Occasionally, listeners will drop off gifts for station staff. Usually it’s a baked goods, pizza, or some other Jersey delicacy. Sometimes it will even be some kind of homemade craft.
Most of the time, the goodies are collected quite quickly.
Tuesday afternoon was a first for us. A regular listener who delivers cookies and other goodies for a price, then throws away legal marijuana as a gift, decided to give us some!
Knowing who participates in the station was a pretty easy decision who to give it to. If we had left it on the table I’m sure it would have gone as fast as the donuts that usually appear.
As usual, the state of New Jersey can’t go its own way when it comes to setting up legal dispensaries for recreational marijuana. Since you can’t sell it yet, but it’s not illegal to own less than 6 ounces, the open market has found a way to deliver it right to your doorstep.
So, companies sell expensive popcorn or cookies at a crazy price you would never pay for those items, and they throw away weed as a gift. It is not known when the legislature will pull itself together and put in place a system for the commercial sale of recreational marijuana.
Nice people at Cookie Time NJ have very good cookies. As for the gift they left with the cookies, I have to let you know how our “staff member” rated it.
