As the legal cannabis industry grows, concerns about criminal activities naturally increase. How are you securing your cannabis business?

Are security cameras alone sufficient for your security needs?

On-site crime losses can devastate businesses. Crime deterrence requires the right combination of services tailored to your specific site.

Not all security vendors are equal. If your site faces a significant risk of fires, the involvement of a specialized fire alarm company is crucial for a comprehensive solution.

Security poses unique challenges for the cannabis industry. Both dispensaries and growth facilities deal with substantial amounts of cash and operate under varying regulations across states. The threat of crime from skilled criminals, as well as internal risks from employees, necessitates finding the right cannabis security solutions. Here are some tips to help you get started:


Implement training, awareness programs, physical barriers, and strong internal controls to discourage criminal activities.


Utilize electronic monitoring systems such as alarms and closed-circuit television (CCTV) to detect suspicious activities and ensure alert personnel are in place.


Create delays in criminal activities through the installation of barriers, robust security interventions, and multiple layers of protection (Defense-in-Depth).


Our comprehensive security measures and procedures will effectively prevent criminal activities and unwanted incidents in your building or office.

Key Considerations for Cannabis Security:

  Understand the specific requirements of your local jurisdiction
  Choose a scalable and flexible cannabis security solution.
  Ensure the visibility of your surveillance system.
  Early detection and real-time warnings are paramount.

As the medical marijuana industry expands, many patients are opting for mobile medical marijuana collectives to provide safe access to their medication. In light of recent attacks on storefront dispensaries, setting up a medical marijuana delivery service offers a less confrontational alternative. Delivery services can operate legally under California state law and enjoy the same legal protections as collective cultivation. The medical marijuana collective lawyers at Cannabis Law Group can assist you in establishing your medical marijuana delivery service.
