Marijuana Dispensaries And Their Absurd Storage Requirements

I do quite a few marijuana dispensaries in states where medical marijuana is legal and heavily regulated, including the security of those buildings. In my experience, these regulations are being written by people who don't have a clue as to what is going on. Check out this requirement one of my clients has,

(4) Ability to record all images captured by each surveillance camera for a minimum of 4 years in a format that may easily be accessed for investigative purposes.

I calculated 30 cameras would require at least 768TB to meet this requirement. My calculation is based on normal use in other marijuana dispensaries I have done.

In the past when I have approached these regulatory agencies and requested they make realistic changes to their regulations I have been met with typical government bureaucracy. I am hoping I can get somewhere with this one.

Has anyone else seen a requirement like this? What did you do?
