In the last few years, the legalization of medical marijuana has been worked on by several US states. Because of the approval of medical marijuana, investors have found a huge opportunity to start new ventures. At present, the legal marijuana market's value in the US is pegged at $1.44 billion. It also has a national market potential of $10.2 billion for the next five years, the report detailed.

TechnoConcepts Inc is a Colorado-based wireless tech firm that owns intellectual properties and patents. It is also a solutions provider to companies in the regulated cannabis sector, MarketWatch reported.
