Amigula Incorporated -- The World's First Publicly Traded Medical Marijuana Company

Beverly Hills, Calif. -- Amigula Incorporated (OTC:AMJL), the world's first publicly traded medical marijuana company, today announced that several Hollywood agents and management groups have been working with their clients at the bequest of Amigula Inc., negotiating contracts with "Super Stars" willing to endorse medical marijuana as a viable medicinal therapy for a variety of extreme illnesses, including multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, arthritis, glaucoma, AIDS, nausea - chemotherapy, anxiety and stress, as well as for several other dysfunctions.

"We approached several well-known talent agents and managers to request that they approach their talent and present our cause and opportunity to them. Some of the stars wished us well and declined at first, then called their agents back after thinking things over and said 'Let's talk,'" said Warren Eugene, president, Amigula Inc.

"We require a star who is well known and trusted by a geriatric and maturing population. We require someone to educate people with us. There is so much by way of misconception and myth surrounding marijuana; it needs a star to assist us in getting the message right. That message is a simple one -- that marijuana is an excellent alternative homeopic therapy for those truly suffering and requiring medications. We are an agricultural pharmaceutical company on a mission to do good for others.

"So that's when it hit me, what about stars who have excelled at fighting for others with illness. These stars are heroes to millions of people the world over.

"One star actually did a TV episode where she smoked marijuana. She is of the right age and high quality to endorse our company and products. We are pursuing her. There are several stars who would be naturals for us.

"Some have had to personally battle major illness; they had to go through treatment for illness and could empathize with millions of other people requiring therapeutic relief.

"There will be many stars, before too long, who will come to our side and join us in this important quest, of that I'm certain. It's still early; we just got started a few months ago. I'm confident that things will work out well for us. This is history in the making," said Eugene.

About Amigula Inc.

Amigula Inc. -- has recently completed the purchase of 51% of Medical Cannabis Inc. and has announced their plans to file as a reporting issuer. The company plans to list on a major exchange beginning with an application for a listing on the American Stock Exchange (AMEX) or Nasdaq, as well as several European exchanges. The company views the current prohibition of marijuana as similar to that of alcohol, beer and tobacco. Canada's marijuana crop alone is estimated at $4 billion to $7 billion. If a single company controlled it, it would be larger than Canada's oil and gas business and agricultural industries.

On October 7, 2003, the Ontario Superior Court ruled that business and individuals be allowed to grow and supply medical marijuana, effectively relieving the Canadian government of its often criticized and fairly unsuccessful attempts. Health Canada "permitted persons" (exemptees) can now pay Amigula to grow marijuana for them. The ruling makes it easier for sick people to get marijuana by allowing them easier access -- more choice and fair prices. The company has a mandate to develop and improve the medical marijuana business worldwide and is on the acquisition and consolidation trail of other legal licensed marijuana operations with notable international brands.

I wouldn't buy stock just yet ... the DEA could smash in the doors and shoot everyone inside at a moment's notice - pot is still against federal law, and the openly-stated federal position is that federal law will continue to be enforced. Listening to the will of the voters apparently only matters when it increases federal power, not decreases it.

Alas, its a Canadian company. Medical marijuana is legal there. The DEA will have to stick to getting its kicks rousting sick people in the U.S.

Pot makes people high. That's why they smoke it.

Medicinal marijuana is a put-up job to that end.

Vicodin makes you high
Oxycontin makes you high
Percodan makes you high
Demoral makes you high
Morphine makes you high

I thought once you were incorporated, "painkillers" became legitimate?

Clank your chains; one for yes, 2 for no.

And where's that urine sample, huh?!?!

Yes, these drugs and many more are used "recreationally", like it or not.

That point being....?

If you're point is that med mj is a "ruse" for people to "get high" while claiming medicinal qualities, well then your point is pointless.

As of now, CA's medical MJ is the Law of the land. It will take an appeal to the USSC and reversal of the Ninth to change that.

Court Allows Medicinal Use of Marijuana

AFAIK, the Feds have not commented on their plans.

Buying 1,000 shares the day they become public.

Not quite as amazing what this plant can do in terms of helping folks who claim they're sick.

Treat marijuana as we do any other prescription drug and I'll support it. Sound fair?

"risking a "substantial effects"

Not much risk involved in making a case that commercial Amigula marijuana is commerce with foreign nations, is there?

Y'know, they just might prefer letting the Western states have medical marijuana, rather than appealing the decision and risking a "substantial effects"-leery Supreme Court allowing medical marijuana nationwide.

Your 'camel's nose under the tent' toward legalization of crack?

"Um, that has nothing to do with my post"

Um, you were responding to post #15, weren't you? And post #15 was referring to post #5 [I wouldn't buy stock (in Amigula) just yet ...].

You want to change the subject to Raich v Ashcroft, I suggest you start a new thread. Actually, MrLeRoy, I suggest you leave the board.

Could you be any less relevant to the topic at hand? My cat's breath smells like cat food.

Let's be honest! Aren't you for the legalization of all drugs and you just play on the medical marijuana propaganda to that end?

"namely, its unpatentability and consequent inability to repay the costs of getting FDA approval"

Not only a troll, but a lying troll.

Marinol®, from Unimed Pharmaceuticals, Inc., has been in the market since 1985. It was FDA approved in 1992 to stimulate appetite and combat weight loss in AIDS patients.

Sativex®, from GW Pharmaceuticals, will be marketed in the UK by Bayer AG once approved by the MCA (Medicines Control Agency) for treatment of multiple sclerosis, neuropathic pain and cancer pain.

Take your lies and go away, MrLeRoy.

Yeah, that was my first thought. Hollywood is having trouble finding a spokeperson to promote pot?

That's gotta be hard -- hard to narrow down the list, that is.

That it's good for society is debatable. Though clamoring for its use as medicine isn't. If that isn't a lie, it's ignorant.

No, I would support medical marijuana regardless of my position on other drug issues.

I bet you wouldn't give up your support for legalization of crack inorder to make your medical marijuana support more credible, would you!

Neither is aspirin White Willow bark. So?

Would you also say that "the special economic circumstances of White Willow bark -- namely, its unpatentability and consequent inability to repay the costs of getting FDA approval -- need to be taken into account"?

What a jerk.

Oh, MrLeRoy, you (again) left out a key phrase from your IOM quote. You know, the one that states:

"Although marijuana smoke delivers THC and other cannabinoids to the body, it also delivers harmful substances, including most of those found in tobacco smoke. In addition, plants contain a variable mixture of biologically active compounds and cannot be expected to provide a precisely defined drug effect. For those reasons there is little future in smoked marijuana as a medically approved medication. If there is any future in cannabinoid drugs, it lies with agents of more certain, not less certain, composition."

And those "agents" can be found in drugs like Marinol® and Sativex®.

"...symptoms for whom smoked marijuana might provide relief...."

Gosh! I didn't know you were gonna use the same science that proves global warming.

Well, that settles that, alright.

Oops! Looks like MrLeRoy accidentally left out the rest of the paragraph (in bold):

"The profile of cannabinoid drug effects suggests that they are promising for treating wasting syndrome in AIDS patients. Nausea, appetite loss, pain, and anxiety are all afflictions of wasting, and all can be mitigated by marijuana. Although some medications are more effective than marijuana for these problems, they are not equally effective in all patients. A rapid-onset (that is, acting within minutes) delivery system should be developed and tested in such patients. Smoking marijuana is not recommended. The long-term harm caused by smoking marijuana makes it a poor drug delivery system, particularly for patients with chronic illnesses."

There. That's better.

"Sick people are suffering today."

Sick people have been suffering for centuries. So? Like you care?

Your goal is marijuana legalization. Your concern for the sick and dying is limited to their use to you in getting to that goal.

Disgusting.

Cannabis has been used as herbal medicine before in many countries. Why do you think it has no medicinal properties? Many of the drugs we use now began as an herbal extract.
