SAN DIEGO, April 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Wellness Managed Services' new company, MPS International (MPSI) has been awarded a large annual physical security contract with the Denver Mart. The Denver Mart is the Rocky Mountain region's premier wholesale marketplace and was established in 1965. The venue is the hub for thousands of domestic and international events throughout the year and is the region's largest exposition, trade show and conference meeting facility, with approximately 400,000 sq. ft. of commercial space.
The Denver Mart selected MPSI from a field of several security agencies. "It's always nice to work with a company that has the same core values and discipline, not to mention we share the same kind of customer service mindset," said Ken Williams, Director, Event Sales and Operations for the Denver Mart. "We decided on MPS International because the company stayed on top of the bidding process, and showed a sincere interest in winning the business. It's easy for us when we can guarantee security across all points of coverage."
"At the end of the day, the Denver Mart contract with MPS International is worth approximately $250,000.
"As a result of the contract, MPS International will get 75% of the security contracts through our recommendations for additional events, too," concluded Williams. MSPI most recently provided security services for The Denver Mart for multiple cannabis industry events throughout the historic "420 weekend."
Investors should be aware that this business model supports state-level legal cannabis industry events. These types of events will increase in number and frequency in additional markets as cannabis legalization continues to proliferate across the United States.

Patrol the venue and outside property
