SAN DIEGO, April 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary company and contracted marketing agent, HempMedsPX™, is launching a public awareness campaign—"DON'T MOVE"— to counter recent reports by the mainstream media that one must relocate to a legalized medical marijuana state to access cannabidiol (CBD) oil. Through "DON'T MOVE",HempMedsPX™ is expanding its current public awareness campaign that CBD-rich hemp oil is openly available in all 50 states and more than 40 countries. The Company plans to officially launch the "DON'T MOVE" campaign in April at all of the industry conferences, expos and events they are attending or sponsoring.
"It is heartbreaking to see more mainstream media reports each day, highlighting families who are uprooting or being torn apart in their quest for CBD," states Charles Vest, VP of Communications for HempMedsPX™. "They are leaving their families, their support system, their churches, and their schools. This causes a domino effect of challenges for their existing communities, not to mention the tax dollars that are leaving those cities. All of that can be eliminated by a simple phone call to HempMedsPX™. While legislative changes are required to allow nationwide access to marijuana-derived CBD oil, these changes are not required for the CBD-rich hemp oil products that HempMedsPX™ represents.A photo accompanying this release is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/prs/?pkgid=24497
"As a company, we believe that CBD-only legislation is a mistake. Medical Marijuana Inc. and HempMedsPX are 100% for marijuana legalization and 100% for hemp legalization, because we believe in the unlimited potential of the whole cannabis plant. Pushing towards full legalization is critically important for us because 'CBD only' is not the choice for many, and it is not what is ideal for everyone.
"However, until nationwide cannabis legalization is achieved, we believe in giving people without access another choice. We are launching the new 'DON'T MOVE' advertising campaign to further increase awareness of the CBD-rich hemp oil products we represent. Rather than move to another state, consumers need only to move to the nearest computer or smart phone to order online," concludes Vest.
Hemp has been part of human history since at least the Stone Age, and was used by ancient civilizations throughout the world for clothing, fiber, oil, and food. HempMedsPX™ will represent CBD-rich hemp oil products and launch their "DON'T MOVE" awareness campaign at the following industry events in April:
