I used to be a marijuana delivery driver

Long before the legal cannabis dispensaries started offering delivery, I was doing it from our rusty old van.

This was over 20 years ago, so there were no legal dispensaries at that point.

I was an independent operator, let’s call it, who was trying to labor hard & save up money for our growing family by selling weed. Previous to this point I had just sold from our apartment, but when our lady Jane got pregnant I had to completely change our whole business model. I didn’t mind storing pounds of cannabis in the house, but I couldn’t have all these random people coming in & out at all hours to buy it. The problem with stoners and potheads isn’t that they beginning trouble, but that they just want to smoke cannabis right away, & then lounge around & talk. I love to do that too, but only when I am with our friends, I treat our cannabis business love a business, without any socialization, however for this reason, I found I appreciated our modern business model a lot more – I could make cannabis deliveries, collect the currency, & go without having to make small talk. By delivering the cannabis instead of having the buyer come to me, our sales went up & so did our free time! I was no longer forced to share a bowl of cannabis with the purchaser as a social nicety, I could hit the road & drive to the next sale, but eventually I got out of the marijuana business entirely, but for two years the pot deliveries paid our bills & allowed myself and others to supply for Jane & our child.
