- Mike Haridopolos joins Bruce Starr, Gary Johnson and Curt Bramble on REFG’s advisory board, all from states where medical marijuana is legal – Florida, Oregon, Utah and New Mexico
- Jeremy Roberts, CEO of REFG, says that naming Haridopolos is an asset to the company, helping to expand its footprint and achieve its corporate objectives
- REFG, a payment processor and industrial hemp grower with plans to operate a mobile hemp CBD extraction lab, is increasing its role in the legalized cannabis industry
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG) is intensifying its focus on cannabis by adding to its advisory board another prominent political figure from a state in which medical marijuana has been legalized, namely Mike Haridopolos, former president of the Florida State Senate. He joins other board members including Bruce Starr of Oregon, Gary Johnson of New Mexico and Curt Bramble of Utah (http://nnw.fm/qNbp3).
Haridopolos also joins James Gray of Kentucky, who was formerly a U.S. vice presidential candidate on the Libertarian ticket. He is now mayor of Lexington, Kentucky. A bi-partisan sponsored bill legalizing medical marijuana has been introduced but not passed by the Kentucky state legislature (http://nnw.fm/i5MLg). However, the Kentucky secretary of state favors the measure.
REFG has a diverse commitment to the cannabis industry. It acquired SpeedyGrow, a Wyoming-based firm licensed to grow and process hemp in Colorado (http://nnw.fm/Ukpg8). REFG says that it will also apply for state licenses to grow industrial hemp in Utah (http://nnw.fm/ukZ3E) and Vermont (http://nnw.fm/7DBe7).
REFG, a Nevada-based firm, has reached agreement in principle with Paper Lantern, LLC to acquire the rights to operate a mobile hemp CBD extraction lab. It also continues to offer Green, a FinCEN compliant comprehensive financial system designed for licensed cannabis dispensaries and retail merchants who require an alternative to traditional banking. It is available for online signup (http://nnw.fm/CzoN3).
In a news release, REFG’s Roberts said of Haridopolos, “With his experience working on Florida’s legislation, working to solve the prescription drug crisis and his experience in politics across the nation, he helps us expand our footprint and will help us achieve our corporate objectives.”
