DENVER–Schwazze, (OTCQX: SHWZ), announced signed definitive documents to acquire the assets of BG3 Investments, LLC dba Drift which consists of two cannabis retail stores located in Boulder, Colorado. This purchase continues Schwazze’s expansion and growth plans in Colorado adding to the Company’s current dispensary footprint, with nine dispensaries acquired year to date, bringing the total number of dispensaries to nineteen.
