Being a Good Neighbor Part II

Being a Good Neighbor Part II

In an earlier article, we discussed “Being a Good Neighbor” in which we talked specifically about being a good neighbor in the literal sense; a good tenant, a good co-business, a good citizen in your community. In this article, we will discuss another type of “Good Neighbor”, being a good steward of the Cannabis industry. We will hit upon three (3) topics: being involved in the process of making necessary changes for the good of the industry, being a good retail partner in dealing with grower/processors, and leading your retail team by example.

(That’s right) You must choose brothers, you must choose.

Rob Hendrix writes on the choices communities must undertake in regulated states with regard to regulation or a thriving black market. There is no in between. To paraphrase brother Wayne Kramer and the MC5, “Brothers and sisters, the time has come for each and every one of you to decide whether you are going to be the problem or whether you are going to be the solution (That’s right) You must choose brothers, you must choose… It’s Time To Kick Out the Jams………

Does The History Of The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board Inform Some The Current Issues The Board Is Having With Field Enforcement Officers & Internal Culture

Rob Hendrix of Cannabis Consulting Nationwide investigates. “I have been asked to write a story that attempts to deal with very real problems with the roll out of 502 in general and in particular how the evolution of our regulatory framework has been affected by the WSLCB, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, more typically today known as the LCB. First, a brief history.”

To Be The Model Recreational Cannabis Store Is All About Relationships

To Be The Model Recreational Cannabis Store Is All About Relationships

As many of you know, I own a State legal Cannabis retail shop in my hometown of Ellensburg, Washington. Its called Cannabis Central of Ellensburg. My store motto, aka Mission Statement is: “To be the model recreational Cannabis store in the State of Washington”. The “model”. To me it means being the best, not necessarily the biggest, but the most well run, clean, efficient, respected, etc establishment in the industry.

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

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.
