BRIDGE Energy Group, a leading consulting and systems integration company focused on improving utility operational performance, today announced their appearance on the annual Inc. 500|5000 list for the fifth consecutive year. Less than 20% of companies hold the distinction of making the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll list as five-time honorees for the fastest growing companies in the nation.

“Achieving this distinction for the 5th consecutive year confirms BRIDGE’s expertise in delivering solutions for a more reliable, efficient and secure grid,” said David E.

United Patients Group – Leading Medical Cannabis Information Website Simplifies Current Cannabis Laws By State


San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 12, 2014

Cannabis legislation has been all over the news lately. New York just became the twenty-third state to legalize medical cannabis, and a day later, Washington state’s first recreational marijuana dispensaries opened their doors. Activists have successfully brought cannabis-related initiatives to the November ballot in three states and Washington, DC, and many other state legislatures are working on relaxing cannabis regulations.

In light of all these changes, United Patients Group thought it would be a good time to put together a comprehensive list of which states allow medical cannabis, which states allow recreational cannabis, and which states have pending legislation or ballot initiatives in 2014.

“Cannabis laws vary tremendously from state to state, and they have been changing faster than ever in recent years,” says John Malanca, founder and owner of United Patients Group, a trusted advocate and news source for medical cannabis patients. “We wanted to give a comprehensive overview of where each state stands and where each state is headed.”

Colorado and Washington are currently the only two states that regulate and tax recreational cannabis use. Since the law went into effect on January 1, Colorado has collected $ 11 million in tax revenue to fund education. Washington dispensaries opened on Tuesday, and the state is expecting to reap millions in taxes to fund its healthcare plan and the General Fund.

Three state legislatures passed medical marijuana bills this year: Minnesota on May 30, Maryland on June 1, and New York on July 5. This brings the total number of states that allow legal access to medical cannabis up to twenty-three states plus Washington, DC.

“It has been an incredible year for medical cannabis—and the year is only half over!” exclaims Malanca. “As more people become educated about the benefits of cannabis for treating a wide array of serious ailments, it becomes impossible to deny patients access to the medicine that helps them most.”

Even conservative states that have remained staunchly anti-cannabis have started to relax their stance a bit. This year, eleven states approved the use of a non-psychoactive cannabis derivative, CBD oil, to treat childhood epilepsy. After an affecting series of reports by Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN about how this oil was the only medicine that worked for a group of children with severe epilepsy, governors in Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah and Wisconsin signed bills that allow its use. Legislatures in Missouri and North Carolina have approved similar bills, and the governors are expected to sign them soon.

“We applaud these states for recognizing that these children deserve access to medicine that makes an incredible difference to their seizures. We want to point out, however, that many parents find medicine that has more THC in it to be even more effective,” notes Malanca. “And while CBD oil helps with epilepsy, different strains and extracts of cannabis are effective at treating other diseases—including cancer, Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, depression, and many others. All patients in these states deserve full access to medical cannabis.”

Looking to the rest of 2014, United Patients Group sees promising activity all over the country. This November, voters in Alaska, DC, and Oregon will have the opportunity to legalize recreational cannabis, which will be regulated and taxed similarly to Colorado and Washington. Voters in Florida will have the opportunity to legalize medical cannabis.

State legislatures are working on cannabis laws, too. This session, many states have considered or are considering legalizing medical marijuana, treating cannabis like alcohol, reducing penalties for marijuana possession, and allowing industrial hemp.

Malanca concludes, “It’s heartening to see that so many states are taking steps to change their unjust cannabis laws, but we still have a lot of work to do to make sure that all Americans can have safe, legal access to the medicine they need.”

Google AdWords Class for Small Business Announced by JM Internet Group


New York, NY (PRWEB) February 14, 2014

The JM Internet Group (http://www.jm-seo.org), a leader in AdWords training for small business, has announced its February, 2014 schedule for Google AdWords training, set to begin February 28th. AdWords is Google’s pay-per-click advertising program. A business pays if, and only if, web surfers click on its ads on Google. Many people think of SEO and AdWords as in opposition to each other, whereas in fact the two can (and should) work together. In this two class session, online class students will be taught the fundamental do’s and don’t’s in Google AdWords, and will be taught economic strategies within their AdWords campaigns.

“Google AdWords can be very difficult to understand for the average small business marketer,” explained Jason McDonald, Director of the JM Internet Group. “I’ve seen small businesses spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars in their online advertising campaigns, with zero return of investment due to their lack of knowledge of how to properly use Google AdWords. In this informative AdWords training for small business, I show students from start to finish how to minimize advertising spending while maximizing their return on investment.”
