LOS ANGELES, CA, Jan. 17, 2014 — Medical Jane, LLC, a leading technology company in the cannabis industry, has officially launched their redesigned website geared towards educating the masses about the potential therapeutic benefits of cannabis.As it stands, cannabis is classified as a Schedule 1 drug under the US Controlled Substances Act passed in 1970. Substances with this classification are said to be addictive, dangerous, and have no accepted medical value by definition.“Despite some lingering social stigmas, general interest in medical marijuana is growing rapidly. The foundations of cannabis prohibition are beginning to crumble.” – Matthew PriceNonetheless, it seems that both science and public opinion disagree with the government in this regard. Clinical studies suggest that medical cannabis may have a number of health benefits. Further, a Gallup Poll released in October found that 58 percent of Americans now support cannabis legalization.“It will take a community effort to combat the anti-cannabis propaganda that has run rampant for decades,” says Matthew Price, Founder & CEO of Medical Jane™. “Despite some lingering social stigmas, general interest in medical marijuana is growing rapidly. The foundations of cannabis prohibition are beginning to crumble.”According to Mr. Price, the company intends to unite the cannabis community through providing educational tools based on scientific research and professional expert opinions, in an attempt to challenge cannabis prohibition in the United States.Medical Jane Empowers Medical Cannabis PatientsAn FBI crime report released in September revealed that 749,824 arrests were made for cannabis-related offenses in 2012. Extrapolating that number, we find that one non-violent cannabis arrest occurred every 42 seconds in the United States. Mr. Price explains that this stems from both misinformation and a lingering social stigma that has plagued the cannabis community for decades.In turn, he has designed Medical Jane’s new website to provide users with a plethora of educational tools. There you will find interactive genetic trees for each cannabis strain. Similarly the newly-released Cannabis Classroom™provides medical marijuana patients with ailment-specific cannabinoid health articles. Each of these tools are intertwined into a new social community, allowing like-minded individuals to connect and share their experiences.“This is just the beginning,” Mr. Price insists. “We have plans to release more ground-breaking website features for the cannabis community each and every week.”
