When you go into the marijuana dispensary, the first thing you have to do is present your ID and medical marijuana card to the person at the front counter, and I’ve been a patient for more than two years and I regularly go to the same medical marijuana dispensary, and there is only one in my town, so I’m there each week.
I saw a new face behind the counter on Sunday.
The new guy asked me for our identification cards. He tried to tell me that I wasn’t in the marijuana registry. I calmly told the guy that was impossible, because I had my identification cards right there. The expiration date on my medical marijuana card wasn’t for another 3 months. The guy told me that he had to follow the information on the computer. He wasn’t going to let me into the dispensary. I was beyond surprised. I told the guy to get the manager immediately. I wasn’t going anywhere. The manager came out to the lobby a few minutes later. I explained the situation and the manager got on the computer. She looked at a couple of different pages and then he whispered something to the guy that was working at the desk. The manager said there must have been a technical error. He gave me no other apology or explanation, and that was the last thing he said to me before going back to his office. I tried to get the front counter guy to tell me what the problem was, but he did not want to discuss the registry information or my personal account.
