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. This approach makes understanding the process for success more accessible and less intimidating." LoPro's comprehensive service platform, covering business development, operations, and regulatory/political consultation, is truly revolutionizing this already revolutionary industry.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between confe...

However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
