HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medbox, Inc. (Pinksheets: MDBX) ( announced today that Vincent Mehdizadeh, the Founder and CEO of subsidiary company Prescription Vending Machines, Inc., was interviewed on

Mehdizadeh provided some history on the company and stated that he established Prescription Vending Machines in 2008, and brought the company's first product to market in 2010 after a development and patenting process.

"We are a healthcare technology company that does consulting for the alternative medicine industry as well as the standard pharmaceutical industry, and offer technology to those industries to help them automate and create transparency and compliance so they can operate more efficiently and effectively," Mehdizadeh said.

Stuart Smith of commented that Medbox has done a great job in separating itself from any competition, as well as from other small cap stocks. "Your company is more established than other stocks (with) diversified revenue streams, first–to-market in areas with high barriers to entry."

"We are the only company that offers both consulting and technology," Mehdizadeh replied. "And we own the patent rights in the U.S. and Canada for our medicine dispensing systems."

The company is currently developing new systems for use in pharmacies. While there are other companies that are trying to automate the industry, they are doing it differently than Medbox. "They are trying to cut the pharmacist out of the equation and dispense medicine out of doctor's offices," Mehdizadeh stated. "The pharmacy boards do not like that."

The company recently developed the Medbox Rx - a pharmacy storage and retrieval system that does not take the pharmacist out of the process. "The pharmacist is still storing the filled prescription for retrieval later by the consumer," Mehdizadeh stated. "Our system functions as a Pharmacist's Assistant."

Mehdizadeh was asked to comment about the future of the company. "We are on pace to well-exceed our 2012 goal, " he stated. "We have the safest methods of operating in the industry and the future looks very bright."
