I put in an order to the local cannabis dispensary and pressed the button for cannabis delivery service.
Five minutes later, I got an email telling me my order did not go through, and I should call the local cannabis dispensary for help.
When I called the cannabis dispensary, they asked if I had an account with them. I had just turned 21 and it was the first time I had ordered marijuana. I knew recreational marijuana was legal, and I was going to celebrate my birthday with friends. The manager of the cannabis dispensary told me I had to come into the dispensary and show them a physical ID card. The first order would need to be made in person, and then I could have cannabis delivery. I thought this was whacked, and I said thank you to them. Before he hung up, he informed me this was the rule for every cannabis dispensary. They were all mandated by the law to see an ID in person and put it into their system. I was truly bummed now, because I didn’t want to go back out. I passed the cannabis dispensary on my way to work, and I could have put the first order in with no problem, but I didn’t think about it. Now, I had to go back into town, go into the cannabis dispensary, and put in an order. At least next time, I’ll know I can put in an online order, and sign up for cannabis delivery. It wasn’t how I wanted my first recreational marijuana purchase to go, but I didn’t write the rules.
