NEW YORK, February 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a report

by Ameri Research Inc., the global legal cannabis market was valued at $14.3 billion in 2016 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 21.1% between 2017 to 2024 or culminating to $63.5 billion
by 2024. The market is at a period of robust growth, which is attributed to increasing legalization and decriminalization of cannabis products across North America and Europe. The research also explains that because of the complex regulatory structure at state and federal level, the full potential of the market is not yet clear. Data by Arcview Market Research clarifies that growth of the legal cannabis industry will reaccelerate beginning 2018, as adult use sales ramp up in Canada, California, and Massachusetts along with medical sales in Florida.

In a recent report by CNBC, the CEO of the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) Richard Carleton, explained the situation cannabis companies that want to go public, "To get on NYSE and Nasdaq you have to be huge… In Canada you continue to be able to develop public companies in the public space. We know how to do smaller deals for smaller companies on the stock exchange… I have a strong pipeline of Canadian and U.S. companies that have applied to list on the exchange… That tells me that there is a lot of room to grow in terms of build-out of the legal cannabis structure in the U.S."

Global Payout, Inc. (OTC: GOHE) on February 13th announced breaking news according to which, "its majority owned subsidiary, MoneyTrac Technology, Inc. ("MTRAC", the "Company"), has expanded the sales team for its PotSaver brand to extend its reach beyond the San Diego market and into surrounding metro areas including Los Angeles.

Following the official start of legal recreational cannabis in California, several municipalities have been slow to issue recreational licenses to dispensaries. In Los Angeles, for example, this has been a significant challenge as local leaders and regulators have been working diligently to bring the vast array of dispensaries throughout the area into the legal fold. The PotSaver brand prides itself on working only with fully regulated and compliant cannabis companies and as such has watched carefully while these issues have been worked through by local regulators. And as several dispensaries across Los Angeles have begun to receive their licenses, PotSaver has proactively moved forward by adding additional members to its LA-based salesforce to ramp-up efforts for the release of its premier LA publication, which is expected to hit markets in the early part of Q2 2018.

Additionally, PotSaver has added significantly to its San Diego publication by expanding its base of advertisers to businesses outside of cannabis, such as some of the local restaurants and businesses that make up the unique and lively community that is San Diego. These developments are in lock step with the recent agreement signed with EyeChronic.TV to incorporate their digital media platforms into the expanding suite of expanding services offered by MTRAC and PotSaver.

MTRAC CEO Vanessa Luna said "With the recent agreement with EyeChronic, and the newly licensed dispensaries in LA, PotSaver is really in a very unique position to offer advertising services to the dispensaries not available from other companies. In addition to the compliance services offered by MTRAC, and the imminence of an electronic payments solution, MTRAC will be in a very strong position to capitalize on this multibillion dollar market sector."

MTRAC and PotSaver continue to work diligently within the legal recreational market to expand the advertising opportunities and compliance services available to the cannabis industry and are excited to expand into newly formed recreational markets in California."
