New Frontier Financial’s Study Unveils Critical Challenges & Opportunities for Investors in the Cannabis Space at Marijuana Investor Summit

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) April 20, 2015

Washington – New Frontier, the leading Cannabis Big Data provider, will unveil seven critical considerations for investors looking at the legal Marijuana space in their first Investor Study to be released on 4/20 at the Marijuana Investor Summit in Denver. The study, along with their first Legislator and Operator studies, will provide readers unprecedented data analysis, and targeted actionable intelligence addressing imminent questions yet to be answered in this nascent industry.

“These reports offer unparalleled insight specifically targeting current investors, legislators, and operators’ questions in this still murky space. We have endeavored to look at the industry from a very fact-based perspective, cleaning up and aggregating what was still fragmented and imperfect data, to bring more transparency and provide better direction in this very unique and fascinating sector,” said Giadha Aguirre DeCarcer, Founder and CEO.

New Frontier analysts, economists, and business strategists dissect and synthesize data from a wide range of sources, including businesses, government agencies, and market surveys, then apply patented analytical techniques to answer the industry’s most important questions.

“No one else in the industry has put together this kind of analysis, primarily because the data has been sparse, fragmented, and imperfect. Our core technological infrastructure is designed to remedy those challenges and provide accessible and meaningful information to those who need it most,” added Glenn Harless, Co-Founder and CTO.

Each year New Frontier will produce an annual report exploring key developments in the industry, four quarterly reports targeting specific verticals or segments, and 12 monthly case studies on fast-moving trends and shifting industry dynamics relevant to investors, operators, and legislators.

“Our analysis is designed to inform investors, owner-operators, and policymakers at the federal and state level. New Frontier identified the need early on and was able to mobilize the necessary resources immediately to help bring a solution to market,” said Rick Gilchrist, Co-Founder and COO.

Key issues explored in the reports:

    Return on Investment: Pricing and profitability in increasingly competitive markets
    Products Trends: The growth of edibles and other marijuana infused products
    Business Ecosystem: Opportunities and risks in evolving ancillary markets
    Legislation: The impact of differing state regulatory models on the size of the market opportunity
    Taxation: The effect of tax policy on consumer demand
    Politics & Public Opinion: The widening gulf between federal law and public opinion
    Society: Impact of legalization on the community
    Sustainability: Improving energy efficiency in cultivation
    Science: Developments in research on the medical effects of marijuana

The entire New Frontier team will be onsite at the Marijuana Investor Summit in Denver from April 20-22 to introduce their studies and services to the Cannabis Industry. More can also be found at http://www.frontierfinancials.com.

Cannabis Consumers Coalition Obtains Names of Denver Marijuana Pesticides Violators and Issues Consumer Safety Alert Ahead of Hearing on Testing Bill

Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 15, 2015

The Cannabis Consumers Coalition, a Denver-based cannabis consumers advocacy organization with national and international members, has issued a consumer safety alert after obtaining the names of the businesses who had their plants quarantined for pesticide misuse, along with the names of the pesticides in question. The Cannabis Consumers Coalition had sent out Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) requests to the Denver Department of Environmental Health and the Department of Agriculture. The Department of Agriculture did not release the names of the violators citing that they were not allowed to give out identifying information on open cases, however, Denver Department of Environmental Health, operating on different policies, released the records.

“This is dangerous to public safety. We need better testing policies that put consumer safety first. Retail cannabis is supposed to be tested for harmful pesticides, and there already exists a list of acceptable pesticides. This is at best gross negligence on behalf of the offending businesses that shows more concern for money than for safety. How many other violators are out there that haven’t gotten caught?” asks the Cannabis Consumers Coalition’s Executive Director, Larisa Bolivar.

Current laws only allow for licensed recreational manufacturers and distributors access to testing facilities, and there are no penalties outside of quarantines and the destruction of plants to hold violators accountable, which is the equivalent to a “time out.” Colorado SB15-260 sponsored by State Senator Aguilar (D-Denver), Senator Kerr (D-Lakewood), and House Representative Ginal (D-Fort Collins), will allow medical marijuana licensees to test; however, it also does not allow individuals to have their cannabis tested. The fear behind this is that black market operators will bring their cannabis to be tested, however, that is unlikely because illegal operators are not going to risk getting caught by handing out their IDs and putting their information on applications.

The Cannabis Consumers Coalition and its members would like to see more accountability added to these bills. A cease and desist order does not go far enough when protecting public safety. There needs to be penalties for violators, such as fines for first and second violations, and then license revocation for third violations. There also needs to be a more consistent and expedited process for violations so that cannabis consumers can confidently know in a timely manner that the cannabis they are consuming is safe. Finally, it is only fair that cannabis consumers be allowed to have their cannabis products tested at independent facilities. Cannabis consumers are not being considered in these laws that are heavily biased towards industry needs. Public safety in all manners should be always be the first consideration, and cannabis consumers deserve to be empowered in their decision making and know that state officials have their backs when it comes to product safety.

For more information, please contact Larisa Bolivar at 703-244-4857. For more information on the Cannabis Consumers Coalition, visit http://www.cannabisconsumer.org.

Republican Utah State Senator Mark Madsen Advocates the Legalization of Cannabis in Exclusive Video Interview with Illegallyhealed.com


Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 21, 2015

A conservative Republican Utah state senator has a “420” message for America: “It’s time to legalize medical cannabis.” In an exclusive video interview released this morning at illegallyhealed.com, Utah State Senator Mark Madsen discusses his own personal use of medical cannabis and advocates for national reform.

“We need to work from the principles of freedom and compassion and let the policy grow from there,” says Madsen. “I believe we should allow individuals and their physicians to make their own decisions on whether medical cannabis is an augmentation or an alternative to other traditional medical treatments. Government has no legitimate place in that process.”

In the exclusive interview for the April 20th, 2015 episode #4 of the 8 week Drug Policy Project of Utah video series released at illegallyhealed.com, Madsen revealed that in 2007, he was nearly killed by an accidental overdose of fentanyl when a patch his doctor prescribed accidentally tore and released a fatal dose of the opiate.

Madsen was the sponsor of recent legislation in the state, S.B. 259, which would have legalized the cultivation, production, sale and possession of whole-plant medical cannabis for a range of conditions. (fox13now.com/2015/02/25/bill-introduced-to-legalize-medical-marijuana-in-utah/) The bill was narrowly defeated by one flipped vote in the senate in March.

Shortly before introducing S.B. 259, Madsen travelled to Colorado to try medical cannabis, which he said provided great relief for his chronic back pain. In the video interview at illegallyhealed.com, Madsen says that he was inspired by the families lobbying for legislation which was passed in 2014 legalizing high-CBD medical cannabis extracts for epileptic patients.

“[These children] had been struggling with severe seizures up to the point of death,” Madsen says. “I realized it was misguided government policy that was keeping relief from these innocents and I started to take a different perspective. It wasn’t just about me and my back pain. There are other people suffering, and suffering worse than I, who could benefit from this. When it became an issue that was not just about me I realized I had to do something.”

Madsen is a Republican Utah State Senator representing the 13th District, which includes some of the most conservative parts of the traditionally conservative state. Madsen was born in Washington D.C. and raised in Colorado. He is a proud NRA member and attorney who has championed libertarian causes during his tenure in the Utah State Senate.

Madsen is the grandson of Ezra Taft Benson, President Eisenhower’s secretary of agriculture and president and prophet of the Mormon Church from the mid-eighties until the time of his death in 1994.

The video interview was released as a collaboration between the Drug Policy Project of Utah and Illegally Healed. For more information, please visit: http://illegallyhealed.com/utah-state-senator-mark-madsen-says-legalize-cannabis/

GreenRushReview.com Reports Bitcoin ATMs and Vending Machines a New Trend with Medical Marijuana Dispensaries


San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2015

GreenRushReview.com, a marijuana industry news website, reports that bitcoin ATMS and vending machines could be the new trend with medical marijuana dispensaries over the next few years. Bitcoin, released in 2009, is a digital currency initially used to make purchases online. Nowadays, however, bitcoins are slowly being accepted as a form of payment in brick and mortar establishments.

According to the Huffington Post, digital currencies could potentially be the solution to huge problems encountered by marijuana businesses that legally operate under state laws. Traditional banks tend to reject cannabis-related businesses since federal law still considers marijuana to be illegal, and these financial institutions fear that they may be punished or fined by law enforcement authorities and federal regulators.

In the process, marijuana businesses are unable to open checking accounts or accept credit cards. They are left without secure options, and are forced into dealing only with large amounts of cash – risking their safety and raising employee payroll and tax issues. Thus, dealing in bitcoins may wind up being the better and more secure alternative.

Bitcoin Foundation Chief Scientist Gaven Andresen believes that legal marijuana industries could potentially be one of the big industries for bitcoin, as it allows marijuana growers a means of charging without involving cash.

Colorado dispensaries, in their first month, made approximately $ 14 million in sales. In the next fiscal year, Gov. John Hickenlooper expects to make almost $ 1 billion in combined sales of medical and recreational marijuana. By 2018, a national study projected that legal marijuana industry may be worth $ 10 billion.

Peter Klamka, bitcoin entrepreneur, believes that there is a general lack of understanding of the benefits that merchants can enjoy from bitcoins, but thinks that his business is a promising one as the medical marijuana industry continues to grow. At present, the entrepreneur estimates that there are roughly 300 bitcoin ATM machines around the globe.

Klamka states that medical marijuana users will be among the earliest bitcoin users. His company, Bitcoin Brands, has placed a bitcoin ATM machine in one medical marijuana dispensary and is placing two more in the Grand Rapids area. The three medical marijuana dispensaries will be using bitcoin payment tablets in order to facilitate transactions using bitcoins.

In Seattle, Washington, the first vending machines to dispense marijuana via bitcoin payments made its debut earlier this year. These machines, more commonly known as ZaZZZ, first came out in Colorado in April of 2014. Manufactured by American Green, these units accept bitcoin by displaying a QR-code on its touchscreen. The company aims to bring the bitcoin-friendly vending machine to other venues in the future.

Bitcoin transactions take place directly between the seller and the buyer, which means that there are no financial institutions or banks to act as intermediary. Digital currencies such as bitcoins even have lower transaction fees, and allow both individuals and businesses to conduct business faster and cheaper.

GreenRushReview.com strives to be a convenient and reliable online resource for all cannabis consumers, entrepreneurs, and investors. The website aims to provide the general public with extensive coverage on features, news, opinions, and events on the multi-billion marijuana industry and culture in North America, including industry stocks, prices, implications, trend developments, investment opportunities, business opportunities, and legislation.

The site also hosts cannabis industry video, press releases, a business directory and events calendar.

The coining of the term “Green Rush” refers to the swift surge of activity brought about by the legalization of medical marijuana in over 23 states, and the acceptance of comprehensive cannabis and medical marijuana programs.
