I had to move across the country after my old job disappeared.
The corporation folded and I was abruptly unemployed with bills waiting to be paid. I instantly started searching websites like Craigslist and Indeed at least 2 times a afternoon. Many don’t realize that job listings are a first come, first serve opportunity that can disappear in a matter of hours if the right person applies hastily enough. Looking once an afternoon is the bare minimum, you should look more often than that if you’re dire about finding work. When I finally did, it was with another old town newspaper after the previous one had survived since 1926. As I settled in at our new apartment, I remembered that this state had recently legalized medical cannabis for any citizens with an illness deemed worthy of a marijuana prescription by a licensed physician. I started looking around and found a doctor in our city, roughly 10 minutes away from my apartment. When I called, I asked them what kind of paperwork I needed to get the process started with becoming a legal medical cannabis patient. Unluckily, you have to be a state resident to qualify for a medical marijuana recommendation. Since I had just moved, I didn’t qualify for residency yet from the state. However, the department of health, the state body that manages the medical marijuana registry, told me that I could qualify for a medical marijuana recommendation once I had paid my electricity bill once and had the receipt to prove it. At that point, I just need to make an appointment with the medical marijuana doctor. Best of all, the dispensaries in our town all have delivery services available to patients for free.
