Potlines app helps marijuana users stay on the right path

Potlines is an app that will send users an alert as to differing state marijuana laws.

 

WASHINGTON, June 7, 2015 – Marijuana is already legal for medical and recreational use in the District of Columbia. Alaska, Oregon, Washington and Colorado also allow recreational use and possession of cannabis.

Twenty-three states from Maine to California allow medical marijuana use. But if you are taking a road trip from the NorthEastern shore to Southern California, there are a lot of states in between where marijuana is still illegal.

iGROW opens four regional offices to launch their B to B sales strategy

“Being local is one of the keys to success in this industry” says Cary Senders, who along with his brother Eric are the managing partners of FSS Hydro LLC of Beachwood, Ohio and manufacturers of iGROW. iGROW is an agricultural lighting technology company using induction lighting as its light source.

iGROW induction is an alternate light technology that has gained a significant foothold in the cannabis industry, in no small part due to the company’s strategy of having local offices in every major market. “Being headquartered in Ohio, currently a non-medicinal state, was a challenge for us, since all the major markets are located out west.
