Blue Line Protection Group Expands Protection Services for LaConte's Cannabis Retail Locations

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2015) - Blue Line Protection Group, Inc. (OTCBB: BLPG) (OTCQB: BLPG), a leader in providing regulatory compliance, security consultation and protection services to high-value asset industries, today announced the expansion of its security contract with LaConte's Clone Bar and Dispensary in Denver, Colorado.

Blue Line's former law enforcement and military professionals will provide customer validation and verification and security services for cannabis product and the dispensaries' cash tax payments to government revenue agencies. The expansion of Blue Line's services increases its gross revenue from LaConte's from $102,000 to about $185,000 per year.

"We're pleased to expand our services with Blue Line Protection Group," said Amanda Von Kamp, owner of LaConte's. "Blue Line's personnel help us provide consistent, high-quality customer service and security operations and help us provide a safe and secure retail experience for our customers and staff."

"Not only have we seen new clients come on board with our services, we've also seen an expansion of our services among our current clients," said Sean Campbell, Blue Line's Chief Executive Officer. "Since we have the established infrastructure of cannabis protection and compliance services, we can leverage that presence to help these businesses operate more safely and economically than trying to do these services on their own."

The original LaConte's location opened in November 2010 and catered to medicinal marijuana patients. In April 2014, it started serving recreational patients as well with a large selection of edibles, concentrates, tinctures, topicals and more, with customer service being its staff's number-one priority.

"LaConte's has been a long-time client of ours, and we're happy to renew and expand our relationship," said Ricky G. Bennett, Blue Line's Vice President of Operations and Compliance. "Through our National Academy for Protection Professionals, we're able to provide world-class, consistent training to our security personnel so they can provide high-quality, customer-centric service to our partners and their customers. The expansion of services and growth of new customers confirms to us that better trained professionals are what the industry wants."

In addition to providing its complete suite of security and transportation services, Blue Line also conducts on-site compliance audits for lawful cannabis businesses, designed to assist banks with meeting federal requirements for marijuana-related businesses. Blue Line investigators perform state and federal compliance assessments to collect the necessary data to demonstrate its clients are operating responsible and legitimate businesses, in line with federal requirements as outlined in the Cole Memo, as well as FinCEN and BSA standards.
