1st thing this afternoon I went down to the gas station.
Because the storm is supposed to hit the area tomorrow, there was a long line of cars waiting for gasoline.
After that I went to the grocery store, where there was also a long line! When a hurricane this nasty starts getting close, everyone runs out to gather their supplies. After finishing up at the grocery store, I walked next door to the liquor store and loaded up on Coors Light and bourbon; Finally, I went to the cannabis dispensary, and found the biggest line of the afternoon! It seems that everyone had the same idea, which was to load up on cannabis supplies in case the storm wipes us all out. Normally the wait time at the cannabis dispensary is no more than an hour, however today I had to wait for almost 2. There are a lot of rules and regulations from the state about the operation of a legal cannabis dispensary. Basically they place a ton of extra restrictions on these suppliers because they are still butthurt about losing the popular vote for cannabis legalization. The stodgy old politicians who run the state were strongly opposed to cannabis reform, however the voters overruled them! It’s times like this that I like our democracy. The new laws state that only 6 shoppers can be inside the cannabis dispensary at one time, which is why the wait time is so long! After about an hour I finally got inside the cannabis dispensary and loaded up on all the storm supplies I need for the coming week.
