I recently earned a promotion at work.
I am no longer just a mere budtender, I am now the supervisor for the smokers lounge! This comes on the heels of me giving the boss an idea that generated a whole new revenue stream for the store.
Money talks, as they say, and since my idea made money, my boss was happy to give me a raise and a promotion. All I had to do was pitch an idea from my teenage years, when my friends and I would hang out at the comic book shop playing games all day. If the cannabis dispensary had a quiet, comfortable area where people could hang out, it would increase the chances of them spending more money in our shop. I contacted several local bookstores and gaming stores and told them about a special game night being sponsored by the cannabis dispensary. There was no purchase necessary, anyone who wanted to come to the cannabis dispensary could hang out and get stoned all day long. The word spread pretty quickly, and the first game night in the cannabis dispensary brought in about 2 dozen people. It wasn’t the best night of cannabis sales, but it was nice to have a store full of people. I was actually stoked at the results for the first night, because I knew it would grow over time, and before long there would be more gamers than we could fit into the cannabis dispensary at one time! Thank goodness that teenagers are still huge cannabis smokers, am I right?
