Blue Line Protection Group Provides Security and Transportation to New Cannabis Cultivation Facility

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Jan 29, 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 a new transportation and security contract with a cannabis cultivation facility under construction in Colorado.

The new cultivation complex, located in southern Colorado, will first consist of a 20-thousand-square-foot cannabis growing facility. Additional cultivation buildings are planned to accommodate the enormous expected demand for state-licensed, lawful cannabis products from dispensaries and infused processing facilities throughout the state.

"We're pleased to expand our southern Colorado security and transportation operations with our newest client," said Ricky G. Bennett, Blue Line's Vice President of Operations and Compliance. "As we expand our foothold across Colorado, we're better able to respond to our clients' security requirements, and we can leverage our statewide exposure through more efficient transportation strategies and more responsive response to local security needs."

Blue Line armed security personnel, consisting primarily of former law enforcement and military professionals, will provide around-the-clock armed protection services to the new grow facilities as they become staffed and operational. Initially, Blue Line expects to see nearly $190,000 in gross revenue annually from its protection services. As the cultivation campus grows in size and becomes fully operational, Blue Line expects to see up to a fivefold increase in revenue from its fully engaged security and transportation services.

In addition to providing its complete suite of security and transportation services, Blue Line will also be conducting on-site compliance audits, 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.

"Blue Line is pleased to provide vital services to the industry that can help ensure legitimacy and transparency, streamline operational procedures for these businesses, and help establish a healthy operational framework as we continue our expansion into other states," said Sean Campbell, Blue Line's Chief Executive Officer.
