Red Light Holland Engages Graham Pechenik, Respected Patent and IP Lawyer and Editor-at-Large of Psilocybin Alpha, as Senior Advisor to Advisory Board
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 31, 2020) - Red Light Holland Corp. (CSE: TRIP) (FSE: 4YX) (OTC: TRUFF) ("Red Light Holland") is pleased to announce it has engaged Graham Pechenik to serve as a Senior Advisor to its Advisory Board. Graham is a registered patent attorney, with degrees in Biochemistry and Cognitive Neuroscience. Mr Pechenik gained over a decade of experience representing Fortune 500 companies in the agricultural, chemical, pharmaceutical, biotech, and technology industries before founding Calyx Law in 2016, the first intellectual property law boutique to focus on cannabis and psychedelics. Graham is also editor-at-large of Psilocybin Alpha, where he tracks patent filings and writes about patent issues in the psychedelics space.
“Adding Graham Pechenik, who is a well-respected lawyer who develops IP strategies, protects IP through patent and trademark filings, and uses IP to generate value and growth, coupled with his strong support and advocacy of responsible use of psychedelics, to Red Light Holland’s Advisory Board, as a Senior Advisor, is another magical moment for the Company,” said Todd Shapiro, the Chief Executive Officer and Director of Red Light Holland. “During the last seven months we have compiled an incredible Advisory Board, including our chair Bruce Linton. Graham was, simply put, another desired piece of the puzzle we were searching for to help round out this very important and active team. We are elated to have Graham join Red Light Holland and our visions of providing responsible legal access of psilocybin, through education and information align tremendously.”
“Having experienced firsthand the benefits of psilocybin mushrooms and microdosing, including for issues involving anxiety, alcohol use, and attention, I’m a strong supporter of making these benefits I’ve seen personally (without making medical claims) available to responsible adults everywhere,” said Graham Pechenik, Founder of Calyx Law. “However, even just discussing the use of mushrooms is heavily stigmatized in most places. I look forward to the day when psilocybin mushrooms and truffles are hopefully more legally accessible, and I am thrilled to help Red Light Holland raise awareness of the magic truffle worldwide. I’m honoured and delighted to work toward this vision with such a stellar team.”
In consideration for his services as Senior Advisor, and subject to all applicable laws (including the rules and policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange) ("Applicable Laws") the Company has granted to Mr. Pechenik 250,000 incentive stock options (the "Options" and each individually, the "Option"). Each Option will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share in the capital of Company for a period of three years from the date of issuance, at an exercise price of $0.315 CND. The Options shall be subject to Applicable Laws and the terms and conditions of the Stock Option Plan of the Company.
