NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/02/13 -- Since the Presidential election many marijuana stocks have been steadily climbing. Three companies are positioned and primed to continue this trend. These three companies are MediSwipe Inc. (OTCQB: MWIP), Cannabis Science Inc. (OTCQB: CBIS), and Medbox Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MDBX)
Like it or not, over the past decade 18 states have approved the use of medicinal marijuana. That is over a third of the country. The masses have spoken. Next election season will have even more states on the ballot. It is quickly becoming a preferred alternative to traditional treatments for patients with debilitating diseases like cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, Crohn's disease, Parkinson's disease, ALS, or multiple sclerosis.
Colorado and Oregon have even passed laws for recreational use. A similar scenario would be the Netherlands in Europe. A large and organized group in Colorado has pushed for this law based on the opinion that it is considerably less dangerous than alcohol. Many cities across the U.S.A. have jumped on board in states where medicinal marijuana is legal. They have reduced the penalty from a felony to misdemeanor and some have made recreational use also.
The trend is clear. You can choose to sit on the sidelines or read about the following companies and see why we believe in their business model. The medical marijuana industry generated $1.7 billion in revenue nationwide last year, and is expected to grow to $8.9 billion by 2016, according to See Change Consulting Inc. of Olney, Md.
MediSwipe Inc. (OTCQB: MWIP)
MediSwipe, Inc. provides payment processing and financial services to medical businesses. The Company offers a spectrum of transaction processing solutions using traditional, Internet point-of-sale, e-commerce, and mobile (wireless) terminals in conjunction with industry alliance partners. This company has experience in providing payment and financial services for medical marijuana companies and is in a perfect spot to benefit from these new markets.
In addition, MediSwipe Inc. is in the process of spinning off 800Commerce Inc., which engages in the development and distribution of wireless applications through mobile marketing platforms that enable any business to integrate brands, promotions, video, and other digital content through the Internet and mobile devices. All shareholders of MediSwipe Inc. will receive a share dividend with the completion of the spinoff.
This company stands to be the best of the bunch. We believe in this company so much, we actually alerted Mediswipe Inc. to our early alert VIP members on Oct. 12 when it was at .0025/share.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
