This marriage will continue to prove that The MedMen as a major force not only in the business of pot, but in big business as a whole."

Founded by entrepreneurs Bierman and Modlin, The MedMen has helped over 100 prospective marijuana business ventures through the tedious and extensive application processes for marijuana licenses and in assisting in optimizing long-term success through every aspect of operations.In early June, The MedMen found approval of all four of its cultivation and production applicants and obtained one of the 18 Special Use Permits to open a dispensary in Nevada's Unincorporated Clark County, the most competitive application process in U.S. history thus far. Currently, The MedMen is working with clients in Illinois as they prepare for applications and finalized guidelines to be announced later this year, and in Florida as its population and prospective medical marijuana operators prepare for a vote in November that will likely begin the process of legalizing medical marijuana in the state.
