Cannabis Consulting Nationwide What We Do & Why We Do It…

Cannabis Consulting Nationwide What We Do & Why We Do It…

Good morning. My name is Rob Hendrix and I am the founder of Cannabis Consulting Nationwide. I came to this place by taking the leap of faith in Washington State’s Initiative 502 which as you probably are aware created the legal, adult-use Cannabis market in Washington State. I opened my retail Cannabis shop, Cannabis Central of Ellensburg, on August 25, 2014. The vetting process to make myself eligible for the Lottery system in order to obtain a retail Cannabis was in a word, grueling. Opening the shop was a shock; to my community, my friends, my family.

Interviewing & Managing Cannabis Dispensary Staff

In Washington State, since the Cole Memo has been essentially rescinded, the Attorney General of the US has left it up to the Regional US Attorneys to decide if and how how to prosecute Cannabis-related crimes. The Eastern Washington US Attorney is known to be somewhat conservative and likely to pursue the alleged crime with some energy and enthusiasm. This revelation is scary and I mean for it be exactly that.

“We need to internalize this idea of excellence. Not many folks spend a lot of time trying to be excellent.” Barack Obama

This is still a misunderstood and therefore a controversial industry. I have worked very hard to honor and abide by my mission statement. And excellence ladies and gentlemen is how we will turn people’s negative opinions around. Excellence in how we run our store, excellence in how we understand and welcome and endeavor to deal effectively while being empathetic to with people’s fears. Excellence in how we work with government at all levels in creating a regulatory environment that is fair and workable and sustainable for all, especially frankly those who are concerned about Cannabis in society. Excellence in our hiring, training, managing our employees, always insisting our employees be respectful to all at all times.

Dispensary Design & The Importance Of Making Your Retail Space Female Friendly

Dispensary Design & The Importance Of Making Your Retail Space Female Friendly

The problem was that I felt very strongly women would not feel comfortable in these environments. I firmly believe we need to run our shops so that women, over 21 of course!, feel safe, secure, comfortable, and clean! After being in some these early shops, which felt more like head shops to me, I felt the need to immediately go home and shower!

Selling To A Minor: “I will never attempt to minimize the importance of never, ever selling to a minor.”

Selling To A Minor: “I will never attempt to minimize the importance of never, ever selling to a minor.”

We have a list of acceptable forms of ID here in Washington State. And it is the law that no one under 21 can even be on the premises let alone purchase product. (There are exceptions for minors who possess a State legal medical authorization card, but that’s a cumbersome discussion to attempt here so I’ll save it for another article). There are actually different rules pertaining to acceptable forms of ID for purchasing Cannabis than tobacco and/or alcohol. It’s much more stringent for Cannabis, of course!

Canada Needs To Conquer The Gray Market

Canada Needs To Conquer The Gray Market

There is a flourishing “gray” market in Canada. By definition a “gray” market is very nearly a “black” market in reality. It is not subject to the same rigid controls, laws and restraints that the “legal” shops have to contend with. But, in an ironic twist, the gray market stores are the only ones who can satisfy demand and take care of the Cannabis consuming public.

Fake ID’s , The State’s Burden… Your Burden.

The burden is not totally on retail, State licensed Cannabis stores nowawdays to root out those with alternative and ultimately illegal forms of identification. But there will be responsibility and as a result you’re likely to hear that dreaded phrase, “Use due diligence”.

Inventory Control of a Controlled Substance

Inventory Control of a Controlled Substance

Rob Hendrix Cannabis Consulting Nationwide writes….”In the continuing discussion regarding overall retail Cannabis retail security, today we’ll be talking about inventory control. All businesses regardless of type require tight and ongoing inventory control measures. Many “mainstream”businesses however take a physical inventory annually or perhaps semi-annually. This is totally inadequate for Cannabis retail for many reasons.”
