When I applied for my medical marijuana card, I never really thought I would get it. I was surprised when I got the paperwork in the mail so I could get the card. I now had to find a local cannabis dispensary so I could purchase my medical marijuana. I had no idea what to expect when I went into the cannabis dispensary. I was petrified and thinking that everyone was looking at me. I knew someone was going to come up to me and tell me I had to get out. I thought that I was too old to be in a cannabis dispensary and that I wouldn’t look sick enough to need a medical marijuana card. All different thoughts were going through my mind from the time I got out of my car until I walked into the dispensary. I was so paranoid that I kept looking around to see if someone was staring at me or if they were going to go home and tell my mother. I was shocked when I walked into the cannabis dispensary. I knew the woman who was working at the front counter. She told me she was a budtender and she had been working there since the dispensary opened. We talked about how she had to take special classes and even about the ongoing training she had to take. She immediately put me at ease and then she helped me choose the items that were going to help me the most. It was so nice to see a friendly face at the cannabis dispensary and I can only hope she is there the next time I return.
