Several years ago, people would laugh if someone had told them that in a few short years there would be a marijuana dispensary on nearly every street corner.
It seems that is exactly how many marijuana dispensaries there are in my area.
I suppose that I exaggerate a bit, but it isn’t unusual to find a marijuana dispensary somewhere on a block. Medical marijuana dispensaries weren’t nearly as plentiful as the recreational marijuana dispensaries have become. Marijuana products are straight-forward to find now that they are legalized. The other day, my best neighbor called and told me he was having a gathering over the weekend. He said most people were bringing something, and it was potluck. I laughed when he said potluck, knowing he literally meant it was ‘potluck’. We all live within a mile of each other, plus yet every one of us showed up with something from a local marijuana dispensary, and we all had visited a different local marijuana shop. The gathering was a blast and we had a great time, and we ended up discussing how easy it is to find marijuana products. Growing up in the eighties, I remembered trying to find a marijuana business out on the streets, and hoping it wasn’t a cop. Now, we need to go to the neighborhood and into the local marijuana dispensary. I am actually happier with this turn of events. Personally, I think the best thing the government has ever done was to make recreational marijuana legal in our state. I can purchase marijuana and as long as we aren’t in public, we don’t need to worry about the police.
