Name: Chris Fletcher
Position: Transport Agent
How long have you been with MCR?
I think 2 years and a month, something like that.
What made you want to work for the company?
I knew Scott, and I was trying to get into the industry. I wasn’t having much luck at any of the other establishments that were just starting out so I decided to apply for the driving job here. It all worked out well and I’m glad I did because I much prefer working here. I like going to the different dispensaries and checking them out, so this is the perfect opportunity.
What’s an average workday look like for you?
I usually get in early, around a half hour before we have to leave and load up the van with the pelicans and supplies for picking up samples. We clean the van and sterilize everything before we leave. We typically have five to six stops in a day, sometimes less but not much more than that though.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
Going to the different dispensaries and seeing what they have.
What’s it like to see that much cannabis product on a daily basis?
I love it – it’s interesting. It was overwhelming at the beginning but now I really enjoy it. I like seeing all the different strains out there and the smells. When you enter the vaults, the smell hits you. It’s very pleasant.
What’s the most interesting fact you’ve learned about cannabis since you started?
It has so many medicinal benefits. I didn’t realize it had so many.
What excites you the most about cannabis and the rapidly growing industry?
Things are changing all the time. You almost can’t keep up with it. All the new products coming out – it’s interesting.
What’s your personal relationship like with cannabis?
I definitely do, since I was young. I use it to relax. I use it for pain and for sleep.
What’s your favorite strain?
One of my favorites is Granddaddy Purple for the nighttime. Chocolate OG – I like that one. I could rack off a load of them but there’s so many and they’re so good.
What’s your favorite way to consume?
I’d say smoking it still. As long as it’s nice, not dried out flowers, it’s just beautiful. It’s perfect. I do like edibles and I like vape.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I like to rollerblade and bike, cycle. I like to go hiking and I like to smoke a bit of weed when I go hiking. I like to go to the beach and hang out there.
