I thought laboring as a cannabis delivery driver would help pay some of my bills, and I would meet some stoners like me.
- I was completely wrong.
Other than making sure it was the lady who had done the ordering, I had brief contact with the people I was delivering cannabis to. As far as meeting stoners, most of the cannabis deliveries went to people who used medical marijuana and weren’t buying it to get high. There was a big want for cannabis deliveries since the state legalized recreational marijuana. There were fewer people having marijuana delivery that were recreational marijuana users than there were medical marijuana users. I wasn’t meeting multiple people, or being invited back for partying, like I thought I would be. I was talking to another friend who said she was always getting invited to parties after making a marijuana delivery. I thought she was being truthful, but I soon found out she could not be. They finally warned us about going to parties or using marijuana while still on duty, or before duty, you were supposed to be sober for at least twenty-four hours before going on duty. I also asked the other marijuana delivery driver how she got invited to these parties when you seldom made contact with the customers. She finally said you had to have a personality that invited people to talk to you. You asked if they were having marijuana parties, and you had to invite yourself. I don’t really feel that’s how I want to be invited to a marijuana party. I’ll be the marijuana delivery driver.
