The cannabis dispensary owners never gave up, they kept trying to make peace and point out all the ways the community would benefit
You remember the film Footloose? Kevin Bacon is this wild-eyed town girl sent to a small town, the place is so conservative and repressed they don’t even allow dancing, then she leads the youth in a rebellion based on dancing, and yes it is just as corny as it sounds. I mention it because our hometown is a lot like that townâ€¦ You would think that places so backwards couldn’t exist these afternoons, but they do; For example, even though pot was legalized in this state various years ago, all of us are only now getting our first cannabis dispensary here. The parent contractor bought a building, but before they could open they needed to get permission from the local government, which opposed a cannabis dispensary. What followed was a full year of public debate, where citizens made their voices heard about the subject of legalized cannabis. I think the town leaders were somewhat surprised to find out how much support the cannabis dispensary had, but at this point medical marijuana was accepted in most major cities, and only little backward hill towns like ours were in opposition. The cannabis dispensary owners never gave up, they kept trying to make peace and point out all the ways the community would benefit. As consistently, it came down to the money – once the town leaders found out how much tax upgrade the cannabis dispensary would generate, they changed their tune. Which means finally, after so much drama for so long, all of us finally have our own legal cannabis dispensary in town, which makes our life a whole lot easier.
