Marijuana Video Surveillance and Cameras Often Mandatory

Posted by Rick Charney on Oct 20, 2016

Marijuana video surveillance cameras are mandatory at many medical marijuana dispensaries and recreational marijuana stores. Weed stores and marijuana dispensaries can be found in Colorado, California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and other states.

Recreational and medical marijuana use has not been nationally legalized. As a result, marijuana shops, farms, warehouses, and distribution centers have their own set of unique problems. Banks refuse to work with weed shops. Retail marijuana sales are only paid with cash. This means that there is always a lot of cash on-site, which makes cannabis stores and grow houses attractive targets to thieves.
