When you have prescription drugs, either because you are a pharmacy or because you are a legal medical marijuana dispensary, you could face a problem with security. Pharmaceuticals such as opiates are just as popular on the black market as marijuana and more illegal substances.
You might find your dispensary a target for habitual criminals and drug addicts as well. Good security is essential and not just because of the company’s bottom line. If, after a robbery, it is found that your security is lax, you could face charges of criminal negligence.
A Cash Business
If you do fall under the category of marijuana distributor, you have a few extra security concerns to consider. No matter how carefully you go about the licensing process, and how carefully you adhere to state law, there are still incidences when being in this line of work causes you problems.
A lot of the bigger banks will not deal with you because the medical marijuana industry is something of a gray area these days. This could mean that you are not able to offer card payment facilities and have to accept cash instead.
So now you have two strikes against you – you are selling marijuana, and you are likely to have large amounts of cash on hand as well.
In addition, getting security can be problematic. Many of the big security firms refuse to provide security based on the fact that these services, while state-sanctioned, are not sanctioned by the federal government.
Add in the general stigma associated with being a distributor – many cops still view the practice as illegal, despite the state laws to the contrary and you are left with a bit of a sticky situation. How quickly will the police roll out if there is a problem? How hard will they investigate a theft?
