Terra Tech Corp (OTCMKTS:TRTC) is sitting just over 52-week lows of $0.21 on decent trading volume. TRTC began its days as a stock promotion and was covered by every newsletter in the book in the early days. At some point however the stock got caught up in the pot boom and took on a life of its own making a spectacular run to $1.42.
There are plenty of reasons why 2015 could be big for pot stock; The major catalyst are expected to be the rescheduling of marijuana out of its current Schedule I classification. In October U.S District Judge Kimberly Mueller heard testimonies during a five day evidentiary hearing aimed at determining if the Schedule I dangerous drug is unconstitutional.
The ruling is expected to come sometime later this year and many expect to see a domino effect for the entire pot sector culminating in treasury issuing rules and regulations for working with marijuana businesses. Once they are able to use banks the entire business is expected to really take off.
According to a recent report from MMJ Business Daily, 2015 is expected not only to see more investment dollars flow into the market but it could even outpace the growth rate seen in 2014. States like Nevada, Illinois, Massachusetts, Oregon, and Alaska have all been identified as industry drivers this year. Furthermore, the rise in “big money” from some major investment funds has just started to hit the sector.
Terra Tech Corp (OTCMKTS:TRTC) manufactures state-of-the-art growhouse equipment that is now sold word-wide through its subsidiary GrowOpTechnology Ltd. Through its own growing facilities and its alliance with hydroponic farmers the Company sells its Edible Garden produce to supermarkets such as Demoulas and Shoprite supermarket in states such as New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.
The Company was initially incorporated as Private Secretary, Inc. on July 22, 2008 in the State of Nevada. The Company planned to develop a software program that would allow for automatic call processing through VoIP technology. On January 27, 2012, the Company filed an amendment to its Articles of Incorporation changing its name to Terra Tech Corp and a new pot stock was born.
The Company is run by Derek Peterson a former Vice President at Morgan Stanley. He left Wall Street because he saw a huge opportunity in medical marijuana. His vision is setting up growing facilities in various states to grow herbs such as basil and thyme with plans to switch to Marijuana production as state laws permit.
According to online sources Derek Peterson and his wife Amy Almsteier were charged with accepting illegally issued securities and selling these shares. This followed Petersons filing for personal bankruptcy.
As Derek Peterson recently remarked ”I am happy to slow down growing thyme and oregano,” if the policy world tilts towards marijuana legalization.”

This allows the company’s executive team to transparently operate in the medical cannabis market.

Currently trading at a $47 million market valuation TRTC does have $3.5 million in the treasury and is already doing millions in revenues and if the Company is able to fill their significant facilities with growing Cannabis as planned sales could really jump. That however is a long way off and for now TRTC continues to lose money and cover that loss with paper which is not a good combination at all. TRTC is lucky to be at the forefront of one of the fastest growing sectors to come around in a long time, what they do with this opportunity remains to be seen.
