At the ripe old age of 45 I quit my cushy office job and started working as a delivery driver.
I know some people are going to roll their eyes at this decision, because I know a lot of my friends did.
But here is my response — my time and happiness has value. Working a job that you loathe takes a toll on your mind and your spirit, and that has value, as well. Taking a bit of a pay cut and getting a job that I actually enjoyed was the right choice, and I would do it again. Being a cannabis delivery driver might not have a lot of prestige to it, but I love my job! You don’t have to be a regular user of cannabis to like this job, in fact it will get you fired quicker than anything! My boss at the cannabis dispensary has a very strict policy for all the drivers — smoke all the pot you want, as long as you are never high behind the wheel. Being high on cannabis while at work is grounds for immediate dismissal, and I have seen several of my coworkers get fired for their first infraction. I myself enjoy smoking out once in a while, but to be honest I love my gig as a cannabis delivery driver too much to screw it up for a bit of fun. The pay is okay, but the biggest benefit is the tips I get from my cannabis delivery customers, who usually give me extra cash, plus some weed as well!
