Below is what Rachel wrties about her experience in dispensaries:
Medical Marijuana Dispensary Etiquette
There are a number of respectable dispensaries in the Denver area. However, some of the caregivers are disrespectable to their patients. And I am specifically meaning to the young attractive women patient coming in for treatment alone.
When a woman enters the dispensary, they should be treated with respect. A woman does not want to come in to meet someone or trade phone numbers for special weed. The dispensary is not a bar where a woman is looking to meet men or score deals for free weed in exchange for a date night.
I have many girlfriends who are afraid to enter some of the dispensaries alone because of their fear of dealing with such inappropriate and flirtatious behavior.
So no matter what laws the government puts in effect towards dispensaries in the future, I would suggest that we all enforce our own “chivalry rule” to treat patients with professional dignity. And in turn, I have a feeling the government will treat the caregivers with more respect as well for upholding professional standards.
It’s a win-win situation. More females will frequent the dispensaries and more caregivers will earn loyal return clients. No more “Jackflash” jokey offensive comments. Treat women patients like the “Wonder woman” marijuana she may need.
