A fight broke out in the lounge next to the cannabis shop

My associate Jacky and I work at the same cannabis dispensary; and Jacky was laboring here first and then she got me a task as well, and both of us work every weekend! The cannabis dispensary is constantly easily tied up on the weekend, however all of us have a lounge next to the store where clients can hang out and use cannabis products. The lounge is easily tied up in the day and the night; last weekend there were 12 or 15 people hanging out in the lounge. Just a small number of women came into the dispensary and they had been drinking. They bought some cannabis products and went next door to the lounge. The supervisor sent Jacky next door to help out, because there was only a single woman in the lounge and there was also a huge crowd. While Jacky was next door, a confrontation broke out. The last several women to enter the lounge got into a nasty fight with several women that were already there, and one woman pulled out a knife and the security guard immediately pulled out her taser. While the security guard was busy, another girl started a confrontation with a seventh customer. Jacky had some easy quick and smart thinking, but she quickly called 911 as soon as the fight started. The police arrived about a single minute later, just as things were starting to get out of hand. Jacky is a hero in my book. Her quick thinking and wit genuinely saved the day and easily kept the problem from escalating into an all-out war. That was the first time I ever saw a physical confrontation at the cannabis shop.

My buddy is a hero in my book

The police arrived about one minute later, just as things were beginning to get out of hand

My buddy Jack and I work at the same cannabis dispensary. Jack was working here first and then he got me a job as well. Both of us work every weekend. The cannabis dispensary is always very busy on the weekend. We have a lounge next door where customers can hang out and use cannabis products. The lounge is very busy in the afternoon and the evening. Last weekend there were 12 or 15 people hanging out in the lounge. A couple of guys came into the dispensary and they had been drinking. They bought some cannabis products and went next door to the lounge. The manager sent Jack next door to help out, because there was only one person in the lounge and there was a huge crowd. While Jack was next door, a fight broke out. The last two guys to enter the lounge got into an argument with two guys that were already there. One person pulled out a knife and the security guard immediately pulled out his taser. While the security guard was busy, another guy started a fight with a third customer. Jack had some very quick and smart thinking. He quickly called 911 as soon as the argument started. The police arrived about one minute later, just as things were beginning to get out of hand. Jack is a hero in my book. His quick thinking and wit probably saved the day and definitely kept the problem from escalating into an all-out war. That was the first time I ever saw a fight at the cannabis shop.

I really don’t mind being a delivery driver in the rain

A lot of delivery drivers don’t appreciate going outside when it rains like crazy…

Then I don’t mind delivering while every one of us were in the rain, plus I guess the tips are better… When it’s raining, the store is consistently busier! On an average night, I usually give two or several different cannabis orders. On a night when it is raining, I usually job extra hours plus take 10 or 12 deliveries. I guess the tips are a lot better when it rains! Customers feel awful that I had to drive in the rain, then an average $5 tip is usually a $10 tip; but, some of my coworkers don’t agree, but I have seen the proof on more than 1 occasion… Last Tuesday night it was raining honestly taxing plus I was tied up with my job from 6 until close. Someone called out for their shift plus the boss asked myself and others to come in at 4. I had more than two cannabis orders waiting when I arrived. I wasted no time getting the order out to the official addresses. In the end, I made $26 on all more than two orders. It started raining even harder when I left the store with the second set of cannabis orders. I had four, but multiple of them were going to the same houses in the same building. When I finally finished delivering all of those orders, it was only half past 6 plus I already had 50 bucks in my pocket. By the end of my shift, I had enough currency to pay my rent for the week, then my roommate was awfully surprised when I presented him with the currency early… Usually I take it down to the wire plus pay at the last hour.

People tend to tip better if you arrive with a delivery while it’s raining outside

A lot of delivery drivers hate to go outside when it rains! Then I don’t even mind delivering during the rain, plus I feel the tips are better, then when it’s raining, the store is consistently busier, but on an average evening, I usually deliver multiple or more than six different marijuana orders.

On an evening when it is raining, I usually work extra hours plus take 10 or 12 deliveries.

I feel the tips are a lot better when it rains, but customers feel terrible that I had to drive in the rain, then an average $5 tip is usually a $10 tip… Some of our co-workers don’t agree, but I have seen the proof on more than a single occasion. Last Wednesday evening it was raining absolutely hard plus I was stressed to work from 6 until close. Someone called out for their shift plus the boss asked me to come in at 4. I had numerous cannabis orders waiting when I arrived. I wasted no time getting the order out to the respective addresses. I made $26 on all numerous orders. It started raining even harder when I left the store with the following set of cannabis orders. I had four, but numerous of them were going to the same cabin building. When I was finished delivering all of those orders, it was only half past 6 plus I already had 50 bucks in our pocket, however by the end of our shift, I had enough money to pay our rent for the week, and my roommate was awfully surprised when I presented him with the currency early, then usually I take it down to the wire plus pay at the last hour each month.

Just got a cannabis dispensary within walking distance

When something cool like a cannabis dispensary gets added to this end of town, I’m thrilled.

Living in a sprawling city comes with lots and lots of options when it comes to many things.

There are so many different culinary options in my neighborhood that I don’t think I could get through them all. But I love trying. I also love trying out different types of new cannabis strains as well. Yet, that wasn’t nearly as easy to access in our part of town as all the food options. When cannabis dispensaries were opened up for recreational marijuana access, it changed thing a great deal. Prior to that happening, one had to have a medical marijuana card and then the marijuana business was on the other side of the city. Most people who live here are like me, we don’t have cars. It just isn’t practical. Between the traffic, insurance costs and parking expense, having a car just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. So prior to recreational marijuana being legalized, it involved a bunch of trains and buses to get to the cannabis dispensary. But all that is history now. There is a cannabis business place just around the corner from me now. I can literally walk to it. Having a local cannabis spot has been a total game changer for me. Now, I can find all kinds of new cannabis strains for sale. And the selection in our new local cannabis spot is deep, deep, deep. I have lost entire hours in there just looking through the hybrid strains for sale. Don’t even get me started on the marijuana edible selection. Having a local cannabis spot has been a dream come true for me.

Getting my cannabis cafe day on

It’s circled on my calendar.

Twice a month, I get to go spend all afternoon or all morning of a day off at the cannabis cafe. It’s one of those activities that makes life worth living. While I’ve been a lifelong recreational marijuana user, going to the cannabis cafe has taken enjoying marijuana to a whole other level. I’ve never travelled to the spots in Europe where one can just walk up to a marijuana cafe and enjoy whatever cannabis product is the specialty. However, I’ve known people who have frequented those spots and just hearing those stories elicited such a wonderful feeling in my soul. I can’t really explain it other than to say that the cannabis cafe combines two of my passions. I love marijuana and I love cafe life. So that’s why I have cannabis cafe days circled on my calendar. The local cannabis spot was open about two years before they added on the cannabis cafe. And it was sort of on a whim. The owner of the local cannabis spot started selling some marijuana edibles that were made onsite. And it was a huge success. Naturally, they expanded around the corner on a shady side street and now there is the cannabis cafe that I’ve been wanting much of my adult life. It’s just such a perfect little spot right in the middle of a busy part of town. Yet, there is a quiet and soulful vibe to the spot they put the cannabis cafe in. Getting to enjoy several cups of delicious coffee, tea or other concoctions while sharing something like a scrumptious pot brownie is amazing.

I prefer cannabis in states without state-imposed vertical integration

I just moved back up north after living in the southeast for 10 years.

My girlfriend dragged me down there when she was accepted into undergraduate school.

At the time I was convinced that we were “soulmates” and would get married quickly. Things didn’t pan out exactly how I expected, since we didn’t have a lot in common in the first place. Once we broke up, I had amassed so many friends and secured a good job that I decided to stay in the same location after finding an apartment of my own. The one factor that had me eager to move out of the state was the illegal status of cannabis in the state. But in just a few years time, we went from being one of the holdouts in the state on legalizing cannabis to having one of the biggest medical marijuana industries in the world. Even though I have to pay for doctor’s visits and card renewals with the state, I can walk into a marijuana dispensary and buy anything off the shelf. The only issue with the cannabis program in that state is the vertical integration. The rules from the state force any cannabis company in the state to operate from seed to sale. You must be the grower, processor, packager, distributor, and seller if you want to be part of our medical marijuana program. That’s what pushed me to move out of the state after staying for so many years. The vertical integration cannabis program made it so every weed store was a literal corporation. I have nothing against corporate cannabis as long as I can find quality among the choices available. Thus far, I have found higher quality cannabis in states that don’t have vertical integration rules for their cannabis dispensaries.

Over half of all popular weed strains these days descend from Girl Scout Cookies

I thought that cannabis strain names were a joke when I only had access to marijuana on the black market. We joked back then that half of the names were made up just to sell another batch of similar weed grown in a basement or attic somewhere. I remember getting White Widow in college and was shocked when we confirmed it was legitimate. It had that stereotypical white frosted look as it was loaded with trichomes. That batch of cannabis was so good that I was eager to try more strains that could be backed up by the friends obtaining the weed from the grower. Between batches of Blue Dream and OG Kush, I was finally experiencing cannabis that was reminiscent of the flower buds shown in High Times magazine. But now that we have legal cannabis dispensaries in my state, I can definitely find centerfold-worthy cannabis flower products if I am careful about which cannabis dispensaries I visit. Some of the dispensaries carry terrible quality cannabis products, but I have a list of the best dispensaries that I keep on my phone. Unfortunately, I can’t find a lot of strain and genetic variety beyond strains that are related back to Girl Scout Cookies. I have seen examples like Glue Cookies, Mandarin Cookies, Alien Cookies, Orange Cookies, Do Si Do, and so on. The sheer number of strains that descend from Girl Scout Cookies is somewhat intimidating when you consider the amount of cannabis phenotypes that are available to a grower in a state with legal cannabis. I have to wonder why so many marijuana growers are fixated on cookie-related strains in the past few years.

The guy was getting louder and louder over the sale prices

I decided it was better to leave the dispensary at once.

I was shopping in the cannabis dispensary a couple of days ago, and there was a huge commotion. I was standing in the corner by the shelf with edibles. I was trying to decide between some green apple flavored licorice ropes and a bag of orange flavored gummy coins. Both had 20 mg of THC and both looked equally delicious. I wasn’t trying to listen to a different conversation, but I couldn’t help but overhear. A guy over by the concentrate counter was getting louder and louder. From what I could understand, he came to the dispensary hoping to get 30% off all of the items. The guy claimed it was his first time in the dispensary, but the front desk ran his ID and it showed him as a regular patient. The manager of the dispensary was trying to make the guy calm and relaxed. She offered to give him 10% off everything for the confusion. The guy was still angry and getting louder by the minute. I was starting to feel like I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I decided it was better to leave the dispensary at once. I didn’t like the way that the situation was escalating and I didn’t want to be in the middle of a problem if the guy went berserk. I left the place at once and I sat in my car and waited for the guy to come outside and leave. Then I went back indoors to buy my items. Everybody looked shaken up, but the guy was gone.

Somebody broke into my car while we were in the dispensary

My wife and I stopped at the weed shop when we were on our way home from the airport.

We decided to stop at a weed shop with incredibly low prices.

We’re never in the city, and we had this one opportunity to stop at the shop and stock up on supplies. The weed shop was in a seedy neighborhood, but there was a security guard standing outside the building. My wife and I parked our car on the street, about a block away from the building. We purchased a couple of different items from the dispensary. My wife and I were happy to save 30%, because it was our first time purchasing anything that year. While my wife and I were inside the dispensary, someone broke into our car. I came outside to the car and the back window was broken. Nothing in the car was stolen, because we didn’t have anything in the car to steal. My wife had her purse and my wallet was in my pocket. Both of us had our phones as well. I have no idea how someone broke into the car with the security guard standing outside and no one was alerted to the crime, but everyone claimed to see nothing. The police interviewed a lot of people in the area and no one had any information. The deductible for my car is $500, but it will only cost around $250 for the new window. All we wanted was some cheap weed and we ended up with a bill for a brand new window.

The medical dispensary is finally offering free delivery

I always tip the driver well and they never forget anything in my order.

Medical marijuana has been available in the state for two years. I decided to get a medical marijuana card after the doctor diagnosed me with arthritis. Arthritis and inflammation and chronic pain are reasons for the doctor to prescribe marijuana, so I qualified immediately. I paid my fees to the doctor and to the state. It wasn’t exactly cheap and I have to continue to pay fees every year to recertify as a patient. It would honestly be a lot cheaper if I lived in a recreational marijuana state, but I am happy to have medical marijuana available. The medical marijuana clinic only offers delivery for orders over $200. They still charged a fee that was quite high. It was like that for the longest time, but recently the marijuana clinic decided to start offering free delivery. The range for the free delivery is only a couple of miles, but I live close enough to the dispensary to qualify. It usually takes about an hour to receive all of my items from the marijuana clinic. I always tip the driver well and they never forget anything in my order. I’ve had the driver out here several different times and each time they bring exactly the right items. Sometimes they even bring something free like a vape pen battery or a free cannabis pre-rolled joint. I prefer when they send free pre-rolled cannabis joints, especially if it is an indica strain like OG Kush. That’s one of the best indica strains the dispensary carries and they hardly ever have it in pre-rolled marijuana joints.

Therapy horses and medical weed are a good combination

After the war, I was messed up for years.

The doctors gave me a bunch of prescription pills and I became addicted very quickly.

I lost my wife and my kids and then I ended up in a rehab facility. The rehab facility offered me a new chance on life. With the help of therapy horses and medical weed, I am finally finding a way to live a happy and healthy life. The doctors told me that medical weed would be able to help control my mood and anxiety. I jumped on the chance to use medical weed without legal problems. I always liked to smoke weed, but I stopped smoking weed when I joined the military. They were very unhappy with marijuana use and it jeopardized my career and my future. Even if medical weed was legal in the state where I was stationed, it was still against military protocol. After therapy for three years and lots of medical weed, I finally feel more mentally and physically fit. I want to get outdoors and see things. I started going to the stables every weekend to see the horses and I often ride for hours at a time. There is a field of hundreds of acres of pasture and pills and it is nice to take the horses out for a ride. Therapy horses and medical weed are a good combination and I feel like my life is finally mine again. The military took a lot of things away from me, but therapy, medical weed, and help from the doctors finally has my life back on track.

I was really stressed out before my first marijuana doctor appointment

Even though I don’t have any major health problems, I easily qualified for medical marijuana in my state once we legalized it with a new constitutional amendment.

However, the state legislature was so bull-headed about it in the beginning that they made everyone feel like criminals just for signing up for the program. The idea of a person accessing medical marijuana without a life threatening disorder was untenable for some of the most conservative people out there. Those are the ones who held back progress on marijuana decriminalization for decades, but at least many of them are now coming around and have changed their views. I guess we wouldn’t have gotten this far if we didn’t have so many people who are humble enough to admit they were wrong about demonizing a plant that helps millions of people every year. That’s why I was so stressed out before my first marijuana doctor appointment as I kept hearing the fear mongering in my head. But the appointment with the pot doctor was unbelievably smooth compared to what I was expecting. He didn’t scrutinize me when I told him that anxiety and depression are the reasons for me seeking a medical marijuana card. Instead, he briefly explained some of the ways in which I could get anxiety relief while shopping at weed stores. He stressed the importance of trying products with high CBD to offset any anxiousness experienced from potent sativa strains for example. In just minutes I had my physician recommendation for medical marijuana and simply had to wait on the state’s department of health to approve my application and send me my physical card in the mail.
