“It is an honor to be a part of this selective group of Members in launching this National Hispanic Cannabis Council. I have been working in the Cannabis space for the last 7 years in order to find cures for diseases. Unfortunately for those believers in the plant, the United States has been slow to open the doors to this issue while the rest of the world is moving much faster to find true medicines. It is this organization that can lead the way towards international uniformity as the South American and other Hispanic countries pave the way towards creating true medicinal products. Hispanics are underrepresented in the Cannabis space and these new countries entering the Cannabis space need guidance. This organization will become the liaison between these countries and Cannabis, and as I stated earlier I am proud to be a part of it.”
