Marijuana Vending Machines Race: Marijuana Stocks to Watch (ERBB), (HSCC), (MDBX)

Point Roberts, WA/ New York, NY - June 10, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com staff: Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors reports on Marijuana stocks in the race for Marijuana vending machines.

According to an article today in the DailyMail in article entitled, “Marijuana vending machines coming to a store near you?”Entrepreneurs are looking to cash in on the marijuana vending machine market in Colorado and Washington State, where marijuana was recently legalized. Retail sales are expected to start in Colorado by January 2014 with Washington State following shortly after.
Several public companies have entered the space, including Medbox Inc., (OTC: MDBX) , Tranzbyte Corporation (ERBB OTC Markets) and Homeland Security Corporation (HSCC:OTC Markets) . Medbox and Tranzbyte are further ahead in development, with Medbox having a patent on their design that uses biometrics but Homeland Security Corporation is also betting on the added value of their biometric security technology.
Homeland Security Corporation (HSCC: OTC Markets) notes on its new website,
“We are first and foremost a security and surveillance organization. One of our evolving goals is to be the premier MMJ/MJ compliance and security systems innovator for the cannabis and hemp industry, leveraging our team of highly experienced, educated, and seasoned professionals. The MMJ industry is one of the most scrutinized industries in the world. From seed to sale all aspects of the MMJ industry including growers, producers, and dispensaries are under twenty-four hour recorded surveillance.”
The company also goes on to say, “Over the past three years our HSCC representative (Gary Williams) was based in Colorado working directly with a leading MMJ compliance organization, the Colorado Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division (MMED), and also with other state regulatory agencies.” More info: http://www.hsccsecurity.com/MMJ-Consulting.html
Medbox Inc., (OTC: MDBX), the leader so far, features patented systems that dispense medication to individuals based on biometric identification (fingerprint sample). The stock has had a wild ride for an OTC stock as investors bet on the future of legalized Marijuana and the future of vending machines.
Investorideas.com Newswire Tranzbyte Corporation (ERBB OTC Markets) announced in April it will begin distribution of its Automated Marijuana Vending Machine within qualifying states and locales beginning next quarter. Although some of the specific details of the machine's operation must be kept under wraps for competitive reasons, the company has been at work for the past year identifying and working with a vending machine manufacturer that has the technological background and capability to exclusively deliver the Altitude Organix "Green Machine" – designed specifically to serve the exploding cannabis industry in the 21st Century with a complement of exclusively available Zazzz™ products coupled with state-of-the-art security enhancements.

Biodefense Stock Q&A; PositiveID (OTCBB: PSID) Chairman and CEO Discusses New Firefly Dx Detection System

Point Roberts, WA - June 6, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, a leader in research for independent investors presents an exclusive Q&A interview with Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and CEO of PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB: PSID) discussing the recent launch of the development of the Firefly Dx detection system. Firefly is a portable, hand-held, point-of-need molecular diagnostic system, designed to provide test results from sample input through reporting of results in less than 15 to 30 minutes depending on the type of test performed.

Q: Investorideas.com
Firefly is based on technology from your M-BAND (Microfluidics-based Bioagent Networked Detector) airborne bio-threat detector; can you explain the evolution of this technology and what inspired it?
A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Throughout meetings with past and potential new customers representing a variety of different industries, we listened to their needs and the circumstances they often face including military field deployments, evolving conditions in remote areas ,agricultural testing, etc and it became clear that there is a real and pressing need for portable, handheld, rapid biological testing solutions.
We have been able to evolve and miniaturize the patented technology advances we’ve achieved in the development of our M-BAND, which is basically a “lab-in-a-box,” and Dragonfly cartridge based systems to create a handheld, battery-powered, rapid biological testing system that can communicate test results from sample purification to final results in less than 30 minutes to a SMART phone or personal computer. Furthermore, the system is designed to be easy to use and does not require a high level of technical expertise to operate.
Q: Investorideas.com
According to your April 29, 2013 press release, Firefly is expected to quickly process human and agricultural samples to provide accurate confirmation of biological threats via a smart-phone application. What is a realistic time frame to see this app available to military in the field?
A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
The business strategy that we have employed for our biological detection technologies in the past and intend to continue moving forward is to innovate and develop novel technologies for markets in detection and diagnostics, and to partner with large firms that have a foothold in the market with scalable manufacturing capabilities. We believe that with the appropriate funding partner, we could complete the development of handheld prototypes and cartridges and have the devices ready for field testing in approximately 12 months.
Q: Investorideas.com
What biological agents can the Firefly Dx system detect?
A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
The assay format of the Firefly Dx is polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using Real-time TaqMan® probe-based chemistry and is currently adapted to detect both DNA and RNA targets. PositiveID is currently developing diagnostic panels for the Firefly Dx against measles, respiratory diseases, and Arboviral diseases. Because the Firefly Dx instrument is a universal cartridge-based system, however, it will be able to accommodate new assays or panels very rapidly. Some examples of organisms for which we have previously developed immunoassays include anthrax, small pox, various forms of influenza, and MRSA, among many others.
Q: Investorideas.com
Can you give us an update on your M-BAND system and the status of BioWatch Generation 3?
A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
As you know, on January 25, 2013, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security released a draft request for proposal (“RFP”) for Stage 1 of BioWatch Generation 3. At that time it was announced that the final RFP for Stage 1 would be released in the government’s third quarter of fiscal 2013, which ends June 30th. If that timeline holds, the RFP is expected to be awarded in late 2013 and have a performance period of 18 months. We look forward to the release of the final RFP and will keep our investors informed of any updates.
