LAS VEGAS, Jan. 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MassRoots, Inc. (OTCQB:MSRT), one of the largest and fastest growing technology platforms for the cannabis industry, has been invited to meet Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group, on Necker Island in early February as part of the Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC). Last Friday, MassRoots presented on stage at CES, a video of which is expected to be available later this week on the Company’s investor website.

“We are incredibly grateful for the opportunities the Extreme Tech Challenge has afforded to us – introductions to dozens of world-class mentors and investors, exposure from presenting on stage at CES, and now, the opportunity to meet one of the most legendary entrepreneurs and legalization advocates in the world,” stated MassRoots CEO Isaac Dietrich. “Despite some controversy, we believe our presence at CES and XTC paved serious in-roads with mainstream technology enthusiasts, investors, and media that will continue to benefit our company over the course of 2016.”

Last week, Bloomberg covered MassRoots as part of a story on cannabis technology at CES, accessible here.  The Company notes that it was invited to present at CES and did not “sneak in” as the title suggests.

MassRoots will be featured in a History Channel documentary, “The Marijuana Revolution,” tonight, January 11th, at 9:00pm EST. A preview is accessible here.
