“This is a very exciting time at AMA,” Master Grower Tim Spencer said in the press release. “We have made small adjustments to the design that should result in complete climate control and considerable efficiencies in production.

Namaste Technologies Inc. (TSXV:N) (OTCQB:NXTTF)

Namaste Technologies is among the top marijuana penny stocks that have lost the most in the correction. The company’s stock correction actually started long before the market took a turn.

Two days ago, Namaste announced the firing of its CEO, Sean Dollinger. His termination followed an investigation by a special committee of the Board of Directors of Namaste. The company also announced this morning that Dollinger is taking legal action against the company regarding his termination and the matter will now go before the Ontario Supreme Court of Justice Commercial List.

There is a lot of movement going on with Namaste Technologies and investors aren’t impressed. The marijuana penny stock has fallen nearly -20% since the incident. According to Yahoo Finance, N stock is trading at $1.12 a share on the TSXV, down -$0.07 (-5.88%).
