Phototron Holdings, Inc. Expands Its Multi Level Marketing Initiative Into the Home Hydroponic Medical Marijuana Market

WOODLAND HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - Phototron Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: PHOT) (OTCQB: PHOT), the designer, manufacturer and seller of the PHOTOTRON Hydroponic Indoor Grow System, launches the first Multi Level Marketing (MLM) network distribution initiative designed to serve both the $30 billion home gardening market and the $1.7 billion medical marijuana community.

"It is about empowering medical marijuana patients," said Craig Ellins, Phototron Holding, Inc.'s Chairman of the Board. "Despite being legal in sixteen states, medical marijuana is not covered by most health insurance providers. Patients can incur high costs, often exceeding $5000 per year, and suffer inconvenience and uncertainty in supply while obtaining the medications they need. Our new marketing network affiliates will bring the financial savings, convenience and quality of hydroponically growing medical marijuana directly to those who are most in need: the patients.

"Multi Level network marketing is a person-to-person business and an ideal way to bring the benefits of hydroponic gardening to the $30 billion home gardening market. Our affiliates spread their great enthusiasm for a healthy lifestyle, and passion for growing the best pesticide-free hydroponic fruits, vegetables and flowering plants out to people in their communities who otherwise would not have considered hydroponics.

"Putting together a hydroponic system by buying individual parts and components at a supply store can be complex. It is like buying an engine, transmission, wheels and seats and trying to build a car. The PHOTORON is the solution. It is a completely self-contained home hydroponic grow system. Just plug it in, add water, nutrients, and seeds and start growing.

"Growing plants in the Phototron is very desirable and alleviates a lot of hassles. It is the ultimate in green living, allowing users to produce a pesticide-free crop while taking up less than four square feet of floor space. It's the perfect growing solution for people who want to bring the benefits of hydroponic growing to their homes, condos and apartments," said Ellins.
