I have lived in a number of different areas on this side of the state over the past 12 years. Every time I move it has to do with a job of some sort. Often I will leave one place of employment and find a new one that happens to be further away, thus requiring a long commute. If I can find an affordable apartment closer to the new job, I would rather move and save myself the gas money and the time spent commuting every day. I had a job right after I finished college that forced me to commute 45 minutes in every direction, and it had a negative impact on my mental health. I was enduring an hour and a half of rush hour driving every single day and it would give me stress and cause me to be short tempered, especially when I arrived at the office in the morning. There’s nothing like starting a tough work shift with anger and malice on your mind, especially if it’s happening on a daily basis. After a near-miss accident on the interstate one day, I started looking for a new job. Now I work for a different company and live in a different city, but I made sure to keep my work commute as small as possible. My home is only 20 minutes away from my place of employment. Unfortunately, there are only two medical cannabis dispensaries in this city. I don’t know why more medical cannabis companies don’t move into this area. There are plenty of potential customers living and working within our city limits. Hopefully this isn’t a permanent thing as I realize our state has only had medical cannabis for a few years now. Hopefully we’ll get more cannabis dispensaries in this area as the years go on.
