California put the legalization of pot on the map. Pot transitioned from the alleyways to the mainstream. The California Gold Rush struck twice; two friends of mine were smart and lucky enough to get legal and open up a dispensary. Now their medical dispensary isn’t the best looking shop, but it takes care of the patient needs. It just needs more commitment and a little TLC. The best part of working in a dispensary, besides the endless amounts of free bud, is the amazing people that visit on a day-to-day basis. I’ve found out there are a wide variety of people who smoke kush. You have the liberated mother who has raised all her children and is now a cougar getting back in tune with herself.
