HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medbox, Inc. (Pinksheets: MDBX) (www.medboxinc.com) started its media tour in Hartford to assist companies and individuals apply to the state to open legal and fully compliant medical marijuana clinics in the State of Connecticut.
Dr. Bruce Bedrick, CEO of Medbox, Inc., appeared in a variety of news reports and television shows. Publicity ranged from local morning news broadcasts, to newspaper interviews, to televised round-table discussions on the topic of medical marijuana and the need for transparency and legally compliant methods of operation.
"After we made it clear that these machines would not be directly accessible by the patient and that they would be located inside a state licensed medical marijuana pharmacy or dispensary, the media quickly understood our company's mission to create a safe and friendly environment for all parties involved with this new industry in Connecticut," said Bedrick. "The machine is an inventory management and compliance tool that dispenses at the instruction of a state licensed operator. In states with strict oversight like Colorado, Arizona, and now Connecticut, our technology works to complement regulations and does not in any way thwart or undermine existing legislation."
Medbox will be organizing an educational seminar at or near their new Hartford office in the coming months to further educate pharmacists, individual entrepreneurs, law enforcement, and patients that wish to see their advanced technology, first-hand, and want to learn more about the delicate nuances of the alternative medicine industry.
