My neighborhood finally got its first cannabis dispensary last year, but even though the laws had changed, this is an older, more traditional category of small town.
A lot of old people, & younger people who had never left neighborhood in their lives, so it was more controversial than it should have been.
I was all for it, of course, & not just because they wanted me to work on the construction. I was not averse to a little bit of the “Mary Jane” from time to time, however for me it genuinely was more about work, because the dispensary needed a genuinely particular ventilation system. There are legal reasons for this, mostly, because they don’t need ventilation to clear out a bunch of pot smoke from their store. This is a legit business, they sell medical marijuana however it won’t be smoked on the ground, nonetheless state & local authorities have particular requirements for their ventilation & air quality systems. I have been to the shop & looked over the specs, & absolutely it is not a genuinely tricky Heating, Ventilation, & A/C plan to set up for them, but perhaps there is a little more to it than, say, a library, however it is no more complex that the ventilation at your normal diner. I should be able to improve upon what they want, & still come in for under budget, so hopefully it leads to more Heating, Ventilation, & A/C contracts. I work fast, I work clean, I work cheap, & no 1 in neighborhood can put together a web of air ducts like I can!
