According to WGRZ, A Group called Anchorage Holdings is the entity opening Buffalo's 1st Medical Marijuana  Dispensary and man are they smart to do so.  I was curious as to who can own a Medical Marijuana Dispensary, or a Marijuana Dispensary in general, as my guess was that you cannot, due to them all be owned and run by the U.S. Govt.  I was wrong.  You can open a dispensary yourself ... now how difficult that is, in terms of being approved and the qualifications, are another story.  I'm assuming it's NOT EASY ... but I could be wrong again.  I'm not interesting in opening a dispensary, I was only curious as to who can, and although I'm not, I discovered that the Marijuana Dispensary overall income for 2017 alone was $3.2 BILLION with there being over 28,000 Cannabis Businesses in the U.S.  However, if you're interested in how you might open a dispensary, click the button below for more details:
