You bring them into your house, you hand over your hard-earned cash to them, and you get high with them. But how well do you really know your weed delivery guys? Welcome back to “Ask a Weed Dealer,” where we ask our friendly neighborhood marijuana peddler all the hot quezztions, and get some real-talk answers. In the previous episode, our dealer told us the scary-as-hell story of getting busted by the cops. Today, we’re saying goodbye to our faithful dope dude. We’re chatting about what the future’s got in store for him, and his big fears about leaving the biz.

Do you think you’ll quit?

At some point, I have to. With this job, there’s no retirement, there’s no 401K. I’m not adding anything to my social security. Business has slowed down quite a bit. I’m actually trying to find a second job, trying to make a segue. But right now, all I’m finding are full-time “business” jobs. I just want to be a fucking barista! And I’m applying to places that are looking, but there are so many people looking for the same kind of jobs I am. Nobody wants to hire a part-time person who’s also a weed dealer. Unless I can find a 9-to-5 job that would allow me to do deliveries on the side…. Wait-service jobs, I’m not finding them.

I mean, I do want to quit. It scares me—I have no retirement fund. I’m like, “What the fuck am I gonna do?” It isn’t forever, I always knew that. But fuck, I’ve been doing it for 10 years! Essentially I’m my own boss, I get to bike around the city, I get to do what I want. It’s an easy job, and it’s hard to quit. I’m making cash, tax-free. And when things were rolling, I was able to save a bunch of money, I was doing well. Now, things aren’t exactly rolling. I had a job interview at this one coffee place that was full-time, and they were paying 10 bucks an hour. But I’m like, “How the fuck am I gonna live on 10 bucks an hour?”
