Former CEO of MedBox, Dr. Bruce Bedrick, Joins Affinor Growers as a Consultant
MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwired - Sep 2, 2014) - Affinor Growers (CSE:AFI)(OTCQB:RSSFF)(FRANKFURT:1AF) ("Affinor" or the "Corporation) is excited to announce the former Medbox inc. CEO and founder of Kind Clinics Medical Marijuana Dispensaries, will be providing consulting services to Affinor Growers. Dr. Bedrick served as the Chief Executive Officer of MedBox, Inc. He is a highly accomplished, versatile and respected Chiropractic Physician and business owner with over 20 years of diverse and innovative experience.
In the context of Dr. Bedrick's consultancy for Affinor Growers, he will be helping to improve the footprint of Affinor's business. Dr. Bedrick's primary focus will be to apply his business skillset and advise on the expansion of the licensing of the Vertical Design patented technology for the cultivation of produce in the US and Mexico. Dr. Bedrick lost his mother to metastatic breast cancer when he was only 10 years old. The devastating personal loss he suffered as a child combined with working in the alternative medicine field as an adult, served as the best preparation to become a leader in the medical marijuana industry. With the development of Kind Clinics, and then through Medbox, he created an opportunity for patients in need of medical marijuana medicine to acquire their medicine.

His professional acumen, contacts, and worldwide notoriety can quickly help Affinor execute on their business plan".
