Security Guards for Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

With the expansion on medical marijuana use, dispensaries have quickly gained notoriety and become a staple of many towns with the right to lawfully sell and make use of this natural plant. Due to the increased interest in medical marijuana dispensaries, it’s important that these establishments remain protected against the possibility of crime. Dispensaries are likely targets for criminal activity especially theft, break-ins and vandalism.


As the owner of a medical marijuana dispensary, make sure everyone and everything inside is always protected by hiring around the clock security guards. Hiring security will only deter criminals and help keep everything safe from harm during and outside of operation hours. All states that passed laws allowing medical marijuana dispensaries, including California are required to have substantial amounts of security. After Proposition 64 passed in the Los Angeles area, there are over 1,700 dispensaries that abide by these laws.

State Requirements for Security at a Dispensary

Absolutely all medical marijuana dispensaries are required to have video surveillance as well as onsite security. In some cities, the dispensary is required to submit their security plans to the police department. Make sure you are aware of all local, state and federal laws so that you can remain in compliance and avoid penalties leading to the closure of your establishment.
