  • Lack Of Professionalism At Medical Marijuana, Inc.

    Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTCPK:MJNA) Internal Investor Relations Contact, Perry Coleman, engaged in a most unbelievable display of personal attacks on the evening of October 3rd via Twitter, perhaps mistakenly thinking that it might be anonymous.

    It began with this tweet:

    He misspelled my name, but clearly it was a personal attack, and it was also very dishonest. I have never applied for a job at the company. His misunderstanding revolves around a webinar that I had scheduled with Charles Vest, who at the time was the V.P. of Corporate Communications. He has subsequently left the company, but the goal of the webinar was to allow the company to discuss its CBD-based products.

    In any event, the barrage from Mr. Coleman persisted through the evening, consisting of another 20 posts, most riddled with poor grammar and all disparaging me with strange innuendos. For example:

    There is little doubt that this was Perry. How do I know? There was a website with the same logo and name that was taken down. I saved a screenshot of the site as well as the domain registration:

    I expect more from a person who acts as an I.R representative for a publicly-traded company. MJNA, which has been substantially tardy in its last OTC Disclosures, does a terrible job on this front, and perhaps it should consider its personnel. And, no, I don't want the job!
