Do Marijuana Dispensaries Need Security?
The lines around the legality, use, and distribution of marijuana are hazy, with state and federal governments directly conflicting in their interpretations. The picture changes from one state to another as state laws in recent years have opened up to marijuana. As things stand, 11 of the 50 states allow the recreational use of marijuana, with a total of 33 giving the green light for medical purposes. That leaves a great deal of black-market demand for medical marijuana dispensaries to deal with, making its sale a high risk-business.
What’s more, many banks are turning down money from Marijuana sales because of the fear of federal rule breaches. Dispensaries consequently have to store large sums of cash onsite, further elevating the risk factor. Just like banks that steer clear of dispensaries, some big-name security companies, like ADT, for example, also shy from partnering with such businesses, citing the federal illegality of marijuana. It can, therefore, be hard for dispensaries to get qualified and proven security providers for their business.
A combination of factors such as the above makes security an incessant headache for dispensaries. Here’s how and why Off Duty Officers are the best to turn to for your marijuana dispensary security needs.
