Integrated Cannabis Solutions, Inc. Focuses on Regulatory Challenges for New and Existing Legal Cannabis Businesses

BALTIMORE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Integrated Cannabis Solutions, Inc. (OTC Pink: IGPK) (PINKSHEETS: IGPK) announced today that its core focus will be on providing regulatory assistance to new and existing legal cannabis businesses that are trying to navigate their way through this heavily regulated industry.

The legal marijuana industry has experienced explosive growth and five year projections according to a report from ArcView Market Research published in 2013 estimates the worth to be $10.2 billion. With growth comes opportunity and new businesses are launching at aggressive rates in an attempt to capitalize on the cannabis industry. The biggest challenges facing many of these new and existing companies are the vast regulatory and compliance issues. Integrated Cannabis Solutions will provide experts in Regulatory Affairs to educate, inform and assist clients to be successful in this industry.

Lawmakers in Colorado and Washington have recognized that legal marijuana can provide strong economic growth. The amount of tax revenue in Colorado on legal marijuana sales in the first two months of 2014 has been estimated at $6.17 million. In addition to economic growth, it has been reported that responsible cannabis businesses will decrease the illegal drug trafficking of marijuana. According to a 2012 study by the Mexican Institute of Competitiveness, legalization in Colorado will cost cartels $1.425 billion annually. While Washington state's legal market is burgeoning, the study says it would cost cartels $1.372 billion. The legalization in these two states would push the cartels' annual revenues down 20 to 30 percent, and cut revenue to the Sinaloa Cartel by 50 percent.

"We are excited by the enormous opportunity of this explosive industry. Our focus has been dictated by industry demand and a passion to assist public and private companies to become successful and compliant in the cannabis industry within the boundaries of the law," stated Alphonse Rojas, CEO of Integrated Cannabis Solutions, Inc.
