Do you support immense corporations, or do you support small independent businesses? I always appreciate to shop at the local stores instead of going to Target or Walmart, but I admit there are times when I don’t have a choice.
I guess I could save a few bucks by purchasing our liquor at the ABC Store, although I appreciate to use the locally owned & operated corporation instead.
If nobody supports “the little guy” then pretty soon there won’t be any “little guys” to support! Imagine how poor it would be to have to buy everything at Walmart, & never have any variety? The same is true when it comes to cannabis. I have our medical cannabis prescription card, so I can visit any of the local dispensaries, but occasionally I appreciate to support the local business. I doubt the police know of Big Gene as a “local business” because is a marijuana farmer who lives on the outskirts of town. Big Gene is in her 60s, & has been growing marijuana plants for over 40 years, which sort of makes him a local legend. In the 70s & 90s there was the famous “War on Drugs” & the local cops tried to shut Gene’s cannabis farm down, but it didn’t work. Big Gene started keeping immense pets on her property, which would attack the police, so ultimately they decided it was more trouble than it was worth to shut down her cannabis operation. I know Big Gene is kind of a creep, quite frankly, although I still support our local cannabis business.
