MMRGlobal Announces Secure Storage for Medical Cannabis Users

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2014) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF) ("MMR") today announced that its patented MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record (PHR) is now being sold in medical cannabis dispensaries. The Company's wholly owned subsidiary, MyMedicalRecords, Inc., launched its program of selling PHRs through dispensaries after months of testing various marketing and sales incentive programs. MyMedicalRecords also has plans to license its patented PHR technologies to others in the cannabis space who may be offering products that infringe on the Company's MyMedicalRecords patents and other intellectual property.

Every password-protected MyMedicalRecords account includes four MyEsafeDepositBox file folders with additional layers of security that can be used to give medical cannabis patients a private and safe place to store encrypted copies of physician recommendations and/or prescriptions. These folders allow patients to protect their sensitive medical information from unauthorized access or view. MyMedicalRecords keeps a user's most personal, private information pertaining to cannabis usage from employer and government intrusiveness as well as any others who might inadvertently view private medical records or cannabis recommendations in a home or office file. This could be particularly damaging to patients who use medical cannabis to navigate through significant health issues; for example, glaucoma patients taking medical cannabis to better manage the effects of reduced intraocular pressure, or patients experiencing side effects from chemotherapy, as well as those who are prescribed it for pain management from fibromyalgia or non-specific neuropathy, among other conditions. Damages from corporate intrusion into an employee's legitimate medical issues can be partially avoided by using a secure MyMedicalRecords PHR.

Another valuable feature of using a MyMedicalRecords PHR is the ability for individuals to prove they indeed have a prescription by carrying an encrypted copy in their MyMedicalRecords account on their smartphone to have whenever and wherever it's needed including to display to law enforcement officers should the need arise. MMR has created a complete program for cannabis retailers including customized point-of-sale displays with built-in systems designed to incentivize employees and customers through frequent purchase incentives, communicate and distribute newsletters, and conduct market research.

The use of Personal Health Records is a key part of modernizing America's healthcare system and the government is spending hundreds of millions of dollars in education designed to empower patients to take greater control of their health, using tools such as a PHR.
