PHOENIX – 4Front Ventures Corp., a vertically integrated, multi-state cannabis operator and retailer, withdrew the brokered offering announced on June 26. This strategic decision comes after a comprehensive review of current market conditions, including recent controversies regarding the federal regulatory outlook.

The Company also appointed current Company director Kris Krane Chair of the Board in place of Robert Hunt, who is departing the Board. Mr. Krane has extensive experience in the cannabis industry, having previously served as the Company’s President and played a key role in its growth and development. As a regulatory and business strategist, as well as a frequent speaker at cannabis conferences and events around the world, Mr. Krane has spent the last two decades working to advance the cannabis industry and movement. He has served as Associate Director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (“NORML”) and Executive Director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, and is Chair Emeritus of the National Cannabis Industry Association Board of Directors. An Illinois resident, Krane’s deep industry knowledge and local presence align with 4Front’s strategic focus on growth in that state.


Mr. Hunt’s departure is not in connection with any known disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies, or practices, including accounting principles and practices.
