution under applicable US federal money laundering legislation.
While the approach to enforcement of such laws by the federal government in the United States has trended toward non-enforcement against individuals and businesses that comply with medical or adult-use cannabis programs in states where such programs are legal, strict compliance with state laws with respect to cannabis will neither absolve TerrAscend of liability under U.S. federal law, nor will it provide a defense to any federal proceeding which may be brought against TerrAscend. The enforcement of federal laws in the United States is a significant risk to the business of TerrAscend and any proceedings brought against TerrAscend thereunder may adversely affect TerrAscend's operations and financial performance.
