What does someone need to know/do before opening a dispensary?

This! I worked for several years in CO, and you have to know and understand all the regulations from the Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) that are enforced by the state. They track product from production to sale with RFID tags, down to the weight of moisture loss from bud using the METRC database. On the business side, never allow your employees to let “loopers” into your shop. It’s a great way to get a sting operation. If you don’t stay in line, say hello to fines, losing your business license, or getting arrested. There’s a lot more bureaucracy in running a cannabis dispensary than you could ever imagine.
