BARCELONA, Spain -- May 9, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Wuhan General Group (China), Inc. (OTC PINK: WUHN) (the "Company" and "Wuhan"), and M2BIO is delighted to share the voting results of Initiative 301 held in Denver last night. Denver will become the first US city to effectively decriminalize mushrooms containing the psychedelic psilocybin, also known as "magic mushrooms."

"The Denver vote and results are truly groundbreaking news for Wuhan and M2BIO. We are really looking forward to sharing very soon in details our medicinal mushroom roadmap in South Africa with our partner BioDelta," said Jeff Robinson, MJ MedTech CEO.
Leon Giese, Biodelta CEO added: "BioDelta has deep experience in producing medicinal plants under ISO 9001 certification and we are eager to be working with Wuhan to grow and commercialize medicinal mushrooms into our existing supply chain."
M2BIO aims to develop new therapies that will help patients who suffer from mental illness and ease the burden on healthcare systems globally. This division will be exploring additional indications for psilocybin, with the goal of bringing new therapies to market.
