I know it’s been a few years now. But I still can hardly believe it each time I open the door to the local cannabis spot near me. Each time I do this, I’m reminded that I’m actually going inside a cannabis dispensary where I get to shop for cannabis products. I actually get to spend as much time as I like going through the various sativa products and indica products. It’s like a fever dream come true. For a person in their 50’s whose used recreational marijuana their whole adult life, this is a slice of heaven on a plate. The very idea that I’d ever be able to enjoy a shopping experience in a marijuana business was just the furthest from my mind. But I was one of the lucky ones. I actually new a marijuana grower for years so I didn’t have to deal with the unseemly side of getting the marijuana I wanted. Still, possessing cannabis was still illegal and that was not at all comfortable for me. I had to be very careful not to give away the fact that I was a recreational marijuana user. And that’s just no way to be. But that’s the way it was before there was anything like a local cannabis spot. Now, I just stroll into the cannabis dispensary at my leisure. This place has just about any sort of cannabis product one could even imagine. I’m particularly taken with the selection of hybrid strains for sale. This is sort of all new to me. But one thing is for sure. Each time I walk into any cannabis dispensary, I’m grateful and I recognize that I’m actually shopping for cannabis products legally.
