It’s only a matter of time before one of the other cannabis shops starts doing home delivery again, and when that happens I may transfer to get a new position.
I know this town has a problem with crime, but this is getting ridiculous! About six months ago there was a series of robberies of delivery drivers. One guy from Dominos actually got stabbed in the thigh, can you believe it! Soon after, everyone stopped offering deliveries. Even the drivers from DoorDash were warned to only meet clients in a public place and never go to a private address. I work for the cannabis dispensary, and I used to be a delivery driver. It was the best job I ever had! Now I work inside the store doing security, checking IDs and cannabis prescriptions cards when customers first come in. I want to get back out on the road, but it’s just not happening. I never got robbed, but one of the other cannabis drivers did, and he quit soon after claiming he had PTSD. To protect the employees of the cannabis shop, the owner stopped deliveries altogether, now it’s done through in-store pickup only. It’s only a matter of time before one of the other cannabis shops starts doing home delivery again, and when that happens I may transfer to get a new position. As much as I enjoy the cannabis shop, and the other employees, I’m just not happy unless I’m driving. I’ve thought about doing a black-market cannabis delivery service, but I don’t want to risk going to jail over doing this unofficially. I have not heard about this kind of thing happening in other towns, so maybe it’s just a local phenomenon for our cannabis delivery drivers.
