COLORADO SPRINGS, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/14 -- Advanced Cannabis Solutions (ACS) (OTCQB: CANN) announced today that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with the Alison Group to distribute CRREO (Child Resistant Reclosable Easy Open) bags in southern Colorado for marijuana dispensaries. Robert Frichtel, President and CEO of ACS, "Alison's commitment to compliance and the fact that the CRREO bag is the only flexible (bag) that is ASTM (American Society of Testing and Materials) approved will make this packaging a great solution for packaging requirements at dispensaries. Alison offers other products and solutions that cannabis dispensaries and cultivators may take advantage of as we pursue this business together." He continued by emphasizing, "The ASTM testing protocol must be followed by dispensaries according to what is defined by the Marijuana Enforcement Division." The Medical Enforcement Division is commonly referred to as the MED in Colorado, the marijuana regulatory body for state compliance.
According to Frichtel, the management team at ACS has been exploring ancillary products for dispensaries and cultivators for several months. Frichtel said, "Finding the right fit is just as important as finding the right products for ACS. The team at Alison is a good fit for our long-term development and distribution of solutions for our operators and customers in the marijuana industry." The CRREO bag was patented in 1994 and has been utilized in the medical industry for several years. ACS will begin distributing bags to customers in southern Colorado in May of this year, with additional market expansion possible.
