I wouldn’t have thought working for a huge corporation would result in such a good career trajectory.
While I was merely a phone representative in a call center when I started, now I am a junior executive and was given the choice of moving to one of four different locations across the country.
Some people would have chosen the city with the warmest temperatures, but I was already sick of living in the south for so many years. Not to mention there was something else on my mind—cannabis. My home state still lacks any form of legal cannabis to this day. They tried to vote on legalizing medical marijuana, but it didn’t garner enough votes. So when my company gave me a set of options for where I would want to move, I prioritized marijuana availability. That’s why I ultimately chose Eugene, Oregon as my new city. Oregon has had recreational cannabis since 2015 and there are at least two dozen different cannabis dispensaries in Eugene alone. There are so many places to buy weed in Eugene that I still haven’t visited every single weed store at least once. Some of them carry better cannabis stores than others, and of course they’re not all equally easy to reach. I don’t like having to jump on interstate 5 to visit a cannabis dispensary on the opposite side of the city, so I try to find the best weed in my immediate neighborhood. Thankfully my closet marijuana store has good cannabis flower products and edibles. I hear that they will have concentrates like oil and hashish soon, but they haven’t announced the exact release date yet.
