Denver, COÂ – In the wake of outgoing Illinois Governor Pat Quinn’s decision not to announce the winners of medical marijuana cultivation licenses, Blue Line Protection Group, Inc. (“Blue Line”) has decided not to sponsor a free security and compliance seminar for the Illinois medical marijuana industry.
“We want to make sure that all of our clients, as well as our industry partners, have the latest and most up-to-date information about the Illinois medical marijuana program,” said Michael Jerome, Blue Line’s Director of Media and Public Relations.Â “State mandates and regulations may change between now and when license winners are announced.Â We think it’s prudent to offer our own in-depth seminar at a later date when we have better information about the licensing process and whether or not applicants are going to face new requirements.”
Blue Line had planned to sponsor the free seminar on Thursday, January 15, 2015 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Convention Center at 1850 Convention Center Drive in Tinley Park, Illinois.Â Blue Line corporate staff will not be in attendance.
“We’re committed to bringing our proven success in providing security, transportation and compliance services to the lawful cannabis industry in Illinois,” said Sean Campbell, Blue Line’s Chief Executive Officer. “Even with the state’s recent delay in announcing marijuana licenses, we’ll continue to reach out to license applicants and vendors in Illinois to help establish best business practices and a solid foundation for a secure and legitimate industry.”
Blue Line will sponsor a free medical marijuana seminar at a later date.Â For more information and to register for updates, visit www.BlueLineProtectionGroup.com.
