I live in a small town.
The town has a mix of people who have mixed views.
We have some young people who are more open minded and some older people who are more conservative. I recently found out that a cannabis dispensary near me is having their grand opening this weekend. I found out through a flier in my mailbox from the cannabis dispensary near me. When I was checking my mail in my driveway, my next door neighbor Charlie started talking to me about the cannabis dispensary. Charlie is an older gentleman who is very conservative. He is a nice man, but he is definitely stuck in his ways. Charlie has a hard time understanding young people and he often calls my generation overly sensitive. When Charlie saw the advertisement for the cannabis dispensary, he immediately started to complain about it. I personally do not use cannabis products, but it does not bother me that a cannabis dispensary is opening. I feel that if someone chooses to purchase cannabis legally from a store, then that is their right and it is none of my business. Charlie has opposite views on the cannabis store. Charlie was complaining to me about the cannabis store opening near us and I just listened because I did not feel like getting into an argument today. Charlie said that he feels that a cannabis store will attract the wrong crowd. Charlie said that people who smoke weed are lazy, and dumb. Charlie complained that our small, quiet town will turn into a bunch of weed smoking drug addicts because of the cannabis store opening.
