Lessons Learned From a Failed Cannabis Compliance Check
In the legal cannabis industry, it’s incredibly important to pay close attention to local and state regulations to make sure that your shop is always in compliance. Because we’re lucky to be working in the world of legalized cannabis, it’s our duty to show the world that these products can be safe, smart, and well regulated.
When a store fails a compliance check, it’s worth taking a moment to step back and examine why the infraction occurred. Beyond that, take their shortcomings as a lesson for your own cannabis business, and use that knowledge to ensure that your business won’t make the same mistakes.
