Cannabis security is a rapidly growing industry that is necessary due to compliance with state and local government mandates. Led by veterans in the physical security industry, MPSI emerged in January 2014. Since then, MPSI has served as a go-to for the cannabis industry through mentoring of new entrepreneurs entering the market to serving existing cannabis businesses. The Murrieta, California-based Company has expanded its reach to serve multiple legalized medical and recreational marijuana states and has established a location in Denver, Colorado.
The cannabis industry is well-known for its “cash and carry” nature. When asked about a new trend of unmarked vehicles and untrained staff transporting cannabis for deliveries in an article by Bloomberg Business, MPSI CEO Michael Julian, states, “Making it work will require more of the marijuana businesses to turn to the professional couriers and give up transporting their cash and high-value product by themselves.”
Julian encourages cannabis business owners to seek the services of trained and certified security experts for inventory and cash transport. The high risk of such cash transports was raised during a recent feature on MPSI by CNN Money. Julian feels there is more risk with traditional armored vehicle transport of high-volume cash deposits than the services that MPSI provides.
MPSI is leading the current and future legal cannabis markets by providing critical security services. Industry-specific services provided by MPSI include: armed and unarmed security for retail and grow operations, electronic security and surveillance, armored vehicle inventory and revenue transport, secure cash storage, compliance oversight, and workplace protection for medical and adult recreational use.
In addition to CNN Money and Bloomberg Business, MPSI was featured by Bloomberg TV and at an international cannabis business-to-business conferences by: Fox 5 News, ABC 13 and CBS 8 in Las Vegas. For more information on MPSI, visit www.Security-MPSI.com.
