Do you support sizable corporations, or do you support small independent businesses? I always love to shop at the local stores instead of going to Target or Walmart, even though I divulge there are times when I don’t have a choice.
I suppose I could save a few bucks by purchasing my liquor at the ABC Store, even though I enjoy to use the locally owned & operated business instead.
If nobody supports “the little guy” then pretty soon there won’t be any “little guys” to support! Imagine how awful it would be to have to buy everything at Walmart, & never have any variety? The same is tploy when it comes to cannabis. I have my medical cannabis prescription card, so I can visit any of the local dispensaries, but occasionally I enjoy to support the local business. I doubt the police guess 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, & has been growing marijuana plants for over 40 years, which sort of makes him a local legend. In the 80s & 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 sizable 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 guess Big Gene is kind of a creep, quite frankly, even though I still support my local cannabis business.
