Miami, FL, June 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MJ Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:MJNE) (“MJ Holdings” or the “Company”) today announced the launch of FindaMarijuanaDoctor.com. The site is a joint venture between the Company and Jason Spatafora, an Internet and social media entrepreneur, who owns the FindaMarijuanaDoctor.com domain name, founded MarijuanaStocks.com and is known by the Twitter handle @WolfofWeedStreet.
. "It's very exciting to conceptualize an idea and see it materialize in a way that benefits both patients and Doctors in a meaningful way,” said Spatafora.
“During the initial launch phase of the site, the joint venture will focus on on-boarding doctors who are already certifying patients for use of medical marijuana; however the larger opportunity will be in the second phase when they will prepare the broader population of doctors’ to better serve their existing patient bases, and to improve the overall state of medicine by including medical marijuana as an alternative medical option to manage the 25 medical conditions for which States’ have passed laws legalizing its use” said Adam Laufer, co-CEO of MJ Holdings.
As it stands today, there are 21 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories Puerto Rico and Guam, that allow for the use of the euphoric ingredient known as THC in marijuana and 15 additional states that have approved the use of CBD strains of marijuana with little to no THC, for medical purposes.
Approximately 64 million Americans suffer from conditions for which marijuana use has been approved by States, despite being illegal under Federal law. These conditions include, but are not limited to, Alzheimer’s, Arthritis, Migraines, Parkinson’s, PTSD, AIDS, Anorexia, Epilepsy and Cancer. What this means for many doctors, is that up to 20% or 1 in 5 of their existing patients could potentially benefit from the use of medical marijuana, but presently only a few hundred doctors nationwide are engaged in recommending marijuana to their patients.
Features included in the FindaMarijuanaDoctor.com website are: search tools for patients to locate doctors, scheduling tools for doctors to book patient appointments, tools for patients to review and rate doctors, and information and videos for doctors and medical professionals seeking to learn more about the use and recommendation of marijuana for medical use. The site will be free for patients and for doctors, with premium paid services offered to both user groups.
