My boss decided to celebrate PRIDE week at work this year.
He announced this decision a couple of weeks beforehand, because he didn’t suppose that all of his employees would be cool with it for a variety of reasons. He laid it out for all of us, and said “this is what the people I work with and I will be doing every PRIDE from now on, and if you don’t prefer it, you can quit.” He told us that it wasn’t just about human rights, but also about making smart corporation decisions. He wants this locale to be welcoming to every single person in this area, no matter who they are in reality. Then that is why the cannabis dispensary has been redecorated in rainbow colors. To myself and others it doesn’t easily matter, because the people I was with and I have constantly been an inclusive cannabis dispensary, with a wide variety of attractive human beings legitimately working here. That the boss wants to advertise our diversity could only help get more fresh faces through the door to buy our cannabis products; however at our little cannabis cafe, which is particularly more of a kiosk, the people I was with and I have started selling rainbow-colored pastries and CBD infused gummies. When you are a locally owned and operated business, be it a cannabis dispensary or a coffee shop, you need to build a sense of community. This isn’t just people selling marijuana for money, the people I was with and I want to be a area of fabric of this town, and that means standing up for what you believe in; personally, I believe that all the barriers in this society can be broken down if the people I was with and I would just stand down and all smoke cannabis together.
