SAN DIEGO, Aug. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) is pleased to announce to shareholders and the general public that The Depository Trust Company (DTC) has determined, effective immediately, to lift the deposit transaction restriction ("chill") and has resumed accepting deposits.
Michelle Sides, Chief Operating Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Medical Marijuana Inc., stated, "This has been a much longer and more strenuous process than we had anticipated; however, due to our legal team's incredible persistence, we are proud to announce that the 'chill' has finally been lifted. I would like to thank our team and our shareholders for their continued support."
A copy of the DTC "chill" lift letter can be found at OTCMarkets.com.
According to the U.S. government, every product derived from cannabis is categorized as marijuana—including hemp. We, therefore, use the word "marijuana" as an all-encompassing term to cover cannabis, medical marijuana, marijuana and hemp. We believe that "cannabis" should be the standard term used for all medical products; as the industry matures, we will be phasing out the words "medical marijuana" and "marijuana" from the company's vocabulary.
