I owned a small hardware store in our town.
There was a mostly vacant storefront across the street from where I had my store. Over the past five years, I had seen several different stores come and go. Recently I had noticed there was a sign on the storefront. When I got closer, I noticed it was a ‘coming soon’ notice.. It had the name of the store on the sign, which I had to read several times. I wasn’t sure I was reading what I thought I saw. I wrote down the name of the store and I looked it up online when I got home. The store was part of a franchise that was around the state. It was a cannabis cafe. I knew we had cannabis dispensaries in our area, but I had never heard of a cannabis cafe. I read all the information they had on this franchise. The cannabis cafe specialized in breakfast and lunch. They had a great sounding menu, and I was surprised to find out that all their food was infused with cannabis. Although I wouldn’t eat the food when I was at work, I knew I would purchase something and take it home. I was anxious for the cannabis cafe to open so I could try their cuisine. They only had hours from 5AM to 4PM, since all they sold was breakfast and lunch. I guess the thought was that if they got their daily supply of marijuana in the food they ate, they wouldn’t need to come back to the cafe after lunch.
