HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medicine Dispensing Systems, a
subsidiary of Medbox, Inc. (Pinksheets: MDBX) ( in
partnership with Kind Clinics, LLC is preparing to assist companies and
individuals open legal and fully compliant medical marijuana clinics in the
state of Massachusetts. The company will be demonstrating its patented
technology to the media next week at its new office location at 81 Speen St.
Natick, Ma.

With Massachusetts' passage of the medical marijuana voter initiative on
November 6, 2012, five out of six New England states representing 91% of the
regional population have legalized marijuana for medical purposes, only Live
Free or Die New Hampshire is the holdout. Massachusetts' 6.4 million
residents join 17 states and the District of Columbia representing 93.8
million U.S. residents. With Massachusetts on board 32.5% (100.4 million
residents) of the U.S. population have access to medical marijuana.

With 6.5 million residents, Massachusetts is the 14th largest state in the
U.S. but due to its small size, it is the 4th most densely populated
jurisdiction (3rd most densely populated state), behind DC, Rhode Island, and
New Jersey. The Massachusetts legislation authorized only 35
dispensaries.This will provide Massachusetts dispensary operators with an
exceptionally high ratio of patients per outlets – likely the highest in the

"More regulated states like Arizona, Connecticut, and now Massachusetts,
obviously have the advantage as to being the states that may have the least
amount of abuse within the industry, which is why Medbox has taken such a
strong interest in helping develop those state's programs", stated Dr. Bruce
Bedrick, CEO of Medbox, Inc. "On election day we also witnessed the first time
any state has legalized marijuana for recreational purposes. Washington State
and Colorado both approved measures to allow the sale of marijuana to anyone
over the age of 21. While we monitor how the federal government is going to
view that, Medbox will be focused on states with medical marijuana programs.
With the recreational element now at play, for once medical marijuana
supporters will be looked at more favorably, even by conservatives. All this
bodes well for the industry in Massachusetts and other tightly controlled
medical marijuana states."
