What does the dispensary think about all this?
"First of all, we appreciate the entrepreneurial wherewithal to set up a stand outside of a dispensary. It's very impressive, and puts a lot of hope in my mind, regarding the bright future for our up-and-coming youth. If they are able to distinguish potential markets, and take advantage of them like this, it's a good thing for our future economy," Justin Hames, the manager at Foster Buds, told me.
He then made the point that it's not uncommon to see Girl Scouts outside grocery or convenience stores that sell cigarettes and alcohol, and no one has any problem with that -- so what's the difference with legal weed? Which is... kind of a good argument, actually.
"The girl was supervised the entire time, she was about 100ft away from our door, and she ended up making a lot of money and making a lot of people happy -- I definitely do not think there's anything wrong with that. All we've gotten was positive responses so far. It's a positive story, at a time where all we are seeing is negativity in the news."
