(CSE: CURA) (OTCQX: CURLF) ("Curaleaf" or "the Company"), the leading vertically integrated cannabis operator in the United States, responded yesterday to a letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") informing FDA that the Company has addressed the issues that were raised in the letter regarding its CBD product marketing.
