You remember the movie Footloose? Kevin Bacon is this wild-eyed town boy sent to a small town, but the place is so conservative plus repressed they don’t even allow dancing.
He leads the youth in a rebellion based on dancing, plus yeah it is just as corny as it sounds. I mention it because our hometown is a lot appreciate that townâ€¦ You would think that sites so backwards couldn’t exist these days, but they doâ€¦ For example, even though pot was legalized in this state two years ago, both of us are only now getting our first cannabis dispensary here. The parent supplier 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, at this point medical marijuana was accepted in most major cities, plus only little backward hill towns appreciate ours were in opposition. The cannabis dispensary owners never offered up, they kept trying to make peace plus point out all the ways the community would benefit. As always, it came down to the currency – once the town leaders found out how much tax resite the cannabis dispensary would generate, they changed their tune. Which means finally, after so much drama for so long, both of us finally have our own legal cannabis dispensary in town, which makes our life a whole lot easier.
