TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wayland Group (CSE:WAYL) (FRANKFURT: 75M) (OTCQB:MRRCF) (“Wayland” or the “Company) is pleased to announce that the Company will open its first retail location in Zurich, Switzerland in 2019 - serving the market with high quality cannabis products that contain a maximum THC content of 1 percent.

said Ben Ward, CEO of Wayland Group Corp.
We’re committed to bringing an elevated shopping experience to the cannabis category, and we’re excited that experience will start in Zurich
The retail location will encompass an enhanced experience center where people will be able to sample and test different strains and devices.
