In a few short months marijuana will be fully legalized in Oregon for recreational use. From state to state, regulations for marijuana vendors are different. They do, however, have one major similarity – a list of specific video security requirements.
Although these requirements are comprehensive, their purpose is to offer you complete intrusion detection and protection against theft and criminal activity.
Here is a basic rundown of the four major surveillance requirements for marijuana vendors in Oregon so you can ensure that your business has a commercial security system that is compliant with requirements.
