PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Aug 25, 2014) - American Green (OTC: ERBB) has secured two key patents which have strengthened the company's intellectual property protection over the popular ZaZZZ machine and modified development for the world's first public-facing cannabis vending machine.
The patents, numbered 6,711,465 and 7,493,190, were produced for the purpose of safely vending age-controlled, identity-specific items, all of which fit directly into American Green's business plan.
"Two of our main focuses of in the medical Marijuana industry are to safely provide high quality products to consumers, while abiding to the strictest letter of the law. The Company believes that these new patents clearly put us on target and make us a leader in the industry. Acquiring these patents moves us even closer to our goal of making ZAZZZ the top consumer-operated marijuana vending machine in the world," says American Green's President, Stephen Shearin.
As even more states in the U.S. continue to inch closer to passing legislation to legalize marijuana for medical use and/or general adult use, American Green continues to pursue new opportunities and close deals and partnership deals that have been in their pipeline.
"Patients are located all over, but they all know what they want and should have immediate or, at least, unfettered access. The ZaZZZ system is an obvious solution -- for the consumer and the dispensary. Saving consumer's time and giving them what they want in seconds, as opposed to waiting in lines, ZaZZZ is in high demand by many popular dispensaries nationwide, and we have been ramping up our technology as a result of that growing demand and aggressive field testing," added Shearin.
"We are extremely excited to secure this valuable IP for American Green and the future opportunities that it will help us to secure and maintain a leading position within the growing marijuana industry worldwide," says Shearin.
