Yesterday, in a separate interview with the BBC, Vincent Mehdizadeh, Founder and Senior Consultant at Medbox, Inc, commented on how Medbox can help governments and state boards monitor and receive accurate taxes from the sale of legal marijuana. With some reports stating the legal marijuana business could generate as much as $20 billion in annual revenues, it is important that all sales are handled in a meticulously transparent method. As a behind-the-counter dispensing and compliance tool for dispensary operators, Medbox systems have the ability to link directly to state systems for complete, real-time reporting, while still being HIPAA compliant by keeping patient information private.
Closing Bell airs from 3-5pm EST on CNBC. Dr. Bedrick will be featured in the 4:30 pm EST time slot today.
