FOUNTAIN HILLS, AZ--(Marketwired - Mar 13, 2014) - ML Capital Group, Inc. (OTCQB: MLCG) (OTCBB: MLCG) is proud to announce its progress towards the commercial launch of its SuperStar Vapor Pens and Smartphone Application for the medical marijuana industry.
ML Capital Group, Inc. ("MLCG" or the "Company") previously announced its entry into the medical marijuana ("MMJ") industry with the development of smart phone applications that connect people with an array of resources that support their needs, in addition to developing and commercializing a unique line of vapor pen products under their trademarked SuperStar brand.
The Company has recently completed the design and packaging for their unique SuperStar Vapor Pens product line with shipment of its first order of prototypes expected to be completed by the end of March. In addition, the Company has made considerable strides in contacting potential distributors and retail outlets that can carry the SuperStar Vapor Pen and anticipates that it will finalize a distribution agreement and/or a purchase order contract in the immediate future. Mrs. Lisa Nelson, the Company's President and CEO, stated "this is a very exciting time for ML Capital Group and we're very pleased with the great progress we've made towards the development of our SuperStar Vapor Pens in a few short weeks. Considering the near term launch of our SuperStar branded products -- it could not be timed better with the growth and news that is coming out of the medical marijuana industry."
MLCG also announced that it started the development of smartphone applications that provide valuable information to those who use medical marijuana. The Company is pleased to inform our shareholders that significant development has been completed and the application is expected to be ready for beta testing by the end of March, with an anticipated nation-wide launch in April. The first application being released will be the "SuperStar MMJ Dispensaries" app, which will provide location based services and specific information on each respective dispensary on a national scale. Furthermore, additional services, information and features will be available through the application, which will remain unannounced and in stealth mode during our current development phase.
The medical marijuana industry has experienced phenomenal growth during the past year and has been a highly discussed subject in the news and in conversations world-wide. Considering the current growth and opportunities in the MMJ industry -- it is still in its infancy. Earlier this week, and as reported in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the State of Washington's rules for legal pot growers were recently amended to let growers start with mature, but non-flowering plants. This is a critical adaptation from the earlier regulations, which specified that growers needed to start with a seed or a small clone, which would have taken much longer to flower and produce a usable product. Washington will start issuing licenses for weed growers on Dec. 1, so depending on how long it takes for actual licenses to be issued, there could be ripe, mature buds on the market by early spring. Washington and Colorado were the first two states to make recreational weed legal in historic votes that took place on Election Day in 2012.
