What a time to be alive.
I know the COVID stuff was scary, and everything got mixed up, but if you ask me it was for the best.
It may be an unpopular opinion, but something like this was bound to happen sooner or later. Things are changing, society is evolving, and speaking as a hermit and a misanthrope who prefers being alone, I think it is beneficial. The trivial stuff that I never really needed in the first place (like going to the movies, or going out to eat) has been phased out, and the important stuff (like the cannabis dispensary) evolved to continue serving their clients. People who have never been to a cannabis dispensary probably think they are like the old style of “head shop” that used to exist back in the day, but that isn’t true. A modern cannabis dispensary is as professional, clean, and well staffed as any pharmacy you can walk into. Cannabis is medicine, CBD oil is medicine, and so these places are never staffed with lazy potheads getting stoned all day. When the pandemic made the cannabis dispensary close its doors, the staff immediately started to build their online presence, and move the shopping experience onto a new website. It lacks the personal touch of actually walking around the cannabis dispensary and seeing what appeals to you that day, but that’s a small price to pay for continued service. My cannabis dispensary was only closed for three days before they launched the new site, and the cannabis delivery service that went along with it.
