iCrowdNewswire - Jan 2, 2018

NEW YORK,  —

 

According to a report by Ameri Research Inc., the global legal cannabis market was valued at $14.3 billion in 2016 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 21.1% between 2017 to 2024 and culminating to $63.5 billion by 2024. The market is going through a period of strong growth thanks to increasing legalization and decriminalization of cannabis products across North America and Europe. The report indicates that legalization wave is moving beyond the U.S. region. In 2017, the Canadian prime minister has introduced a bill to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes. The proposed bill mandates the legal age for consumption of cannabis at 18 years, and provides clarity on the federal and state laws in regulating the cultivation, storage and distribution of cannabis across the country.

Strong sales in the cannabis market resulted in economic growth in states where sales of cannabis products are legal. The Ameri Research Inc. explains that, “Growing user base for recreational marijuana in states such as ColoradoCaliforniaAlaskaMassachusettsWashington DC and other states is a key factor boosting the tax revenues. For instance, in 2016 Colorado reported revenues exceeding 1.1 billion from the sale of marijuana products and the tax collected from the sale of these products is diverted into specific community development projects such as the construction of schools and infrastructure development, which is anticipated to improve the overall economy of the region.”

Global Payout, Inc. (OTC: GOHE) on November 28th the company announced that, “its majority owned subsidiary, MoneyTrac Technology, Inc. (“MTRAC”, the “Company”) has established a key strategic partnership with T&T Financial to shore-up and bolster the sales and marketing related services that MTRAC is delivering to many of the underserved businesses in the emerging cannabis industry.

Over the past several weeks, MTRAC has been working in collaboration with additional partners in the financial services sector to lay the groundwork for the banking solutions they intend to offer retailers and suppliers who are operating fully compliant businesses in cannabis. This newly executed partnership with T&T Financial will provide MTRAC with critical sales and marketing support for the banking services and solutions they will be offering to an industry that is currently in dire need of an effective and practical solution to support the massive amount of commerce that currently exists within it.

It is MTRAC’s intent to position itself to launch their banking services as soon as possible as it recognizes the need for it amongst businesses will be stronger than ever in 2018 as cannabis becomes recreational in one of the nation’s largest economic states, California. And as the Company moves forward with this objective, they will look to establish additional partnerships with companies, such as T&T Financial, whose existing services and solutions can be leveraged by MTRAC to develop and offer the most powerful and effective banking solution available in the industry.
