Dr. Stuart Titus Quoted in Forbes Magazine
Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus was interviewed as part of a recent Forbes article exploring the success cannabis reform had in the recent U.S. midterm elections – including recreational marijuana passing in Michigan and medical marijuana passing in Utah and Missouri.
“It’s very exciting to see the incredible strides the U.S. has made for marijuana legislation with this election. As a pioneer in the industry, and as the first publicly-traded cannabis company in the U.S., we have seen a true shift in the opinion of the American people on cannabis in the past decade and we’re thankful that this progress has only continued with this year’s midterm election,” Dr. Titus said of Medical Marijuana, Inc. in the article.
