Breaking News Segment: Data Points to Strong Growth in Cannabis Businesses and the Need for Security Services


NEW YORK, January 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

Cannabis is becoming increasingly used around the globe due to its therapeutic effects. Although many countries are exploring the cannabis industry for medical purposes, the recreational market is still prosperous. The recreational market is primarily driven by the U.S., even though cannabis is only legalized for recreational use in 10 states and the District of Columbia. However, with Canada's recent legalization of cannabis for both markets last year, a major milestone was reached by the industry. According to data compiled by Verified Market Intelligence, the global cannabis market was valued at USD 42.20 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 466.81 Billion by 2025. Additionally, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 35.3% throughout the forecast period, from 2018 to 2025. The market is expected to continue its acceleration due to the rising use of cannabis for therapeutic applications as well as the widespread legalization. 3 Sixty Risk Solutions Ltd. (CSE: SAFE), Canopy Growth Corporation (NYSE: CGC), Constellation Brands, Inc. (NYSE: STZ), Aurora Cannabis Inc.

The cannabis industry is quickly gaining attention among entrepreneurs. While the majority are looking to become distributors, retailers, or cultivators, the thriving cannabis market has led to the creation of new jobs. Security services have come into the spotlight now that cannabis businesses are in need of protection. Cannabis security companies primarily offer services like camera monitoring or alarm systems, but now cannabis transportation security is being heavily demanded as companies are looking for means to safely deliver cannabis between retail locations and growers. Additionally, due to banks being barred from doing business with cannabis-related entities, they are looking to move their money with the use of armored transportation security services. "Because most major banks are regulated at a federal level, and cannabis is still prohibited federally, businesses that operate in states where cannabis is legal are still unable to put their money in banks or operate business banking accounts. Why does this matter? Well, this creates a need to move large amounts of cash safely, therefore bringing in the need for armored vehicles. Beyond cash, cannabis businesses need a secure way to move valuable products and inventory, and we're talking very valuable products," Chris Laurenzo wrote in a post on The DMS Group.

3 Sixty Risk Solutions Ltd. (CSE: SAFE) listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange under the ticker 'SAFE', just announced breaking security services cannabis news that, "3 Sixty Secure Corp, a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3Sixty, has entered into a three-year master services agreement to provide security services to Canopy Growth Corporation ("Canopy Growth") (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) across Canada.
