Medbox Begins Operations in Oregon, New York, Illinois and Nevada

July 22nd

HOLLYWOOD, CA — Medbox, Inc. (OTC Markets: MDBX) (www.medboxinc.com), a leader in providing consulting services and patented inventory control, compliance, and dispensing systems to the medical and retail industries, announced that they will begin providing their consulting services to interested parties in the states of Oregon, New York, Illinois and Nevada.

House Bill 3460, creates a registry of businesses that sell medical marijuana.

July 22nd

SPRINGFIELD, IL — When the Illinois legislature passed the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act in May, it capped a decade-long push for medical marijuana in the state, and even though it creates only a temporary medical marijuana pilot program, medical marijuana advocates called the bill a “great first step.”

Illinois patients needed only the signature of Democrat Governor Pat Quinn on the pages of House Bill 1 for medical marijuana to begin moving towards reality, making Illinois the 19th medical marijuana state, even if it is only for four years.
