HARDCAR Secures Major California Cannabis Distribution License (Type 11 – Medical)
As California leads the cannabis movement forward, recent licensing throughout the state is allowing companies to expand, and HARDCAR Distribution is well prepared for the growth.
January 5, 2018 – (Palm Springs, CA) –HARDCAR Distribution announces that they have secured a Temporary Cannabis Distribution License (Type 11 – Medical) for the state of California. Because adult use and medical marijuana must pass through a distributor before reaching a retailer, this will allow the company to safely and securely transport more cash and product for its major clients throughout the state.
“We are thrilled to be one of the first licensed distributors in the state. This completes one stage of a very long journey for us to be the largest distributor in the state of California. I’m very proud of the California Bureau of Cannabis Control who worked through the holidays to make this happen. HARDCAR is a major advocate for the legal cannabis, cash and distribution movement in The Golden State.” – Todd Kleperis, CEO of HARDCAR Next Generation Security
California’s cannabis program, both adult use and medicinal, is entirely outlined in the emergency regulations that were officially released by the California Bureau of Cannabis Control on Nov. 29, 2017. It is estimated that there will be 20,000-plus dispensaries in California by the end of 2018, and recent studies from BDS Analytics/Arcview Market Research project sales of recreational marijuana to reach $577 million, while sales of legal medical marijuana could reach $2.7 billion.
