What Can I Expect from the Medical Dispensary?
You might feel nervous about your first visit even if you do everything you can to prepare. Here are some general guidelines.
A dispensary staff member can usually spot a newcomer within a mile! Although you might be a complete novice, dispensary staff is used to working with people with different levels of experience and needs. Ask as many questions and the staff will be able to answer them all. The staff will try to adapt the experience to meet your needs. Tell them what interests you and they will be able to assist you.
Some visitors who visit for the first time are often disconcerted by the level of security. You can expect security guards, cameras, and protected entrances. But this is common practice so don’t be alarmed. This security system is designed to ensure your safety.
There are rules and etiquette that you must follow when operating a medical marijuana dispensary. It will vary depending on which business you are working for. But, dispensaries generally don’t allow anyone to take pictures inside. It’s a good idea for you to inspect the signs and ask staff if you have any questions. A dispensary may have slightly different rules from a regular retail store.
Other than that, dispensaries should be treated the same way as any other store. You can give your customers space and privacy, for example. Also, avoid distracting other customers by leaving your phone on silent.
