For a few weeks our store has been experiencing some problems with a certain group of customers.
This is uncharted territory for all of us who work here.
In general, a cannabis dispensary is a very chill place to work, for the employees and the customers alike. We deal mostly with potheads, who are a very relaxed group of people. Then we started having these college kids coming into the store, drunk out of their minds, and they would cause a scene. We had a security guard, but he quit because these young people were giving him too much grief. My manager made a bold move, and hired an ex-con named Stan to be the new cannabis dispensary security guard. Stan made an immediate difference, and suddenly the cannabis dispensary is a fun place to work again. Stan works the front door, like the bouncer at a club, and checks the IDs and cannabis cards for everyone who wants to come inside. He is so intimidating to look at that nobody wants to mess around and get on his bad side, so all those problem customers found another cannabis dispensary to bother. While he may look scary, Stan is as sweet as honey pie, and has become the most popular guy at the cannabis dispensary. Since Stan is still on parole, he cannot actually indulge in marijuana himself, but he doesn’t seem to mind. Once I asked Stan what he went to jail for, and with a sheepish grin he admitted it was for robbing a cannabis dealer. I hope the bosses don’t find out!
