Cannabis Science, Inc. Appoints Harvard Law School Graduate Chad S. Johnson, Esq. As A Member Of The Company's Board Of Directors And As General Counsel

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cannabis Science Inc., (OTC:CBIS) announced today the appointment of Harvard Law School Graduate Chad S. Johnson, Esq., as a member of the company's Board of Directors and as General Counsel, adding significant expertise to Cannabis Science's management team in business development, legal & regulatory compliance, and for-profit and non-profit partnerships.

About Chad S. Johnson, Esq.

Mr. Johnson, a native of Emporia, Kansas, began his professional career in 1992 after graduating from Harvard College and Harvard Law School.  Following a federal judicial clerkship, Mr. Johnson joined the law firm Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP, where he practiced for several years in federal and state financial institution regulatory law with a focus on mergers and acquisitions, serving such clients as Citigroup, Sumitomo Bank, and Travelers.  He also performed substantial pro bono work for national LGBT and HIV and AIDS organizations while at Skadden.  In 2000, Mr. Johnson left his firm to serve as the Deputy Director of Business Leader Outreach and Deputy Director of Gay and Lesbian Issues for the Gore/Lieberman campaign, after which he served as Executive Director of the National Stonewall Democrats, the only national LGBT gay Democrats organization in the nation.  In addition to other legal and business endeavors, Mr. Johnson co-founded the World AIDS Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to document and preserve the global history of AIDS, to inspire action today to improve the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS (and their family, friends, and communities), and to strengthen the spectrum of innovative initiatives to find a cure, and more recently in 2012 co-founded with Timothy Ray Brown (the Berlin Patient) and David Purdy, the only organization with a sole mission of finding an HIV cure: the Timothy Ray Brown Foundation of the World AIDS Institute. 

"We are honored to announce Chad Johnson's appointment both as a member of our Board of Directors and as General Counsel of Cannabis Science.  Mr. Johnson's proven background in corporate governance, corporate merger and acquisition regulation, constitutional and civil rights law, and political activism will add layers of intellectual wealth and valuable experience to our growing team. His appointment furthers our ties with the World AIDS Institute, of which Chad is a Co-Founder.  We are proud to foster creative synergies between a nonprofit, formed to promote HIV awareness and education and to advance efforts to find an HIV cure with a public company medicinalizing cannabis-based extracts that are proving effective in treating HIV-related illnesses' stated Dr. Robert Melamede, President & CEO, Cannabis Science Inc.
