I had a lot of trouble when I wanted to open a cannabis lounge and dispensary.
It didn’t matter that I had plenty of money from a settlement and lawsuit.
I had to go through the same process as every other person trying to pursue their dreams. After three months, I had not heard a word from the business licensing administration. I called several times and I waited on hold for hours without talking to anyone. I was worried that my application fees would end up in someone’s pocket. I paid nearly $2,000 for the business application and permits for the cannabis business. I had to break down and hire a cannabis consulting and marketing service. Luckily the guy knew a lot about the red tape and government regulations. He helped grease the wheels and the application went through a week after we retained the cannabis consulting service. Things went smooth for a long time after that. The store was newly opened and we had a grand opening celebration that attracted hundreds of new customers. The store died down after the grand opening celebration and the sales haven’t recovered. I decided to contact the cannabis consulting service again. They offered ample help, but at a premium rate. One of the biggest problems seemed to be the lack of a website for the cannabis dispensary. The cannabis consulting service recommended a web design firm to help with the setup and recommended this as the next step in the process. I really hope this will boost our sales or i am going to drown in debt from this failed project.
