I live in Seattle, and I'm hearing each dispensary makes like $250K in revenue PER month.
That's some mind boggling numbers, so I looked into starting one. Unfortunately, the window for applications is now closed, but it got me thinking:
A) First off, why isn't the government allowing more pot retailers to open? Is there some shady dealing going on between existing dispensaries to limit # of retailers to limit competition, in exchange for some kick back?
B) Second, why are existing dispensaries all in some run down, tiny a** shops (very few have legit looking stores opened up)
C) Third, why aren't more people clamoring to start a dispensary? Seems way more profitable than opening another yoga studio, restaurant, etc.
