The Medical Marijuana Controversy Continues as Actor Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Cheryl Shuman Face Off on Dr. Phil
LAS VEGAS, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- This week on Dr. Phil, two strong advocators for and against medical marijuana usage will come face-to-face to discuss a topic that has lingered in America for well over 50 years. The show will air on Friday, October 25, 2013. Antonio Sabata, Jr., known actor and model, is campaigning to ban the growth and distribution of medical marijuana in homes with children under the age of 18. To the contrary, Cheryl Shuman, who is well known in the medical marijuana industry will be defending her stance that everyone, regardless of age, should have access to medical marijuana and hemp-based cannabidiol products.
Agreeing with Cheryl Shuman, David Tobias said, "It's totally absurd that while the largest population in America being prescribed pharmaceutical drugs are children aged 4-18 that anybody would have the audacity to state that these same children should not have access to alternative, natural herbs and products such as medical marijuana when research has clearly shown the numerous benefits in curing and helping a wide range of medical conditions in this age group. Before anyone gives their opinion, they should read the research reports and medical breakthroughs that are constantly being reported on the beneficial effects of medical marijuana. We thought that opinions like this ended when people realized the world wasn't flat and are shocked that such antiquated dogma rears its head and we thank Cheryl Shuman for being one of the voices to set the record straight. All Americans should watch this show so they can decide for themselves and be informed of this quickly emerging multi billion dollar industry."
Shuman is also a brand ambassador to Medical Marijuana Inc.'s portfolio company, HempMedsPX. The original founder of Medical Marijuana, Inc. was Bruce Perlowin, an innovative, savvy, aggressive entrepreneur and progressive advocate of the medical marijuana and industrial hemp industries. He was, subsequently, the first leader promulgating a viable medical marijuana public company. His legacy continues to get national exposure for this industry much like the Dr. Phil show. Perlowin is also a consultant in the industrial hemp industry via Hemp, Inc.'s consulting division. Along with David Tobias, they are the industry's premier consultants.
According to Perlowin's son, Aubree Arias, CEO of Compassion Capitol, LLC, his father has, "made great strides in unifying and educating the public about the hemp industry. Before my father took Medical Marijuana, Inc. public, there were no publicly traded corporations in this arena. He had the courage to be a pioneer and risk bringing Medical Marijuana, Inc. into the public equities market. Taking on the stigma associated with hemp has not been an easy road, but he has paved the way, and we are seeing the fruits of that now, five years later, with over two dozen publicly traded entities in this sector."
Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. stated, "I admire Cheryl Shuman. She is among the most informed, intelligent and articulate spokespersons for the medical marijuana industry and we here at Hemp, Inc. applaud her untiring efforts to champion our industry and look forward to watching her on Dr. Phil."
Not only has Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) been flooding the market with health products, its CEO, Bruce Perlowin is quite the philanthropist, according to inside sources. "Bruce Perlowin is an interesting character. Very philanthropic. His journey reminds me of the 'Catch Me If You Can' movie," says David Tobias, President of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP). "He was personally the catalyst for launching an entire sector of medical marijuana and industrial hemp publicly traded companies."
Perlowin's own Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) is the largest publicly-traded company (trading in excess of 10,000,000 shares a day) of hemp stocks by market capitalization with hemp-based products proven to increase the body's overall health and performance. The company boasts HerbaGenix™ nutraceuticals (www.herbagenix.com); BasicHemp (www.basichemp.com), their hemp protein shakes brand; and, custom-branded MJ Lover for Him and MJ Lover for Her (www.mjlover.com) and Re-Load Hemp nutraceuticals (www.re-load.biz) which is derived from a blend of organic nutrients, herbs, and vitamins including hemp extract (0.00% THC) and AFA blue-green algae which is known for its healthful effects. So while educating and providing consumers on the many uses of industrial hemp, Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) has forged a path in the industrial hemp industry.
