Cannabis Science, Inc. (CBIS) Increases Equity Position to 50.1% in Michigan Green Technologies LLC, Positioning Company as Leader in Evolving Michigan Medical Cannabis and Hemp Industries

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTC-QB: CBIS), a U.S. Company specializing in cannabis formulation-based drug development and related consulting, signs a binding letter of intent with its existing Michigan partners, increasing Cannabis Science's equity position from 20% to 50.1% in its joint venture in the Michigan medical cannabis and hemp markets, Michigan Green Technologies LLC (MGT).

MGT is the leading resource for legislative initiatives and management consulting in Michigan with regard to cannabinoid-based drug development, nutraceuticals, food supplements, cosmeceuticals and food products.  As the State of Michigan progresses and matures its legislative environment, the prospects for delivering cannabis-based patient care are rapidly growing.  Michigan's open-minded approach to legislation is likely to make it a leading US state in which cannabis-based care is fully integrated into the general healthcare system, thus providing quality and safety to patients. MGT operations are expected to include the opening of a hemp-based product retail facility in early 2015, followed by medical cannabis operations.

"We have been working tirelessly with our partners in Michigan to be the best resource in the state, including work with key lawmakers.  With Cannabis Science's increased investment and our partners' long-standing relationships with hospitals, universities, and the state government, MGT is in an advantageous market position, which I believe translates into our being the strongest hemp and cannabis resource in the state for the benefit of Michigan's 10 million citizens," said Robert Kane, Director and CFO of Cannabis Science, Inc.

"We are grateful to our partners at Cannabis Science. Michigan is making significant progress in establishing its medical cannabis program and general hemp industry -- and we are playing an active role.  Cannabis Science and its scientific expertise make it the best partner for us here in Michigan.  We are thankful to Dr. Bray and the entire Cannabis Science team and are excited about our future together," stated Christ Gorges, Vice President, Michigan Green Technologies LLC.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
