SAN DIEGO, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that it has garnered news coverage in a top 30 U.S. market newspaper, Voice of San Diego.
A March 12, 2018, article on the Voice of San Diego website entitled "California Cannabis Finds a Market in Mexico" features interviews with both Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus and subsidiary HempMeds® Mexico's President of Latin America Raul Elizalde. The article outlines how HempMeds® Mexico became the only company from which residents in Mexico can get legal permits to import cannabidiol (CBD) products with a doctor's prescription.
In the article, Dr. Titus is quoted saying: "Prior to our intervention, [Mexican President Enrique] Peña Nieto was against all cannabis products, but he was open to a debate. Raul [Elizalde] has been able to change the way the president thinks about cannabis."
"It was my pleasure to be interviewed by this publication and I hope that this helps spread awareness of all the great work our subsidiary HempMeds Mexico is currently doing," Titus said. "We want to help expand global access to CBD and end the stigma about cannabis through education."
