The weekends are the busiest time at the marijuana dispensary in Albuquerque, where I work.
I work every weekend, because I can’t go to school and those are the only days that I don’t have classes.
Sometimes it sucks not to hang out with my friends when they are going somewhere fun for the day, but I have to have a job to help me pay for school. I was working in a restaurant when I found out about the job at the marijuana dispensary in Albuquerque. The place is a 15-minute bus ride from my dorm, but I use that time to study and read. I also listen to audiobooks on my phone. During the weekend days, most of the kids from the college visit the marijuana dispensary. You have to be 21 years or older in order to buy products from the dispensary, but only 18 with a medical card. There are a lot of Albuquerque students with a medical marijuana card. Last weekend was one of the busiest times that we have ever had since I have been working there. There was a line of kids waiting outside of the dispensary on Saturday morning and I feel like the line of people continued to pour through the building until late Sunday night. I didn’t get my 15 minute break at all on Saturday or Sunday and I was lucky that the boss even let me take a lunch break. I honestly think we were supposed to have another person at the front desk, because there’s usually two people and there was only one. Another person at check-in would have been very helpful.
