SAN DIEGO, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that it received extensive media coverage on the successful April 21-22 World Medical Cannabis Conference and Expo in Pittsburgh, Pa., which brought thousands of people from around the world to learn about the benefits of medical marijuana.
Medical Marjiuana, Inc.'s CEO Dr. Stuart Titus spoke to several television and radio stations about the future of the medical marijuana industry and the Company's groundbreaking Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) and zero-THC Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™). Dr. Titus was also a featured panelist where he spoke about industrial hemp in Pennsylvania, along with the state's House of Representatives member, Eric Nelson.
"This World Medical Cannabis Conference and Expo was a huge success and once again confirmed that medical marijuana is one of the fastest growing industries," said Dr. Titus. "We were so proud of the families who shared their children's stories, as we've seen time and again in legalization efforts across the nations, families of young children with special needs are the driving force of cannabis reform."
Other media coverage focused on the families of young medical cannabis patients who came to the conference to tell their stories about how they discovered that using cannabis could help treat their children who suffer debilitating conditions.
"This changed my life, my daughter's life and the lives of all my family," said medical cannabis activist Raul Elizalde of Monterey, Mexico, in a Pittsburgh Action News 4 article.
