Medical Marijuana Inc Spotlights the Future of Hemp in America During Weekend Hemp Events

FOOTHILL RANCH, CA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2010) - Medical Marijuana Inc (PINKSHEETS: MJNA) is proud to announce that The Hemp Network, which is a new multi-level marketing division, (www.thehempnetwork.com) reports an excellent response to The Hemp Network at two cannabis and hemp industry events this previous weekend. The two events were Mega Production's "HempCon" at the Los Angeles Convention Center and The Hemp and Cannabis Foundation's "Hempstalk 2010" in Portland, Oregon. Medical Marijuana Inc is now in full momentum as they prepare for their own upcoming medical cannabis trade show in October at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan, which is being hailed as the largest event of this kind ever to take place east of the Mississippi (www.harmonyharvestfest.com).

A team of ten of Hemp Network's "International Hemp Consultants" in Los Angeles, California and a team of eight "IHCs" in Portland, Oregon recorded 328 new signups to The Hemp Network. The Hemp Network now has over 2,800 distributors and growing rapidly every day, making it the largest sales force in the medical marijuana, cannabis and hemp industries.

CEO Bruce Perlowin said, "It was exciting and gratifying to feel the energy and note the reaction and interaction of the attendees with the IHCs. Everyone was aware and involved with the need to revive the hemp plant and its many uses and benefits. That's why so many people were willing to take the time not only to listen, but to enroll in the Hemp Network (www.thehempnetwork.com) and to learn from the leaders."

Perlowin was the featured speaker at HempCon, where he spoke both Friday and Saturday night, elaborating on the "Marijuana Business Outlook for the Next Five Years." The Hemp Network and Medical Marijuana Inc will be showcased in each of the six or more HempCon medical marijuana trade shows scheduled for the coming year in different cities around the US.
