I yearn for the old afternoons, when medical cannabis was difficult to acquire.
I was the store manager for a state-owned dispensary, & I was as bored & lonely as the old Maytag Repair Man from the television commercials. There were some afternoons that I had zero shoppers during an eight hour shift! I did a lot of studying back then, & even took a couple of supplier classes online so I could put in for a promotion. Two years ago the voters of this state decided to change the laws. Now the rules for medical & recreational cannabis use are unquestionably relaxed, & my boring afternoons in the dispensary are a thing of the past. I can no longer put my feet up & study a book, because there is always a long line of people waiting to come into the cannabis dispensary. I feel more like a bartender than a budtender, because the cannabis consultations seem to never stop. Things would be different if my pay went up. I got paid the same amount to do nothing as I do now, when I am legit slammed tied up all afternoon long at the cannabis dispensary. I am not an owner, I am an employee who is on salary, which means I don’t get a percentage of the profits from the cannabis dispensary. I either need to renegotiate my contract with the state, or start putting in resumes at other cannabis dispensaries in the area. If I’m going to have to work this difficult I need a lot more money.
