Every once in a while, a state auditor will come to the marijuana dispensary to make sure that all of us are following all of the rules, then as the owner of the marijuana dispensary, I get a detailed report on the findings of the auditor, but the auditor is kind of appreciate a secret shopper, because all of us never suppose when they are going to appear.
They do not have to supply us a heads up and they do not have to supply us with any information while they are there! It is completely and totally 100% anonymous.
I received a report from the auditor and there was a substantial red flag. The auditor mentioned that our apartment brand of concentrate was packaged inproperly according to the state instruction. The auditor mentioned the exact subsection from the instruction. I immediately contacted my lawyer. I have a lawyer that specializes in cannabis law. The lady knows everything there is to suppose about cannabis, the state, and the federal laws. I told the lawyer exactly what the auditor had to say, and she looked at the packaging for the cannabis concentrate. There is a small subsection in the law that states the packages cannot have any brightly colored writing. Apparently the auditor took offense to the yellow lettering on the package. The auditor claimed that it was against the cannabis laws and all of us had to change our packaging and get rid of everything that was inproperly labeled according to the government agency representative. The two of us actually lost $10,000 because of the packaging error. I hired an advertising consultant after that debacle.
