Man, is it ever nice to have a cannabis dispensary so close to my house.
When recreational marijuana first became legal, the only dispensary was a heck of a long way away.
And when you live in a city where having a car is a very big burden, local is the best way to go. When I first came to the city, I had a car. Having grown up in a rural part of the country, everyone relied on cars. If you didn’t have your own transportation, you probably couldn’t even get a job. But I found out fast that cars aren’t even necessary in the city. The added insurance expense along with having to figure out parking was just too big a hassle. Mainly because I just rarely ever drove. I did everything local. So when the first cannabis dispensary opened on the other side of the city. There were a lot of trains and busses involved in just getting to the marijuana for sale. It ate up most of a day off. The nice thing was that they had a really cool cannabis cafe there. So once I did my shopping, I could hang out at the cannabis cafe a bit before traveling back to my side of the city. When the word got out that there was going to be a marijuana business just down a few blocks from our community, the crowd went wild. I mean my friends and I were so excited that we could shop for our cannabis products by simply walking to the cannabis dispensary whenever it was convenient for us.
