-A message from Mike Mullins of Stoney Only Dispensary…

As the owner of Stoney Only Dispensary I count on my employees for compliance.

Where can you find qualified help?  Do you know there now are lots of new regulations? When the state investigators show up are you ready?

We must create a skilled workforce.
  • Part of the required compliance are your employee training programs. Under inspection, my employee training keeps me safe.
  • We require our employees to attend Portlandsterdam Workshops for monthly training.
  • We don’t have time to shut down and turn our facility into a class room. We need thorough training to keep us safe.
  • Why: I’m responsible for any actions known or not!
  • It’s Required, Easy, Meets Training Requirements,
  • Aids in Clear and Concise Internal Operations.
  • Provides Assurance of Compliance, and Ensures Success.
  • When the State Investigator show up at your front door,                                                         it’s always a shock no matter how ready you are.
