“As medical marijuana laws become less vague, more strict, and more sustainable alongside unprecedented growth in public and political support for legalization, more and more business owners are realizing the potential for--and are having--successful, long-standing, fulfilling careers in the cannabis industry. The opportunity to design your business and your branding like every other legitimate business on the block is something these businesses want, and we understand that,” said Megan Stone, Owner of The High Road Design Studio and former General Manager of a top Orange County dispensary.
“Marijuana dispensaries have not exactly been synonymous with great design. From my experience, this stereotype contributes to the NIMBY (Not In My Backyard) mentality, which is a huge hurdle when it comes time to set city ordinances, set up zoning in new markets, and make medicine safe and accessible to the patients who need it most,” explains Stone. “I want to see our industry grow and prosper and legitimize, and I have seen interior design help dispensaries be good neighbors and welcomed members of the community. The more access this industry has to interior design, among other things, the more successful and sustainable it will be.”
The High Road Design Studio specializes in interior design and merchandising consulting for businesses in the cannabis industry, primarily dispensaries. They focus on making functional, efficient, safe spaces that also leave a strong visual impression and communicate the business’s brand message.
The High Road also offers residential design services and consulting. For an hourly rate, Stone develops space plans, illustrations, and product specifications for design concepts tailored to each client’s tastes and needs.
In addition to her degree in Interior Design, Stone also holds a degree in Marketing, and is an Allied Member of ASID.
