Portray with broad strokes right here, issues are type of tough proper now. The planet’s on hearth, actually and figuratively, and there’s quite a bit to be nervous about. However, in a couple of methods, that is additionally a reasonably cool time to be alive (figuratively cool, as a result of one once more, the planet is on hearth). For example, weed is changing into or has change into authorized in a number of locations, like my house nation of Canada. Final Fall, weed was legalized at a federal stage, which meant a number of actually cool alternatives for companies opened up. All people and their canine now works within the weed trade, together with my sister, who shall stay anonymous as a result of I didn’t inform her I used to be penning this.
Earlier than I am going on, sure — I’m technically writing about myself. However solely in a small means, as a result of I’m truly writing about one thing that occurred to my sister, so that is solely a gentle abuse of editorial energy.
So, my sister works for an internet weed dispensary, which shall additionally stay anonymous. If you happen to thought 1-day Amazon Prime deliveries and Postmates are cool, wait until I inform you about on-line weed dispensaries. They function like another dispensary, they provide varied weed strains with extremely eloquent names and descriptions akin to classic bottles of wine at fancy eating places, in addition to merchandise like pre-rolled joints. SO useful, proper?? Nicely, it will get higher. As a result of weed is authorized throughout Canada, transport it throughout the nation is fairly easy. Which suggests… you may order weed the identical means you order a burger.
AMAZING. THE FUTURE IS NOW.
There are nonetheless age restrictions on weed purchases although, very like alcohol, so with a view to register with these on-line weed corporations, you must submit images or scans of two items of ID, back and front, for verification. The place does my sister match into all of this, you ask?
I’ll inform you.
A part of my sister’s job goes by means of these purposes and both approving or denying them, so she appears to be like at a number of ID’s, and possibly a number of faux ones. Often, when utilizing a faux ID, you need it to be as plausible as doable. So this was a shock.
Somebody legitimately tried to purchase weed utilizing a faux ID —
— as THOR, MARVEL HERO AND GOD OF THUNDER.
Please, if you’ll, be part of me in unpacking this.
- Thor — MIDDLE NAME THUNDER — Odinson
- Thor is outwardly FROM ALBERTA, CANADA. AS ALL NORSE GODS ARE.
- 49 years previous???
- This says he’s clocking in at 6’7” and solely 150lbs. Thor. Buddy. Come on. We all know that’s not true. All of us noticed Endgame.
- He lives at 69 BIG HAMMER LANE.
- Even when this was one way or the other a satisfactory faux, THE LICENSE IS EXPIRED.
So, I believe it goes with out saying that she needed to flip this utility down. I do know, I do know, you’re all most likely pondering, “What! No! He deserves to have weed simply due to how nice that is!” And whereas I agree with you, sadly federal legislation doesn’t have a humorousness, and it might be quite a bit more durable to textual content my sister if she was in jail. If it’s any comfort, she let this man down in one of the best ways doable.
NOTES FROM SLOANE
I made a decision to put in writing about this as a result of I tweeted screenshots of those texts from my sister as a result of I’ve no self management, and a LOT of publications picked up the story and wrote about it themselves, so it might’ve been dumb to not. Whereas I needed to preserve my sister and her firm nameless with a view to defend all events concerned and be certain that she doesn’t change into extra well-known than me, she has totally loved the truth that this story is actually everywhere in the web. To my sister, if you find yourself studying this, thanks for this glorious article fodder, and for not beating my ass if you noticed this story on the information.
