Terra Tech Corp (OTCMKTS:TRTC) has announced that its CEO Derek Peterson was recently interviewed by SmallCapVoice.com, in which he provided an industry and company update. The audio interview has been made available on the company website. In his interview, Mr. Peterson discussed the recent election, cabinet appointments and the outlook of the company. He also discussed the state of the cannabis industry and the legalization in Nevada and California.

Separately, the CEO voiced his belief that the incoming government would respect the rights of states to make autonomous decisions, thereby allowing the cannabis industry to thrive. He also pointed out that the president-elect has already claimed that cannabis regulations would be decided on a state-by-state basis, which also indicate that he is aware of the economic benefits the industry has to offer.

Mr. Peterson also stated that a significant amount of tax revenues are being generated, through the industry, since approximately half of the US states have legalized marijuana for medical or recreational use. He also dismissed the beliefs that the new administration might not favor state-level legalization, by claiming that the overwhelming response in favor of marijuana legalization, observed on election day, would make lawmakers reluctant to stifle the new industry.

Terra Tech has also been gaining a lot of attention from analysts of the cannabis industry, which can be seen by the fact that its CEO was recently appointed to the Q&A panel of the Arcview Investor Forum, held in Las Vegas. The event was held on November 15, 2016 and is aimed at helping new and upcoming cannabis companies, network and collaborate with investors. The Arcview Angel Network, which organizes the forum, has over 550 accredited investors and has so far helped over 133 cannabis companies, in raising funds. The event is held on a quarterly basis and is comprised of in-person pitch, which are analyzed by the panel. Mr. Peterson’s inclusion hints that TRTC is being widely viewed as a successful company in the industry.

Terra Tech Corp (OTCMKTS:TRTC) closed at a share price of $0.292, at the end of the November 23 trading session, 10% higher than the day before.
