All of the medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries have a security guard that rests in front of the building.
Some of the security guards are outside and some of them remain inside.
I’ve honestly never been to a medical and recreational marijuana dispensary that didn’t have an armed security guard on staff. Several weeks back, my friends and I went to the medical and recreational marijuana dispensary to get some products! The group of us were kneeling outside in line, waiting for our turn to shop. Store only allows 10 people inside at a time, although I was patiently waiting my turn! A couple of the guys in front of myself and others started complaining about the long wait. They started making jokes about taking down the security guard so they could walk straight into the store and take whatever they wished. The security guard overheard those jokes and walked over to the guys. I heard the officer tell the guys to settle down and they made another joke about the security officer being entirely scared. At that point, I heard the security guard’s voice get louder. She suggested the several guys stop talking and stand quietly while they wait or she was going to escort them off the property by any means necessary. I could tell the security officer wasn’t playing games. She had a drastic look on her face and her hand was on her weapon holster. The guys made the choice to quiet down after that, although I was honestly worried that there might be a brawl in the parking lot of the dispensary. The security guard was ready to take these guys on.
