MPX International Partners with the United Kingdom's Leading Advocate for Drug Policy Reform
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 17, 2019 / MPX International Corporation ("MPX International", "MPXI" or the "Company") (CSE: MPXI; OTC PINK: MPXOF) is pleased to announce that it is extending its partnership with Volteface, a UK-based cross party organization that informs the public debate around drugs through excellence in policy, research and advocacy.
Since starting out in 2016, with the aim of providing a new focus on drug policy reform, Volteface has evolved into an important and influential organization. During this time, the United Kingdom has seen significant developments in cannabis reform, most notably the legalization of medical cannabis in November 2018. Volteface has produced ten impactful reports, written hundreds of articles, and hosted countless events, in addition to working with all parties across Parliament.
W. Scott Boyes, Chairman, President and CEO of MPX International said, "Our interactions with patients in North America, and our ability to witness the efficacy and quality of life improvement available from properly-manufactured cannabinoid-based products, have inspired us to support the expansion of their availability globally, with a near term focus on the United Kingdom, where there is an unmet need for safe, reliable and effective medical cannabis products."
Mr. Boyes concluded, "Volteface is known for its commitment to the principles of integrity, honesty and evidence-based policy making. The organization works to reduce the harm done to individuals and society by the UK's current drugs policy regime, through evidence-based policy and reform. We are proud to support them in their mission."
MPX International took over the agreement with Volteface from its predecessor, MPX Bioceutical Corporation, which had been in place since September 2018. The partnership is renewed annually.
