Ever since that show Stranger Things came out I have seen a big boost in the number of people playing Dungeons & Dragons.
I never got into the game myself, but always knew people who played it.
Since that show came out, more folks have been playing the game. Even though I don’t fully understand why everyone likes it so much, I decided to embrace the game, and use it to get some new customers into my cannabis dispensary. There is a small smokers lounge next door to the cannabis shop, so I decided to host a “role playing game night” and was surprised at the results! Role playing games require focus and imagination, so it shouldn’t have come as a shock that the games consumed incredible amounts of cannabis. Now that they had a place to relax and enjoy cannabis while playing their games, my store traffic went through the roof. Many of these people will be in the store for four, five, even six hours at a time, and although not all of them use cannabis, enough of them do to cause an impact on my bottom line. In other words, these role playing nerds are a huge boost of revenue for my little cannabis dispensary, and that means I want to keep their business. I provide free pizzas for the whole room every once in a while, because all that cannabis leads to munchies, and I don’t want them to leave the store looking for food. I now host role playing nights in the dispensary several times a week.
