Dearest,
Apparently, a lot of MMJ dispensaries, across state lines, use a sales and management software that only resides in the cloud. Even the shop's tills are just dumb terminals (or ipads) for this software. For a number of days, dispensaries were without access to the largest supplier, because they'd been taken offline in a hack attack. No one can call in the FBI for expertise because it's federally illegal to deal with cannabis.
