Blue Line Protection Group Wins Licenses to Open Operations in Nevada

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Mar 26, 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 that it is now fully licensed to provide its suite of protection, transportation and compliance services to clients in Nevada.

"With the medical marijuana industry coming online in Nevada, this presents a massive growth opportunity for Blue Line," said Sean Campbell, Blue Line's Chief Executive Officer. "We can now help ensure that Nevada clients are operating completely legitimate businesses, transporting and securing their products responsibly, and able to respond to all reporting requirements of state and federal licensing and regulatory agencies."

Blue Line Protection Group, Inc. will operate under the Private Investigator license #2034A and Private Patrolman license #2034B, both issued to BLPG, Inc., with Ricky G. Bennett, Blue Line's Vice President of Operations and Compliance, listed as the qualifying agent.

Blue Line's on-site operations and compliance consultants will also help Nevada marijuana businesses develop transparent relationships with banks, offering the industry-leading independent, third-party compliance solution to financial institutions that need to comply with federal guidelines, including Cole Memo and FinCEN requirements.

"Public safety has always been our primary objective here in Colorado, and our on-site security and compliance services are now available to the Nevada market," said Mr. Bennett. "Now, we can deploy our established framework of security and transportation services to the lawful cannabis industry in Nevada, just as we've done in Colorado and other states. We help ensure that our clients are providing their medical marijuana responsibly and according to state law, they're validating and verifying all of their clients and keeping marijuana out of the hands of minors, and their products are not being moved illegally across state lines. Those are just a few of the compliance standards we monitor and validate that require on-site, trained investigative professionals."

While Blue Line Protection Group will ensure safe and secure operations for the new Nevada marijuana industry, its subsidiary, Blue Line Advisory Services, will provide complete bookkeeping services to its clients, as well. "Our goal is to streamline and simplify the day-to-day bookkeeping duties these businesses face," said Patrick Deparini, Blue Line Protection Group's Chief Financial Officer. "By doing so, we reduce our clients' operating costs, we help ensure their compliance with the myriad of local, state and federal regulations, and we provide them with peace of mind with our guarantee of audit protection services. Monitoring and tracking the amount of cash involved in any cannabis business -- as well as complying with the myriad of laws specific to the industry -- makes having an experienced bookkeeper a must."

"Blue Line Protection Group established itself as the leader in cannabis protection and compliance services, and our expansion into Nevada signals our dedication to create a secure and responsible industry across the nation," added Mr. Campbell. "For those in Nevada who want to operate safe and legitimate medical marijuana establishments, we have a message for them: We're open for business."
