Mobile Broadcasting Holding, Inc., announces that it has completed acquisition of Medically Minded, LLC, a company focused on providing medical cannabis, medical cannabis-related products, and medical tourist services. In a move to quickly organize its operations, the Company has installed its new president, Ken Sobel. As a consequence of this move, Stephen A. Jones, the principal shareholder of Medically Minded, will now assume the CEO position for the Company.
Stated veteran medical executive and CEO Stephen A. Jones, “We’re excited the acquisition is complete and that Mr. Ken Sobel will now assume the reins of Medically Minded as president. With Mr. Sobel’s impressive qualifications and experience in the quickly growing cannabis industry, we can now lay the groundwork for building a first-class cannabis operation which will provide a spectrum of integrated services.”
Medically Minded’s new president Ken Sobel is an attorney licensed in California and Arizona for 35 years and has been a consultant, cannabis entrepreneur, and a much sought after speaker in cannabis business and law. Ken has been instrumental in crafting the U.S. Virgin Islands’ new medical Cannabis legislation. Operationally, Ken has established two medical marijuana dispensaries and a cultivation facility. Moreover, Ken was the Co-Founder and Board Member for the three major dispensary organizations in Arizona. He received the highest rating for an attorney (AV) by Martindale-Hubbell, and has been the recipient of the San Diego Magazine’s “Best of San Diego – Attorneys” for the past four years.
As a patient rights advocate, Ken was the first attorney in the U.S. to sue a state cannabis regulatory body and obtain an order adding PTSD to the list of debilitating conditions appropriate for cannabis use. Ken originally became involved in medical marijuana when he lived in Southern California and his family became the primary caregiver for his mother-in-law who passed from cancer in 2003. In 2008, he became the primary caregiver for his father in Tucson, Arizona, who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease, and later passed away from cancer. These situations reinforced Ken’s commitment to ensuring that other similarly situated patients had safe access to cannabis.
“The climate for medical cannabis legalization is perfect. The leadership wants it. The community wants it. A lot of people have been working diligently behind the scenes to create the supportive environment which now exists in the U.S. Virgin Islands,” stated CEO Stephen Jones. “We look forward to utilizing Mr. Sobel’s experience in the cannabis industry to establish a tourist-friendly, full-service state-of-the-art medical cannabis company that will cultivate and dispense medical cannabis across the U.S. Virgin Islands. We also plan to serve as wholesale distributors to other dispensaries of the islands.”
Currently, 23 states and the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.) have legalized medical use and cultivation of cannabis. The U.S. Territories of Guam and Puerto Rico have also implemented medical cannabis programs. U.S. Virgin Island legislation passage is expected to occur in March/April 2016.
