My mother has issues with anxiety, depression and chronic back pain and she doesn’t like taking a handful of pills every day. Lately, she has shown some interest in the medicinal benefits of marijuana. Mom could have gotten a medical marijuana card years ago, but now that recreational marijuana is legal here, there are a lot more options open for her. Mom did a little research and she wants me to take her to visit this popular marijuana dispensary the next town over. I don’t think that is a good idea, at least not yet anyway. From what I understand, that dispensary has a huge assortment of marijuana products and I think my mother might become overwhelmed. She has always been a bit sheltered. Another reason that I don’t think visiting the big marijuana dispensary one town over is because my mother is a bit impulsive, and she likes giving unique gifts to people. In fact, she loves giving unique gifts, like those you would find in a recreational marijuana dispensary. I’m afraid that if I take my mother to the big marijuana dispensary, she will overspend. So, I decided to first take her to the small marijuana dispensary that I frequent. They have all the marijuana products that Mom might need, without the overwhelming lights, sounds, and displays. The budtenders are knowledgeable and very helpful without heavy sales pressure. Eventually I will probably take mother to the big marijuana dispensary one town over like she wants me to, but I will at least try to put it off until after Christmas.
