Boulder, Colorado, Jan. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Surna Inc. (OTCQB: SRNA) announced today that it recently signed a sales contract valued at $3.2 million.
The project in Arizona is for an approximately 53,000 square feet facility.

Statement about Cannabis Markets
The use, possession, cultivation, and distribution of marijuana is prohibited by U.S. federal law for medical and recreational purposes. Although certain states have legalized medical and recreational cannabis, companies and individuals involved in the sector are still at risk of being prosecuted by federal authorities. Further, the landscape in the cannabis industry changes rapidly. This means that at any time the city, county, or state where cannabis is permitted can change the current laws and/or the federal government can supersede those laws and take prosecutorial action. Given the uncertain legal nature of the cannabis industry, it is imperative that investors understand that investments in the cannabis industry should be considered very high risk. A change in the current laws or enforcement policy can negatively affect the status and operation of our business, require additional fees, stricter operational guidelines and unanticipated shut-downs.
