I got offered a new job on the other side of the country so I decided to look at all of the pros and cons before making my decision.
One thing that definitely made my decision easier was the fact that recreational and medical marijuana are both legal in the place where I was offered a job.
I currently use medical marijuana products and I have to pay a fortune in fees to the state, doctor, and dispensary. I looked at the prices of medical marijuana in the state where I was offered a job and they were much less than the prices anywhere else. Being 45 minutes away from the beach sounded great too. There were a lot of perks that made it impossible to turn down the job offer. My mom and dad were not happy that I decided to take the job offer, but they helped me pack up everything in my apartment and my dad drove the U-Haul across the country. He flew back home after we made the drive. Before he left, he told me that he knew that I was there for a lot of different reasons and he understood why I needed to be on the west coast. He wished me a lot of good luck and he said that he would promise to visit with my mom as soon as the weather was nice and the flights were cheap. It’s been 6 months since I moved and I am very happy with my decision. I enjoy being closer to the medical and recreational marijuana products that I want even if it means being further away from my family.
