MARINA DEL REY, CA, Jul 02, 2009 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) —
Medical Marijuana, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MJNA) expands into Venice, California by signing “99 High Art Collective,” which will begin to implement Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s tax remittance card in 4th quarter 2009. “The high energy marketing efforts of our Agents are building major momentum, moving us full steam ahead, as we now have 13 Cannabis Collectives who have agreed to use our Tax Remittance Card,” says Rob Griffin, Chief Operations Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc.
Medical Marijuana, Inc. is the first public company to recognize the vast and unequaled opportunities that exist in the rapidly expanding Medical Marijuana market. The scientific recognition of marijuana as a powerful medicine has brought marijuana to a new status, and opened the door for investment and opportunity.
The Stored Value Platform System will provide verifiable solutions to manage the difficult task of revenue and taxation collection. The “Point of Sale” (POS) system will recognize the dispensary’s tax ID number, state and local tax rates and then provide “Automated Clearing House” (ACH) settlement of the taxes to the proper financial institutions. The customers of the dispensary are issued a plastic debit card or medical revenue card. The ease of access to certifiably secure transactions lessens the risk of loss at each level of the transaction.
All collectives/dispensaries in the U.S. are cash businesses. This presents a number of challenges. Dispensary owners risk employee theft and possible competition for sales with unsupervised employees. Our stored value card also eliminates the risks of carrying cash. For the investor looking to open more than one dispensary, this card allows him the ease of mind of knowing all transactions are accounted for in all of his locations.
Medical Marijuana, Inc. is developing a suite of solutions to deliver an efficient and secure infrastructure for the Medical Marijuana Industry that will provide the tools to industry operators to effectively manage their businesses with the confidence that they are in full compliance.
