Do You Have a Marijuana Security Plan?

We’ll assist in the state application procedures for acquiring a medical marijuana business license by writing a holistic security plan, which is a required component of this process. Get started with a free consultation    


From clients who are just beginning the process to those who are challenged by a specific security need, The Lake Forest Group can help you grow your medical marijuana business through improved security measures. Whether you are applying for a cultivation or dispensary license, we have the institutional knowledge of this industry to provide a competitive advantage to our clients. The security plan is written in accordance with all state regulatory guidelines to ensure full compliance. This methodology is based on our familiarity and proficiency with best practiced-based security operations tailored uniquely to the medical marijuana and recreational cannabis industry.

The medical marijuana security plan addresses the following areas:

  • Technology (e.g., IP cameras, automated access control, and intrusion detection systems)
  • Physical security (e.g., fences, gates, doors, vaults, safes, and construction material)
  • Process enhancements (e.g., security policies, incident response procedures, and emergency preparedness planning)
  • Personnel (e.g., background screening and training)
  • Liaison with critical third parties (e.g., state officials) and first responders (e.g., police and fire)

In addition to the licensing process, we also serve our medical marijuana clients as an outsourced Chief Security Officer. The scope of these services addresses a wide range of areas including, but not limited to: creation of security directives and guidelines; physical security measures, including access control measures and practices and the ability to screen and filter all personnel, services, deliveries, and equipment seeking access; implementation, use, and effectiveness of security systems and technologies, such as closed-circuit surveillance equipment, exterior and perimeter security systems and monitoring, electronic access control systems, automated alerts, and information-sharing capabilities.
