LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) December 04, 2019
The Cannabis Business Awards®, the cannabis industry's preeminent business awards show since 2012, honors President Vicente Fox Quesada, Mexico's 55th president, with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his tireless efforts to legalize cannabis in Mexico. Not only has Fox moved the debate forward in his home country, but his advocacy has also helped our momentum across the globe. Along with Fox, Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams and basketball legend Al Harrington are scheduled to appear on the CBA stage as well.
The Las Vegas Cannabis Business Awards® will be held at Hakkasan, once named one of America's Best New Nightclubs by Rolling Stone Magazine and the top club in the world by Playboy Magazine and DJ Mag, on Tuesday, December 10th at 7 PM. Hakkasan is located at 3799 S. Las Vegas, Blvd. Founded by long-time cannabis activist and industry leader, Clover Leaf Founder Chloe Villano, the CBAs have honored leaders of the industry from coast to coast, and even around the world. "Our first international debut in Las Vegas is exciting for our entire team. The CBA Team is looking forward to bringing our one-of-a-kind awards ceremony to Las Vegas," Villano stated, "The Cannabis Business Awards has expanded into Miami, New York City, and Los Angeles to build on our recognition platform. We continue to grow on a global scale, along with the cannabis industry. Las Vegas has taken a huge step forward as a leader in the cannabis industry, and we are so pleased to help continue the momentum started by global cannabis entrepreneurs and advocates." Chloe is a long-time cannabis executive who was featured in People Magazines Marijuana Millionaires and is known as one of the most sought after business consultants in the industry.
A charismatic leader who serves on advisory boards for High Times Magazine and Khiron Life Sciences Corporation, President Fox has been a relentless advocate for the federal legalization of cannabis in Mexico for many years. Just a few months ago, Fox shared his belief that Mexico's market will be much larger than Canada's or California's market with Forbes Magazine.
"It is an honor to receive this award from the Cannabis Business Awards, especially with Mexico close to legalizing cannabis," Vicente Fox states.
"It's also important for investors to understand that the cannabis industry has high return rates for the time being, especially in emerging markets. So, cannabis investments in Mexico can be recuperated much faster than usual," Fox continued. "We still have 5 to 10 years of high profitability still ahead of us."
