Medbox, Inc. Protects Its Image as a Leader in Sensible Medication Dispensing
Date:11/2/2012

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medbox, Inc. (Pinksheets: MDBX) (www.medboxinc.com), through its affiliate companies, has filed a lawsuit in the State of Arkansas against Jerry Cox and the Family Council Action Committee (FCAC) for their use of the company's trademarked imagery in a derogatory fashion during a press conference objecting to a ballot measure that would allow the prescribing of alternative medicine to patients that can demonstrate need. During the press conference, Cox stood next to a cardboard cutout of a Medbox machine and proclaimed, "It's just yet another way to put more marijuana in the hands of the public. These machines … don't run 8 to 5. They run 24/7".

Medbox filed the lawsuit because they believe that Jerry Cox and the FCAC have tarnished the image and the technology of the company. In a statement, which was also sent to Jerry Cox and the FCAC, a Medbox officer rebuked, "Our machines are used for controlled and compliant dispensing of traditional medications in assisted living facilities, hospitals, urgent care centers and pharmacies, as well as in alternative medicine dispensaries – where the systems are placed behind the counter and are an important tool in improving and maintaining compliance. We believe that the negative image portrayed in this press conference has harmed our company."

Medbox, Inc. has retained Holleman & Associates, PA, of Arkansas, who has filed orders to seek injunctive relief, damages for trademark infringement, and defamation against Cox and the FCAC.

"The medical marijuana industry cannot justify the need for 24-hour access to the product, and that is why the company does not allow ANY of our machines to be used in that capacity in this industry. Medbox stands for transparency, legal compliance, and responsible behavior," stated Dr. Bruce Bedrick, CEO of Medbox, Inc. "Mr. Cox has falsely portrayed that our company and machines are part of a problem when in fact our technology is part of the solution - by providing secure means of dispensing sensitive medications like medical marijuana, behind-the-counter and at the control of clinic staff."
