Medical Marijuana Inc Launches New MLM Marketing Division

FOOTHILL RANCH, CA--(Marketwire - April 20, 2010) -  Medical Marijuana Inc (PINKSHEETS: MJNA) has begun the pre-launch of its newest division, The Hemp Network. The Hemp Network is the first network marketing company in history to provide consumers with hemp products on a network marketing platform. President Don Steinberg stated, "We are all now at the 'right time, right place' to take advantage of an industry that has been around for thousands of years, with products derived from hemp being used today by millions of people. Over the past few years it has become apparent that with the increasing pace of new products hitting the market, there is a need to move those products throughout the world at a very fast rate. Now The Hemp Network has been formed to provide a marketing vehicle for massive global distribution of these new products and services as they hit the market, which is imperative to capture market share. The Hemp Network is now the launching pad for thousands of new ideas that people worldwide have in this giant emerging industry. We are here to help develop and market those ideas."

"This is another exciting first for us that MJNA is proud to announce," said Chairman Bruce Perlowin, who also stated, "With a state of the art software program that The Hemp Network is based upon, we intend to provide a new level of interaction and awareness between the public and what we feel is the next green industry. Perception is rapidly changing as evidenced by the turnout and response over this past weekend where MJNA participated at cannabis events in San Francisco, Aspen, and Rhode Island. With past successes our President, Don Steinberg, and myself have experienced in network marketing endeavors, the soft roll-out of The Hemp Network is inevitable and natural for us, and we are busy readying for the full launch in early June."

We are now in Pre-launch, which is when a network marketing company tests its systems before a national rollout. This will last about 4 weeks and we do allow people to sign into The Hemp Network prior to the June 1st date.

Network Marketing and the Principals' Past Performance

Don Steinberg and Bruce Perlowin have in the past created the world's largest telecom network marketing company in the world. Now, with Hemp and related products, they plan to do it again. 

All of our original plans for the company are still in focus and this substantial agent force will keep Medical Marijuana Inc at the forefront toward rapid distribution of new products and services as they hit the market.

Medical Marijuana Inc will keep the momentum going as its executives will attend 420 events today, on 4-20 in Los Angeles, La Jolla and the Inland Empire.
