DALLAS, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- X-Change Corp. (NASDAQ OTC: XCHC), a U.S. Company specializing in cannabinoid formulation-based health and wellness solutions through its Phytiva Brand product lines, is excited to announce that 'AMERICAN DRUG WAR 2: Cannabis Destiny,' a film by Kevin Booth and produced by Sacred Cow Productions, will have its national release on June 6, 2013 in Denver, Colorado. There will be a VIP screening event on Thursday, April 18, at Casselman's in Denver, Colorado to kick off the 'High Times' Cannabis Cup weekend. The event also includes a Cloverleaf University Class taught by Ed Rosenthal as well as musical performance.
During the pre-production and research phase for 'AMERICAN DRUG WAR 2: Cannabis Destiny,' award-winning filmmaker Kevin Booth searched for a leading voice to shed light on medical cannabinoid formulations to help inform the general public. The first installment of 'American Drug War' had premiered on Showtime in 2008 and featured interviews with University of Colorado Professor Robert Melamede, PhD, who has been working on FDA-track cannabinoid medicines through a publicly traded company, Cannabis Science, Inc., after decades of activism and scientific research. Dr. Melamede continues his efforts to bring the actual cannabis plant derivative into the modern pharmacopeia and is again featured in the new film.
X-Change Corporation is picking up this film awareness effort and other projects that Cannabis Science had begun over the last twelve months, as Cannabis Science's sole direction has evolved to cannabinoid drug development, clinical trials, and FDA and other regulatory approval for its drugs, including its CS_TATI-1 formulation to treat Kaposi's Sarcoma.
X-Change Corporation is also in the process of updating its website with actual testimonials and photographs of the profound efficacy of treating skin cancer and other critical ailments with topical and ingested cannabis extracts. The precise launch date of the website with this information will be announced soon.

Already gaining key support, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) called 'AMERICAN DRUG WAR 2' "the most powerful and important documentary to date." 'AMERICAN DRUG WAR 2' Director Kevin Booth navigates through the cutting edge of cannabinoid research showing a child's foster parent managing the child's court-order to take powerful mind-altering drugs.
The film's distribution is being headed up by Gravitas Venture, a trend setting company that specializes in world-wide video-on-demand as well as a theatrical release through on-line start up TUGG.com. "Basically anyone - anywhere can go to TUGG.com and request a screening in their own area at their favorite theater. It's a new concept revolutionizing the industry called 'Theaters on Demand.'

About the original "American Drug War"
Thirty-five years after Nixon started the war on drugs, we have over one million non-violent drug offenders living behind bars.
The War on Drugs has become the longest and most costly war in American history; the question has become, how much more can the country endure? Inspired by the death of four family members from "legal drugs," Texas filmmaker Kevin Booth sets out to discover why the Drug War has become such a big failure. Three and a half years in the making, the film follows gang members, former DEA agents, CIA officers, narcotics officers, judges, politicians, prisoners and celebrities. Most notably the film befriends Freeway Ricky Ross, the man many accuse for starting the Crack epidemic, who after being arrested discovered that his cocaine source had been working for the CIA.
'American Drug War' shows how money, power and greed have corrupted not just drug pushers, but also an entire government. More importantly, it shows what can be done about it. This is not some 'pro-drug' stoner film, but a collection of expert testimonials from the ground troops on the front lines of the drug war, the ones who are fighting it and the ones who are living it.
