Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s HempMeds® Mexico Sponsors Cross-Border Forum, U.S. Representatives and Mexican Political Candidates Set to Discuss Rights to Patient Access

As Mexico’s Marijuana Laws Become More Defined, Legal Experts Join Medical Professionals and Patient Advocates at Public Forum on Marijuana Use April 2 at Marriott Tijuana

SAN DIEGO, March 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Medical Marijuana, Inc., (OTC PINK:MJNA) is proud to announce to shareholders and the public that portfolio company HempMeds® Mexico is sponsoring a cross-border effort to discuss new perspectives on cannabis and legal access in Mexico.

Former California Assembly member Lori Saldaña and San Diego council member David Álvarez will join Tijuana government officials at the April 2 meeting, which will take place at the Hotel Marriott Tijuana located at Blvd. Agua Caliente 11553, col. Aviacion, Tijuana, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Patients and government officials from Tijuana and California will also participate in the public forum.

Presenting on the rapidly evolving global cannabis industry is Dr. Stuart W. Titus, Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc., who in February educated Mexican and international healthcare practitioners on cannabis’ anti-aging benefits in Mexico City. At the Tijuana event, Titus will explain aspects of the endocannabinoid system and the effects of cannabidiol (CBD) on a wide array of conditions expressed in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ patent 6630507 “Cannabinoids as Anti-Oxidants and Neuroprotectants.”

During the event, a special presentation about cannabis and human rights will feature experts explaining how Mexican families won the first-ever import permits for Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s RSHO-X™.

Finally Mayela Benavides, mother of Grace Elizalde, will discuss her daughter’s story. Elizalde advocates for the impact that cannabinoid-based therapies have and will specifically discuss the product RSHO-X™, which is the first legally accessible CBD-based product in Mexico available by doctor’s prescription and special import permit.

Representatives from HempMeds® Mexico will explain RSHO-X™ products specifically available to consumers with a doctor’s recommendation and special permit from COFEPRIS in Mexico including:
