IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2016) - Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTC PINK: CBIS), a U.S. company specializing in the development of cannabis-based medicines, is urging shareholders to take part in this year's election by performing the most basic of civic duties: voting.
Shareholders have a unique opportunity to directly help Cannabis Science scale up its operations and reach more customers by helping pass pro-cannabis legislation. With nine states voting on cannabis-related legislation, the potential to greatly expand the company's total attainable market is greater than ever before.
From a medical standpoint, 60% of Americans support marijuana use as per polls by Gallup. This has climbed from 12% in 1969. As more states have legalized medical marijuana and the impact of positive treatment results reached more people, public sentiment has greatly improved, and is anticipated to continue following this trend. Additionally, political figureheads such as Nancy Pelosi are voicing their support for Proposition 64, which is a sign that higher ups are starting to see their constituents' progressing opinions on marijuana.
In California, Proposition 64 has seen tremendous support in pre-election polling, but in order for these positive results to come to fruition, it is crucial all supporters cast their vote.
"Our great nation was founded on the principles of giving the people what they want. Right now, that seems to be legalizing cannabis. Make your voice heard and vote on November 8th," said Director, President, CEO & Co-Founder, Raymond C. Dabney. "Our company is ready to start our post-election plan, and we are ready to hit the ground running with our e-commerce website launch and new products."
The company will be launching its new products through multiple new dispensary partners in the State of California as well as through its own e-commerce website that will be launched soon. The new website will allow medical patients to acquire their medications through doctor forms, but it will also allow those who are legally allowed to consume marijuana recreationally the ability to make online purchases.
