So you've packed your bags, loaded your van, and are ready to join the "Green Rush" along with thousands of others looking to try their luck at opening and running successful marijuana dispensaries and businesses in states like Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Alaska and others. The business is big: According to CNBC, the marijuana industry in the U.S alone is worth an estimated $45 billion and it continues to grow. As of January 1, 2014, the state of Colorado became to the first have dispensaries where marijuana could be grown and sold legally.
Because of this legalization, medical dispensaries in Colorado are now able to apply for special licenses that allow them to sell marijuana for medical and recreational use to the public. However, the costs of cannabis retail sales don't come cheap: Marijuana dispensaries and businesses can expect to pay tens of thousands on operating licenses and application fees.
Background checks and residency requirements for business owners are there to make sure that not anyone can start their own dispensary and sell marijuana. Today, marijuana dispensaries are not just in Colorado but have grown to other states like California, Alaska, Florida and the like. Marijuana dispensaries have the added advantage in that they don't only have to sell weed to card-holding patients, but to recreational smokers as well.

There is some good information, primarily about dispensaries.
I would have either discussed Grow Facilities as promised in the title or deleted those 2 words because there is barely a mention of the growing side of the industry.
It inspired me to find a book that talks about what it says it does.
the book was nothing but generalizations and only scratched the surface on Marijuana dispensaries. it did not even mention commercial grows or "grow facilities" I am very disappointed with this writer and book. I am and have been in the industry for some time now, and consult for different clients. I decided to listen to some books while on a long drive and can't stress enough how disappointed I am in this material. the only upside to the entire 22 mins is a brief read (less than a min) on what tyoe of ppw a dispensry may need to start. the narrator did well, only criticism would be the pronunciationof the word indica.
There was literally no information, and as soon as I heard in the beginning that there were dispensaries in Florida, I knew this book was total garbage.
