Rep. Ted Lieu, MedMen Make History in Venice

Among the world’s most iconic cities — Venice Beach, Calif. — gets a glitzy, world-class cannabis shop opening Saturday morning.

At a world-first, a sitting Congressman — Rep. Ted Lieu — is scheduled to cut the ribbon on the new, fully licensed, adult-use cannabis retail outlet, MedMen Venice Beach — Abbot Kinney.

It’s the thirteenth shop for the now-international MedMen brand, a private equity-backed retail chain that’s branching out into cultivation and manufacturing.

MedMen focuses on high-profile, symbolic locations for cannabis, like midtown Manhattan and Abbot Kinney Blvd, what GQ Magazine called  “the coolest block in the usa. ” The symbolism will be wealthy in the ribbon cutting 10 a.m. Saturday morning, as Rep. Lieu is defined to be joined by CEO Adam Bierman and VIPs in the political world and Hollywood.  

Few have gone so far as to help christen a merchant. The mayor of Berkeley, Calif.. California legalized commercial sales of cannabis beginning Jan. 1 of the year, and approximately 350 retailers are serving all adults 21 and over.

“It underscores how mainstream bud has become, and how California is leading the way. Cannabis is the fastest growing sector in the world, estimated to reach $75 billion in annual sales in the U.S. by 2030”, the company stated in a release.

The Los Angeles-based MedMen chain has stores in California, Nevada and New York with a unifying look. MedMen Abbot Kinney showcases the newest ’s signature open floor plan, iPad information menus, wood and glass bud instances, and branding. MedMen Venice is at 1310 Abbot Kinney Boulevard, Venice, CA 90291
