On the CBD side of town

Doing their part for neighborhood preservation, I guess:

For rent, none of that medical marijuana crap

David Dishman writes in the Oklahoman:

Medical marijuana as an industry is booming in Oklahoma, with sales, patients, growers, processors and dispensaries continuing to increase throughout the state.

But while it may seem like there is a dispensary on every corner, not every property owner is open to leasing to marijuana-related businesses.

“If you look at the numbers, we are way oversaturated on retail dispensaries,” University of Central Oklahoma professor David Chapman said. “Here’s the fear … the brokers get calls all day long about dispensaries, and we’re all starting to feel like some of them are going to start to fail.”

It’s just a matter of time before somebody puts a dispensary into a Starbucks — or a Starbucks into a dispensary.

    1980s: video rental places on every corner
    1990s: tanning salons on every corner
    2000s: nail salons on every corner
    late 2010s: medical MJ places on every corner.

    I figure that buildings just keep getting recycled for the next group that think they’ve solved the ?????? part of the “Underpants Gnome” equation.

    FJ- Good one, but the last two on your last are not going away any time soon. Everyone I know of, who has a card, is “committed to the project”, for a long time to come.

    I LOVE the idea of stopping in for caffeine and cannabis at one quick stop. Even better will be home delivery of both, from good old Amazon. Do not put it past them.

    Which you don’t have to rewind, unlike VHS.
