How long have you been a Budtender? 
Four years

What’s you favorite product? 
Edibles because of their longer lasting effects. Specifically the Sativa Oatmeal Raisin Cookie.

What do you do when your not budtending?
I spend most of my time at home with my family, although I do enjoy a good concert. I also really enjoy photography.

Favorite local munchies?
Breakfast at Afternoon Delight is always delicious.

Sage budtender advice? 
Testing. There is no excuse for exposing yourself to medicine that has not been tested for quality and safety. Also less is more. You can always medicate a little more, however if you over due it from the start, your potential for a bad time goes way up. 

How did you get into the business?  
After deciding to treat myself with cannabis instead of prescriptions, I sought out other like minded individuals at a convention. It was very right place, right time.

What’s one misconception people have about working with MMJ?  
As cliche as is sounds, people think we just sit around and get high all day.

Green Book is Worth the Trip

An elite black pianist tours the segregated south with a white roughneck chauffeur. Green Book combines two crowd-pleasing formulas—the road movie and the true story—with two stellar lead actors, Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali. Mortensen plays Tony Lip, a white, working class second-generation Italian-American from the Bronx who works as a nightclub bouncer. Ali plays
