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. It is currently trading at .015, a gain of 500%. To find out more about our VIP early alert service, please visit: http://www.firstpennypicks.com/vip-membership/

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in.
