(OTC Pink: PSIQ) announces it has granted the exclusive distribution rights to Paraguay, Chile and Brazil to RCS International Investments, Corp.

In December 2017, Paraguay’s Congress passed a bill creating a state-sponsored system to import marijuana seeds and grow the plant for medical use. See https://420intel.com/regional/paraguay. In January 2018, president Horacio Cartes officially signed the medical cannabis bill that approved the legalization of medical cannabis. This bill removed marijuana from the list of the country’s “most dangerous drugs” and, in effect, re-categorized it as a medication instead.

In November 2018, Brazil’s Senate approved a bill that would legalize home growing of medical marijuana. Only patients, patient associations or relatives would be authorized to grow and produce medical marijuana if the measure becomes law. Currently, the only legal way of accessing medical marijuana in Brazil is to import product individually, with approval on a case-by-case basis. Because importing products is so expensive, home growing would increase access to a large number of patients that “today can’t even dream of having access to legal imported cannabis,” Margarete Brito, general coordinator of APEPI, an association of medical cannabis patients, told Marijuana Business Daily.

In 2014, Chile legalized the cultivation of medical cannabis. Cultivators must get a license from the Chilean Agriculture Service. Sale of medical cannabis is only allowed through prescription at pharmacies. https://www.cannabisbusinesstimes.com/article/cannabis-legalization-world-map/
“Based upon the success and commitment being made in Mexico and Argentina by RCS, we have granted additional distribution rights to RCS. We expect the relationship with RCS to continue to flourish to increasing revenues for PSIQ,” stated Dan Oran, CEO of PSIQ.
