I am attempting to pay for my college tuition with the money I earn at the cannabis dispensary.
This means I have to work a lot, almost every day of the week with very few days off.
I am a delivery driver, and to be honest I enjoy my work. I get to drive around all day listening to music and chatting with customers. Being a delivery guy is the best way to make money in this business, because of the tips. The hourly wage is okay, but still pretty close to minimum wage. As a cannabis delivery driver I often get gratuities from the grateful customers. The store policy is that tips are accepted but not encouraged. If my boss at the cannabis dispensary hears that one of his drivers has been soliciting tips, he will fire them on the spot. I never ask the customers for a tip, but usually they give me one anyway. Cannabis makes people feel generous, and I am in the right place at the right time to reap the benefits of that generosity. The only major hurdle I encounter is when customers want to “tip” me with a nugget of cannabis, and not with cash. I cannot pay my tuition, or buy my books with cannabis! In a perfect world I could, but the reality is that cash is more valuable to me than marijuana right now. I can’t even sell those cannabis tips for cash, because I work at a cannabis dispensary so nobody needs to buy second-hand weed. I’ll figure something out.
