TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 29, 2017) - Beleave Inc. ("Beleave" or the "Company") (CSE:BE)(CSE:BE.CN)(CSNX:BE)(OTCQX:BLEVF) is pleased to support initiatives like the "Don't Drive High" campaign that make the public aware of the potential repercussions to driving under the influence. As we get closer to the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada in July 2018, Ontario is planning on introducing tougher penalties for drivers caught under the influence.
"It is important to us that the implementation of recreational cannabis in Canada occurs as smoothly as possible. With all eyes on the industry we want to put our best foot forward," stated Beleave Chief Science Officer Roger Ferreira, "Our message is simply that cannabis should be used responsibly. Impaired driving, which includes driving under the influence of cannabis, is illegal. However, there is a segment of the population that may be unaware of this or feel they are more attentive drivers after consuming cannabis. Our intention is to inform all drivers of the facts in an effective and memorable way."
The Company's goal in supporting the campaign is not to sell the advertised "Consequence Strains", rather the goal, in partnership with R.I.D.E. CHECKS, is to start an important conversation, raise awareness and protect cannabis users from the dangers associated with driving impaired.
Beleave Inc. is a biotech company and Beleave's wholly-owned subsidiary Beleave Kannabis Corp. (formerly First Access Medical Inc.) is a licensed producer pursuant to the ACMPR. Beleave's purpose-built facility is located in Hamilton, Ontario.
