This area is made up mostly of old farms, and little outcroppings of homes and businesses.
These aren’t proper towns, it’s more like a handful of people living near a gas station or a convenience store.
The nearest Walmart is forty miles away, if that tells you anything. There are many small businesses out here, but one area that lags are public services like cops, ambulances, and garbage trucks. If you need a police officer, usually you need to wait thirty minutes to an hour before anyone shows up. Since I own a small medical cannabis dispensary, I have to provide my own private security because the cops can’t possibly help me until it’s too late. What really got me serious about security was a story I read online about a crew of thieves that targeted medical cannabis shops. Due to federal laws, cannabis dispensaries are not allowed to take credit cards, which means they often have a lot of cash on hand. Since I only get to the bank once every 2 weeks, there are times when my cannabis dispensary has over $50,000 in the safe! That is a whole lot of money, and being this remote makes my cannabis dispensary a prime target for robbery. This is why I hired Dale as my “Head of Security” for the cannabis dispensary. Dale has a big shotgun, and every night he parks his truck in front of my medical cannabis shop and listens to country music. Anyone who wants to break into my medical cannabis shop has to get through Dale, and his double barrel shotgun!
