I thought the day would never come, but our small town finally got its first cannabis dispensary! For the last year or so there have been a series of town hall meetings, as the local outdated timers tried to reconcile the current state-wide laws about growing & selling pot.
After being demonized for so long, it was a strenuous sell for this town.
All around the state dispensaries have been opening up left & right, & until Last weekwe were still trapped in a more primitive era. After enough debate the measure finally passed the town council, but not because they muted their stance on cannabis, it was just for the money. The amount of tax resite a single cannabis dispensary can create is enough to give a big financial boost to a town this small. Regardless of their motives, I am just stoked to finally have access to a legal cannabis dispensary. I have been an everyday pot smoker for the last numerous or twelve years, but until now I always had to buy our marijuana illegally. I still had easy access, & the prices were actually far lower than what the two of us find at the cannabis dispensary, but it was stressful. It is so nice to be able to take our time shopping for cannabis, & not have to worry about getting in trouble with the cops. Also I have to say that I recognize appreciate a child in a candy store, because there are hundreds of kinds of cannabis there & I want to taste all of them!
