LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- Verde Science, Inc. (OTCQB: VRCI), a company focused on providing advisory services to established, licensed collectives and growers in the burgeoning medical marijuana industry, and a roll out of a Research and Development opportunity in Canada, is pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Pelosi, Jr. to the Company's advisory board. Mr. Pelosi has 16 years of experience in advising emerging and Fortune 500 companies in the areas of finance, infrastructure, sustainability and public policy. Mr. Pelosi will be a guest today on Business Rockstars (www.businessrockstars.com), a national AM and online radio network with more than 30 million listeners.

Mr. Pelosi is a renowned speaker on environmental policies that encourage individuals and local governments to take a more active role in conserving natural resources and reducing carbon footprints. Mr. Pelosi has spoken at conferences in Stockholm, Milan, and Amsterdam and is a contributor to Inside the Minds: Navigating Green Construction and Energy Initiatives, an anthology which provides an overview of the efforts being made to invest in renewable energy and green infrastructure.

Mr. Pelosi commented, "I am please to be joining the Verde Science team. Like Verde Science, I believe that great strides will be made in the next few years in terms of harnessing the true, measurable medicinal benefits of cannabis products. Verde and I both believe that applying traditional biotech strategies in developing specific uses of cannabis will lead to breakthroughs in treating a wide variety of medical problems. In the near future, we believe that through scientific innovation, smoking cannabis products will become obsolete and that its powerful benefits will be delivered in more traditional forms to treat disease and other medical conditions. I look forward to helping guide Verde Science in navigating the ever evolving legal and regulatory landscape as the cannabis market matures in the United States. Verde Science is positioned to be a significant and positive contributor in this industry."
Currently, Mr. Pelosi serves as Senior Vice President of Business Development at InfoUSA where he is responsible for identifying acquisitions and organizing programs to develop effective strategies for reducing waste and promoting greener practices in the market research industry. Mr. Pelosi advises other companies, including NASA Ames Research Center and AirPatrol Corporation, on a variety of infrastructure projects to promote both sustainable development and security.
Mr. Pelosi is a founding member of Cisco Connected Urban Development and, under the direction of Cisco CEO John Chambers, Mr. Pelosi worked with San Francisco, Birmingham, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Lisbon, Madrid and Seoul to attempt to demonstrate how network connectivity might reduce carbon emissions in urban environments.
In 2003, Mr. Pelosi was appointed by San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown to the city's Commission on the Environment, which was responsible for developing policies and programs in recycling, toxics reduction, environmental justice, energy efficiency, commute alternatives, climate change, and the city's urban forest. Mr. Pelosi served as President of the Commission.
Verde Science CEO Harp Sangha added, "Mr. Pelosi has been and will continue to be a valuable member of the Verde Science advisory team. His experience and financial connections will bring value to our efforts and his vision of how this market will develop and evolve over the next several years matches ours, and we look forward to significant contributions from his involvement."
