MediSwipe Inc. Announces Nation's First Ever Medical Marijuana Online Search-and-Booking Platform Reaches Second Round of Intuit Super Bowl Commercial Competition
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/30/13 -- MediSwipe Inc. (www.MediSwipe.com) (OTCQB: MWIP), the leader in Compassionate Care Technology Solutions for the medicinal marijuana industry today announced that www.MarijuanaDoctors.com has been enlisted in Intuit's small business Super Bowl commercial competition in hopes of legitimizing the industry for the better and reaching out to uneducated patients. The nation's first online search-and-booking platform, MarijuanaDoctors.com, has made it to the second round in the Intuit small business competition for a Super Bowl commercial slot. This has been considered a very large step in the company's chances of making its voice heard to the entire cannabis community and is part of a continued effort to further legitimize the medical marijuana industry. The only question remains if the Intuit Company is going to continue to allow Marijuana Doctors to raise the ladder in the vote standings and become one step closer to an achieved opportunity and unique chance for the largest of all media exposure for medical cannabis.
MediSwipe (MWIP.OB) recently signed an exclusive license and formed a joint alliance with The Medical Cannabis Network to operate, market and administrate the premier online physician and patient registry www.MarijuanaDoctors.com. The mega-portal is known as the country's largest and only search-and-booking platform that allows patients to locate a reputable doctor who recommends cannabis within a respective geographic area. The site www.MarijuanaDoctors.com was founded to act as the trusted gateway for patients searching for medical marijuana treatment in legal medical marijuana states, now totaling twenty. The unique and technically advanced portal provides patients a variety of online services in selecting a doctor and setting an appointment for a medical marijuana evaluation including detailed profile information, scheduling information, and ratings and reviews.
MarijuanaDoctors.com is dedicated to legitimizing the process for the booking and selection of medical marijuana doctors by standardizing the criteria and selection process for doctors allowed to join our trusted network of quality physicians.
MediSwipe in cooperation with MCN will continue to focus on providing comprehensive scheduling and marketing services for doctors that are both already established medical marijuana physicians as well as those looking to expand their practices into alternative medicine. Users of the site must be 18 years of age to use the appointment booking services. Additionally, the information provided on MarijuanaDoctors.com is designed to complement, not replace, the relationship between a patient and his/her own physician.
C.O.O. of the Medical Cannabis Network and MarijuanaDoctors.com John Nicolazzo said, "We here at MCN have waited a long time to mainstream advertise. This opportunity not only provides us with just that, but also offers up a chance for all patients to understand how the medical marijuana evaluation process is conducted. We constantly receive questions coming from patients on how the process works, so this once-in-a-lifetime chance finally would allow medical marijuana patients to have a true understanding of how the medical marijuana industry is regulated."
Although the rise and overall popularity of medical marijuana has skyrocketed, the real message cannot be ignored or forgotten. Although Intuit has allowed this company to advance to the second round, it should not be seen as a miraculous or head-turning event, it should be seen as the start of something amazing within the medical marijuana industry. By allowing such an established and well-rounded patient support portal to advertise and be allowed a chance at a once-in-a-lifetime advertising slot, that is a matter of equal opportunity and mutual understanding.
"We are extremely excited that our partners at MCN have elevated the recognition of MarijuanaDoctors.com to the level of international exposure. The fact we have reached the second round of consideration for a commercial spot during the Super Bowl shows the validity of our business model within the sector, and by creating a true forum where patients can receive treatment from qualified and compassionate doctors using the platform, we expect to one day be the only legitimate source for big data surrounding this industry," stated B. Michael Friedman, CEO for MediSwipe Inc.
