But the stock is now probing extremely important longer-term support at its post-IPO lows registered in December of last year, and may be worth watching a bit more closely over coming days. To make matters more interesting, the company just announced the appointment of Rhonda Kratz as General Manager in the State of Florida, as well as an incremental operational update and the departure of its Chief Marketing Officer.

Acreage tentatively plans to construct a 100,000 square foot greenhouse on the property.”
