Norwood, MA and MIAMI, Jan. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  MariMed Inc. (OTCQB: MRMD) CEO Robert Fireman will be a featured presenter at the second annual Cannabis Capital Conference, hosted by premier financial media outlet Benzinga, to be held in Miami, Florida, Jan. 15-16, 2019. This highly-anticipated event sets the standard among cannabis conferences, offering unparalleled access and seamless interaction between the entrepreneurs who are establishing highly promising companies and the investors whose capital will fuel their efforts.

Fireman’s MariMed presentation will be at 1:50 pm in Ballroom 3 at Eden Roc Hotel-Miami Beach, 4525 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Fla. Mr. Fireman, who grew MariMed from its early stages to a multi-state, publicly traded cannabis organization that was one of the top performing cannabis stocks of 2018, will be in good company with presenters including top investors like CNBC's Tim Seymour, Jon Najarian and New Cannabis Ventures founder Alan Brochstein and other top cannabis company CEOs.

“2018 was a banner year for MariMed and the cannabis and hemp industries. In anticipation of the federal government legalizing hemp through passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, MariMed expanded its footprint into the Hemp CBD industry, creating a new business division and revenue stream,” stated Robert Fireman. “Several new medical and recreational cannabis markets have emerged or expanded this year. We’re looking forward to sharing details of strategic license and facility acquisitions and how we will leverage developments in new legal markets to accelerate MariMed’s growth in 2019 and beyond.”
