I know that this is a very similar title to my most recent article, but I do think that the same thing applies. As we get to know more and more about weed, we will start figuring out just how much is too much for someone to be driving. I look forward to actually having that written down because I think that it is imperative for drivers and users to know what the regulations are. It is very difficult to follow the rules when the rules are not easily discernible. For example, I know that I should cross all streets at the crosswalk.
However, if jaywalking was something that was actually enforced and it only applied to some streets, it would be much more difficult for you to operate. It would lead to an increased number of tickets for jaywalking and that does not help anyone out. I would say that the same thing goes for drivers that use marijuana. They have no idea what it means to have five nanograms of weeks in their blood. It is a meaningless metric. That is why we need to develop a tool like, THC testing, so that we can give an accurate measurement to the drivers that are using THC and driving afterward. I know that people are going to do it, so it is the turn of the marijuana testing companies to step up and develop some regulatory tools for people to use. It makes it much more fair for those individuals if those tools are available.
Maybe you are over thinking all this hype about possibly needing to scale back on the amount of time you are spending on the dispensary. I understand that all your money is going into this sort of thing and that literally all you want to do is to be a part of this, but you need to really think about the fact that you are probably going to be doing this sort of thing a lot from now on because you are really pretty good at it. You have some sort of knack for opening stores that sell marijuana and I think that this is really a good thing.
You also love to indulge in the recreational and medicinal use of this drug. I applaud you for this. I would one day like to have the ability to think more clearly and to be able to think aloud when this sort of thing comes up. I know that there are a lot of people out there who are also in this same boat and they are thinking about the possibility of starting their own business. My personal thoughts on this are pretty clear: I do not think that you are supposed to do something like this unless it feels right. I have literally no prospects in the direction of rightness. I do not feel like everything is right at the moment. I feel like things are very out of balance and that nothing is really making any sense to me at the moment. But additionally, there is only going to be a few ways that this is going to work for me and the dispensaries.
Things had changed a lot in the last couple years but he didn’t have any reason to complain because things had gotten better for him. The legalization movement in Colorado had begun 5 years prior with medicinal use, now it was legal to possess up to an ounce without committing a crime, so the landscape had transformed a little bit. Many dispensary and grow operations have sprouted up all over the State and have helped struggling economies gain more from tax revenues from their sales. Before, it was sold on the black market and the economy wasn’t benefiting at all from it and it wasn’t being taxed. Now, it is taxed and a marijuana dispensary owner can be just as legitimate as a coffee store owner.
There are other businesses that exist now as well because of the growth of the marijuana industry, businesses like cannabis testing labs. When a grower or a dispensary wants to know the THC content of their product,
they take it to a THC testing lab to have it analyzed. The higher the THC levels, the higher of a price they can charge for it and the competition is stiff. Many people flocked to Colorado from other parts of the country for many different reasons pertaining to the marijuana industry. Some people have legitimate medical or pain issues that marijuana can help medicate, others have a more profitable idea in mind and want to grow here themselves. People feel more comfortable operating in a State with less stringent politics on marijuana.
The times were changing, kids grew up faster these days. I guess as we evolve as human beings, we invent new problems for ourselves along the way and learn to cope with them in different ways. People have been drinking some form of alcohol for ages, it’s still around today but so are so many other drugs and substances. My dad always told me, if it grows from the ground then it’s probably sound. I took that advice to heart when it came to my recreational activities. I only smoked marijuana, and I only smoked the kind that THC testing showed was of the highest quality. Sometimes I also like to eat an edible or two, the dispensary I patronize has a CBD test lab handle their quality control for their edibles so I always know exactly how much I can eat and still remain somewhat functional. It’s easy to eat too much THC otherwise, I’ve had friends make brownies numerous times and their effects are always unpredictable when you don’t know how much THC is in them. Too much and you’ll feel like sleeping the day away, not to mention getting a serious case of the munchies in the meantime.
Most my friends and I prefer marijuana over alcohol or other drugs, we’re called potheads and stoners but we don’t care. I’ve seen way too many people die or develop serious problems related to alcohol and other drugs. I, of course don’t ever want to feel like i’m dependent on anything or “self-medicating” as they say, but marijuana doesn’t disrupt my life and seems to relax me so I don’t consider it a bad thing.
