Are you considering opening a medical marijuana delivery service? Do you live in a state where medical marijuana delivery is legal? If so, it can be a very lucrative and fulfilling career choice. You will get to build a business to be proud of while helping so many people.
You may have some concerns about the safety of this business. Though there may be legitimate concerns with safety when owning and operating your own medical marijuana business, there are simple and easy ways to address every concern.
Worried about break-ins? Totally understandable, as the main things robbers look for are money and drugs!
Since you have chosen to go with a delivery service for your medical marijuana business, you are going to take the product to the customers. Therefore, no customers come to you, so there is no need to advertise your address.
By opening a medical marijuana delivery service instead of a dispensary, you have virtually eliminated yourself as a target for a break-in.
It is important to keep your vehicle properly maintained at all times. You never want to put yourself in a vulnerable situation that could easily be avoided.
Imagine this scenario… you’re on your way to make a weed delivery, when your car suddenly runs out of gas. You are stranded on the side of the highway, with a backseat full of marijuana bags and envelopes of cash. Now what? Maybe nothing. But still, why take that chance?
On that note, do not advertise your business on your car!
Also, make sure your driver’s license and registration are up to date at all times and keep your car fully insured in case of an accident.
Keep as little product and money in the marijuana delivery vehicle as possible. It is best practice to only take what you need.
Make sure all your clients have a valid medical ID card and a recommendation from their doctor.
Take the time to get directions and familiarize yourself with the area in which you are delivering marijuana. If certain parts of town make you uncomfortable, do not deliver there. Any money you could make is not worth risking your safety.
Keep a cell phone on you at all times, and let someone know where you are going when leaving to make a weed delivery. Depending on your situation, you want to carry mace with you for protection. Bring a partner or employee with you if that will make you feel more comfortable.
Always follow your gut feeling. If a situation doesn’t feel right, get out immediately.
It is important to keep your new medical marijuana delivery business safe on the legal side of things, too. Verify that this type of business is allowed where you live, and that you follow all rules and regulations when establishing your marijuana business. For example, you must have licensees for both the state and city you plan to run the medical marijuana delivery service in. You may also need a license for the county.
Follow these steps and you are on the safe road to opening your very own medical marijuana delivery business!
