I was in a quandary about what I should tip for marijuana delivery.
I couldn’t find anything online that even hinted at tipping a marijuana delivery driver, but I thought it would be common courtesy.
I no longer drove, and they were doing me a big favor by delivering my medical marijuana to my house. When I called in my order, the budtender told me the marijuana delivery people didn’t expect tips, and they should not be asking for one. No one had ever asked for one, but I started thinking about the practice. When I was at a restaurant, we always tipped the server for doing a good job. If she did great, her tip was bigger. If she was a poor server, the tip showed that. I thought I should show the same courtesy to the marijuana delivery driver. The young man who brought my marijuana delivery was always on time and very courteous. Only one time did he not smile and be nice, and he seemed highly agitated. When I asked, he said he was fine, but I knew different. Had I been tipping regularly, I may have given him a smaller tip, but there would have been something extra for him. I was talking to my neighbor who also got medical marijuana delivery, and asked him what he tipped the marijuana delivery person. He said he tipped no one. He didn’t believe in giving money to people who were getting paid to do a job. He was quite rude, which made me more determined to pay the marijuana delivery person at least 10% of whatever my order was.
