Blue Line Protection Group to Present at International Cannabis Association Conference in New York

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2014) - Blue Line Protection Group, Inc. "Blue Line" (OTCBB: BLPG) (OTCQB: BLPG), a leader in providing regulatory compliance, security consultation and protection services to high-value asset industries, today announced that it will present its compliance and protection expertise at the International Cannabis Association (ICA) conference this weekend in New York City.

Daniel Sullivan, Blue Line's Vice President of Sales and Training, will be presenting information on the current state of the lawful cannabis industry, the importance of maintaining local and federal compliance, and strategies businesses can adopt to help them obtain legitimate banking services. He will speak on Monday, October 13th at 10:30 a.m. The ICA conference is October 11th - 13th at the Marriott Marquis at Times Square.

"It's a privilege for me to be able to share Blue Line's expertise in the lawful cannabis industry with the International Cannabis Association," said Mr. Sullivan. "With the passage of its Compassionate Care Act, New York recognizes the fact that the lawful cannabis industry is coming to the Big Apple, and we can bring our unparalleled protection and compliance experience to New York and help establish a safe, responsible and legitimate industry."

The International Cannabis Association provides educational conferences and networking events to professionals operating in the cannabis industry, bringing together experts from across the cannabis industry and providing a framework for business-to-business networking. Its previous conference, held last June in Las Vegas, welcomed nearly 1,000 entrepreneurs and industry professionals and provided a venue for educational presentations from 35 speakers from around the country.

Blue Line is an official sponsor of the International Cannabis Association conference in New York City and will have staff at booth #403 to answer questions about the cannabis industry. "We're here to stress to these cannabis business entrepreneurs the importance of being industry-compliant, keeping their licenses and being able to bank their cash," said Sean Campbell, Blue Line's Chief Executive Officer. "There's only a potential of five cannabis producers and 20 dispensaries to be licensed by the state of New York, so it's important that these business owners really understand what it takes to develop a legitimate, compliant and successful business model."

The New York City ICA conference will be even larger than its Las Vegas conference, featuring over 65 exhibitors, industry experts, lawmakers, lawyers and physicians related to the industry. New York Senator Diane Savino, who spoke at the Las Vegas conference, is also scheduled to host a regulatory panel at the New York conference on the afternoon at 2:00 p.m. on October 12th. Mr. Campbell and Mr. Sullivan will be attending a fundraiser for Senator Savino that evening at 5:30 p.m.

"As the largest and most experienced cannabis protection agency, we've worked with numerous lawful cannabis cultivation facilities and dispensaries in several states," said Mr. Sullivan. "Through our consultation services, we've developed security and transportation strategies that have helped them obtain their state-issued cannabis licenses. We continue to work with those clients to help them maintain their licenses. Using this model, we can establish consistent, professional and compliant operational procedures for cannabis businesses across the entire United States."
