Noah Stokes is the founder and CEO of CannaGuard Security, a cannabis industry security firm that serves cannabis businesses nationwide. From storefronts to grow ops, CannaGuard helps companies not only meet the standards put in place by state regulators, but also to be prepared for these standards to change, and to make sure that there are contingencies and preventative measures in place as safeguards against theft and robberies.
Noah recently joined Shango Los to discuss some of the most common requests his company receives, as well as what types of businesses he works for, the many flaws in the logic used by regulators when defining mandated security protocols, and how cannabis retailers and producers can best prepare for worst case scenarios.

…we’re in process with over 400 licensees in Washington and Oregon that are just waiting to build it out, to get their license applied for. We’ve been in communication with inspectors and the regulators and we’ve been helping the OLCC here in Oregon to actually draft these rules and regulations and do them intelligently so that someone can know, “If I do exactly this I will be compliant.”
