In our ongoing mission to celebrate the folks who make The Dispensary so great, we managed to pin down two more! We caught up with Marco and Marijana at The Dispensary Decatur for a quick chat about life on that side of the budtending counter.
Marco isn’t quite a Vegas native, but he’s pretty close, and he’s been budtending here at The Dispensary for the last two years. He does comedy outside of his work here, and he has first-hand experience about the creative benefits of cannabis. As a budtender, Marco loves interacting with people and turning customers into friends.
Personally, Marco’s a flower fan, and his favorite strain is Donny Burger. Good choice!
We asked Marco where he thought the cannabis industry is heading, and he predicts serious accessibility — as in, a spot on every corner where you can easily and legally buy cannabis. Think Starbucks and McDonald’s, just with cannabis. Guess we’ll see!
Straight out of Doboj, Serbia, Marijana is another budtender working on two years. She found her way behind the counter out of a personal love of cannabis and the huge personal benefits she’s found from this amazing little plant. It’s why she loves her job so much — there’s nothing like being first in line to check out all the new products dropping in the store. Plus, since this industry is booming in real time, Marijana is constantly learning something new and interesting.
Just like Marco, Marijana’s a flower fan. Her go-to is HanSolo Burger by The Real McCoy.
Same question for Marijana about the future of cannabis, and she’s predicting Vegas setting the standard for legal public consumption and as part of the social scene in bars and casinos. She’s also thinking cannabis bars may well be on their way.
Big thanks to Marco and Marijana for your expertise here at The Dispensary. We appreciate you! Check back soon for more budtender spotlights — we won’t stop until we get them all!
