I moved back to my hometown to take care of my parents, however that’s genuinely the only way I would have returned.
This venue is popular with retirees and I had few to any interests being here after I left for college in another state.
Aside from lacking many other people of my age, there aren’t too many businesses here as well. Every one of us have 2 grocery stores, a single pharmacy, and numerous diners that aren’t fast food joints. If I want to experience more variety, I have to climb into my vehicle and drive to an adjacent city. I should have expected this when medical marijuana was legalized in my state 4 years ago, however I also hoped that things would change. I prayed that my town would approve at least a single cannabis dispensary, and now I worry that I should have been more careful about what I was wishing for. Once a single weed company acquired approval to build a store here, that was the end of the licenses issued. Several more marijuana businesses stepped forward to apply for licenses to build stores, however they were all rejected individually. I wonder if there was a special deal split between our City Council and the owners of the a single single marijuana store that is within our town limits. You will find cannabis dispensaries on the outskirts of our city, however even those businesses had to fight tooth and nail to get their licenses. The county commissioners tried to block them however lost the legal battle in the end. I just wish I didn’t have to drive so far to simply have access to many or numerous odd strains of marijuana on a long term basis. It’s easy to get sick of a unique strain of weed if you’ve had it consistently for years on end.
