The play? Medical dispensing. If the marijuana industry goes belly up, Medbox remains afloat. Consider the country’s climate (and your next move) as per the latest headlines:

- “Illinois medical marijuana rules unveiled; $100 for patient card ” (Crains Chicago Business): “Illinois regulators crafting the first rules for the state’s new medical marijuana industry have lowered patient fees and deleted a section that angered gun owners.
