Wall St. Journal:  “Zoned Properties, Inc. . . . a lessor of land, facilities, and equipment to the medical marijuana market in Arizona announces that it has closed on all of the real estate associated with the approved site for a medical marijuana dispensary located in Gilbert, Arizona for $1.115 million. The Town of Gilbert has already granted a conditional use permit and approved the design of the property, which is properly zoned for a medical marijuana dispensary.”

A search of deeds filed with the Maricopa County Recorder shows a Warranty Deed and affidavit of property value for a parcel of vacant land acquired by Zoned Properties, Inc., on January 30, 2014, for $300,000.  The property is located at 988 South 182nd Place, Gilbert, Arizona.

Query:  Why does Zoned Properties, Inc., say it purchased the Gilbert property for $1.115 million when the affidavit of property value states the purchase price was $300,000?

Zoned Properties, Inc., a Nevada corporation, lists its headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, but it is not a corporation formed in Arizona or licensed to do business in Arizona. Zoned Properties, Inc., is violating Arizona Revised Statutes Section 10-1501.A, which states “A foreign corporation shall not transact business in this state until it is granted authority to transact business in this state.”

The corporation was formerly named “Vanguard Minerals Corp” until 10-2013, “knewtrino, Inc.” until 10-2007 and “Mongolian Explorations Ltd.” until 5-2006.  See its financial statement for the nine month period ending September 30, 2013.

Zoned Properties, Inc., appears to be a publicly traded company.  Marc J. Brannigan is the President & CEO and Charles Randall is the COO.
