On March 22, Namaste announced it has entered into a LOI to acquire 100% of CannMart, a late stage ACMPR applicant in Canada. Just keep in mind that MOUs and LOIs are synonymous and are typically non-binding. MOU = LOI Shares of Namaste have increased by more than 300% since first referenced in this article just a few months ago. This is the CANNAINVESTOR Advantage.
