LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire -12/13/11)- Marijuana, Inc. (Pinksheets: HEMP.PK - News) is proud to announce the first event covered by MarijuanaIncTV LIVE as its film crew documented The Art of Mary Jane Magazine/Cash Hyde Foundation well attended Fundraiser held at actor and filmmaker Sean Cook's Bel Air, California estate, on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2011.
In depth coverage of the event will be made available at www.marijuanainc.tv (site under construction). Industry insiders, notably actor and comedian Tommy Chong, arrived from across the country to embrace and contribute to the cause of the nation's youngest medical marijuana patient, Cash Hyde, who was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer when he was only two years old.
Cash, now four, has responded well to a cannabis protocol designed to help ease recovery from ongoing radiation treatments, a scenario where traditional medicines had been ineffective. The Hyde family decided on the use of cannabis for their child after weeks of watching his body failing.
Father Mike Hyde stated that the cannabis protocol has dramatically improved Cash's ability to eat, sleep and regain bodily function. Marijuana Inc.'s philanthropic commitment to the Cash Hyde Fund for Cancer Awareness was emphasized by a Platinum level donation to the event, and continues following an initial stock donation, with ongoing monthly donations through the calendar year of 2012.
Marijuana, Inc.'s contribution did not end with the stock donation; they also gifted over 100 "King of Pot" half ounce silver commemorative coins for attendees' gift bags. Marijuana, Inc.'s CEO, Bruce Perlowin, stated, "We wanted to help make the event a success not only for Cashy but to bring awareness of the benefits of medical marijuana to cancer patients nationwide. We put people first -- profits second as our corporate culture, and by leading by example we can make a difference. Through our friends, The Art of Mary Jane Magazine, Tommy Chong, Sean Cook and everyone who took the time to attend and participate in the silent auction at the event, we brought new attention and funding for Cash's fight for life."
