They’re Fired Up In Philly

Quaker City Mercantile is doing work for Silverpeak Apothecary, a medical marijuana dispensary in Aspen.
Considering that marijuana is now legal for medical use in 14 different states and generates $1 billion nationwide in revenue a year, execs at QCM had no problem seeing Silverpeak as legitimate clients. Plus, after working with RJ Reynolds for 17 years, they know a thing or two about brand building in the combustibles category.
While other agencies have turned their backs on the immense opportunities in the medical marijuana industry, for fear of pissing off other corporate clients, QCM welcomes them to their client roster with open arms.
