Miami, FL, July 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MJ Holdings, Inc.

"As MJ Holdings has been a part of the phenomenally rapid growth of the cannabis industry in Colorado, we know that there is both a demonstrated urgency in Washington for capital support for the real estate component of this industry, as well as a call for mature seasoned financial investors to provide their leadership experience to help businesses to establish themselves," said Shawn Chemtov, MJ Holdings co-CEO and co-chairman.
