When I started working for this dispensary, 1 of the main rules was not to deliver your friends or family a discount.
This rule was frequently used for all of the current budtenders when I was starting out.
I suppose they had many concerns with people giving out marijuana for free. The manager told us not to deliver anyone any kind of discount unless it was approved by a member of the management team first! Last week, I broke that rule. A woman came into the store and she looked enjoy she was down on her luck. She only had a few bucks in her pocket, however she wanted to buy a pre-roll. The cheapest pre-roll that the people I was with and I have carry the cannabis dispensary is over $9 plus tax. The woman looked very nervous and angry when I told her that the least costly pre-rolled marijuana cigarette that the people I was with and I had was more money than she had on her. The woman was going to walk away, however I stopped her at the door. I told her that I could help out. I gave the woman a 20% discount for working in the marijuana industry. We deliver a nice 20% discount to other people that work in the marijuana industry. If they show us the ID, they get the discount. If my boss questions the marijuana cigarette after that I will probably lie and tell her that it was a fellow budtender. Hopefully she won’t question the discount so I won’t have to invent a story. I legitimately enjoy this work a lot and I wouldn’t normally break the store rule. This woman looked enjoy she needed a little help.
