Khiron Life Sciences Corp. ("Khiron" or the "Company") (TSXV: KHRN) (OTCQX: KHRNF)(Frankfurt: A2JMZC), a vertically integrated medical cannabis leader with core operations in Latin America and Europe, today reiterates its plans to enter the Mexican medical cannabis market in 2021, following a landmark vote by the Mexican Supreme Court to decriminalize adult use cannabis. The decision of the Supreme Court underscores the political and social commitment to normalize the use of cannabis in Mexico.
Vicente Fox, Khiron Director and former President of Mexico, comments, "I believe Mexico will be the largest legal cannabis market in the world, and with a proven strategy for Latin America and the knowledge and track record to execute, Khiron remains at the forefront of this exciting market. Today's vote by the Supreme Court is an important step forward on the road to full legalization in Mexico."
