I’ve been using the same Denver financial institution for the past 10 years.
I hardly ever go into the branch.
I prefer using the drive-thru and Mobile Banking. I had to go into the bank on Monday to sign some paperwork for a loan. I told the officer at the front desk that I had an appointment with a loan officer. He told me to wait in a row of chairs in front of the offices. I sat down in the first chair and pulled out my phone to check my email. A bank teller walked behind me and the guy smells like marijuana. The order of marijuana was totally overwhelming. As the guy walked by, I said something out loud about smoking weed and the parking lot. The bank color smiled and continued walking. When I talked to the loan officer at the Denver financial institution, I mentioned the smell of weed coming from the bank teller. The woman told me that a lot of things have changed since marijuana has been legalized in Denver. Marijuana was legalized about 10 years ago and there are a number of dispensaries in the city that sell recreational and medical products. As long as you are 21 years of age with a valid Colorado license, you can legally purchase recreational marijuana supplies from a number of shops around the city. Many businesses don’t seem to care if their employees come to work under the influence. I happen to think that bank tellers and people who handle money regularly should have a clear head while on the job.
