I have a good security officer outside of the marijuana dispensary and the guy is constantly alert and ready for anything.
The security officer always stands at the front door, and he checks identification cards as clients come up to the building.
The security officer is the first person to look at the identification cards for our clients. If the security officer doesn’t know the identification card is real, he doesn’t have to let the buyer into the building. We’ve never had any concerns until this week. A young man came to the marijuana dispensary and expected the security officer to actually and finally let him into the building. Unluckily, the child clearly had a fake id. The security officer confiscated the fake ID and refused to let the young man into the building. The young guys did not want to take no for an answer. He started yelling and screaming and began to cause a scene in the parking lot. I asked the security guard if he was entirely sure that the identification card wasn’t real. The security officer was convinced that he was correct, so I did not let the buyer into the store. In fact, I threatened to call the police if the child didn’t stop making a scene. I was really serious too. I would have contacted the police. The child did not want to stay to find out if I was absolutely going to make the call. Shortly after I threatened to call the police, he walked away from the recreational and medical marijuana store and disappeared down the street.
