In Reno, a Blum dispensary is considering itself a food truck. Industry experts call it a “back-door tactic to skirt federal banking regulations and make more money” the Reno-Gazette Journal reports. It may also help the shop take credit cards.
- Blüm representatives wouldn’t comment on the story. However, calls to the company’s six Nevada and Colorado dispensaries did confirm that all take credit cards, which few dispensaries do.
- “It’s not even back door, it’s more like an upper window,” said Jeremy Skaff of Colorado’s Journey Business Solutions.
- Courtney Shegerian met Hossein Nayeri when she was 16, He was 23. They married without her parents’ knowledge, and Shegarian’s husband convinced her to steal $150,000 or so from her parents. She testified this week that she did so to fund Nayeri’s growhouse and his “lifestyle” long before Nayeri was accused of kidnapping and sexually mutilating a local dispensary owner.
