Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s "420" News: Hemp Brands and Investments Capture Attention of Fox Business, CNN Money, Yahoo Beauty and More

Mainstream News Reports Shine Light on MJNA's Position in the Estimated Multibillion-Dollar U.S. Market, Demystify Cannabidiol (CBD) and Cannabigerol (CBG), and Educate Masses on Cannabis

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - April 21, 2016) - Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC PINK: MJNA), the first publicly traded U.S. cannabis stock, is pleased to announce to the Company's shareholders and the public that many of its portfolio brands and investments were featured in "420" mainstream news coverage.

The cannabis-focused content that featured MJNA's brands and investments educated the masses on the open availability of hemp cannabidiol (CBD) oil products as well as the future access of cannabigerol (CBG) in retail products. A report by Fox Business quantifies the emerging U.S. market by stating, "Two new economic analyses project that the entire marijuana industry will be more than $40 billion over the next five to ten years and if cannabis becomes legal nationwide, the industry could hit $100 billion by 2050."

"From '420' news reports, it is clear the public has an interest in knowledge about cannabis and retail products containing cannabinoids," states Dr. Stuart Titus, Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc. "This level of news coverage dispels decades-old myths, elevates the perception of today's cannabis industry and accurately depicts the choices of cannabis products for consumers in the U.S. and around the world."

Recently, media coverage of the national debate on cannabis reform within Mexico has led to a change in attitude toward cannabis by Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto. Formerly a staunch opponent of cannabis legalization -- he reversed course with an epic pronouncement at the United Nations Special Assembly focused on the global battle on drug policy and cannabis reform earlier this week. "I am giving voice to those who have (in public forums) expressed the necessity of changing the regulatory framework to authorize the use of marijuana for medical and scientific purposes," President Nieto told the U.N. on Tuesday, April 19.

Titus concludes, "Education and compassion are essential to achieving global acceptance of and access to cannabis. Mexico's President Nieto shows a wonderful example of the science and national debate leading the way toward change. Certainly cannabis was a deciding factor in the recent election of the new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. For that reason, we are grateful to the media for taking the time to understand what MJNA has ultimately created: access to the world's first and largest non-psychoactive CBD hemp oil pipeline."
