CannaBANK™ today announced a purchase and assignment to Medical Marijuana Inc. of 50% of the shares of stock in Cannabis Marketing Group LLC (CMG) for the purpose of expanding comprehensive marketing services to the cannabis and hemp industries.
The stake in Cannabis Marketing Group is capitalized at over $200,000 and consists of marketing technology, intellectual property, server and IP address wills. With these assets and technological property, Medical Marijuana Inc plans to launch the CannaMaps and Cannabis Awareness websites.
According to Dina Elliot, Managing Partner of CMG, in a statement released today: “Teaming with Medical Marijuana is a natural fit.” Deep industry knowledge is important when working with any client and this new partnership will provide expertise in educating the world on the uses of hemp and aggressively marketing the products MJNA and its partners will bring to the world.
Representatives at CannaBANK™ and Medical Marijuana Inc were also enthusiastic about the transaction. Management was quoted as saying: “This new partnership will squarely place us in the world of social commerce — this company has developed what would have taken us quite a while to accomplish on our own.”
Cannabis Marketing Group is comprised of a super-dynamic group of individuals with many excellent products and services to bring to Medical Marijuana Inc The “CannaMaps” site of Medical Marijuana Inc will soon list every dispensary, every collective and delivery service in the medical cannabis industry in the USA. In addition this site will also list all local County, State and Federal ordinances relating to medical cannabis — and soon they will have this throughout the world.
This new site will be a virtual encyclopedia of cannabis related information made available for many different users — doctors, medical clinics, individuals seeking medical attention, where to get more information in a local area, etc. The site will not be opinionated, nor will it be fragmented — it will give factual information that can be sourced back to the origin. The goal is to create trust in the informational content so that people will have complete and factual information available through the internet in terms of cannabis and hemp laws in the united states from a federal, state, county and local perspective. The site will also track all upcoming bills and the sponsors or the past bills and guidelines to the sponsors of the new proposed bills and guidelines. Information is everything and CannaBANK™ and Medical Marijuana Inc seek to have every person in the United States understand hemp and cannabis laws and uses.
The announcement today will also launch Medical Marijuana Inc’s “Jobs Created Counter” which will count all the jobs created, directly and indirectly, by the work of CannaBANK™ and its partners. Also launched will be the CannaBANK™ “Lives Saved Counter” which will list all the lives saved or improved by CannaBANK™ and its affiliates — CannaBANK™ would like to invite everyone to partake in international well-being counters that the organization is about to launch. These counters will be completely open and transparent — they will show links back to the appropriate information sources. All such intellectual property shall be transferred to Medical Marijuana Inc over the next several months.
CannaBANK™ believes that Americans need to know their rights and the laws that govern them — they also need to know what effect this movement is having on people’s health and their economic well-being — so this will be an awareness program rather than an educational program.
Cannabis Medical Group will also be in charge of joint media publications.
CannaBANK’s mission is to help create a sustainable economy which in turn helps create a sustainable planet offering health and economic freedom through education and awareness.
