I recently read a news article about the owner of a marijuana store getting into big trouble for doing some illegal acts within his business.
- Obviously, these stores have been legalized but there are still a lot of rules that go into making the business legitimate.
In order for a marijuana store to operate legally, they must undergo many inspections and be in good standing with those who perform their monthly inspections. For one marijuana store owner, this was not what he was doing. He was using the marijuana store as a front to launder money from an illegal exotic animal exchange. He had a fascination with animals and was interested in trading them on the black market. He used the marijuana store as his front so as not to draw any suspicion to his large sums of income coming in weekly. The marijuana store was run by young adults who really did not understand what they were doing. The marijuana shop was shut down pretty soon after the government got an idea of what was going on behind the scenes. It was unfortunate that that shop owner did not care about the marijuana store because it really could have been a success in this neighborhood. I am wondering if someone else will take over and open a marijuana store here. This neighborhood is such a good place for a marijuana store. It would be a shame to see a great opportunity to go waste.
