DENVER, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Denver based LoPro Consulting Group (www.loproconsulting.com) launched their comprehensive service platform today aimed straight at the globally-developing legal marijuana industry. The launch further validates the reality of the marijuana legalization story as it continues to unfold across the US and beyond. With the federal government recently announcing plans to draft regulations that will allow legal marijuana businesses to use banking services, LoPro's unveiling is just another shoe to drop for global investors sitting on the sidelines waiting for the right time to get into this billion-dollar industry.
What was once a foggy road towards marijuana legalization has cleared up significantly as landmark legislative developments continue to unravel. In 2010, HB-1284 made Colorado the first US State to establish a comprehensive, state-approved system of licensure to regulate the growing and dispensing of medical marijuana for qualified patients. Two years later, both Washington and Colorado became the first states in the union to fully legalize marijuana for recreational use. As it presently stands, 20 U.S. States along with the District of Columbia have passed and implemented some form of marijuana legalization, mostly for medical purposes. Also up for medical legalization this year are Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Florida, Pennsylvania, and New York, as well as full legalization initiatives going on in Alaska and New Hampshire.
Further making the case for legalization are recent announcements made by the Federal Government articulating their position on these legislative developments. Just last year Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Feds intend to allow both Washington and Colorado to implement their systems of marijuana legalization as long as marijuana businesses are in clear and unambiguous compliance with state law. Following these comments, President Obama, speaking to New Yorker editor David Remnick in January of this year, stated that in his opinion, marijuana is "no worse then alcohol" and that the drug wasn't the social ill that it's been viewed as in the past. Most recently, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Obama administration will offer guidance "very soon" to banks that are leery of dealing with state-licensed marijuana businesses because they worry about attracting unwelcome attention from federal regulators and prosecutors.
All of these recent developments have prompted a massive uptick in the level of interest from potential investors to the industry. These people will look to LoPro Consulting to provide quality, effective consultation in a manner that greatly simplifies an otherwise complex industry infrastructure. "LoPro offers simple, streamlined, high-value services presented for business owners, by business owners" says Managing Partner Jason Katz. "Our modular-based service platform offers an inside look at the how the marijuana industry operates by breaking down every facet of both starting and running a marijuana business.
