Just got home from Natures Wonder in Apache Junction, Az.. NOT a good experience.
Haven't been there in a long time even though it is just half a mile or less from me.
Last time there I was very uncomfortable by all the customers not wearing masks.
Also, I noticed on the door going in a sign saying "new patients" specials were being discontinued.
I already knew they had stopped giving a pre-roll for reviews. (you don't have to give me one for this)
Upon entering, I noticed a big burly young man standing in the middle of the waiting area not wearing a mask.
I gave the girl my ID and said I'd be waiting outside.
While waiting outside, I saw more people entering not wearing masks.
Not sure if the girl behind the window had heard me when I said I'd be waiting outside, I went back inside.
I also had a question.
As I was walking back in, the big burly guy was going to the back.
I went to the window and asked the girl why, since this is a "medical" marijuana facility catering to a lot of people with real medical conditions (not just those who want to indulge because it isn't/wasn't legal) ...why they don't insist everyone entering wear a mask???
She proceeded to give me the old standard excuses:
"the owner says because it's not mandated..."
"people make their own decisions"
"we can't make...."
I asked if they just insisted people coming in wore a mask and if not they would not serve them???
Got some more excuses.
I know those going to a casino...if they want to go in, HAVE TO WEAR A MASK.
(so people will follow a mask mandate if they want something and it us understood that unless they follow the rules, they will not be allowed. It might mean hiring some security, but they should have that anyway...don't know why they don't...$$$?)
I asked if it was the $$$ they thought they would loose?
But by not putting a policy in that protects the health of your patients and professing to "care about your health"???
I told her that I had stopped coming there a long time ago...just stopped by today because I had been
up all night and didn't feel like driving to Queen Creek to Reef.
Again, I told her I would be outside.
As I turned to exit, about 3 or 4 people sitting in the waiting room were looking at me...and giving me a "YES" nod.
(they were wearing masks)
I exited and was waiting outside again (a couple more maskless people entered).
When my "bud-tender" came out to get me, I noticed...she wasn't wearing a mask.
I swore to myself...never again.
I reluctantly went in.
When I got back in the "bud room", I noticed that 3 out of 4 staff back there were maskless.
I wonder if they are copping out on the mask enforcement just like our politicians ...afraid of protests
by tough, biker types that hang out on the corner the Trail and Phelps waving big flags for a particular politician???
I'm an old guy and don't know a lot of this "cancel culture" thing, but I think that if the people who are genuinely
concerned about health and want everyone at the businesses they patronize to be also, find another place to get their stuff...perhaps???
Wonder if any of their staff have been or are infected??? and the number of maskless people going in there...
Think I'll put this on my facebook page to warn my friends...wouldn't want any of them to die!
WILL NOT GO BACK!
ps...for those who insist in acting macho and rebellious, I think of all those who fought and died to protect their fellow Americans ...and some won't put on a mask to save others lives.
the hospitals are full of people who "thought this was fake/bs" , "god is stronger and will protect me", "my 'friends' don't and make fun of those who do...and they are cool and I want to be like/ accepted by them"...and on and on, you know the story.
The Drs. and nurses are overwhelmed sleepless, dying and you act like a spoiled little kid throwing a temper tantrum when you don't get your way. And I bet you are "religious" too! One thing I know you are ...
