Medifirst Solutions recently announced it had completed a business development agreement with Native Holdings LLC which has a long time business relationship with the Seminole Tribe of Florida, owners of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. This agreement will present a unique opportunity for Medifirst to both generate business with its current products as well as expand into new products and services. Stated Schoengood, "I am pleased to say that we have identified the products and services for our first business venture and I will be traveling to Florida within the next days or weeks to firm up our first transaction." More details will be forthcoming.
Medifirst is pleased to announce it will be launching a new division, called Medi-Safe Products under its Medical Marijuana banner. There is a great demand for tamper-proof and child-proof packaging in states like Colorado and the company anticipates the same demand for upcoming states such as Florida if medical marijuana is fully legalized and implemented. Stated Schoengood, "Products such as all forms of edibles in addition to the cannabis itself will most likely require some form of tamper resistant packaging and our goal is to provide packaging solutions that meets both the retail needs and state requirements. We continue to look for niche opportunities in this space." Medifirst anticipates further updates in the upcoming weeks.
