(OTCQB: CBIS), a U.S. Company specializing in cannabis formulation-based drug development and related consulting, congratulates the U.S. Congress for making serious Medical Cannabis History by pulling this fiscal year's funding for any DOJ actions that would stop legal state medical cannabis programs and operations.

The President announced his intention to sign the bill into law in the coming days. Cannabis Science's recently announced expansion within the California medical cannabis market is even more compelling, and patients in California and other legal medical cannabis states can rest easy that they will not be denied needed medicines.
"When President Obama signs this landmark bipartisan spending bill, the federal government will have taken the most significant stand to date to protect state medical cannabis programs from federal interference. This is great news for Cannabis Science, particularly in light of the Company's substantial new investment in California operations, and it is incredibly impactful for patients," said Chad S. Johnson, Esq., Director, COO, & General Counsel of Cannabis Science, Inc.
