The dispensary started this pick service while we were in the pandemic, but the city has since made it illegal altogether
I told myself that I would never live in my hometown past my high school days, however I returned as soon as I graduated from undergraduate university. My parents were seeking help at their supplier and most of my old friends had all moved to separate places throughout the country. Unluckily, my original town is full of mostly ancient people. It should surprise no one in the least that the city council is full of ancient people as well. When a local restaurateur tried to open a small night club downtown, the whole plan was immediately thrown out. They have especially strict sound ordinances that make almost all live music not doable unless you’re performing on acoustic instruments. Despite our city’s age bias, I truly was not expecting them to outright ban cannabis dispensaries at first when the statewide constitutional amendment for medical marijuana was passed in 2016. When my city finally permitted cannabis dispensaries within the city limits, they brought about strict rules for supplier hours. Cannabis dispensaries here are not permitted to stay open past 7pm and must stay closed on Sundays. It’s frustrating if I get out of work late and can’t make it to the dispensary by 6pm when they start closing the doors for the night hours. If the dispensary has a ton of people waiting in the lobby, they will lock the entrance before it’s time to close. Whenever that happens, I either have to wait a day or drive to another city half an hour away. The most bothersome rule they enacted was banning curbside pickup. The dispensary started this pick service while we were in the pandemic, but the city has since made it illegal altogether. I don’t understand their rationale for this at all.
