GB Sciences Receives The Prestigious 'Spirit Of The Law' Award

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GB Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB: GBLX) has received a 2017 "Spirit of the Law" award in recognition of its accomplishments in improving the quality of patient care. The Spirit of The Law Awards were started in 1984 by Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff Ricky Jones. The awards were made to shine light onto the law enforcement personnel who understand that there is the "letter of the law" and also the "spirit of the law."  In 2016 the Awards were expanded to celebrate non-law enforcement persons and organizations which "go above and beyond to serve their community."

John Poss, CEO, GB Sciences, accepted the award on behalf of GB Sciences, but then passed it on to Dr. Andrea Small-Howard and Dr. Helen Turner, recognizing that it is their scientific work that is deserving of the Award. 

"We are grateful to be recognized for our work at the intersection of cannabis research and the treatment of debilitating diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases," said Mr. Poss. He continued. "Too often, sick people are denied treatments because of the prejudices against new and innovative medicines. Fortunately, in California, Nevada and an increasing number of states, patients have legal access to medical cannabis for the treatment of pain and side effects of other remedies, such as chemotherapy. In a country wracked by the opioid crisis, it is unconscionable that safe access is denied anywhere. At GB Sciences, we are taking medical cannabis to the next level, by uncovering the plant's chemical compounds that can be used to prevent or cure illnesses when used in specific combinations. Our success depends on the support of communities like yours."
