    MedMen West Hollywood is BACK Under New Management

    MedMen West Hollywood cannabis dispensary has reopened under new management, at 8208 Santa Monica Blvd. According to a source, One Plant, a California weed dispensary and delivery service, has purchased three MedMen locations, San Diego, LAX and West Hollywood. The West Hollywood location reopened on Friday, March 22, 2024, after its abrupt closure last month. It has been at that location in WeHo for roughly six years.

    MedMen West Hollywood looks fully stocked. Balloons at the main entrance announce its reopening and the Dogs of West Hollywood collage displaying Polaroid photos dogs that have come through its doors remains untouched. The website is currently being powered by Dutchie, an all-in-one technology platform powering the cannabis industry with Point of Sale, Ecommerce, Payments, and Insurance.

    Market Watch noted that the stock received a cease-trade order last month, plunging from a $3 billion valuation in 2018 to zero. Several MedMen cannabis dispensaries shuttered this month. MedMen ceased operations at all outlets except those in San Diego and near Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and the reopening of the West Hollywood location. Closed locations include Santa Ana, Long Beach, and San Francisco, as well as stores in Illinois and Nevada. The reopening of in WeHo was unexpected.

    According to a source at the WeHo location, the previous owners at MedMen were hard to work for, they never paid their venders and drove the dispensary to the ground. “Thankfully now, the new owners, they pay their bills,” he said. “They’re great. They’re awesome so far.”

    The new owners are also seeking the former employees to offer their jobs back at the WeHo location after they were let go last month. Some of them may already have new jobs, or have moved on, so MedMen WeHo is hiring.

    Founded in 2010 by Adam Bierman and Andrew Modlin, MedMen aimed to reshape society’s perception of cannabis. Its West Hollywood store was among California’s first post-legalization, followed by expansions in New York, Nevada, and Florida. The company’s plans for greenhouse facilities in Nevada and California made headlines, but challenges arose in 2019, including lawsuits and financial scrutiny.

    Hopefully the new owners don’t fleece the company again.

    All cannabis stores only take cash as cannabis sales are not federally legal.
