BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Apr 11, 2014) - Surna Inc. (
CNN's Fortune.com article states, "'This is the next gold rush,' says (Surna CEO) Bollich, in the midst of glad-handing potential customers. 'It's kind of like Internet gaming was when Zynga started, except this isn't a hits-driven business. People get tired of games, but I haven't seen many people who get tired of pot.'"
"Surna expects to eventually expand into other industries -- including broader agriculture and server farms -- and to move up from its OTC listing to the NYSE Amex. But, for now, it's working to gain traction in one of America's fastest-growing markets."

TheStreet.com's Main Street article reports, "'I see a lot of parallels in social gaming and cannabis,' Bollich said. 'When we launched Zynga, social gaming wasn't even an industry yet. Everyone was trying everything but there was nothing specific. The cannabis industry has the same feel to it. Everyone is trying to figure what they are going to do.'"
"The only difference this time is that Bollich knows exactly what to do next..."
Last month Surna merged with Safari Resource Group, a holding company for cannabis and other indoor agriculture climate control equipment intellectual property. Subsequently, it announced a definitive agreement to acquire Boulder-based Hydro Innovations which it plans to close in the second quarter of 2014.
