This presentation delves into the integral role of neighborhood dispensaries within medical marijuana communities and states, highlighting the deep connections formed between dispensary staff and their clients.

The speaker, the owner of Proud Mary Cannabis, shares insights into the multifaceted responsibilities that come with operating a dispensary, emphasizing not just the provision of medical cannabis but also the creation of a welcoming, safe environment for all. Through personal anecdotes and professional experience, the presentation explores how dispensaries can be more than just retail spaces—they can be vital resources for physical and mental health support, community engagement, and even public safety. By fostering open communication and genuinely connecting with clients, dispensary owners and staff can uncover and address broader community needs, from health concerns to social issues such as domestic violence and sex trafficking.
