Recently I told you a little bit about my management style at the cannabis dispensary.
I am a very low-key type of guy, and my store reflects this attitude.
I don’t want to pressure people into making big purchases, like so many other cannabis dispensaries do. I like to talk to my customers, find out about their lives and what they need, and then provide the best possible options for them. This means I spend most of my time just talking to people and getting to know them. One question that comes up a lot at the cannabis dispensary is the significance of April 20th aka 4/20, and why it is so important to potheads. Much to my surprise, no one seems to know the real reason… and perhaps that’s because there is no real reason. Every person I ask at the cannabis dispensary gives me a different explanation, no two are ever the same. One gentleman told me that 420 was the police code for cannabis possession, but I looked it up online and that isn’t true. An older woman who I have known for years said that 420 was military slang that started in the Hawaiian island, so the soldiers could discuss cannabis over the coms. My favorite story is that 420 was named after the first man incarcerated in this country for growing cannabis. The man had 420 cannabis plants, so was given 420 months in jail for the crime. For the record, I don’t believe any of these stories but I still love to hear them.
