The announcement can be found on Bloomberg BusinessWeek:

Today the Company made public its efforts to expand into Colorado.
In June this year, Management participated in the first annual Weed Stock Conference in Denver, Colorado.
At the Weed Stock Conference, the Company engaged a number of local parties in early negotiations to establish hemp and marijuana farms in Colorado. The Company is also exploring retail and wholesale operation pilots in addition to possible cannabis tourism projects.

About Algae International Group, Inc. and The American Seed & Oil Company, Inc.
(OTC: ALGA) Algae International Group, Inc. first became interested in the cannabis opportunity last year while attempting to build a business to produce bio diesel from cold pressed algae oil. While the ‘promise’ of the cannabis market is great, the path to achieving the ‘promise’ is unclear. An incubator improves the odds of success in an early and rapidly evolving market by building multiple, complimentary businesses with an initial strategy to explore market opportunity rather than to attempt seizing market opportunity prematurely. Accordingly, the Company is starting with three incubated subsidiaries, and will continue to explore the introduction of additional complimentary subsidiaries. As subsidiaries develop to a viable stage of independence, the Company will spinoff such subsidiaries creating independent ROI opportunities for parent shareholders.
