Flora Growth’s (NASDAQ: FLGC) CEO Luis Merchan recently met with Senator Gustavo Bolivar, a Colombian representative who introduced a bill that creates the framework for recreational cannabis in the state. The bill was introduced on July 20, 2022, the same day that Merchan and Bolivar met. The two gentlemen met before Bolivar, a key author of the bill, introduced the bill to Congress. The two talked about what the bill might mean to cannabis countries operating in the country as well as for Colombia’s growing domestic and international cannabis markets, including both domestic trade and international exports. According to the announcement, the two also chatted about the future of cannabis regulations, including the need for government regulations and approvals, as well as the potential for cannabis pharmaceuticals. The discussion also included Colombia becoming a global leader in the legal export of cannabis and its derivatives.

Bolivar and other key policymakers to support legislation that will provide safe access to cannabinoid-based products both domestically and in international markets,” said Flora Growth CEO Luis Merchan in the press release. “We are committed to creating effective, high-quality products.
