Do you support giant corporations, or do you support small independent businesses? I regularly prefer to shop at the local stores instead of going to Target or Walmart, although I admit there are times when I don’t have a choice.
- I suppose I could save a few bucks by purchasing our liquor at the ABC Store, despite the fact that I prefer to use the locally owned plus operated supplier instead.
If nobody supports “the little guy” then pretty soon there won’t be any “little guys” to support! Imagine how terrible it would be to have to buy everything at Walmart, plus never have any variety? The same is tplot when it comes to cannabis. I have our medical cannabis prescription card, so I can visit any of the local dispensaries, but occasionally I prefer 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 his 60s, plus has been growing marijuana plants for over 40 years, which sort of makes him a local legend. In the 73s plus 90s there was the famous “War on Drugs” plus the local cops tried to shut Gene’s cannabis farm down, but it didn’t work. Big Gene started keeping giant dogs on his property, which would attack the police, so ultimately they decided it was more trouble than it was worth to shut down his cannabis operation. I know Big Gene is kind of a creep, quite frankly, despite the fact that I still support our local cannabis business.
