LOS ANGELES, Apr. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Medbox, Inc. (OTCQB: MDBX) (www.medbox.com), a leader in providing ancillary services to the alternative medicine industry, dispensary consulting services, and patented medicine dispensing systems to medical and retail industries, today announced creation of a shareholder due diligence and Q&A page on the company's website.
The purpose of the web content is to help answer questions received from shareholders, potential shareholders and investigative journalists in an outwardly transparent manner.
"The point is setting the standard for all companies to follow in our industry," stated Vincent Mehdizadeh, Senior Strategist and Founder at Medbox. "The high profile that the industry and market has awarded us makes us a target for overzealous and sometimes unscrupulous 'Short Journalists' that will ask questions, distort company responses, and publish content that is misleading and factually inaccurate. This strategy will enable Medbox to document questions that are presented to us and that we feel warrant a response. That is the level of transparency the investment community deserves."
In addition, recently, a few public companies in the marijuana industry had trading suspended by the SEC due to a lack of "adequacy and accuracy of information" about their companies.
"We are a new SEC filer and strive to bring legitimacy to this new industry as it is taking shape," stated Dr. Bruce Bedrick CEO of Medbox. "As a company, we take pride in the steps we have taken to get here and the steps we will ultimately take to reach our next goals of capturing additional revenue, maintaining shareholder value through our dynamic and disruptive technologies, and also thinking outside the box as to shareholder communications. We have a great rapport with our shareholders and it is an honor serving them and building our brand."

The section may be updated quarterly with additional questions and answers at the company's discretion.
