It doesn’t take long for a revolution to take place. No matter how much time it might be in the making, it only takes on a slight turn of the tide to overthrow all previously accepted notions revolving around that particular subject matter. Today, one of the biggest revolutions currently taking place is that of the marijuana industry. More and more states are voting for the medicinal and recreational use of cannabis and profiting individually from the growing market that encompasses each new amendment to their state law. Now, the laws can become quite complicated when trying to compare one state to the next, and this article plans to address one particular subject matter for one particular state in those laws: Nevada and their growing market with the recent decriminalization and legalization of recreational marijuana. Because of this new change to their previously held medical marijuana laws, the search for Nevada dispensary security cameras has grown exponentially, allowing us at Security Camera King the opportunity to share our own collected experience in opening up a dispensary in the state of Nevada and maintaining all of the regulations surrounding both medicinal and recreational dispensary laws. As a provider of Nevada dispensary security cameras, Security Camera King has actually been involved in the cannabis industry as a wholesale distributor or security and surveillance equipment since Colorado became the first state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Since then, as of 2017, these are the states that now permit using marijuana recreationally:
- Washington, D.C.
With our offices in Wheat Ridge, CO Boca Raton, FL, Security Camera King has been on the forefront of each of these new amendments to the cannabis business. What we have collectively experienced is a long, drawn-out, complicated set of regulations that call for strict compliance surrounding surveillance of both medical and recreational dispensaries as well as associated grow-houses. Nevada only implemented their newly passed law allowing recreational use of marijuana as recently as July 2017. With the recreational regulations just now being fully underway, we have seen a steep rise in marijuana dispensaries throughout the state of Nevada.
- Clark County: 80 estimated marijuana dispensaries
- Washoe County: 20 estimated marijuana dispensaries
- Carson County: 4 estimated dispensaries
- Additional 14 Counties: 2 estimated dispensaries
What we have learned in our experience with assisting the opening of dispensaries in states already allowing the sale and use of recreational marijuana is that the security measures differ between dispensaries for medical marijuana and dispensaries for recreational marijuana. The latter of the two comes under much stricter regulations for the security of the property and product. Here are what the current marijuana laws in effect in Nevada have to say about surveillance and security monitoring for a dispensary or grow house.
- NRS 453A.370 Regulations: The Division shall adopt such regulations as it determines to be necessary or advisable to carry out the provisions of NRS 453A.320 to 453A.370, inclusive. Such regulations are in addition to any requirements set forth in statute and must, without limitation:
- Prescribe the form and any additional required content of registration and renewal applications submitted pursuant to NRS 453A.322 and 453A.332.
- Set forth rules pertaining to the safe and healthful operation of medical marijuana establishments, including, without limitation:
- (a) The manner of protecting against diversion and theft without imposing an undue burden on medical marijuana establishments or compromising the confidentiality of the holders of registry identification cards and letters of approval.
- (b) Minimum requirements for the oversight of medical marijuana establishments.
- (c) Minimum requirements for the keeping of records by medical marijuana establishments.
- (d) Provisions for the security of medical marijuana establishments, including, without limitation, requirements for the protection by a fully operational security alarm system of each medical marijuana establishment.
These are only the released regulations for a medical marijuana dispensary. As you can see, the language is difficult to decipher and allows those regulating the sale of marijuana a lot of leeway in deciding what is and is not in compliance. At Security Camera King we have found specifically that this lax manner in defining security regulations is exactly what has come to be the downfall of many dispensaries hoping to create their own stand in the marijuana revolution.

There is no reason you should feel that this is a venture you have to go into blind and alone, and we at Security Camera King implore you to seek us out to help keep you and your marijuana business in compliance with the latest regulations so that you can maintain the integrity of your legitimate business.
