PLUS Announces Participation in Newly Created National Cannabis Roundtable, with John Boehner as Honorary Chairman
A National Campaign to Reform Federal Cannabis Laws
SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Plus Products Inc. (CSE: PLUS) (OTCQB:PLPRF) (the “Company” or “PLUS™”) is pleased to announce its participation in the newly formed National Cannabis Roundtable (“NCR”), a campaign aimed at reforming federal cannabis laws. The NCR will focus on advocating for a rational legal framework for cannabis reform in the United States. Former Speaker of the House, John Boehner, will serve as Honorary Chairman.
“As the cannabis industry grows and matures, it’s vital that we work together for a common-sense legal framework for cannabis policy,” Speaker Boehner said today. As membership grows, he says, NCR will be comprised of growers, processors, retailers, wellness centers, investors, entrepreneurs, and publicly traded companies. With strategic guidance from Speaker Boehner, NCR’s public policy team, which includes The Liaison Group, Squire Patton Boggs and HDMK Public Affairs, will advocate for a multi-faceted reform agenda:
Remove federal restrictions that prohibit medical research involving cannabis. Encourage the development of solutions that will improve the lives of veterans and patients and combat the opioid epidemic in the United States.
Allow companies operating legally in the cannabis industry to utilize traditional institutions for transactions and access to financial markets.
Correct flaws in the US tax code that serve as barriers to legal commerce in the cannabis industry and prohibit the development of solutions that can improve Americans’ lives.
Build support for, and secure enactment of, federal legislation allowing states to set and enforce their own laws governing cannabis.
“As the Cannabis industry matures, leading companies have a responsibility to help keep the public safe and well informed,” said Jake Heimark, CEO of PLUS. “Our mission at PLUS is to make cannabis safe and approachable and we are excited to help further that mission by being an inaugural participant in the National Cannabis Roundtable.”
“As the top edible company in the largest state, we look forward to helping shape the national dialog around cannabis consumption and make sure the cannabis industry takes a responsible role in keeping consumers safe,” said Jennifer Tung, PLUS’ Chief Risk Officer.
