Blue Line Protection Group Wins Major Colorado Cannabis Dispensaries With New Security and Transportation Contract

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 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 the Company has entered into a new security and transportation contract with a major marijuana dispensary and grow facility serving locations throughout Colorado.

According to the contract, Blue Line's security personnel will provide guard and secured transportation services for LivWell, LLC. LivWell owns 13 marijuana dispensaries across Colorado, nine of which operate under the LivWell name, and a grow facility located near Denver.

"Lawful cannabis businesses across Colorado realize that securing their retail establishments and grow operations is a crucial consideration in their day-to-day-operations," said Sean Campbell, Blue Line's Chief Executive Officer. "Our new contract with LivWell further establishes Blue Line as the premier protection and transportation provider in the industry."

Blue Line will provide 24-hour, 7-day-a-week protection services to LivWell's grow facility near Denver, helping to ensure that their grow operations remain secure and profitable. Blue Line will also provide secured transportation services for LivWell's tax revenue transports.

"Too often, we see retail business owners taking chances with employee safety by requiring their staff to transport cash and product using their own personal vehicles or unsecured courier services," said Dan Sullivan, Blue Line's Vice President of Sales and Training. "But those involved in the lawful cannabis business are quickly realizing that it's not worth jeopardizing their staff -- or their valuable product -- by cutting corners on safety. Our clients know it's worth securing the services of a highly trained, professional and insured protection company to handle the logistics of their valuable assets."

The new transportation and security contract with LivWell solidifies and expands Blue Line's role as the leader in cannabis protection services in Colorado. LivWell services medical marijuana patients and recreational customers in its retail stores across Colorado with premium flower, edibles, concentrates and accessories.

"We looked at both our employee safety concerns and security requirements and evaluated bringing these services in-house," said John Lord, Managing Partner, LivWell, LLC. "After looking at the liability, financial and management issues, we felt Blue Line provided a more cost effective and superior solution for our needs. We are excited and looking forward to our relationship with Blue Line."

"A large number of our customers are now looking for not only our guard and transport services but our compliance service. They tell us it gives them not only more confidence in maintaining their own license, but more importantly helps keep the entire industry legitimate and safe," added Mr. Campbell. "We can ensure that every part of the cannabis supply chain is validated and scrutinized through our compliance audits and demonstrate that as a third party, our clients are meeting or exceeding all state and federal guidance in respect of compliance. Creating a transparent and legitimate industry is why we established our compliance processes and chain of control and it all begins with protecting and moving cash and product in a secure and responsible manner."
