"With the interest in Medbox being shown by alternative medicine dispensaries, assisted living facilities, hospice, urgent care centers, and prisons, expanding our capability to offer a full range of solutions, covering all touch points, will best serve our clients' interests, and open more market opportunities for the company," stated Dr. Bruce Bedrick, CEO of Medbox, Inc. "We are encouraged by the fact that our user base is growing at an enormous rate. Being able to profit from products and services offered to those clients makes a lot of sense for the company as well as our shareholders."
