RingBoost Makes Available Vanity Phone Numbers for Legal Marijuana Businesses

PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- RingBoost(TM), the nation's leading provider of vanity toll-free and local phone numbers, has announced the availability of special vanity phone numbers for marijuana businesses. The recent legalization of marijuana around the country has led to steep competition in this booming industry. Vanity phone numbers provide instant credibility and brand recognition in a way no other market tool can.

"The immediate goal for local brick-and-mortar businesses is to generate more phone calls and more foot traffic," said Paul Faust, a senior vice president for business development at RingBoost(TM). "This is as true for marijuana businesses as it is for any other business. More phone calls means more chances to earn new customers."

Faust added, "Industry research has shown that phone leads convert ten times more often than web leads into paying customers, which means marijuana businesses who make use of a branded phone number such as 541-YES-WEED will have a tremendous competitive advantage in their markets."

RingBoost(TM) is currently offering a variety of options for marijuana dispensaries, including local phone number options in four or seven digits in most local area codes (e.g. 541-383-WEED, 541-YES-WEED), and powerful toll-free options, including 1-800-CANNABIS, which is available for exclusive use in individual markets in states where marijuana is legal.

New Jersey Political Prisoner NJ Weedman Does ‘Hunger Strike for Bail’ from Mercer County Jail

TRENTON, N.J. -- Is orange the new green? Cannabis activist, cancer patient and self-proclaimed "Superhero of the Potheads" Ed Forchion aka "NJ Weedman" might well be pondering this dilemma as he sits out his "Hunger Strike for Bail" protest in New Jersey's Mercer County Jail.

The free speech activist was originally incarcerated on March 3, 2017 and is being held without bail on charges of witness tampering. Forchion has since filed a Federal Writ of Habeas Corpus in U.S. Federal District Court of Trenton New Jersey (Case No. 317CV02669PGS) claiming a tragic violation of his civil rights under New Jersey's new bail reform laws. Forchion has gone without food for over 11 days.

The charges were filed after Forchion, per the approval of his former attorney, posted the name and photo of a police informant on his Facebook page, requesting the public to help him find information on the man. Forchion believed the individual was a paid informant, hired by the Trenton Police, to build a drug case against him. Under New Jersey's new bail reform laws, which went into effect January 1, officials cite that certain conditions can warrant pre-trial detention, like danger to the community, flight risk or threat to a witness.

"I am a peaceful, proud and patriotic pothead," cites Forchion. "Yet I have sat here for over 100 days in a cell while watching real criminals, like murderers and rapists, get released daily on bail. Nothing I did was illegal," Forchion has stated from jail. "Nothing I did was wrong. In fact, I actually thought I was in accordance with the law per the advice of my attorney." (Forchion's attorney has since been removed from the case per his own request.)

Forchion's long standing battle for marijuana law reform has been documented for over two decades. Considered by many as the "grandfather of marijuana reform in New Jersey," Forchion is a bone cancer patient who states he needs marijuana for his symptoms. Forchion's most recent travails with the Trenton Police Department have shined an international media spotlight on the state's current cannabis policy. Forchion contends he is political prisoner due to the "politics of pot Jersey style."

Amongst his many trials and tribulations over the years, Forchion pleaded guilty in 2000 to charges of conspiracy to distribute and marijuana possession and was released on parole after serving 18 months on a reduced sentence. He was arrested again in Burlington County, N.J., in 2010 on marijuana possession and distribution charges. He has fought those charges. Forchion argued his medical condition gave him a "medical necessity" defense to possess and appealed the decision to the NJ Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Forchion achieved Hollywood notoriety when he opened a marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles in 2008, saying it was a temple that used marijuana as part of its religious ceremonies. The California temple was shut down after a federal drug raid in 2011.

Currently Forchion, a Rastafarian, is the co-owner of New Jersey's only cannabis-themed restaurant, NJWeedman's Joint and a spiritual sanctuary, Liberty Bell Temple III, located directly across from New Jersey's Trenton City Hall. He opened the businesses, alongside his partner, medical marijuana mom activist and registered nurse, Debi Madaio. The restaurant and sanctuary receive not only a steady stream of customers but also worldwide media attention.

Witness the most recent court proceedings at and check for Debi Madaio's interview about the matter on New York's PIX11 at .

A barbeque fundraiser and birthday celebration is scheduled for Ed Forchion on his birthday, July 23 at NJWeedman's Joint at 322 E. State St. in Trenton, N.J. Follow NJWeedman's Joint on Facebook at "NJWeedman's Joint" for updates and details.

New Cannabis Compliance Company Launches Public Funding Effort with GrowthFountain

HORSESHOE LAKE, Ark. -- The Herbal Compliance Co. announces the launch of its compliance consulting services for legal medical cannabis and hemp businesses. This unique company will also be partnering with GrowthFountain to raise $1 million in funds through a unique form of investor funding called Regulation Crowdfunding.

Interested investors can see the offering and make an investment by visiting Growth Fountain at

Herbal Compliance fills a need created by differences in marijuana legislation at the state and federal levels. While it is currently legal in 26 states and the District of Columbia to grow and sell marijuana for medical purposes, it is still illegal on a federal level, resulting in thousands of conflicts between state and federal regulations.

"Understanding the laws governing medical marijuana and hemp is our core competency," explains Chuck Carpenter, president of Herbal Compliance. "But we also offer other types of business consulting like inventory management, branding, and employee education. Our mission is to help companies in this new area of American enterprise to grow and thrive."

To fully fund their startup, Herbal Compliance is using a new form of funding enabled by recent changes in securities law in the JOBS Act called Regulation Crowdfunding. The rules for this sort of investing went into effect May 2016, allowing non-accredited investors to participate in a funding round for a private company for the first time in history.

"We're excited to help Herbal Compliance raise the money they need to grow," says Abe Orden, operations manager of GrowthFountain. "For the first time in 80 years, average Americans now have the opportunity to support and invest in local businesses and entrepreneurs they believe in."

Herbal Compliance's campaign started on June 6, 2017 and will continue through Oct. 4, 2017. Their aim is to raise between $100,000 and $1 million with a minimum buy-in of $100 per investor.

About Herbal Compliance:

Launched in January 2017, The Herbal Compliance Co. provides companies in the legal medical cannabis and hemp business with services to ensure that they remain compliant with the law. Services include design and buildout, equipment fulfillment, regulator compliance, remote inventory control and reporting, vendor relationships, brand and marketing, and tax management and education.

About GrowthFountain:

GrowthFountain Capital LLC is a Regulation Crowdfunding platform aimed at simplifying fundraising and helping businesses build collateral. GrowthFountain is registered with the SEC and a member of FINRA. Learn more at
