MassRoots Comments on White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s Cannabis Policy Remarks

MassRoots Users Funding Round and Crosses Half a Million Users and NASDAQ

DENVER, Feb. 23, 2017 /Weed Wire/ — MassRoots, Inc. (OTCQB:MSRT), one of the leading technology platforms for the cannabis industry, is pleased to report its monthly page views have increased 68% month over month, driven primarily by MassRoots Senior Political Correspondent Tom Angell’s coverage of rapidly evolving state and federal cannabis policies. The Company plans to launch a revamped website within the next several weeks to significantly improve its search engine optimization, increase inventory for advertisers, and better connect medical cannabis patients with the best strains and products to treat their ailments.

“This is the first time a sitting Republican President has acknowledged the medical benefits of cannabis while we expect Congress to extend the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment prohibiting the Department of Justice from interfering with state medical cannabis programs,” stated MassRoots CEO Mr. Isaac Dietrich. “While it is disheartening to hear the White House not endorse recreational cannabis, these remarks play to President Trump’s base while subtly giving the green light to medical cannabis. We do not believe the Trump Administration will take significant action to shut down the recreational cannabis industry in states like Colorado, where the cannabis industry employs tens of thousands of people and contributes more than $100 million in taxes annually, mainly towards state education systems.”

MassRoots believes that if President Trump met with medical cannabis CEOs, he would be impressed with the vast amount of jobs and economic growth the cannabis industry can create.
