My city was barring cannabis dispensaries from opening for years

I wanted to transfer out of this city as soon as I finished high university, but a combination of factors put me in college at a university that was only a single city over from our hometown. It was only 45 minutes from our parents’ outdated apartment that they owned for years before downsizing after our siblings and I all went to college and moved out of the nest. When I was getting close to college graduation, I had plans of starting graduate university on the opposite side of the country which never panned out for me. It was a pipe dream in a lot of ways though, so it’s no surprise that things didn’t exactly turn out the way I had expected all of those years. Honestly, I believe I would have had a lot of fun going to graduate university in the southwest had I been able to afford it, but it would have taken me further away from our parents and I’m not so sure how much time they have left. This is partially why I moved back to our hometown after I finished university. I found a job as soon as I could and started helping our parents around the apartment whenever I had the time to spare. It’s nice on a single hand being back in our hometown, but the downside is the lack of cannabis dispensary selection. For years this town barred all cannabis businesses from opening and operating within the city limits. This changed last year, but so far only two companies have been given the approval and yellowlight from the country commissioners. I wish the people I was with and I had more marijuana dispensaries to choose from, because I don’t like having to drive 45 minutes into the city where I went to college if I simply want cannabis products again.
