LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cannabis Medical Solutions Inc. ( http://www.cannabismedsolutions.com/ ) (OTCBB:CMSI), a leading company specializing in merchant payment solutions and financial products for the medical marijuana and health care industries, today announced an agreement for the development of a biometrics kiosk terminal in which medical marijuana patients in all approved states can register, order, pay and receive medication from the licensed dispensary.

The addition of the new biometrics kiosk and payment system is to be manufactured by one of the largest medical self service kiosk providers in the United States. The patient will register at the terminal one time only. After the initial registration, the patient, once identity is verified through a finger scan, may access the kiosk library of all medicine and strains available at the dispensary location. Once the desired medication is selected, the patient chooses the amount, payment method and will receive a bio-thermal label and receipt to seal the medicine with his patient ID. Actual medicine is dispensed by the caregiver behind the wellness counter.

"We expect to be deploying our first biometrics terminals to dispensaries by late April of this year. We have tried to listen and learn as to the needs of not only the dispensaries but the patients most importantly. We believe these kiosks offer many benefits including patient security as well as financial payment security to the owners. The Cannabis Medical Terminals can be leased to any dispensary owner for less than $1,000 a month, regardless of credit, with a buy-out after one year. Once installed, it will now be almost impossible to have instances of credit card or employee fraud at our locations. Further, the identification, selection and payment model with the patient receiving the dose from behind the counter and examining before sealed with our tamperproof label, far exceeds the model of an actual machine dispensing medicine which may be old, have mold in the container or not what the patient thought he paid for," stated Michael Friedman, acting CEO for Cannabis Medical Solutions Inc.
