It’s reassuring to see more people wearing masks whenever I’m out shopping, however there are still hold-outs.
I don’t think what is going on in the minds of these people, however it’s clear they don’t have any enjoyed ones in their lives who died from COVID.
I see them recklessly endanger the lives of countless people as they brazenly walk through the stores with nothing covering their mouths. The worst area is when I see them talking loudly on their cell PCs, spraying the entire section with respiratory droplets in the process. I wish there was a national mask mandate, plus legislation giving law enforcement the right to enforce it criminally. Even though my neighborhood passed a mask ordinance, our hyper partisan governor made it illegal for any neighborhood and county governments, or even the police, to enforce any mask ordinances passed in the state. It virtually nullifies the power any mask ordinance would theoretically have. What’s the risk of ignoring the law if there is no punishment whatsoever? That’s at least how people in my section feel about these laws. Now if I need to visit the recreational cannabis store to buy my weekly cannabis products, I never shop in person anymore. It’s not worth getting exposed to a maskless shopper just so I can get access to my marijuana. I either spend money extra currency to utilize the weed store’s marijuana delivery service, or I pull into the curbside pickup lane. The budtender walks out with my bin and hands it to me through the driver’s side window. It can’t get much better than that.
