My mom found out about a job that was available and she told me to apply.
The job was at a medical marijuana dispensary. The medical marijuana dispensary was not open for business yet. They were still in the construction phase, but my mom found out that they were accepting applications at the actual property. She urged me to go to the store to fill out an application. I thought it would be a lot of fun to work at a dispensary. I spent the morning working on my resume so it looked good when I turned it in. I didn’t see anyone outside of the marijuana dispensary when I arrived. I was going to leave and then a construction worker yelled for me. The guy told me that the back door was open and the manager was inside. The guy was like an angel. I was just about to leave and he changed my life. The manager saw my application and all of my sales experience. She asked me if I could pass a background check. We talked for a half an hour and then she told me that the job was mine if I wanted it. All I had to do was attend a 6-hour marijuana education class. It was even paid for and lunch was provided, so why would anyone say no. The class was held on the Saturday before the marijuana dispensary opened up for business. I got to meet several of the other staff members on that day. I didn’t know any of the people, but a couple of the younger folks seemed like they would be a lot of fun to hang with after work.
