Forward-looking statements are those that predict or describe future events or trends and that do not relate solely to historical matters. You can generally identify forward-looking statements as statements containing the words “believe,” “expect,” “will,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “project,” “assume” or other similar expressions, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. All statements in this report regarding our future strategy, future operations, projected financial position, estimated future revenue, projected costs, future prospects, and results that might be obtained by pursuing management’s current plans and objectives are forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements because the matters they describe are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other unpredictable factors, many of which are beyond our control. Important risks that might cause our actual results to differ materially from the results contemplated by the forward-looking statements are contained in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” and “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” of this report and in our subsequent filings with the SEC. Our forward-looking statements are based on the information currently available to us and speak only as of the date on which this report was filed with the SEC. We expressly disclaim any obligation to issue any updates or revisions to our forward-looking statements, even if subsequent events cause our expectations to change regarding the matters discussed in those statements. Over time, our actual results, performance or achievements will likely differ from the anticipated results, performance or achievements that are expressed or implied by our forward-looking statements, and such difference may be significant and materially adverse to our stockholders.

Item 1. Business

 

Company Overview

 

MJ Holdings, Inc. (OTCPK: MJNE) is a highly-diversified cannabis holding company providing cultivation management, asset and infrastructure development – currently concentrated in the Las Vegas market. It is the Company’s intention to grow its business and provide a 360-degree spectrum of infrastructure, including, cannabis cultivation, production of cannabis related products, management services, dispensaries and consulting services. The Company intends to grow its business through joint ventures with existing companies possessing complementary subject matter expertise, acquisition of existing companies and through the development of new opportunities. The Company intends to “prove the concept” profitably in the rapidly expanding Las Vegas market and then use that anticipated success as a template for replicating the concept in other developing states through a combination of strategic partnerships, acquisitions and opening new operations.

 

Operational highlights:

 

  a three-acre, hybrid, outdoor, marijuana-cultivation facility (the “Cultivation Facility”) located in the Amargosa Valley of Nevada. The Company had the contractual right to manage and cultivate marijuana on this property until 2026, for which it would have received sixty percent (60%) of the net revenues realized from its management of this facility and twenty-five percent (25%) of the net revenues from equipment rental. The licensed facility is owned by Acres Cultivation, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. On January 21, 2021, the Company received a Notice of Termination, effective immediately, from Acres Cultivation, LLC. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company relocated all of its equipment utilized on the Acres lease to its 260 Acres adjacent to the Acres lease. The Company will not generate any further revenue under the Acres relationship.

 

  260 acres of farmland for the purpose of cultivating additional marijuana (the “260 Acres”) purchased in January of 2019. The Company intends to utilize the state-of-the-art Cravo® cultivation system for growing an additional five acres of marijuana on this property. The Cravo® system will allow multiple harvests per year and should result in higher annual yields per acre. The land has more than 180-acre feet of permitted water rights, which will provide more than sufficient water to markedly increase the Company’s marijuana cultivation capabilities. This facility, upon receipt of its business license in Nye County and its final inspection by the Cannabis Compliance Board (“CCB”), is expected to become operational in the summer of 2022. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company elected to relocate all of its equipment utilized on the Acres lease to its 260 Acres adjacent to the Acres lease. The Company will utilize the 260 Acres for its own harvest along with additional harvests under any Cultivation and Sales Agreements.
     
  Cultivation and Sales Agreements entered into for multiple grows on the Company’s 260 Acres located in the Amargosa Valley of Nevada. During the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company entered into separate Cultivation and Sales Agreements, whereby the Company shall retain certain independent growers to provide oversight and management of the Company’s cultivation and sale of products at its 260 Acres. The independent growers shall pay to the Company a royalty of net sales revenue with a minimum royalty after two years. As of the date of this filing, the Company is waiting on its business license in Nye County and its final inspection by the Cannabis Compliance Board before it can commence its operations under the Agreement.

 

  a nearby commercial trailer and RV park (THC Park – Tiny Home Community) was purchased in April of 2019 to supply necessary housing for the Company’s farm employees. After the Company’s 2018 harvest, it came to realize that it would need to find a more efficient method of housing and to bring its cultivation team to its facilities. The Company purchased the 50-acre plus THC Park for $600,000 in cash and $50,000 of the Company’s restricted common stock. At present, the Company’s construction and completion of this community is approximately seventy-five present complete. The impact of COVID-19 in obtaining inspections and permitting significantly delayed the completion of this community. The Company has elected to cease any renovations or additions at its Tiny Home Community until it plants its first grow on the 260 Acres and can better evaluate the need for additional housing.

  an agreement to acquire a cultivation license and production license, both currently located in Nye County Nevada. On February 5, 2021, the Company (the “Purchaser”) executed a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (“MIPA3”) with MJ Distributing, Inc. (the “Seller”) to acquire all of the outstanding membership interests of MJ Distributing C202, LLC and MJ Distributing P133, LLC, each the holder of a State of Nevada provisional medical and recreational cultivation license and a provisional medical and recreational production license. In consideration of the sale, transfer, assignment and delivery of the Membership Interests to Purchaser, and the covenants made by Seller under the MIPA3, Purchaser agreed to pay a combination of cash, promissory notes, and stock in the amount of One-Million-Two-Hundred-Fifty Thousand Dollars ($1,250,000.00) in cash and/or promissory notes and 200,000 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock, all of which constitutes the consideration agreed to herein for (the “Purchase Price”), payable as follows: (i) a non-refundable down payment in the amount of $300,000 was made on January 15, 2021, (ii) the second payment in the amount of $200,000 was made on February 5, 2021, (iii) a deposit in the amount of $310,000 was paid on February 22, 2021 ($210,000 was a pre-payment against future compensation due under the MIPA3), (iv) $200,000 was deposited on June 24, 2021, (v) $200,000 shall be deposited on or before June 12, 2021, and (vi) $250,000 shall be deposited within five (5) business days after the Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board (“CCB”) provides notice on its agenda that the Licenses are set for hearing to approve the transfer of ownership from the Seller to the Purchaser. On April 12, 2022, the CCB issued an Adult-Use Production License to MJ Distributing P133, LLC and an Adult-Use Cultivation License to MJ Distributing C202, LLC. The Company is currently awaiting its business license to be issued by Nye County, Nevada.
     
  indoor cultivation facility build-out in the City of Las Vegas (the “Indoor Facility”). Through its former subsidiary, Red Earth, LLC (“Red Earth”), the Company held a Medical Marijuana Establishment Registration Certificate, Application No. C012. In August of 2019, the Company entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Element NV, LLC (“Element”), to sell a 49% interest in the license. Under the terms of the Agreement, Element was required to invest more than $3,500,000 into this Indoor Facility. Element paid the monthly rent on the facility from December 2019 through March 2020 but failed to make any additional payments. On June 11, 2020, the Company entered into the First Amendment (“First Amendment”) to the Agreement. Under the terms of the First Amendment, the Closing Purchase Price was adjusted to $441,000, and Element was required to make a capital contribution (the “Initial Contribution Payment”) to the Target Company in the amount of $120,000 and was required to make an additional cash contribution (the Final Contribution Payment”) in the amount of $240,000. The Company terminated its discussions with Element regarding its past due payments. On or about May 7, 2021, Red Earth, received an inquiry from the State of Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board (“CCB”) regarding the transfer of ownership of the Subsidiary from its previous owners to the Company. The CCB has determined that the transfer was not formally approved, thus a Category II violation. On July 27, 2021, Red Earth entered into a Stipulation and Order for Settlement of Disciplinary Action (the “Stipulation Order”) with the CCB. Under the terms of the Stipulation Order, Red Earth agreed to present to the CCB, by not later than August 31, 2021, a plan pursuant to which the ownership of Red Earth would be returned to the original owners. The Parties to the Stipulation Order resolved the matter without the necessity of taking formal action. Red Earth agreed to pay a civil penalty of $10,000, which was paid on July 29, 2021. On August 26, 2021, the Company and the Company’s Chief Cultivation Officer and previous owner of Red Earth, Paris Balaouras, entered into a Termination Agreement. Under the terms of the Termination Agreement, the Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), dated December 15, 2017, entered into between the Company and Red Earth was terminated as of the date of the Termination Agreement resulting in the return of ownership of Red Earth to Mr. Balaouras. Neither party shall have any further obligation to one another pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement.

 

The Company may also continue to seek to identify potential acquisitions of revenue producing assets and licenses within legalized cannabis markets that can maximize shareholder value.

 

The Company may face substantial competition in the operation of cultivation facilities in Nevada. Numerous other companies have also been granted cultivation licenses, and, therefore, the Company anticipates that it will face competition from these other companies. The Company’s management team has experience in successfully developing, implementing, and operating marijuana cultivation and related businesses in other legal cannabis markets. The Company believes its experience in outdoor cultivation provides it with a distinct competitive advantage over its competitors, and it will continue to focus on this area of its operations. The Company still faces challenges engaging and retaining senior managers.

As of the date of this filing, the Company has made all required payments to MJNE. The parties are awaiting the issuance of a business license from Nye County before any grow can be initiated. It is anticipated that the license will be approved and issued during the third quarter of 2022.

 

Termination of Acres Cultivation, LLC Agreement

 

On January 21, 2021, the Company received a Notice of Termination (the “Notice”), effective immediately, from Acres Cultivation, LLC (“Acres”) on the following three (3) agreements (collectively, herein the “Cooperation Agreement”):

 

  (i) The Cultivation and Sales Agreement entered into by and between MJNE and Acres, dated as of January 1, 2019 (the “Cultivation and Sales Agreement” or “CSA”), pursuant to Sections 5.3, and 16.20 (cross-default);
     
  (ii) The Consulting Agreement, by and between Acres and MJNE, made as of January 1, 2019 (the “Consulting Agreement”), pursuant to Sections 10 and 11.10 (cross-default); and
     
  (iii) The Equipment Lease Agreement between Acres and MJNE, dated as of January 1, 2019 (the “Equipment Lease Agreement”), pursuant to Sections 8(ii), 8(iv), and 29 (cross-default).

 

The Company initiated relocating its equipment to its 260-acre farm at the end of the first quarter and does not anticipate that it will generate any further revenue under the Acres relationship.

 

The Company may also continue to seek to identify potential acquisitions of revenue producing assets and licenses within legalized cannabis markets that can maximize shareholder value.

 

The Company may face substantial competition in the operation of cultivation facilities in Nevada. Numerous other companies have also been granted cultivation licenses, and, therefore, the Company anticipates that it will face competition from these other companies. The Company’s management team has experience in successfully developing, implementing, and operating marijuana cultivation and related businesses in other legal cannabis markets. The Company believes its experience in outdoor cultivation provides it with a distinct competitive advantage over its competitors, and it will continue to focus on this area of its operations. The Company still faces challenges engaging and retaining senior managers.

 

The Company presently occupies an office suite located at 2580 S. Sorrel St., Las Vegas, NV 89146. On January 12, 2021, the Company closed on the sale of its corporate office building located at 1300 S. Jones Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89146 for the sale price of $1,627,500. The Company plans on remaining at its current location for the next 3-6 months until it can identify a new corporate office.

COVID-19

 

The novel coronavirus commonly referred to as “COVID-19” was identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a global health emergency, and on March 11, 2020, the spread of COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. On March 13, 2020, the spread of COVID-19 was declared a national emergency by former President Donald Trump. The outbreak has spread throughout Europe, the Middle East and North America, causing companies and various international jurisdictions to impose restrictions such as quarantines, business closures and travel restrictions. While these effects are expected to be temporary, the duration of the business disruptions internationally and related financial impact cannot be reasonably estimated at this time. The rapid development of the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures being taken by governments and private parties to respond to it are extremely fluid. While the Company has continuously sought to assess the potential impact of the pandemic on its financial and operating results, any assessment is subject to extreme uncertainty as to probability, severity and duration of the pandemic as reflected by infection rates at local, state, and regional levels. The Company has attempted to assess the impact of the pandemic by identifying risks in the following principal areas:

 

Mandatory Closures. In response to the pandemic, many states and localities implemented mandatory closures of, or limitations to, businesses to prevent the spread of COVID-19; this impacted the Company’s operations. More recently, the mandatory closures that impacted the Company’s operations were lifted and the Company resumed full operations, albeit subject to various COVID-19 related precautions and changes in local infection rates. The Company’s ability to generate revenue would be materially impacted by any future shut down of its operations.

 

Customer Impact. While the Company has not experienced an overall downturn in demand for its products in connection with the pandemic, if its customers become ill with COVID-19, are forced to quarantine, decide to self-quarantine or not to visit stores where its products may be sold or distribution points to observe “social distancing”, it may have material negative impact on demand for its products while the pandemic continues. While the Company has implemented measures, to reduce infection risk to its customers, regulators may not permit such measures, or such measures may not prevent a reduction in demand.

 

Supply Chain Disruption. The Company relies on third party suppliers for equipment and services to produce its products and keep its operations going. If its suppliers are unable to continue operating due to mandatory closures or other effects of the pandemic, it may negatively impact its own ability to continue operating. At this time, the Company has not experienced any failure to secure critical supplies or services. However, disruptions in the Company’s supply chain may affect its ability to continue certain aspects of the Company’s operations or may significantly increase the cost of operating its business and significantly reduce its margins.

 

Staffing Disruption. The Company is, for the time being, implementing among its staff where feasible “social distancing” measures recommended by such bodies as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Presidential Administration, as well as state and local governments. The Company has cancelled non-essential travel by employees, implemented remote meetings where possible, and permitted all staff who can work remotely to do so. For those whose duties require them to work on-site, measures have been implemented to reduce infection risk, such as reducing contact with customers, mandating additional cleaning of workspaces and hand disinfection, providing masks and gloves to certain personnel, and contact tracing following reports of employee infection. Nevertheless, despite such measures, the Company may find it difficult to ensure that its operations remain staffed due to employees falling ill with COVID-19, becoming subject to quarantine, or deciding not to come to come to work on their own volition to avoid infection. At certain locations, the Company has experienced increased absenteeism due to increased COVID-19 infection rates in certain locales. If such absenteeism increases, the Company may not be able, including through replacement and temporary staff, to continue to operate at desired levels in some or all locations.

 

Regulatory Backlog. Regulatory authorities, including those that oversee the cannabis industry on the state level, are heavily occupied with their response to the pandemic. These regulators as well as other executive and legislative bodies in the states in which the Company operates may not be able to provide the level of support and attention to day-to-day regulatory functions as well as to needed regulatory development and reform that they would otherwise have provided. Such regulatory backlog may materially hinder the development of the Company’s business by delaying such activities as product launches, facility openings and approval of business acquisitions, thus materially impeding development of its business. The Company is actively addressing the risk to business continuity represented by each of the above factors through the implementation of a broad range of measures throughout its structure and is reassessing its response to the COVID-19 pandemic on an ongoing basis. The above risks individually or collectively may have a material impact on the Company’s ability to generate revenue. Implementing measures to remediate the risks identified above may materially increase the Company’s costs of doing business, reduce its margins and potentially result in losses. While the Company has not to date experienced any overall material negative impact on its operations or financial results related to the impact of the pandemic, so long as the pandemic and measures taken in response to the pandemic are not abated, substantial risk of such impact remains, which could negatively impact the Company’s ability to generate revenue and/or profits, raise capital and complete its development plans.

 

Limited availability of vaccine. On December 11, 2020, the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer BioN-Tech COVID-19 vaccine, the first such approval. Additional EUAs were issued on December 18, 2020 for a vaccine created by Moderna, and on February 27, 2021 for a vaccine created by Janssen Biotech (a Johnson & Johnson affiliate). As of April 4, 2021, the CDC reports that approximately 168 million doses of the various vaccines have been administered in the U.S., although both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require the administration of two doses for full effectiveness. On March 2, 2021, President Biden stated that the U.S. will have sufficient vaccine supply for all adults by the end of May 2021. Actual delivery of the vaccines to individuals, however, is controlled by state and local governments using various prioritization criteria and states continue to impose activity limitations and other precautions on businesses during this period until the vaccine is widely disseminated. In addition, there can be no assurance of when the Company’s employees in any particular jurisdiction will be able to access the vaccine. Moreover, there can be no assurance that all employees will choose to avail themselves of the vaccine or, if so, when they will choose to do so. The same applies to the Company’s, customers, regulators, and suppliers. Consequently, the COVID-19 risk factors described above continue to be applicable.

The acquisition was accounted for as a “Reverse Merger”, whereby Red Earth was considered the accounting acquirer and became its wholly owned subsidiary. Upon the consummation of the acquisition, the now former members of Red Earth became the beneficial owners of approximately 88% of the Company’s Common Stock, obtained controlling interest of the Company, and retained certain of its key management positions. In accordance with the accounting treatment for a “reverse merger” or a “reverse acquisition”, the Company’s historical financial statements prior to the reverse merger will be replaced with the historical financial statements of Red Earth prior to the reverse merger in all future filings with the SEC. Red Earth is the holder of a Nevada Marijuana Establishment Certificate for the cultivation of marijuana.

 

The consolidated financial statements after completion of the reverse merger included: the assets, liabilities, and results of operations of the combined company from and after the closing date of the reverse merger, with only certain aspects of pre-consummation stockholders’ equity remaining in the consolidated financial statements.

Our Business History

 

In April 2018, the Company entered into a management agreement with Acres Cultivation, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (the “Licensed Operator”) that holds a license for the legal cultivation of marijuana for sale under the laws of the State of Nevada. In January of 2019, the Company entered into a revised agreement, which replaced the April 2018 agreement, with the Licensed Operator in order to be more stringently aligned with Nevada marijuana laws. The material terms of the agreement remain unchanged. The Licensed Operator is contractually obligated to pay over to the Company sixty percent (60%) of the net revenues realized from its management of this facility and twenty-five percent (25%) of the net revenues from equipment rental. The agreement is to remain in force until April 2026. In April 2019, the Licensed Operator was acquired by Curaleaf Holdings, Inc., a publicly traded Canadian cannabis company. The acquisition was subject to all of the contractual obligations between the Company and the Licensed Operator.

 

In April 2018, the State of Nevada finalized and approved the transfer of provisional Medical Marijuana Establishment Registration Certificate No. 012 (the “Certificate”) from Acres Medical, LLC to the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Red Earth, LLC (“Red Earth”). HDGLV, LLC (“HDGLV”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Red Earth, holds a triple-net leasehold interest in a 17,298 square-foot commercial building located on Western Avenue in the City of Las Vegas, which will be home to the Company’s indoor cultivation facility (the “Western Facility”). The initial term of the lease is for a period of ten years with two additional five-year lease options. HDGLV also possesses an option to purchase the building for $2,607,880 which is exercisable between months 25 and 60 of the initial term of the lease. In August of 2018, the Company received final approval from the State of Nevada, Department of Taxation, to commence cultivation activities with respect to the Certificate. Contemporaneously therewith, Red Earth was issued a Business License by the City of Las Vegas to operate a marijuana cultivation facility at the Western Facility. In October of 2018, the Company was requested by the City of Las Vegas Department of Building & Safety to make additional modifications to the building, specifically the removal and remediation of all asbestos materials in the building, which was completed in June of 2019 at a cost of approximately $140,000. In July of 2019, the City of Las Vegas asked the Company to amend its Business License and modify its Special Use Permit (“SUP”) to conform with updated marijuana cultivation requirements within the City. A new SUP was granted on October 9, 2019. The Company expects to receive its new business license in Q4 of 2020, which will then allow the Company to commence legal marijuana cultivation activities within the City of Las Vegas. As of August 26, 2021, the Company was no longer the owner of HDGLV as per the terms of the Termination Agreement between the Company and Paris Balaouras. Please see Note 7 — Intangible Assets and Note 15 — Gain on Disposal of Subsidiary and for further information.

In August of 2018, the Company executed a letter of intent (“LOI”) for the acquisition of all of the membership units of Farm Road, LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company (“Farm Road”). Farm Road was the owner of five parcels of farmland in the Amargosa Valley of Nevada totaling 260 acres and the concomitant 180 acre-feet of water rights. Pursuant to the terms of a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (“MIPA”) executed between the Company and Farm Road in November of 2018, the Company was to acquire Farm Road for $1,000,000 on the following terms: a deposit of $50,000 in cash and $50,000 of the Company’s restricted common stock upon execution of the LOI, was to be held in escrow until closing, $150,000 in cash payable at closing and a promissory note bearing 5% simple annual interest (the “Promissory Note”) in the amount of $750,000.00 payable to FR Holdings, LLC (an unrelated third party) (“FRH”) in 36 equal monthly interest only payments of three thousand one hundred twenty five ($3,125.00) dollars commencing on the March 1, 2019. On January 18, 2019, pursuant to the terms of the MIPA, the Company acquired a 100% interest in Farm Road. The terms of the Promissory Note include a balloon payment to be made on January 17, 2022 of any of the then remaining principal balance and accrued interest. The MIPA further provides that FRH shall be entitled to receive a consulting fee of five per cent (5%) of the gross sales from any commercial use of the property up to a maximum of five hundred thousand ($500,000.00) dollars payable to FRH within two years of the January 18, 2019 closing date. The land acquired in Amargosa Valley will be the home of the Company’s Nye County cultivation facility upon closing of the purchase of the cultivation and production certificates in the MIPA3. Please see Note 19 — Subsequent Events for further information.

 

The Company has joined with more than 15 other plaintiffs in an action against the State of Nevada in regard to how the applications were scored and as to why licenses were granted to other applicants in contravention of the guidelines published by the State of Nevada. On August 23, 2019, a Nevada District Court judge issued a preliminary injunction enjoining any of the entities that were granted licenses from opening new dispensaries based upon the failure of NVDOT (the administrative body tasked with adopting and enforcing marijuana regulations within the State of Nevada) to enforce a provision of Ballot Question 2 (“BQ2”), that was approved by Nevada voters in 2016 and adopted by the Nevada legislature and codified as NRS 453D, which legalized the sale and distribution of recreational use marijuana. The law requires that “each prospective owner, officer and board member of a marijuana establishment license applicant” undergo a background check. The judge found that many of the successful license applicants failed to comply with this requirement. On August 29, 2019, the judge modified the ruling and is allowing thirteen of the successful license applicants who the State of Nevada have certified as having complied with the requirements of BQ2 to open new dispensaries as granted in December of 2018. The plaintiffs shall now continue to trial on the merits of the pending litigation against the State of Nevada. In March of 2020, counsel for Red Earth withdrew from its representation of Red Earth. Red Earth is actively trying to retain substitute counsel, which as of the date of this filing Red Earth remains unrepresented in this matter. The trial, which was scheduled to commence in April of 2020, has been postponed by the State of Nevada as part of their implementation measures to stop the spread of COVID-19, as of the date of this filing the trial has not commenced.

In April of 2019, Roger Bloss was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Company.

 

In April of 2019, the Company executed a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “MIPA”) to acquire all of the membership interests in two Nevada limited liability companies that are each the holder of a State of Nevada marijuana license. Marijuana Establishment Registration Certificate, Application No. C202 and Marijuana Establishment Registration Certificate, Application No. P133 (collectively the “Certificates”). The terms of the MIPA required the Company to purchase the licenses for the total sum of $1,250,000 each - $750,000 in cash per license and $500,000 of the Company’s restricted common stock per license. The terms of the MIPA provide for a $250,000 non-refundable down payment and include a short term note in the amount of $500,000 carrying an annual interest rate of two percent (2%) that was due and payable on or before October 18, 2019. On October 17, 2019, the State of Nevada’s Governor issued an executive order restricting the transfer of all Nevada marijuana licenses (the “Moratorium”). As of the date of this filing, the Company has made deposits totaling $550,000 and has reduced the principal of the aforementioned note to $250,000. The Company is required to issue $1,000,000 of shares of its restricted common stock in fulfillment of its obligations in the MIPA. As of the date of this filing, these shares have not been issued. The Company also executed a $750,000 long term note (the “LT Note”) in favor of the current license holders that becomes due and payable upon the earliest of a) six months after the transfer of the Certificates to the Company, or b) six months after the production/cultivation is declared fully operational by the applicable regulatory agencies, or c) March 10, 2020. On February 19, 2020, the Company was put on notice by the Seller that it is in default under the terms of the MIPA. Additionally, pursuant to the terms of the MIPA, the Company was required to enter into a $15,000 per month sub-lease (retroactive to March 1, 2019) for the 10-acre cultivation/production facility located in Pahrump, Nye County, NV and install a mobile production trailer. The Company failed to make the required payments under the MIPA and the Agreement was terminated. Please see Note 9 —Asset Impairment for further information.

 

In April of 2019, the Company consummated its purchase of an approximately 50-acre, commercial trailer and RV park (the “Trailer Park”) in close proximity to its Amargosa Valley cultivation facilities. The Trailer Park can accommodate up to 90 trailers and RV’s. There presently are 17 occupied trailers in the Trailer Park, and the Company is making the necessary upgrades to bring additional units to the facility to provide housing for its farm personnel. The Company purchased the Trailer Park for a total of $600,000 in cash and $50,000 of the Company’s restricted common stock, resulting in the issuance of 66,667 shares. The Sellers hold a $250,000 note, bearing interest at six and one-half percent resulting in monthly payments in the amount of $2,178 based upon a 15-year amortization schedule (the “TP Note”). The TP Note requires additional principal reduction payments in the amount of $50,000 on or before April 5, 2020 and April 5, 2021, respectively.

The Company intends to continue to grow its business through the acquisition of existing companies and/or through the development of new opportunities and joint ventures that can maximize shareholder value while providing a 360-degree spectrum of infrastructure (dispensaries), cultivation, production, management, and consulting services in the regulated cannabis industry.

 

Marijuana Industry Overview

 

The Company currently operates a marijuana business in the State of Nevada. Although the possession, cultivation and distribution of marijuana is permitted in Nevada, provided compliance with applicable state and local laws, rules, and regulations, marijuana is illegal under federal law. The Company believes it operates its business in compliance with applicable state laws and regulations. Any changes in federal, state, or local law enforcement regarding marijuana may affect its ability to operate its business. Strict enforcement of federal law regarding marijuana would likely result in the inability to proceed with its business plans, could expose the Company to potential criminal liability, and could subject its properties to civil forfeiture. Any changes in banking, insurance, or other business services may also affect the Company’s ability to operate its business.

 

Marijuana cultivation refers to the planting, tending, improving and harvesting of the flowering plant Cannabis, primarily for the production and consumption of cannabis flowers, often referred to as “buds”. The cultivation techniques for marijuana cultivation differ than for other purposes such as hemp production. Generally, references to marijuana cultivation and production do not include hemp production.

 

Cannabis belongs to the genus Cannabis in the family Cannabaceae and for the purposes of production and consumption, includes three species, C. sativa (“Sativa”), C. Indica (“Indica”), and C. ruderalis (“Ruderalis”). Sativa and Indica generally grow tall with some varieties reaching approximately 4 meters. The female plants produce flowers rich in tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”). Ruderalis is a short plant and produces trace amounts of THC but is very rich in cannabidiol (“CBD”), which is an antagonist (inhibits the physiological action) to THC.

 

As of February 2022, there are a total of 38 states, plus the District of Columbia, with legislation passed as it relates to medicinal cannabis. These state laws are in direct conflict with the United States Federal Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. § 811) (“CSA”), which places controlled substances, including cannabis, in a schedule. Cannabis is classified as a Schedule I drug, which is viewed as having a high potential for abuse, has no currently accepted use for medical treatment in the U.S., and lacks acceptable safety for use under medical supervision. These 35 states, plus the District of Columbia, have adopted laws that exempt patients who use medicinal cannabis under a physician’s supervision from state criminal penalties. These are collectively referred to as the states that have de-criminalized medicinal cannabis, although there is a subtle difference between de-criminalization and legalization, and each state’s laws are different.

 

As of February 2022, 18 states and the District of Columbia now allow for the recreational use and possession of small amounts of marijuana and marijuana products. Decriminalization of marijuana varies by state. Decriminalization generally means that violators of local marijuana laws may be subject to civil penalty rather than face criminal prosecution. Fifteen states have decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana but have not legalized possession. In these states decriminalization can mean possession of as little as ten grams of marijuana up to one-hundred grams of marijuana that will not result in any criminal prosecution but may result in civil fines. In three states, Idaho, South Dakota, and Kansas, the cultivation, possession or use of marijuana is strictly prohibited and violators may be subject to criminal prosecution. In Nevada, where the Company is headquartered and has focused most of its activities, legalized marijuana for recreational use was effective as of July 1, 2017, which made it legal for adults over the age of 21 to use marijuana and to possess up to one ounce of marijuana flowers and one-eighth of an ounce of marijuana concentrates. Individuals are also permitted to grow up to six marijuana plants for personal use. In addition, businesses can legally, pursuant to state regulations, cultivate, process, dispense, distribute, and test marijuana products under certain conditions.

The dichotomy between federal and state laws has limited the access to banking and other financial services by marijuana businesses. Recently the U.S. Department of Justice (the “DOJ”) and the U.S. Department of Treasury issued guidance for banks considering conducting business with marijuana dispensaries in states where those businesses are legal, pursuant to which banks must now file a Marijuana Limited Suspicious Activity Report that states the marijuana business is following the government’s guidelines with regard to revenue that is generated exclusively from legal sales. However, since the same guidance noted that banks could still face prosecution if they provide financial services to marijuana businesses, it has led to the widespread refusal of the banking industry to offer banking services to marijuana businesses operating within state and local laws. In March of this year, U.S. Congressman Ed Perlmutter (D – Colorado) introduced house bill H.R. 1595, known as the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act to allow legally operating cannabis related businesses to utilize traditional banking services without fear of federal agencies taking legal action against the banks or their customers. The SAFE bill has strong bipartisan support in the House of Representatives and many industry observers anticipate it will be ratified within the next year.

 

The DOJ has not historically devoted resources to prosecuting individuals whose conduct is limited to possession of small amounts of marijuana for use on private property but has relied on state and local law enforcement to address marijuana activity.

 

In the event the DOJ reverses its stated policy and begins strict enforcement of the CSA in states that have laws legalizing medical marijuana and recreational marijuana in small amounts, there may be a direct and adverse impact to the Company’s business and its revenue and profits.

 

Furthermore, H.R. 83, known as the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment, is a rider to the annual appropriations bill that prohibits the DOJ from using federal funds to prevent certain states, including Nevada and California, from implementing their own laws that authorized the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana. This prohibition was in place until November 21, 2019.

 

The Company is monitoring the Biden administration’s, the DOJ’s, and Congress’ positions on federal marijuana law and policy. Based on public statements and reports, the Company understands that certain aspects of those laws and policies are currently under review, but no official changes have been announced. It is possible that certain changes to existing laws or policies could have a negative effect on its business and results of operations.

Risks Relating to Our Business and Industry

 

The report of our independent registered public accounting firm that accompanies our audited consolidated financial statements includes a going concern explanatory paragraph in which such firm expressed substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Our financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. However, we are a development stage company with current operations established in October 2016. As of December 31, 2021, our accumulated deficit was $16,472,629. It is not possible at this time for us to predict with assurance the potential success of our business. The revenue and income potential of our proposed business and operations are unknown. If we cannot continue as a viable entity, we may be unable to continue our operations and you may lose some or all of your investment in our common stock. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

We have a limited operating history, which may make it difficult for investors to predict future performance based on current operations.

 

We have a limited operating history upon which investors may base an evaluation of our potential future performance. In particular, we have not proven that we can sell cannabis products in a manner that enables us to be profitable and meet customer requirements, obtain the necessary permits and/or achieve certain milestones to develop our cultivation businesses, enhance our line of cannabis products, develop and maintain relationships with customers and strategic partners, to raise sufficient capital in the public and/or private markets, or respond effectively to competitive pressures. As a result, there can be no assurance that we will be able to develop or maintain consistent revenue sources, or that our operations will be profitable and/or generate positive cash flow.

 

Any forecasts we make about our operations may prove to be inaccurate. We must, among other things, determine appropriate risks, rewards, and level of investment in our product lines, respond to economic and market variables outside of our control, respond to competitive developments and continue to attract, retain, and motivate qualified employees. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in meeting these challenges and addressing such risks and the failure to do so could have a materially adverse effect on our business, results of operations, and financial condition. Our prospects must be considered in light of the risks, expenses, and difficulties frequently encountered by companies in the early stage of development. As a result of these risks, challenges, and uncertainties, the value of your investment could be significantly reduced or completely lost.

 

We will likely need additional capital to sustain our operations and will likely need to seek further financing, which we may not be able to obtain on acceptable terms or at all. If we fail to raise additional capital, as needed, our ability to implement our business model and strategy could be compromised.

 

As of December 31, 2021, we had limited capital resources and operations. Through that date, our operations had been funded primarily from the proceeds of equity financings. We may require additional capital in the near future to develop business operations at our Farm Road facility in Amargosa, Nevada, to expand our production of our future franchise production lines, to develop our intellectual property base, and establish our targeted levels of commercial production. We may not be able to obtain additional financing on terms acceptable to us, or at all. In particular, because marijuana is illegal under federal law, we may have difficulty attracting investors.

 

We have incurred losses in prior periods, and losses in the future could cause the quoted price of our Common Stock to decline or have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, our ability to pay our debts as they become due, and on our cash flows.

 

We have incurred losses in prior periods. For the year ended December 31, 2021, we incurred net income of $3,530,331 and, as of that date, we had an accumulated deficit of $16,472,629. We had a net loss of $3,973,128 for the year ended December 31, 2020 and, as of that date, we had an accumulated deficit of approximately $20,002,960. Any losses in the future could cause the quoted price of our Common Stock to decline or have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, our ability to pay our debts as they become due, and on our cash flow.

 

19

 

 

Even if we obtain financing for our near-term operations, we expect that we will require additional capital thereafter. Our capital needs will depend on numerous factors including: (i) our profitability; (ii) the release of competitive products by our competition; (iii) the level of our investment in research and development, and (iv) the amount of our capital expenditures, including acquisitions. We cannot assure you that we will be able to obtain capital in the future to meet our needs.

 

If we raise additional funds through the issuance of equity or convertible debt securities, the percentage ownership held by our existing stockholders will be reduced and our stockholders may experience significant dilution. In addition, new securities may contain rights, preferences, or privileges that are senior to those of our Common Stock. If we raise additional capital by incurring debt, this will result in increased interest expense. If we raise additional funds through the issuance of securities, market fluctuations in the price of our shares of Common Stock could limit our ability to obtain equity financing.

 

We cannot give you any assurance that any additional financing will be available to us, or if available, will be on terms favorable to us. If we are unable to raise capital when needed, our business, financial condition, and results of operations would be materially adversely affected, and we could be forced to reduce or discontinue our operations.

 

We face intense competition and many of our competitors have greater resources that may enable them to compete more effectively.

 

The industries in which we operate in general are subject to intense and increasing competition. Some of our competitors may have greater capital resources, facilities, and diversity of product lines, which may enable them to compete more effectively in this market. Our competitors may devote their resources to developing and marketing products that will directly compete with our product lines. Due to this competition, there is no assurance that we will not encounter difficulties in obtaining revenues and market share or in the positioning of our products. There are no assurances that competition in our respective industries will not lead to reduced prices for our products. If we are unable to successfully compete with existing companies and new entrants to the market this will have a negative impact on our business and financial condition.

 

If we fail to protect our intellectual property, our business could be adversely affected.

 

Our viability will depend, in part, on our ability to develop and maintain the proprietary aspects of our intellectual property to distinguish our products from our competitors’ products. We rely on copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and confidentiality provisions to establish and protect our intellectual property.

 

Any infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property could damage its value and limit our ability to compete. We may have to engage in litigation to protect the rights to our intellectual property, which could result in significant litigation costs and require a significant amount of our time. In addition, our ability to enforce and protect our intellectual property rights may be limited in certain countries outside the United States, which could make it easier for competitors to capture market position in such countries by utilizing technologies that are similar to those developed or licensed by us.

 

Competitors may also harm our sales by designing products that mirror our products or processes without infringing on our intellectual property rights. If we do not obtain sufficient protection for our intellectual property, or if we are unable to effectively enforce our intellectual property rights, our competitiveness could be impaired, which would limit our growth and future revenue.

 

We may also find it necessary to bring infringement or other actions against third parties to seek to protect our intellectual property rights. Litigation of this nature, even if successful, is often expensive and time-consuming to prosecute and there can be no assurance that we will have the financial or other resources to enforce our rights or be able to enforce our rights or prevent other parties from developing similar products or processes or designing around our intellectual property.

 

20

 

 

Although we believe that our products and processes do not and will not infringe upon the patents or violate the proprietary rights of others, it is possible such infringement or violation has occurred or may occur, which could have a material adverse effect on our business.

 

We are not aware of any infringement by us of any person’s or entity’s intellectual property rights. In the event that products we sell or processes we employ are deemed to infringe upon the patents or proprietary rights of others, we could be required to modify our products or processes or obtain a license for the manufacture and/or sale of such products or processes or cease selling such products or employing such processes. In such event, there can be no assurance that we would be able to do so in a timely manner, upon acceptable terms and conditions, or at all, and the failure to do any of the foregoing could have a material adverse effect upon our business.

 

There can be no assurance that we will have the financial or other resources necessary to enforce or defend a patent infringement or proprietary rights violation action. If our products or processes are deemed to infringe or likely to infringe upon the patents or proprietary rights of others, we could be subject to injunctive relief and, under certain circumstances, become liable for damages, which could also have a material adverse effect on our business and our financial condition.

 

Our trade secrets may be difficult to protect.

 

Our success depends upon the skills, knowledge, and experience of our scientific and technical personnel, our consultants and advisors, as well as our licensors and contractors. Because we operate in several highly competitive industries, we rely in part on trade secrets to protect our proprietary technology and processes. However, trade secrets are difficult to protect. We enter into confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements with our corporate partners, employees, consultants, outside scientific collaborators, developers, and other advisors. These agreements generally require that the receiving party keep confidential and not disclose to third parties’ confidential information developed by the receiving party or made known to the receiving party by us during the course of the receiving party’s relationship with us. These agreements also generally provide that inventions conceived by the receiving party in the course of rendering services to us will be our exclusive property, and we enter into assignment agreements to perfect our rights.

 

These confidentiality, inventions, and assignment agreements may be breached and may not effectively assign intellectual property rights to us. Our trade secrets also could be independently discovered by competitors, in which case we would not be able to prevent the use of such trade secrets by our competitors. The enforcement of a claim alleging that a party illegally obtained and was using our trade secrets could be difficult, expensive, and time consuming and the outcome would be unpredictable. In addition, courts outside the United States may be less willing to protect trade secrets. The failure to obtain or maintain meaningful trade secret protection could adversely affect our competitive position.

 

Our business, financial condition, results of operations, and cash flow may in the future be negatively impacted by challenging global economic conditions.

 

Future disruptions and volatility in global financial markets and declining consumer and business confidence could lead to decreased levels of consumer spending. These macroeconomic developments could negatively impact our business, which depends on the general economic environment and levels of consumer spending. As a result, we may not be able to maintain our existing customers or attract new customers, or we may be forced to reduce the price of our products. We are unable to predict the likelihood of the occurrence, duration, or severity of such disruptions in the credit and financial markets and adverse global economic conditions. Any general or market-specific economic downturn could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations, and cash flow.

 

21

 

 

Our future success depends on our key executive officers and our ability to attract, retain, and motivate qualified personnel.

 

Our future success largely depends upon the continued services of our executive officers and management team. If one or more of our executive officers are unable or unwilling to continue in their present positions, we may not be able to replace them readily, if at all. Additionally, we may incur additional expenses to recruit and retain new executive officers. If any of our executive officers joins a competitor or forms a competing company, we may lose some or all of our customers. Finally, we do not maintain “key person” life insurance on any of our executive officers. Because of these factors, the loss of the services of any of these key persons could adversely affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations, and thereby an investment in our stock.

 

Our continuing ability to attract and retain highly qualified personnel will also be critical to our success because we will need to hire and retain additional personnel as our business grows. There can be no assurance that we will be able to attract or retain highly qualified personnel. We face significant competition for skilled personnel in our industries. In particular, if the marijuana industry continues to grow, demand for personnel may become more competitive. This competition may make it more difficult and expensive to attract, hire, and retain qualified managers and employees. Because of these factors, we may not be able to effectively manage or grow our business, which could adversely affect our financial condition or business. As a result, the value of your investment could be significantly reduced or completely lost.

 

We may not be able to effectively manage our growth or improve our operational, financial, and management information systems, which would impair our results of operations.

 

In the near term, we intend to expand the scope of our operations activities significantly. If we are successful in executing our business plan, we will experience growth in our business that could place a significant strain on our business operations, finances, management, and other resources. The factors that may place strain on our resources include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

  The need for continued development of our financial and information management systems;
     
  The need to manage strategic relationships and agreements with manufacturers, customers, and partners, and
     
  Difficulties in hiring and retaining skilled management, technical, and other personnel necessary to support and manage our business

 

Additionally, our strategy envisions a period of rapid growth that may impose a significant burden on our administrative and operational resources. Our ability to effectively manage growth will require us to substantially expand the capabilities of our administrative and operational resources and to attract, train, manage, and retain qualified management and other personnel. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in recruiting and retaining new employees or retaining existing employees.

 

We cannot provide assurances that our management will be able to manage this growth effectively. Our failure to successfully manage growth could result in our sales not increasing commensurately with capital investments or otherwise materially adversely affecting our business, financial condition, or results of operations.

 

If we are unable to continually innovate and increase efficiencies, our ability to attract new customers may be adversely affected.

 

In the area of innovation, we must be able to develop new technologies and products that appeal to our customers. This depends, in part, on the technological and creative skills of our personnel and on our ability to protect our intellectual property rights. We may not be successful in the development, introduction, marketing, and sourcing of new technologies or innovations, that satisfy customer needs, achieve market acceptance, or generate satisfactory financial returns.

 

We are dependent on the popularity of consumer acceptance of our current and future product lines.

 

Our ability to generate revenue and be successful in the implementation of our business plan is dependent on consumer acceptance and demand of our current and future product lines. In the near term, we expect to begin operating a cultivation facility on our 260-acre Farm in Nevada at which we expect to grow and sell marijuana on a commercial basis. Acceptance of our cannabis products, will depend on several factors, including availability, cost, ease of use, familiarity of use, convenience, effectiveness, safety, and reliability. If customers do not accept our products, or if we fail to meet customers’ needs and expectations adequately, our ability to continue generating revenues could be reduced.

 

22

 

 

A drop in the retail price of medical marijuana and recreational (adult use) marijuana products may negatively impact our business.

 

In the future, the demand for the marijuana we intend to cultivate will depend in part on the market price of commercially grown marijuana. Fluctuations in economic and market conditions that impact the prices of commercially grown marijuana, such as increases in the supply of such marijuana and the decrease in the price of products using commercially grown marijuana, could cause the demand for our marijuana products to decline, which would have a negative impact on our business.

 

Federal regulation and enforcement may adversely affect the implementation of cannabis laws and regulations may negatively impact our revenues and profits.

 

Currently, there are 38 states plus the District of Columbia that have laws and/or regulations that recognize, in one form or another, legitimate medical uses for cannabis and consumer use of cannabis in connection with medical treatment, as well as, in some cases, the legalization of cannabis for adult use. Many other states are considering similar legislation. Conversely, under the CSA, the policies and regulations of the federal government and its agencies are that cannabis has no medical benefit and a range of activities including cultivation and the personal use of cannabis is prohibited. Unless and until Congress amends the CSA with respect to marijuana, as to the timing or scope of any such potential amendments there can be no assurance, there is a risk that federal authorities may enforce current federal law, and we may be deemed to be producing, cultivating, or dispensing marijuana in violation of federal law. Thus, active enforcement of the current federal regulatory position on cannabis may indirectly and adversely affect our revenues and profits. The risk of strict enforcement of the CSA in light of Congressional activity, judicial holdings, and stated federal policy remains uncertain. In February 2017, the Trump administration announced that there may be “greater enforcement” of federal laws regarding marijuana. Any such enforcement actions could have a negative effect on our business and results of operations.

 

On January 4, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a Marijuana Enforcement Memorandum that rescinded guidance previously issued to federal law enforcement in a memorandum known as the “Cole Memo”. The Cole Memo provided that the DOJ is committed to the enforcement of the CSA, but the DOJ is also committed to using its limited investigative and prosecutorial resources to address the most significant threats in the most effective, consistent, and rational way. On April 10, 2019, U.S. Attorney General William Barr, during testimony before the U.S, Senate Appropriations sub-committee, stated “I am accepting the Cole Memorandum for now, but I have generally left it up to the U.S. Attorneys in each state to determine what the best approach is in that state,” A.G. Barr further testified during the hearing. “I haven’t heard any complaints from the states that have legalized marijuana.”

 

The guidance in the “Cole Memo” sets forth certain enforcement priorities that are important to the federal government:

 

  Distribution of marijuana to children;
     
  Revenue from the sale of marijuana going to criminals;
     
  Diversion of medical marijuana from states where it is legal to states where it is not;
     
  Using state authorized marijuana activity as a pretext of another illegal drug activity;
     
  Preventing violence in the cultivation and distribution of marijuana;
     
  Preventing drugged driving;
     
  Growing marijuana on federal property; and
     
  Preventing possession or use of marijuana on federal property.

 

23

 

 

The DOJ historically has not devoted resources to prosecuting individuals whose conduct is limited to possession of small amounts of marijuana for use on private property but has relied on state and local law enforcement to address marijuana activity. In the event the DOJ reverses its stated policy and begins strict enforcement of the CSA in states that have laws legalizing medical marijuana and recreational marijuana in small amounts, there may be a direct and adverse impact to our business and our revenue and profits. Furthermore, H.R. 83, known as the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment, is a rider to the annual appropriations bill that prohibits the DOJ from using federal funds to prevent certain states, including Nevada and California, from implementing their own laws that authorized the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana.

 

On September 27, 2018, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency announced that drugs, including “finished dosage formulations” of CBD with THC below 0.1%, will be considered Schedule 5 drugs as long as the medications have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 generally referred to as the 2018 Farm Bill included provisions to greatly expand the ability to grow industrial hemp in the United States and declassified hemp as a Schedule 1 controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act. By definition hemp must have a less than .03% concentration of THC or it is then considered marijuana. While the U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) has primary jurisdiction over the cultivation of industrial hemp, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) continues to have responsibility to regulate cannabis products under the Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act (“FD&C Act”). Therefore, any product, including hemp derived products, that make any claims as to the therapeutic benefit of the product must be approved by the FDA in advance of any sales to the public.

 

We could be found to be violating laws related to cannabis.

 

Currently, there are 38 states plus the District of Columbia that have laws and/or regulations that recognize, in one form or another, legitimate medical uses for cannabis and consumer use of cannabis in connection with medical treatment, as well as, in some cases, the legalization of cannabis for adult use. Many other states are considering similar legislation. Conversely, under the CSA, the policies and regulations of the federal government and its agencies are that cannabis has no medical benefit and a range of activities including cultivation and the personal use of cannabis is prohibited. Unless and until Congress amends the CSA with respect to medical marijuana, as to the timing or scope of any such amendments there can be no assurance, there is a risk that federal authorities may enforce current federal law. The risk of strict enforcement of the CSA in light of Congressional activity, judicial holdings, and stated federal policy remains uncertain. With respect to our greenhouse products, we intend to market and sell our greenhouse solutions to marijuana growers. Should it be determined under the CSA that our greenhouse products or equipment are deemed to fall under the definition of drug paraphernalia because its products could be determined to be primarily intended or designed for use in manufacturing or producing cannabis, we could be found to be in violation of federal drug paraphernalia laws and there may be a direct and adverse effect on our business, revenues, and profits. With respect to Red Earth, we do not currently cultivate, produce, sell, or distribute any marijuana, and, therefore, have no risk that we will be deemed to cultivate, produce, sell, or distribute any marijuana in violation of federal law. However, if we obtain the necessary final governmental approvals and permits in Nevada to commence the cultivation and production of marijuana, as to the successfully achievement of any or all of such objectives there can be no assurance, we could be found in violation of the CSA. This would cause a direct and adverse effect on our subsidiaries’ businesses, or intended businesses, and on our revenue and prospective profits.

 

Variations in state and local regulation, and enforcement in states that have legalized cannabis, may restrict marijuana-related activities, including activities related to medical cannabis, which may negatively impact our revenues and prospective profits.

 

Individual state laws do not always conform to the federal standard or to other states laws. A number of states have decriminalized marijuana to varying degrees, other states have created exemptions specifically for medical cannabis, and several have both decriminalization and medical laws. As of the date of this filing, 18 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the recreational use of cannabis. Variations exist among states that have legalized, decriminalized, or created medical marijuana exemptions. For example, certain states have limits on the number of marijuana plants that can be homegrown. In most states, the cultivation of marijuana for personal use continues to be prohibited except for those states that allow small-scale cultivation by the individual in possession of medical marijuana needing care or that person’s caregiver. Active enforcement of state laws that prohibit personal cultivation of marijuana may indirectly and adversely affect our business and our revenue and profits.

 

24

 

 

Prospective customers may be deterred from doing business with a company with a significant nationwide online presence because of fears of federal or state enforcement of laws prohibiting possession and sale of medical or recreational marijuana.

 

Our website is visible in jurisdictions where medicinal and/or recreational use of marijuana is not permitted and, as a result, we may be found to be violating the laws of those jurisdictions.

 

Marijuana remains illegal under federal law.

 

Marijuana is a Schedule-I controlled substance and is illegal under federal law. Even in those 38 states in which the use of marijuana has been legalized, its use remains a violation of federal law. Since federal law criminalizing the use of marijuana preempts state laws that legalize its use, strict enforcement of federal law regarding marijuana would likely result in our inability to proceed with our business plan, especially in respect of our marijuana cultivation, production and dispensaries. In addition, our assets, including real property, cash, equipment, and other goods, could be subject to asset forfeiture because marijuana is still federally illegal.

 

In February 2017, the Trump administration announced that there may be “greater enforcement” of federal laws regarding marijuana. In January 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded previously issued guidance. Any such enforcement actions or changes in federal policy or guidance could have a negative effect on our business and results of operations. On November 7, 2018, Jeff Sessions resigned as the Attorney General of the United States. Mr. Sessions was succeeded by William Barr who has publicly stated that he would not prosecute legal marijuana businesses that rely on the Cole memo.

 

In the future, we will not be able to deduct some of our business expenses.

 

Section 280E of the Internal Revenue Code prohibits any business engaged in the trafficking of controlled substances (within the meaning of schedule I and II of the Controlled Substances Act) from deducting their ordinary and necessary business expenses, which may force us to pay higher effective federal tax rates than similar companies in other industries. The effective tax rate on a marijuana business depends on how large its ratio of nondeductible expenses is to its total revenues. Therefore, our marijuana business may be less profitable than it could otherwise be.

 

We may not be able to attract or retain any independent directors.

 

Our board of directors (the “Board”) is not currently comprised of a majority of independent directors. We may have difficulty attracting and retaining independent directors because, among other things, we operate in the marijuana industry.

 

We may not be able to successfully execute on our merger and acquisition strategy.

 

Our business plan depends in part on merging with or acquiring other businesses in the marijuana industry. The success of any acquisition will depend upon, among other things, our ability to integrate acquired personnel, operations, products and technologies into our organization effectively, to retain and motivate key personnel of acquired businesses, and to retain their customers. Any acquisition may result in diversion of management’s attention from other business concerns, and such acquisition may be dilutive to our financial results and/or result in impairment charges and write-offs. We might also spend time and money investigating and negotiating with potential acquisition or investment targets, but not complete the transaction.

 

Although we expect to realize strategic, operational, and financial benefits as a result of our acquisitions, we cannot predict whether and to what extent such benefits will be achieved. There are significant challenges to integrating an acquired operation into our business.

 

Any future acquisition could involve other risks, including the assumption of unidentified liabilities for which we, as a successor owner, may be responsible. These transactions typically involve a number of risks and present financial and other challenges, including the existence of unknown disputes, liabilities, or contingencies and changes in the industry, location, or regulatory or political environment in which these investments are located, that our due diligence review may not adequately uncover and that may arise after entering into such arrangements.

 

25

 

 

Laws and regulations affecting the medical and adult use marijuana industry are constantly changing, which could detrimentally affect our proposed cultivation and production operations and greenhouse products.

 

Local, state, and federal medical and adult use marijuana laws and regulations are broad in scope and subject to evolving interpretations, which could require us to incur substantial costs associated with compliance or alter certain aspects of our business plan. In addition, violations of these laws, or allegations of such violations, could disrupt certain aspects of our business plan and result in a material adverse effect on certain aspects of our planned operations. In addition, it is possible that regulations may be enacted in the future that will be directly applicable to certain aspects of our proposed cultivation and production businesses, as well as our greenhouse solutions business. We cannot predict the nature of any future laws, regulations, interpretations, or applications, nor can we determine what effect additional governmental regulations or administrative policies and procedures, when and if promulgated, could have on our business.

 

We may not obtain the necessary permits and authorizations to operate our proposed marijuana business.

 

We may not be able to obtain or maintain the necessary licenses, permits, authorizations, or accreditations for our proposed cultivation and production businesses and greenhouse solutions business, or may only be able to do so at great cost. In addition, we may not be able to comply fully with the wide variety of laws and regulations applicable to the medical and adult use marijuana industry. Failure to comply with or to obtain the necessary licenses, permits, authorizations, or accreditations could result in restrictions on our ability to operate the medical and adult use marijuana business, which could have a material adverse effect on our business.

 

If we incur substantial liability from litigation, complaints, or enforcement actions, our financial condition could suffer.

 

Our participation in the medical and adult use marijuana industry may lead to litigation, formal or informal complaints, enforcement actions, and inquiries by various federal, state, or local governmental authorities against us. Litigation, complaints, and enforcement actions could consume considerable amounts of financial and other corporate resources, which could have a negative impact on our sales, revenue, profitability, and growth prospects. We have not been, and are not currently, subject to any material litigation, complaint, or enforcement action regarding marijuana (or otherwise) brought by any federal, state, or local governmental authority. Certain of our operating subsidiaries, may in the future engage in the distribution of marijuana; however, we have not been, and are not currently, subject to any material litigation, complaint, or enforcement action regarding marijuana (or otherwise) brought by any federal, state, or local governmental authority with respect to the business of any our subsidiaries.

 

We may have difficulty accessing the service of banks, which may make it difficult for us to operate.

 

Since the use of marijuana is illegal under federal law, many banks will not except for deposit funds from businesses involved with the marijuana industry. Consequently, businesses involved in the marijuana industry often have difficulty finding a bank willing to accept their business. The inability to open or maintain bank accounts may make it difficult for us to operate our proposed marijuana businesses. If any of our bank accounts are closed, we may have difficulty processing transactions in the ordinary course of business, including paying suppliers, employees and landlords, which could have a significant negative effect on our operations. In March of this year, U.S. Congressman Ed Perlmutter (D – Colorado) introduced house bill H.R. 1595, known as the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act to allow legally operating cannabis related businesses to utilize traditional banking services without fear of federal agencies taking legal action against the banks or their customers. On September 25, 2019, the SAFE bill was passed with strong bipartisan support in the House of Representatives. Many industry observers anticipate that the bill will be signed into law within the next year.

 

26

 

 

Litigation may adversely affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations.

 

From time to time in the normal course of our business operations, we may become subject to litigation that may result in liability material to our financial statements as a whole or may negatively affect our operating results if changes to our business operations are required. The cost to defend such litigation may be significant and may require a diversion of our resources. There also may be adverse publicity associated with litigation that could negatively affect customer perception of our business, regardless of whether the allegations are valid or whether we are ultimately found liable. Insurance may not be available at all or in sufficient amounts to cover any liabilities with respect to these or other matters. A judgment or other liability in excess of our insurance coverage for any claims could adversely affect our business and the results of our operations.

 

Our officers and directors have substantial equity ownership in the Company and substantial control over certain corporate actions.

 

As of December 31, 2021, our officers and directors owned approximately 35% of our outstanding Common Stock and thus exercise substantial control over stockholder matters, such as election of directors, amendments to the Articles of Incorporation, and approval of significant corporate transactions.

 

If we fail to implement and maintain proper and effective internal controls and disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, our ability to produce accurate and timely financial statements and public reports could be impaired, which could adversely affect our operating results, our ability to operate our business, and investors’ views of us.

 

Our internal controls and procedures were not effective to detect the inappropriate application of U.S. GAAP rules. Our internal controls were adversely affected by deficiencies in the design or operation of our internal controls, which management considered to be material weaknesses. These material weaknesses include the following:

 

  lack of a majority of independent members and a lack of a majority of outside directors on our Board, resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures;
     
  inadequate segregation of duties consistent with control objectives;
     
  ineffective controls over period end financial disclosure and reporting processes;
     
  beginning in July of 2019 the Company’s executive management team began convening weekly meetings to review expenditures and provide cash flow analysis, and
     
  the Company intends to add additional external accounting support. On October 1, 2019, the Company established an audit committee which is chaired by Roger Bloss, the Company’s Interim Chief Executive Officer and a Director of the Company and established a compensation committee which is chaired by Paris Balaouras, the Company’s Chief Cultivation Officer and a Director of the Company.

 

The failure to implement and maintain proper and effective internal controls and disclosure controls could result in material weaknesses in our financial reporting, such as errors in our financial statements and in the accompanying footnote disclosures that could require restatements. Investors may lose confidence in our reported financial information and disclosure, which could negatively impact our stock price.

 

We do not expect that our internal controls over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. Over time, controls may become inadequate because changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may occur. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

 

27

 

 

Our insurance coverage may be inadequate to cover all significant risk exposures.

 

We will be exposed to liabilities that are unique to the products we provide. While we intend to maintain insurance for certain risks, the amount of our insurance coverage may not be adequate to cover all claims or liabilities, and we may be forced to bear substantial costs resulting from risks and uncertainties of our business. It is also not possible to obtain insurance to protect against all operational risks and liabilities. In particular, we may have difficulty obtaining insurance because we intend to operate in the marijuana industry. The failure to obtain adequate insurance coverage on terms favorable to us, or at all, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, and results of operations. We do not have any business interruption insurance. Any business disruption or natural disaster could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources.

 

If our products are contaminated, we may have litigation and products liability exposure.

 

We source some of our products from third-party suppliers. Although we are required by Nevada law to test the products we receive from third-party suppliers, we may not identify all contamination in those products. Possible contaminates include pesticides, molds, and fungus. If a customer suffers an injury from our products, they may sue us in addition to the supplier and we may not have adequate insurance to cover any such claims, which could result in a negative effect on our results of operations.

 

Some of our lines of business rely on our third-party service providers to host and deliver services and data, and any interruptions or delays in these hosted services, security or privacy breaches, or failures in data collection could expose us to liability and harm our business and reputation.

 

Some of our lines of business and services rely on services hosted and controlled directly by third-party service providers. We do not have redundancy for all of our systems, many of our critical applications reside in only one of our data centers and our disaster recovery planning may not account for all eventualities. If our business relationship with a third-party provider of hosting or software services is negatively affected, or if one of our service providers were to terminate its agreement with us, we might not be able to deliver access our data, which could subject us to reputational harm and cause us to lose customers and future business, thereby reducing our revenue.

 

We may hold large amounts of customer data, some of which will likely be hosted in third-party facilities. A security incident at those facilities or ours may compromise the confidentiality, integrity or availability of customer data. Unauthorized access to customer data stored on our computers or networks may be obtained through break-ins, breaches of our secure network by an unauthorized party, employee theft or misuse or other misconduct. It is also possible that unauthorized access to customer data may be obtained through inadequate use of security controls by customers. Accounts created with weak passwords could allow cyber-attackers to gain access to customer data. If there were an inadvertent disclosure of customer information, or if a third party were to gain unauthorized access to the information we possess on behalf of our customers, our operations could be disrupted, our reputation could be damaged, and we could be subject to claims or other liabilities. In addition, such perceived or actual unauthorized disclosure of the information we collect, or breach of our security could damage our reputation, result in the loss of customers and harm our business.

 

Because of the data we expect to collect and manage using our hosted solutions, it is possible that hardware or software failures or errors in our systems (or those of our third-party service providers) could result in data loss or corruption, cause the information that we collect to be incomplete or contain inaccuracies that our customers regard as significant or cause us to fail to meet committed service levels. Furthermore, our ability to collect and report data may be delayed or interrupted by a number of factors, including access to the Internet, the failure of our network or software systems or security breaches. In addition, computer viruses or other malware may harm our systems, causing us to lose data, and the transmission of computer viruses or other malware could expose us to litigation. We may also find, on occasion, that we cannot deliver data and reports in near real time because of a number of factors, including failures of our network or software. If we supply inaccurate information or experience interruptions in our ability to capture, store and supply information in near real time or at all, our reputation could be harmed and we could lose customers, or we could be found liable for damages or incur other losses. Moreover, states in which we operate may require that we maintain certain information about our customers and transactions. If we fail to maintain such information, we could be in violation of state laws.

 

Our business operations have been and may continue to be materially and adversely affected by the outbreak of the novel respiratory illness coronavirus (“COVID-19”).

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of the novel respiratory illness COVID-19 a pandemic. The new strain of COVID-19 is considered to be highly contagious and poses a serious public health threat.

 

Any outbreak of such epidemic illness or other adverse public health developments may materially and adversely affect the global economy, our markets and our business. In the first two quarters of 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak has caused disruptions in our grow operations, which have resulted in delays in the shipment of products to certain of our customers and ultimately, a suspension of our operations. A prolonged disruption or any further unforeseen delay in our operations of the growing and delivery process within any of our facilities could continue to result in delays in the shipment of products to our customers, increased costs and reduced revenue.

 

We cannot foresee whether the outbreak of COVID-19 will be effectively contained, nor can we predict the severity and duration of its impact. If the outbreak of COVID-19 is not effectively and timely controlled, our business operations and financial condition may be materially and adversely affected as a result of the deteriorating market outlook for sales, the slowdown in regional and national economic growth, weakened liquidity and financial condition of our customers or other factors that we cannot foresee. Any of these factors and other factors beyond our control could have an adverse effect on the overall business environment, cause uncertainties in the regions where we conduct business, cause our business to suffer in ways that we cannot predict and materially and adversely impact our business, financial condition and results of operations.

We face potential business disruptions and related risks resulting from the recent outbreak of the novel coronavirus, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus, or COVID-19, was reported to have surfaced in Wuhan, China. The COVID-19 outbreak has grown into a global pandemic that has impacted Asia, United States, Europe and other countries throughout the world. Financial markets have been experiencing extreme fluctuations that may cause a contraction in available liquidity globally as important segments of the credit markets react to the development. The pandemic may lead to a decline in business and consumer confidence. The global outbreak of COVID-19 continues to rapidly evolve. As a result, businesses have closed and limits have been placed on travel. The extent to which COVID-19 may impact our business, such as the ultimate geographic spread of the disease, the duration of the outbreak, travel restrictions and social distancing in the United States and other countries, business closures or business disruptions and the effectiveness of actions taken in the United States and other countries to contain and treat the disease.

 

We are monitoring the potential impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, and if COVID-19 continues to spread globally, including in the United States, we may experience disruptions that could severely impact the Company’s grow opportunities along with sales, including:

 

  the pandemic has reduced foot traffic in the stores where our products are sold that remain open, and the global economic impact of the pandemic has reduced consumer demand for our products generally;
     
  the uncertainty that our contractors, suppliers, and other business partners may be prevented from conducting business activities for an unknown period of time;
     
  the impact of social distancing at commercial and retail facilities;
     
  delays in receiving approval from local regulatory authorities in the completion of the Company’s Tiny Home community;
     
  the pandemic has reduced foot traffic in the stores where our products are sold that remain open, and the global economic impact of the pandemic has reduced consumer demand for our products generally; and
     
  the majority of our retail customers have been unable to sell our products in their stores due to government-mandated closures and have temporarily reduced orders for our products;

 

Quarantines, shelter-in-place and similar government orders, or the perception that such orders, shutdowns or other restrictions on the conduct of business operations could occur, related to COVID-19 or other infectious diseases could impact personnel at third-party suppliers in the United States and other countries, or the availability or cost of materials, which would disrupt our supply chain. Any manufacturing supply interruption of materials could adversely affect our ability to conduct ongoing and future research and testing activities.

 

The spread of COVID-19, which has caused a broad impact globally, may materially affect us economically. While the potential economic impact brought by, and the duration of, COVID-19 may be difficult to assess or predict, a widespread pandemic could result in significant disruption of global financial markets, reducing our ability to access capital, which could in the future negatively affect our liquidity. In addition, a recession or market correction resulting from the spread of COVID-19 could materially affect our business and the value of our common stock.

Risks Related to an Investment in Our Securities

 

We expect to experience volatility in the price of our Common Stock, which could negatively affect stockholders’ investments.

 

The trading price of our Common Stock may be highly volatile and could be subject to wide fluctuations in response to various factors, some of which are beyond our control. The stock market in general has experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations that have often been unrelated or disproportionate to the operating performance of companies with securities traded in those markets. Broad market and industry factors may seriously affect the market price of companies’ stock, including ours, regardless of actual operating performance. All of these factors could adversely affect your ability to sell your shares of Common Stock or, if you are able to sell your shares, to sell your shares at a price that you determine to be fair or favorable.

 

Our Common Stock is categorized as “penny stock,” which may make it more difficult for investors to sell their shares of Common Stock due to suitability requirements.

 

Our Common Stock is categorized as “penny stock.” The SEC has adopted Rule 15g-9, which generally defines “penny stock” to be any equity security that has a market price (as defined) less than $5.00 per share or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. The price of our Common Stock is significantly less than $5.00 per share and, therefore, is considered “penny stock.” This designation imposes additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and accredited investors. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer buying our securities to disclose certain information concerning the transaction, obtain a written agreement from the purchaser and determine that the purchaser is reasonably suitable to purchase the securities given the increased risks generally inherent in penny stocks. These rules may restrict the ability and/or willingness of brokers or dealers to buy or sell our Common Stock, either directly or on behalf of their clients, may discourage potential stockholders from purchasing our Common Stock, or may adversely affect the ability of stockholders to sell their shares.

 

Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) sales practice requirements may also limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our Common Stock, which could depress the price of our Common Stock.

 

In addition to the “penny stock” rules described above, FINRA has adopted rules that require a broker-dealer to have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer before recommending an investment to a customer. Prior to recommending speculative low-priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives, and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, FINRA believes that there is a high probability that speculative low-priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. Thus, the FINRA requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that their customers buy our Common Stock, which may limit your ability to buy and sell our shares of Common Stock, have an adverse effect on the market for our shares of Common Stock, and thereby depress our price per share of Common Stock.

 

Our Common Stock may not be eligible for listing or quotation on any national securities exchange.

 

We do not currently meet the initial quantitative listing standards of any national securities exchange. We cannot assure you that we will be able to meet the initial listing standards of any national securities exchange in the future, or, if we do meet such initial listing standards, that we will be able to maintain any such listing. Until our Common Stock is listed on a national securities exchange, which event may never occur, we expect that it will continue to be eligible and quoted on the OTC Markets “Pink” Marketplace. However, investors may find it difficult to obtain accurate quotations as to the market value of our Common Stock. Further, the national securities exchanges are adopting so-called “seasoning” rules that will require that we meet certain requirements, including prescribed periods of time trading over the counter and minimum filings of periodic reports with the SEC, before we are eligible to apply for listing on such national securities exchanges. In addition, if we fail to meet the criteria set forth in SEC regulations, various requirements would be imposed by law on broker-dealers who sell our securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors. Consequently, such regulations may deter broker-dealers from recommending or selling our Common Stock, which may further affect its liquidity. This would also make it more difficult for us to raise additional capital.

The elimination of monetary liability against our directors, officers, and employees under Nevada law and the existence of indemnification rights for our obligations to our directors, officers, and employees may result in substantial expenditures by us and may discourage lawsuits against our directors, officers, and employees.

 

Our Articles of Incorporation contain a provision permitting us to eliminate the personal liability of our directors to us and our stockholders for damages for the breach of a fiduciary duty as a director or officer to the extent provided by Nevada law. We may also have contractual indemnification obligations under any future employment agreements with our officers or agreements entered into with our directors. The foregoing indemnification obligations could result in us incurring substantial expenditures to cover the cost of settlement or damage awards against directors and officers, which we may be unable to recoup. These provisions and the resulting costs may also discourage us from bringing a lawsuit against directors and officers for breaches of their fiduciary duties and may similarly discourage the filing of derivative litigation by our stockholders against our directors and officers even though such actions, if successful, might otherwise benefit us and our stockholders.

 

We may issue additional shares of Common Stock or preferred stock in the future, which could cause significant dilution to all stockholders.

 

Our Articles of Incorporation authorize the issuance of up to 95,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 5,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, with a par value of $0.001 per share. As of December 31, 2021, we had 71,501,667 shares of Common Stock and 0 shares of Preferred Stock, outstanding; however, we may issue additional shares of Common Stock or Preferred Stock in the future in connection with a financing or an acquisition. Such issuances may not require the approval of our stockholders. Any issuance of additional shares of our Common Stock, or equity securities convertible into our Common Stock, including but not limited to, Preferred Stock, warrants, and options, will dilute the percentage ownership interest of all stockholders, may dilute the book value per share of our Common Stock, and may negatively impact the market price of our Common Stock.

 

Anti-takeover effects of certain provisions of Nevada state law hinder a potential takeover of us.

 

Nevada has a business combination law that prohibits certain business combinations between Nevada corporations and “interested stockholders” for three years after an “interested stockholder” first becomes an “interested stockholder,” unless the corporation’s board of directors approves the combination in advance. For purposes of Nevada law, an “interested stockholder” is any person who is (i) the beneficial owner, directly or indirectly, of ten percent or more of the voting power of the outstanding voting shares of the corporation or (ii) an affiliate or associate of the corporation and at any time within the three previous years was the beneficial owner, directly or indirectly, of ten percent or more of the voting power of the then outstanding shares of the corporation. The definition of the term “business combination” is sufficiently broad to cover virtually any kind of transaction that would allow a potential acquirer to use the corporation’s assets to finance the acquisition or otherwise to benefit its own interests rather than the interests of the corporation and its other stockholders.

 

The effect of Nevada’s business combination law is potentially to discourage parties interested in taking control of us from doing so if they cannot obtain the approval of our Board. Both of these provisions could limit the price investors would be willing to pay in the future for shares of our Common Stock.

 

Because we do not intend to pay any cash dividends on our Common Stock, our stockholders will not be able to receive a return on their shares unless they sell them.

 

We intend to retain any future earnings to finance the development and expansion of our business. We do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our Common Stock in the foreseeable future. Declaring and paying future dividends, if any, will be determined by our Board, based upon earnings, financial condition, capital resources, capital requirements, restrictions in our Articles of Incorporation, contractual restrictions, and such other factors as our Board deems relevant. Unless we pay dividends, our stockholders will not be able to receive a return on their shares unless they sell them. There is no assurance that stockholders will be able to sell shares when desired or for prices that they deem acceptable.

Item 2. Properties

 

The Company’s principal office is located at 2580 S. Sorrel St, Las Vegas, NV 89146. In January 2021, the Company sold its commercial office building located at 1300 South Jones Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89146.

 

The Company held a triple net leasehold interest, through its former subsidiary Red Earth LLC (“Red Earth”), in a 17,298 square foot building located at 2310 Western Avenue, Las Vegas, Nevada (the “Western lease”). The lease was for an initial term of 10 years, with a 12-month rent abatement. The commencement date of the lease was June 29, 2017. The lease included two options to extend, each for an additional 5 years. The lease granted the Company an option to purchase the property on or after the 25th month of the lease and continuing through the 60th month of the lease for the sum of $2,607,880. On August 26, 2021, the Company and the Company’s Chief Cultivation Officer and previous owner of Red Earth, Paris Balaouras, entered into a Termination Agreement. Under the terms of the Termination Agreement, the Purchase Agreement, dated December 15, 2017, entered into between the Company and Red Earth was terminated as of the date of the Termination Agreement resulting in the return of ownership of Red Earth to Mr. Balaouras. As such, the Company no longer holds any interest in the Western lease.

 

In August of 2018, the Company executed a letter of intent (“LOI”) for the acquisition of all of the membership units of Farm Road, LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company (“Farm Road”). Farm Road was the owner of five parcels of farmland in the Amargosa Valley of Nevada totaling 260 acres and the concomitant 180 acre-feet of water rights. Pursuant to the terms of a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (“MIPA”) executed between the Company and Farm Road in November of 2018, the Company was to acquire Farm Road for $1,000,000 on the following terms: a deposit of $50,000 in cash and $50,000 of the Company’s restricted common stock upon execution of the LOI, to be held in escrow until closing, $150,000 in cash payable at closing and a promissory note bearing 5% simple annual interest (the “Promissory Note”) in the amount of $750,000 payable to FR Holdings, LLC (an unrelated third party) (“FRH”) in 36 equal monthly interest only payments of three thousand one hundred twenty five ($3,125) dollars commencing on the March 1, 2019. On January 18, 2019, pursuant to the terms the MIPA, the Company acquired a 100% interest in Farm Road. The terms of the Promissory Note include a balloon payment to be made on January 17, 2022 of any then remaining principal balance and accrued interest. The MIPA further provided that FRH shall be entitled to receive a consulting fee of five per cent (5%) of the gross sales from any commercial use of the property up to a maximum of five hundred thousand ($500,000) dollars payable to FRH within two years of the January 18, 2019 closing date. Please see Note 19 — Subsequent Events for further information.

 

Effective August 1, 2019, the Company entered into an agreement to lease an approximately 17,000 sq. ft. commercial building in Pahrump, NV. The lease is for a term of ten years at an initial monthly rent of $10,000 per month with rent increases each August 1st during the term of the lease equal to the Consumer Price Index of the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor for CPI W (Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers) for Las Vegas, Nevada. The Company paid the property owner a security deposit in the amount of $20,000. While the Company took possession of the premises on August 1, 2019, the monthly rent commenced on October 1, 2019. The Company has an option, exercisable between July 1, 2020 and July 1, 2024, to purchase the property for $1,800,000. The leasehold has previously been utilized as a fully licensed State of Nevada marijuana cultivation facility. On November 29, 2019, the building suffered significant damage after a windstorm swept through the town of Pahrump. The storm caused structural damage as well as damage to the plumbing and electrical supply to the building, making the facility unusable. Pursuant to the terms of the lease, the inability to occupy and utilize the facility relieves us of any obligation to pay rent. As of the date of this filing, repairs to the building have not yet commenced. It was the Company’s intention to move its marijuana processing into this facility upon receipt of all required regulatory approvals. The Company has no intention to occupy the leased space.

 

Item 3. Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time, the Company may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business. When the Company is aware of a claim or potential claim, it assesses the likelihood of any loss or exposure. If it is probable that a loss will result and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated, the Company will record a liability for the loss. In addition to the estimated loss, the liability includes probable and estimable legal cost associated with the claim or potential claim. Litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm the Company business.

 

MJ Holdings, Inc. Complaint

 

On December 14, 2021, MJ Holdings, Inc. (the “Plaintiff”) filed a Complaint against NCMM, LLC, AP Management, LLC and Valerie Small (collectively, the “Defendants”). In the Complaint, the Plaintiff alleges that the Defendants have refused to return the cannabis that was being stored for Plaintiff under a Storage and Purchase Agreement entered into with AP Management. By failing to return the cannabis to Plaintiff, or Plaintiff’s designee, the Defendants have deprived Plaintiff of the ability to sell, transfer or market the product. In addition, the Defendants have sought to unlawfully extort the Plaintiff for illicit payments of thousands of dollars in money and/or cannabis in exchange for returning the cannabis. As of the date of this filing, pleadings are pending.

 

Gappy and Shaba Compliant

 

On December 3, 2021, a Complaint was filed against MJ Holdings, Inc., HDGLV, LLC, Red Earth, LLC (collectively, the “Defendants”) by Ziad Gappy and David Shaba (collectively, the “Plaintiffs”). In the Complaint, the Plaintiffs allege the Defendants made misleading statements and/or omissions relating to the Company in the Plaintiffs’ negotiation to purchase shares of MJ Holdings, Inc. In addition, the Plaintiffs allege that the Defendants have not honored the 2018 Agreements negotiated between the Plaintiffs and Defendants, MJ Holdings, Inc. has failed to issue an additional $125,000 in stock due to the Plaintiffs as was agreed to in writing and the Defendants have failed to start the Western Project. The Defendants will vigorously defend themselves against this action and will file an appropriate and timely answer to the Complaint including a lengthy and comprehensive series of affirmative defenses and liability and damage avoidances. As of the date of this filing, the Defendants have yet to file an answer.

 

DGMD Complaint

 

On March 19, 2021, a Complaint was filed against the Company, Jim Mueller, John Mueller, MachNV, LLC, Acres Cultivation, Paris Balaouras, Dimitri Deslis, ATG Holdings, LLC and Curaleaf, Inc. (collectively, the “Defendants”) by DGMD Real Estate Investments, LLC, ARMPRO, LLC, Zhang Springs LV, LLC, Prodigy Holdings, LLC and Green Organics, LLC (collectively, the “Plaintiffs”) in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada.

 

In the Complaint, the Plaintiffs allege that the Defendants: (i) intended to fraudulently obtain money from the Plaintiffs in order to put that money towards the Acres dispensary and to make Acres look more appealing to potential buyers as well as pay off Defendants’ agents, and (ii) the Defendants acted together in order to find investors to invest money into the Acres and MJ Holdings “Investment Schemes”, and (iii) the Defendants intended to fraudulently obtain Plaintiffs’ money for the purpose of harming the Plaintiffs to benefit the Defendants, and (iv) the Defendants committed unlawful fraudulent misrepresentation in the furtherance of the agreement to defraud the Plaintiffs. The Plaintiffs allege that damages are in excess of $15,000.

 

As the complaint pleads only the statutory minimum of damages, the Company is unable to estimate the potential exposure, if any, resulting from this matter but believes it is without merit as to liability and otherwise deminimis as to damages. Thus, the Company does not expect this matter to have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position or its results of operations. The Company will vigorously defend itself against this action and has filed an appropriate and timely answer to the Complaint including a lengthy and comprehensive series of affirmative defenses and liability and damage avoidances. As of the date of this filing, discovery has commenced and written discovery has been exchanged between the parties.

 

Tierney Arbitration

 

On March 9, 2021, Terrence Tierney, the Company’s former President and Secretary, filed for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association for: (i) breach of contract, (i) breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and (iii) NRS 608 wage claim. Mr. Tierney demanded payment in the amount of $501,085 for deferred business compensation, expenses paid on behalf of the Company, accrued vacation and severance pay. On April 7, 2021, the Company made payment against the wage claim in the amount of $62,392, inclusive of $59,583 for wages and $2,854 for accrued vacation and, as such posits that any claims that Tierney may have had have been paid in full and that the Company otherwise has no liability. The Company filed a counterclaim in the action declaring that Tierney breached the contract of employment, committed fraud, malfeasance and other nefarious acts causing substantial damage to the Company with estimated monetary damages well in excess of any monetary claim made by Tierney. After recent arbitrator rulings favorable to the Company, the parties have agreed to postpone the June arbitration and have referred the matter to mediation.

Company Background

 

MJ Holdings, Inc. (OTCPK: MJNE) is a highly-diversified holding company providing cultivation management, asset and infrastructure development – currently concentrated in the Las Vegas market. It is the Company’s intention to grow its business and provide a 360-degree spectrum of infrastructure, including, cannabis cultivation, production of cannabis related products, management services, dispensaries and consulting services. The Company intends to grow its business through joint ventures with existing companies possessing complementary subject matter expertise, acquisition of existing companies and through the development of new opportunities. The Company intends to “prove the concept” profitably in the rapidly expanding Las Vegas market and then use that anticipated success as a template for replicating the concept in other developing states through a combination of strategic partnerships, acquisitions and opening new operations.

 

 

The Company was incorporated on November 17, 2006, as Securitas EDGAR Filings, Inc. under the laws of the State of Nevada. Prior to the formation of Securitas EDGAR Filings Inc., the business was operated as Xpedient EDGAR Filings, LLC, a Florida Limited Liability Company, formed on October 31, 2005. On November 21, 2005, Xpedient EDGAR Filings LLC amended its Articles of Organization to change its name to Securitas EDGAR Filings, LLC. On January 21, 2009, Securitas EDGAR Filings LLC merged into Securitas EDGAR Filings, Inc., a Nevada corporation. On February 14, 2014, the Company amended and restated its Articles of Incorporation and changed its name to MJ Holdings, Inc.

 

On November 22, 2016, in connection with a plan to divest the Company of its real estate business, the Company submitted to its stockholders an offer to exchange (the “Exchange Offer”) its common stock for shares in MJ Real Estate Partners, LLC, (“MJRE”) a newly-formed LLC formed for the sole purpose of effecting the Exchange Offer. On January 10, 2017, the Company accepted for exchange 1,800,000 shares of its Common Stock in exchange for 1,800,000 shares of MJRE’s common units, representing membership interests in MJRE. Effective February 1, 2017, the Company transferred its ownership interests in the real estate properties and its subsidiaries, through which the Company held ownership of the real estate properties, to MJRE. MJRE also assumed the senior notes and any and all obligations associated with the real estate properties and business, effective February 1, 2017.

 

Operational highlights:

 

  a three-acre, hybrid, outdoor, marijuana-cultivation facility (the “Cultivation Facility”) located in the Amargosa Valley of Nevada. The Company had the contractual right to manage and cultivate marijuana on this property until 2026, for which it would have received sixty percent (60%) of the net revenues realized from its management of this facility and twenty-five percent (25%) of the net revenues from equipment rental. The licensed facility is owned by Acres Cultivation, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. On January 21, 2021, the Company received a Notice of Termination, effective immediately, from Acres Cultivation, LLC. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company relocated all of its equipment utilized on the Acres lease to its 260 Acres adjacent to the Acres lease. The Company will not generate any further revenue under the Acres relationship.

 

  260 acres of farmland for the purpose of cultivating additional marijuana (the “260 Acres”) purchased in January of 2019. The Company intends to utilize the state-of-the-art Cravo® cultivation system for growing an additional five acres of marijuana on this property. The Cravo® system will allow multiple harvests per year and should result in higher annual yields per acre. The land has more than 180-acre feet of permitted water rights, which will provide more than sufficient water to markedly increase the Company’s marijuana cultivation capabilities. This facility, upon receipt of its business license in Nye County and its final inspection by the Cannabis Compliance Board (“CCB”), is expected to become operational in the summer of 2022. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company elected to relocate all of its equipment utilized on the Acres lease to its 260 Acres adjacent to the Acres lease. The Company will utilize the 260 Acres for its own harvest along with additional harvests under any Cultivation and Sales Agreements.
     
  Cultivation and Sales Agreements entered into for multiple grows on the Company’s 260 Acres located in the Amargosa Valley of Nevada. During the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company entered into separate Cultivation and Sales Agreements, whereby the Company shall retain certain independent growers to provide oversight and management of the Company’s cultivation and sale of products at its 260 Acres. The independent growers shall pay to the Company a royalty of net sales revenue with a minimum royalty after two years. As of the date of this filing, the Company is waiting on its business license in Nye County and its final inspection by the Cannabis Compliance Board before it can commence its operations under the Agreement.

 

  a nearby commercial trailer and RV park (THC Park – Tiny Home Community) was purchased in April of 2019 to supply necessary housing for the Company’s farm employees. After the Company’s 2018 harvest, it came to realize that it would need to find a more efficient method of housing and to bring its cultivation team to its facilities. The Company purchased the 50-acre plus THC Park for $600,000 in cash and $50,000 of the Company’s restricted common stock. At present, the Company’s construction and completion of this community is approximately seventy-five present complete. The impact of COVID-19 in obtaining inspections and permitting has significantly delayed the completion of this community. The Company has elected to cease any renovations or additions at its Tiny Home Community until it plants its first grow on the 260 Acres and can better evaluate the need for additional housing.

  indoor cultivation facility build-out in the City of Las Vegas (the “Indoor Facility”). Through its former subsidiary, Red Earth, LLC (“Red Earth”), the Company held a Medical Marijuana Establishment Registration Certificate, Application No. C012. In August of 2019, the Company entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Element NV, LLC (“Element”), to sell a 49% interest in the license. Under the terms of the Agreement, Element was required to invest more than $3,500,000 into this Indoor Facility. Element paid the monthly rent on the facility from December 2019 through March 2020 but failed to make any additional payments. On June 11, 2020, the Company entered into the First Amendment (“First Amendment”) to the Agreement. Under the terms of the First Amendment, the Closing Purchase Price was adjusted to $441,000, and Element was required to make a capital contribution (the “Initial Contribution Payment”) to the Target Company in the amount of $120,000 and was required to make an additional cash contribution (the Final Contribution Payment”) in the amount of $240,000. The Company terminated its discussions with Element regarding its past due payments. On or about May 7, 2021, Red Earth, received an inquiry from the State of Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board (“CCB”) regarding the transfer of ownership of the Subsidiary from its previous owners to the Company. The CCB has determined that the transfer was not formally approved, thus a Category II violation. On July 27, 2021, Red Earth entered into a Stipulation and Order for Settlement of Disciplinary Action (the “Stipulation Order”) with the CCB. Under the terms of the Stipulation Order, Red Earth agreed to present to the CCB, by not later than August 31, 2021, a plan pursuant to which the ownership of Red Earth will be returned to the original owners. The Parties to the Stipulation Order resolved the matter without the necessity of taking formal action. Red Earth agreed to pay a civil penalty of $10,000, which was paid on July 29, 2021. On August 26, 2021, the Company and the Company’s Chief Cultivation Officer and previous owner of Red Earth, Paris Balaouras, entered into a Termination Agreement. Under the terms of the Termination Agreement, the Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), dated December 15, 2017, entered into between the Company and Red Earth was terminated as of the date of the Termination Agreement resulting in the return of ownership of Red Earth to Mr. Balaouras. Neither party shall have any further obligation to one another pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement.

 

The Company may also continue to seek to identify potential acquisitions of revenue producing assets and licenses within legalized cannabis markets that can maximize shareholder value.

 

The Company may face substantial competition in the operation of cultivation facilities in Nevada. Numerous other companies have also been granted cultivation licenses, and, therefore, the Company anticipates that it will face competition from these other companies. The Company’s management team has experience in successfully developing, implementing, and operating marijuana cultivation and related businesses in other legal cannabis markets. The Company believes its experience in outdoor cultivation provides it with a distinct competitive advantage over its competitors and it will continue to focus on this area of its operations.

Acquisition of Red Earth

 

On December 15, 2017, the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of Red Earth, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“Red Earth”) established in October 2016, in exchange for 52,732,969 shares of its Common Stock and a promissory note in the amount of $900,000. The acquisition was accounted for as a “Reverse Merger”, whereby Red Earth was considered the accounting acquirer and became its wholly owned subsidiary. Upon the consummation of the acquisition, the now former members of Red Earth became the beneficial owners of approximately 88% of the Company’s Common Stock, obtained controlling interest of the Company, and retained certain of its key management positions. In accordance with the accounting treatment for a “reverse merger” or a “reverse acquisition”, the Company’s historical financial statements prior to the reverse merger will be replaced with the historical financial statements of Red Earth prior to the reverse merger in all future filings with the SEC. Red Earth is the holder of a Nevada Marijuana Establishment Certificate for the cultivation of marijuana.

 

On or about May 7, 2021, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Red Earth, LLC (the “Subsidiary”), received an inquiry from the State of Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board (“CCB”) regarding the transfer of ownership of the Subsidiary from its previous owners to the Company. The CCB has determined that the transfer was not formally approved, thus a Category II violation.

 

The consolidated financial statements after completion of the reverse merger included: the assets, liabilities, and results of operations of the combined company from and after the closing date of the reverse merger, with only certain aspects of pre-consummation stockholders’ equity remaining in the consolidated financial statements. In February of 2019, the Company repurchased, from the Company’s largest shareholder, 20,000,000 of the 26,366,484 shares of common stock that this shareholder originally received in connection with the Reverse Merger - for a total purchase price of $20,000.

 

On July 27, 2021, the Subsidiary entered into a Stipulation and Order for Settlement of Disciplinary Action (the “Stipulation Order”) with the CCB. Under the terms of the Stipulation Order, the Subsidiary has agreed to present to the CCB, by not later than August 31, 2021, a plan pursuant to which the ownership of the Subsidiary will be returned to the original owners. The Parties to the Stipulation Order resolved the matter without the necessity of taking formal action. The Subsidiary agreed to pay a civil penalty of $10,000, which was paid on July 29, 2021.

 

On August 1, 2021, the Company entered into a Memorandum of Understanding and Agreement for Technical Services and Short-Term Funding (the “Agreement”) with Red Earth, LLC (hereinafter, “Red Earth”), an entity controlled by its Chief Cultivation Officer, Paris Balaouras. Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company will provide a short-term loan (the “Loan”) to Red Earth for expenses related to the activation and operation of Red Earth’s cultivation license. The Loan shall bear interest at 12% per annum and increase to 18% upon default. In addition, the Company shall provide Red Earth pre-opening technical services at a cost of $5,000 to $7,500 per month. As of December 31, 2021, the amount due the Company under the short-term loan is $40,165.

 

On August 26, 2021, the Company and the Company’s Chief Cultivation Officer and previous owner of Red Earth, Paris Balaouras, entered into a Termination Agreement. Under the terms of the Termination Agreement, the Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), dated December 15, 2017, entered into between the Company and Red Earth was terminated as of the date of the Termination Agreement resulting in the return of ownership of Red Earth to Mr. Balaouras. Neither party shall have any further obligation to one another pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement.

Critical Accounting Policies, Judgments and Estimates

 

The Company’s discussion and analysis of its financial condition and results of operations is based upon its consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires the Company to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and the related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that it believes are reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

An accounting policy is considered to be critical if it requires an accounting estimate to be made based on assumptions about matters that are highly uncertain at the time the estimate is made, and if different estimates that reasonably could have been used, or changes in the accounting estimate that are reasonably likely to occur, could materially impact the consolidated financial statements. The Company believes that the following critical accounting policies reflect the more significant estimates and assumptions used in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606 – Revenue from Contracts with Customers using the modified retrospective method. Since the Company had not previously recognized any revenue there was no impact upon adoption of ASC 606 on its consolidated financial statements. The new revenue standard was applied prospectively in the Company’s consolidated financial statements from January 1, 2018 forward and reported financial information for historical comparable periods will not be revised and will continue to be reported under the accounting standards in effect during those historical periods. Revenues are recognized when control of the promised goods or performance obligations for services is transferred to the Company’s customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for the goods or services.

 

37

 

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carry forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance on deferred tax assets is established when management considers it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

Tax benefits from an uncertain tax position are only recognized if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position are measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than fifty percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate resolution. Interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits are recorded as incurred as a component of income tax expense. The Company has not recognized any tax benefits from uncertain tax positions for any of the reporting periods presented.

 

Results of Operations for the Years Ended December 31, 2021 and 2020

 

The Company’s historical financial statements prior to the reverse merger were replaced with the historical financial statements of Red Earth, the “accounting acquirer,” based on the accounting treatment for reverse merger transactions.

In January of 2019, the Company entered into a revised agreement, which replaced the April 2018 agreement, with the Licensed Operator in order to be more stringently aligned with Nevada marijuana laws. The material terms of the agreement remain unchanged. The Licensed Operator is contractually obligated to pay over to the Company eighty-five (85%) percent of gross revenues defined as gross proceeds from sales of marijuana products minus applicable state excise taxes and local sales tax. The agreement is to remain in force until April 2026. In April 2019, the Licensed Operator was acquired by Curaleaf Holdings, Inc., a publicly traded Canadian cannabis company. On January 21, 2021, the Company received a Notice of Termination, effective immediately, from Acres Cultivation, LLC. The Company does not anticipate that it will generate any further revenue under the Acres relationship.

None.

 

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Company’s reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Company’s reports filed under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including its Chief Executive Officer and its Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. The Company carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Securities Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of December 31, 2021. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and its Chief Financial Officer concluded that its disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 31, 2021.

 

Evaluation of Internal Controls and Procedures

 

The Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as such term is defined by Securities Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f). Its internal controls are designed to provide reasonable assurance as to the reliability of its financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

Internal control over financial reporting has inherent limitations and may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Further, because of changes in conditions, the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting may vary over time.

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of its Chief Executive Officer and its Chief Financial Officer, the Company has evaluated the effectiveness of its internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2021, as required by Securities Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(c). In making its assessment, the Company has utilized the criteria set forth by the 2013 Internal Control Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. The Company concluded that based on its evaluation, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of December 31, 2021.

In connection with the preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021, due to resource constraints, material weaknesses became evident to management regarding its inability to generate all the necessary disclosures for inclusion in its filings with the Securities and Exchanges Commission due to the lack of resources and segregation of duties. The Company lacked sufficient personnel with the appropriate level of knowledge, experience and training in GAAP to meet the demands for a public company, including the accounting skills and understanding necessary to fulfill the requirements of GAAP-based reporting. This weakness causes it to not fully identify and resolve accounting and disclosure issues that could lead to a failure to perform timely internal control and reviews. In addition, the Company does not have any independent outside director on the Company’s Board of Directors and lacks documentation of its internal control processes. The Company intends to add additional external accounting support. During 2019, the Company established an audit committee and compensation committee. Beginning in July of 2019, the Company’s executive management team began convening weekly meetings to review expenditures and provide cash flow analysis.

 

The Company is neither an accelerated filer nor a large-accelerated filer, as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act, and there is not otherwise included in this Annual Report an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not required to be attested by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to Item 308(b) of Regulation S-K.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2021, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, its internal control over financial reporting. During 2022, as its business operations expand, the Company plans to hire additional employees and engage outside professionals to address the material weaknesses identified above.

 

Item 9B. Other Information.

 

None.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of MJ Holdings, Inc.:

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of MJ Holdings, Inc. (“the Company”) as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2021 and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2021, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Explanatory Paragraph Regarding Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 3 to the financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a net capital deficiency that raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 3. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (“PCAOB”) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Critical Audit Matters

 

Critical audit matters are matters arising from the current period audit of the financial statements that were communicated or required to be communicated to the audit committee and that (1) relate to accounts or disclosures that are material to the financial statements and (2) involved our especially challenging, subjective, or complex judgments. We determined that there were no critical audit matters.

 

/s/ Sadler, Gibb & Associates, LLC

 

We have served as the Company’s auditor since 2019.
