Member Blog: The Cannabis Industry Requires New Security Thinking


by Tom Dillon, S2 Security Corporation

The legal medical and adult-use cannabis market has grown to an estimated size of 7.1 billion dollars. With this growth comes an array of new opportunities and challenges for cultivation centers and dispensaries. These entities are looking for solutions to ensure they meet regulatory requirements, secure their facilities and produce products of the highest quality.

Some of the security and operational concerns for cultivation centers may include:

  • Compliance with state-mandated requirements for facility and security system design
  • Tightly controlled access
  • Secured storage vaults
  • Complete security camera coverage, with the exception of bathrooms and locker rooms
  • Ability for state officials to log in to the security system remotely
  • Monitoring of the environment in cultivation rooms

Revolution Cannabis, a cultivation center located in central Illinois, addressed these challenges with a new access control system. The company not only met state regulatory requirements but also prevented any incidents from occurring.
