SAN DIEGO, June 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) (the "Company"), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world's first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands and supply chain, announced today that Raul Elizalde, co-CEO of its subsidiary HempMeds®, has been invited to speak on Endeavor's expert digital panel, "Cannabis in Mexico: The Debate and Opportunities for an Emerging Industry," on June 24, at 5 p.m. CT.
"Raul pioneered the cannabis industry in Mexico and played an integral role in helping us find a pathway to legally selling CBD in several Latin American countries," said Dr. Stuart Titus, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc. "We stand behind him in his legislative advocacy efforts and believe that he will add great value to this event."
Elizalde will join a panel of cannabis experts to discuss the legislative process required to legalize cannabis in Mexico, the agricultural and business opportunities the industry could bring to the country's economy, and the potential economic and social transformation that may follow. If legislation is passed, Mexico is poised to become the most populous market with legal marijuana and hemp.
"We understand that the federal legalization of cannabis is unknown territory for Mexico and we hope to shed light on the many ways that expanding access throughout the country could help many citizens while bringing new opportunities to our economy in the process," said Raul Elizalde, co-CEO of HempMeds®.
While serving as President of HempMeds® Mexico and Latin American operations, Elizalde grew the Company's presence and sales significantly throughout Latin America, especially in Mexico. Recently, he was promoted to co-CEO of HempMeds®, leading operations in the U.S. and around the world with co-CEO Caroline Heinz.
