PRESS CONFERENCE NOTIFICATION
The Law Office of Matthew Pappas, The Human Solution International, the Law Office of Anthony Curiale and The Swain Law Office will hold a press conference on Friday, July 3, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. at the Marriott Live located at 900 W. Olympic Blvd. in Los Angeles.
Attorney Matthew Pappas and retired L.A.P.D. Deputy Chief Steve Downing will discuss additional video of Santa Ana officers engaged in inappropriate behavior during raids of medical marijuana collectives and will provide an update on evidence of political corruption related to Santa Ana’s medical marijuana ordinance and lottery.  Patient Marla James will show a new electric wheelchair paid for and provided to her by a cannabis oil company in Colorado after people working for the company watched video of the May 26 Sky High collective raid in Santa Ana.  Thereafter, attorneys Anthony Curiale, James Kajtoch and Stefan Borst-Censullo will discuss a multi-million dollar state claim for damages filed on behalf of patients attacked during April and May raids in Santa Ana.
The Swain Law Office will announce the filing of a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Kansas Department for Children and Families and State of Kansas.  Earlier this year, cannabis oil activist and Crohn’s disease sufferer Shona Banda, who has successfully used cannabis oil to manage her disease and developed her own inexpensive method to extract it, had her home raided by police and son taken simply because she uses cannabis to treat her serious condition.  Thereafter, the State of Kansas arrested Ms. Banda and charged her with felony marijuana violations exposing her to a potential 30-year jail sentence.
Joe Grumbine, President of the Human Solution International, a human rights organization based in Southern Califonria, along with Rolland Gregg, one of five people charged by the federal government with violating federal law for growing marijuana for a family member with cancer and other seriously ill patients in Washington state, will discuss the federal government’s refusal to comply with provisions of section 358 of the 2015 federal appropriations act barring federal funds from being used to interfere with implementation of medical marijuana laws in 35 states.  Attorney Matthew Pappas will discuss the filing of a federal lawsuit seeking to enjoin the Justice Department from spending further money in the criminal case against Gregg.
Highlighting widespread corruption by city officials related to medical marijuana, former Planning Commissioner Dean Gray will discuss a state lawsuit filed against the City of Desert Hot Springs for corruption, Brown Act violations and civil rights violations along with evidence presented that the Mayor of Desert Hot Springs along with other city officials were directly involved with medical marijuana collective applicants in that city’s score-based ordinance that resulted in approval of the collective applicant the Mayor now works for.  Pappas will also discuss an additional federal lawsuit against the City of Anaheim filed by Tony Jalali seeking damages caused by Anaheim’s continuing attack on him after he won against the federal government and city in a forfeiture action in 2013.
While significant civil rights gains have been achieved in the last few weeks, seriously ill and disabled individuals continue to face discrimination and widespread corruption simply because medical cannabis is effective for them.  From taking children to jailing hundreds of thousands of Americans, the federal government as well as state and local governments continue to target patients.

We have grown from 45,000 followers to over 500,000 in less than a year,” said Serra Frank, MFMI’s Founding Director. “Everything I have ever seen Cheryl do has been historic and monumental in Cannabis reform. She is leading not only moms but the entire movement by making history in the media.”

Known as the Cannabis Queen of Beverly Hills, Cheryl Shuman celebrates her first year as Executive Director for MFMI on Mother’s Day this year. Cheryl says that she has, “been working with Serra for many years now and have always been inspired by her vision and dedication to families around the world. I am honored to lead such a dynamic and ambitious organization with such a clear and focused mission—improving the lives of the world’s most vulnerable, women and children. The MFMI partnership with my marketing firm creates a wonderful opportunity for women around the world to follow in the footsteps of Pauline Sabin from the 1930’s who led a group of dedicated women to overturn alcohol prohibition; today, we are making history working towards the end of cannabis prohibition.”

Cheryl Shuman, MarijuanaStocks.com, & Wolf of Weed Street Announce Official Launch of the ‘WolfShot’ Hemp Energy Shot

Cheryl Shuman, MarijuanaStocks.com, & Wolf of Weed Street Announce Official Launch of the ‘WolfShot’ Hemp Energy Shot

 

MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / June 29, 2015 / The newly formed team of Cheryl Shuman, MarijuanaStocks.com, and Wolf of Weed Street (the Team) are excited to announce the official launch of their first branded product, the ‘WolfShot.’ The Team has partnered with FBEC Worldwide Inc. (FBEC) to bring to market this hemp based energy shot that not only tastes great but also has all the added benefits of hemp packed into an easy to carry 2 ounce bottle. The WolfShot’s proprietary blend boasts FDA approved and CFR-21 tested ingredients that no other energy drink on the market currently has. Consumers can inquire about free samples onwww.wolfenergyshot.com, www.wolfofweedstreet.com, www.marijuanastocks.com, and www.fbecworldwideinc.com.

WolfShot holds a proprietary blend of herbal ingredients including hemp infused natural fruit extracts, probiotics, amino acids and caffeine. Typical energy drinks and caffeinated beverages can trigger spikes in blood sugar, stress levels and can even result in weight gain due to the metabolism of fat cells after consumption of traditional caffeine. FBEC Worldwide has agreements in place for exclusive use of the FDA approved new caffeine that would not only offer a healthier alternative but would make FBEC the only company allowed to make such claims with regard to the health impact of WolfShot. The exclusive formula that the company holds will also be protected from reverse engineering or being duplicated in any form.

Jason Spatafora (Wolf of Weed Street) stated, “I am excited to put my name and brand behind a product with such potential and one that I truly believe in. There is a huge market opportunity for hemp infused drinks in general and the energy shot market has proven to be extremely profitable, just ask 5 Hour Energy.”

Cheryl Shuman will be spearheading the PR efforts for the WolfShot and said, “Product placement and branding is one of my specialties. I have secured placements for products in FX’s Wilfred, CBS News, The New Ricki Lake Show, and much more. I am looking forward to getting behind a product with such an effective and unique formula.”

The Team will begin tapping into their vast networks utilizing and developing relationships to increase retail distribution and media exposure for the WolfShot. The Team anticipates the WolfShot to be revenue producing by August 2015.

Health Benefits of Hemp

-Hemp seeds offer a great dose of healthy fats in an ideal ratio; 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3s. Hemp seeds also pack the Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) variety of omega-6 fats, which helps to build anti-inflammatory hormones up. These GLA fats can be exceptionally beneficial for those with diabetes, metabolism issues, infections, or stress.

-Hemp seeds have an abundance of disease and aging fighting phytonutrients and antioxidants such as Vitamin E.

-Hemp seeds also provide consumers with useful minerals, such as iron, zinc, calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium.
