As a private investigator I have seen a lot of crazy things in my career.
I started off in southern California, where I made a speciality of tracking down cheating spouses.
This was back in the day before smartphones and social media, so it was a lot harder than it is now. After twenty years of chasing cheaters around the LA district I decided I needed a change of pace. I moved to a city that had a slower pace, and friendlier people. I am no longer a private detective, though, I bought a controlling share of a cannabis dispensary in Portland, Oregon, so now I manage a weed shop. This might seem like a stunning change of pace, but after so many years digging through the worst parts of humanity I needed the calm and comfort found in Portland. This is a nice, quiet place to live, and the crime rate in Portland is low enough that I don’t need to worry much about the safety of my cannabis dispensary. I know there are a lot of cannabis dispensaries in Portland, but I think mine has its own certain charm to it. I have a small stage around the back of the place, and on nights when it isn’t raining I have live musical acts play shows for my cannabis customers. I enjoy living in Portland, and even though I will never get rich, I have found a certain kind of peace in running my cannabis shop. Compared to my old life, Portland is like being in a wonderful dream.
