Last month a brand new owner bought the marijuana dispensary where I work.
The company was sold for $25 million.
It sounds like a lot of money, but it is actually a very low price for a marijuana dispensary that is still open and functioning. The owner of the marijuana dispensary wanted to retire and move down south. The guy sold the marijuana dispensary for pennies on the dollar. Unfortunately for everyone that works at the marijuana dispensary, the new owner is all about business. He doesn’t seem to care at all about the employees. He already took away the employee benefits program that gave us 30% off all of our purchases from the marijuana dispensary. I also heard that the rate for our insurance was going up because the boss was not going to be paying any percentage. The marijuana dispensary has brand new software to keep track of the sales in the store. The new software is confusing and hard to understand, so there is a company coming to the marijuana shop on Saturday to explain how the software works. I have to go to the store on Saturday, even though it is my day off. I have to sit there from 9:00 in the morning until 4:00 in the afternoon. I get paid my normal hourly wage, but I lose all the benefits of having a Saturday off. I’m really bummed out about the meeting to talk about the marijuana dispensary software, because I was supposed to hang out with my friends and go to the bay for the day.
