Timing for Nuvilex, Inc (OTCQB: NVLX) Shareholders May Be Perfect With Growing Medical Marijuana Movement

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/26/13 -- The OTC Journal, the longest running electronic newsletter focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, notes Nuvilex's (OTCQB: NVLX) efforts to study the potential applications of its proprietary encapsulation technology to enhance the efficacy of cannabidiol (CBD)-based cancer treatments may line up perfectly with the Medical Marijuana legalization movement in the US.

At present, Marijuana use is estimated at $54 billion in the US. It is legal for prescribed use in 18 states. Two states, Colorado and Washington, have legalized marijuana use for recreational purposes. The Justice Department has clearly stated a "no prosecutions" policy for prescribed medicinal use. No such statement has been forthcoming regarding recreational use, and interested parties are anxiously awaiting clarification from Attorney General Eric Holder.

The 2012 elections created a storm of interest in the sector when voters in Washington and Colorado legalized small amounts of marijuana for recreational use in their states. About 20 small public companies enjoyed major price and volume appreciation -- anywhere from 100% to 2500%.

5 states currently have pending legislation to legalize medicinal marijuana use: Illinois, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. New Hampshire became the 19th to legalize physician prescribed Marijuana use this past week.

Two states have recently decriminalized the possession of small amounts: Texas and Vermont.

A comprehensive drug policy report, 400 pages in length, was released by the Organization of American States this past May. The report gave considerable weight to the legalization or de-penalizing of Marijuana. The report points out the US has spent many billions attempting to stop the flows of Marijuana with little effect.

Since Nuvilex (OTCQB: NVLX) completed a recent financing and procured the final global rights to the encapsulation technology for all cancer treatments, the company can now vigorously pursue its use with a Cannabinoid therapies that are growing in popularity for cancer treatment.

The coming 2013 elections are likely to bring new legalization initiatives and create a resurgence of interest in the stocks of Cannabis related companies.

Nuvilex (OTCQB: NVLX) shareholders could be positioned to benefit greatly as the company continues to explore this potential application for its technology.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
