Los Angeles (Vocus) May 14, 2010 -- Cannabis Medical Solutions Inc. (www.cannabismedsolutions.com) (OTCBB:CMSI), a leading company specializing in both brick-and-mortar and online merchant payment solutions and financial security products for medical marijuana dispensaries and high-risk merchant accounts and services, today announced that the Company is presently in negotiations to acquire and open at least two medical marijuana dispensaries within the state of California.
"The network of medical marijuana dispensaries that CMSI has created by providing financial services to our clients in three states over the last six months, has presented a unique opportunity for our company and shareholders.

We are presently in the due diligence process and seeking legal advice with regard to federal legislation that would allow us to follow this path and provide a proven model of ownership, financial accountability to reporting state agencies and be within federal and state guidelines," stated Kyle Gotshalk, CEO for Cannabis Medical Solutions.
