PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Feb 19, 2014) - SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING), a state-of-the-art mobile technology company and full-service mobile marketing company, announces a complete suite of technological offerings with marketing, loyalty/branding and payment solutions for the legalized Cannabis, Medical Marijuana industry.
Last week, the Obama administration released U.S. government initiatives to ease banking concerns on banks wanting to do business with those that legally sell marijuana. SinglePoint CEO, Greg Lambrecht, states, "This is huge for SinglePoint; a big step in the right direction toward realizing a potential lucrative revenue stream on what looks to be an inevitable shift in legislation."
SinglePoint's all-in-one solution will now handle four different services dedicated to the sale of medical cannabis. SinglePoint's product suite will provide Medical Cannabis dispensaries a user-friendly platform with mobile marketing services, dispensary loyalty cards, mobile payments via text message, and payments via point-of-sale terminals.
Recently, SinglePoint announced that it has prepared to integrate mobile payment systems for the legalized Cannabis Industry in light of rapid industry growth, and widening social acceptance of a drug that not too long ago was recognized as taboo.
"Response was tremendous," says Lambrecht. "We posted our announcement and the next day we were taking meetings with dispensary owners, in person and via phone, in preparation for what we feel will result in a ground-floor opportunity for SinglePoint to expand its brand."
Under the current rules, "every financial institution will have to make its own risk assessment and decide whether it makes businesses sense," said an administration official. "While it may not reassure every bank, we're proving an opening for those who want to serve this sector."
Lambrecht agrees, as he stated last week, "This impacts us directly in terms of overall potential for growth in the Cannabis industry as we have launch-ready products positioned to improve overall efficiency for both buyers and sellers of legalized (State) Marijuana, including our mobile payments IP."
Medical marijuana is now legal in 20 states, and legislation is pending in 13 others. It's become a $1.5-billion-a-year industry, and it's expected to triple in just a few years.
