Hello there! I dug up an article online that I think speaks to your question: http://www.drugtopics.com/drug-topics/news/medical-marijuana-new-business-model-pharmacists The basic thrust of the article is about pharmacists being involved with the setup of new dispensaries. However, questions concerning how do engineer a startup, devising a basic business model, obtaining capital etc. can better be answered by someone like my wife who is in corporate finance rather than a humble med cann. recc. MD like me! In any case, best of luck and please let us know about how things work out for you.
