All of the medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries have a security guard that typically rests in front of the building.
Certain security guards are outside and some of them choose to remain inside.
I certainly have never been to a medical and recreational marijuana store that didn’t have an armed security guard on staff. Several weeks ago, my good pals and I went to the medical and recreational marijuana dispensary to get a few things… The bunch of us were resting outside in line, waiting for our turn. This store only allows 10 people inside at a time, but we were all patiently waiting… A few men in front of myself and others started whining about the long wait. They started making numerous jokes about taking down the security guard so they could go into the store and take everything they wanted. The security guard overheard those jokes and walked over to the group of guys. I heard the officer tell the men to settle down and they made another joke about the security officer being completely scared. At that point, I heard the security guard’s voice get a great deal louder and deeper. He advised the three men to entirely stop talking and rest quietly while they wait or he was going to escort them off the property with brutal force if necessary. I could tell the security officer wasn’t playing any games at that point. He had a fairly extreme look on his face and his hand was on his weapon holster. The men decided to quiet down after that, but I was completely worried that there might be a brawl in the parking lot of the dispensary. The security guard looked like he was prepared to rumble.
